Spyro the Dragon: Reignited Trilogy - November 13th, 2018 (PS4, Xbox One)

Recommended Posts

Okay 1st up those Steam requirements aren't final. As their placeholders, same would go for the Switch port cover. It's a placeholder, plus some regions don't have this download  required text.

Plus Nintendo will be releasing their 64GB Switch cartidges this year. So let's just wait & see, we'll see more final info much closer to release. And also possible DLC.

Never played Spyro before (unless the Seasons games count?), so I'm looking forward to trying this out on Switch. Crash didn't mesh with me at all, but Spyro looks much more like my deal.

Spyro is literally nowhere near as big to warrant it, and the idea they couldn't lessen it down further is fucking ridiculous. Case in point, Doom 2016 is 80GB on PS4, and that was ported to Switch with no issues.

Yeah, but that still required a download.

Plenty of games require downloads on Switch, because carts are more expensive than discs, so a lot of publishers don't want to spend the extra money on larger carts.

Spyro is better than Crash in every way.

And Spyro still isn't anywhere near big enough to justify needing a download. I can't believe this needs to be constantly said time and again - a HD remake of PS1 ERA GAMES should not justify 70GB worth of data, larger than GTA V, Spider Man PS4, or whatever else. Case in point, an update later pushed the data to 30GB. So again - the idea that Spyro is somehow magically too big to optimise is a load of nonsense.

Spyro 1 is the PSX equivalent to Banjo-Kazooie. The level design philosophy is a bit different, because of the differences in character abilities, but the general gameplay concept is pretty Rare-y. The main difference is the camera in all of the Spyro games was much better than anything Rare ever came up with.

 

2 and 3 are much closer in design to SM64; and other than being a bit short and having a section near the 2/3rd mark where the difficulty is briefly rather unreasonable, the former is pretty damn close to being just as good.

@Marcello In my mind, that's not a high bar at all.

Believe me, it isn't for me either. I was glad to be done with each Crash game, but Spyro, I finished each 100+% and got all the Trophies and wanted more. They're all great, but I'd say 2 is the best of the 3.

Crash seems to be getting a 4th game, so I hope Spyro is, too.

The more open-stage design of the original Spyro trilogy compared to the linear-stage layout of the Crash trilogy are a lot of fun to play through and graphically the stages look fantastic in the Reignited triogy. So I hope you'll like it.

In terms of difficulty, Spyro 1 (as Tornado said) is more designed like Banjo-Kazooie. The PS1 version had some very tricky platforming sections which can be frustrating. Thankfully the Reignited version improves over the orginal-makes it easier to navigate some of the tricky sections (accept for the double jump-gliding to long-distance platforms which is slightly harder to pull-off).

Spyro 2's level design is quite different from Spyro 1. More closely-knit layouts with a bit more backtracking (unlock abilities later in the game to be able to access areas you couldn't reach in earlier stages etc). Spyro 2 has the least amount stages compared to the 1&3 but take longer to beat due to more complex challenges. Spyro 2 has best story.

Spyro 3 is basically Spyro 2 but with a weaker story, a lot more padding and more playable characters which adds a bit more variety, their different play styles being hit and miss.

Once you get good you can 100% Spyro 1 in under 5 hours, and bit longer for 2&3 respectively.
