    The Reignited Trilogy comes in at exactly the right time and hits all the right notes. Spyro is just as accessible and fun for newcomers as he is for veterans, with updated visuals, audio and gameplay allowing everyone to really have a blast with these classic games. Whether you played Spyro 20 years ago and fell in love or just saw his mischievous face on the cover art and were intrigued, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is for you.

    The Spyro games were legitimately great for the time, though, and thanks to an near-perfect balance between preservation and updating, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is every bit as excellent by today’s standards.

    The Reignited Trilogy only helps cement the fact that the three original Spyro games are some of the best platformer/collectathons ever made.

    At the end of the day even if you were someone who played it twenty years ago, there’s still something completely satisfying about playing this revamped ode to the classic Spyro all this time later and that’s definitely something worth celebrating.

    Three of the most iconic PlayStation titles are back with a great new face. Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a great remade versions of these classics.

    A perfect gift for Spyro's fans. A colorful trio of adventures, right from the 90's. Those who loved Spyro will continue to love it, those who hated it will not change their minds.

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a good compilation with three excellent platform games from the first PlayStation. Redone from scratch, the game offers a nice new design with some technical flaws, and the gameplay feels a bit old, but it's still a good nostalgic trip for the whole family this Christmas.

It stays true to the originals with only the major graphic overhaul and some minor improvements in other areas (mostly menu related). The controls are fluid and responsive, nothing feels stiff at all. The price for all three games is damn good. Spyro was the first Playstation game I got back in the 90s and I loved it then, and it was strange realizing how dated the polygons looked when I tried revisiting it a few years ago. The dragons look fantastic. Being able to play this is a dream come true.

    These games aren't difficult by any means nor are they terribly long. If you played the Crash Bandicoot remaster then know this follows a similar formula as do most PS1 platformers.

    The flight levels could give some people trouble but that's about it. You have to be perfect with some objectives. These games are remembered for their fantastical elements and whimsy, not brutal difficulty. Most people would probably rate this an 8-9, but I give it a 10 based purely on my own nostalgia of the franchise and how grateful I am that we got an honest remaster without bloating the game with extra content to make it seem relevant. It knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything more.

    When Spyro borns in PS1, The Critics Recognize him as one of the few PS1 Games (i Guess there was 5) Than can demostrate all the HardwareWhen Spyro borns in PS1, The Critics Recognize him as one of the few PS1 Games (i Guess there was 5) Than can demostrate all the Hardware Potential, But The Gamers Doesn't recognize that...

    Now, in 2018, in a World where the people Only Said than is a high Tech Game if have 4k Ultra Realistic Human Stuff, But Spyro demostrates than You can Made incredible videogames Without Human Stuff (Despite a Few NPC Humans)...

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy is the hopes and dream of lot of gamers, than dreams with a Videogame Created By Love and Care, And Even Week and Month, Toys for Bob is showing to us that love and care... Re-Making a beautifull trilogy piece by piece, pixel by pixel, phonema by phonema...

    It is true than in all these Love, it was hard to fit on a only disc, but, How Many Human Games Like Shooters or Whatever have a Weight of 60 or More GB, and their discs are only an installer stuff... Even the Memory Problem, Spyro could fit the First game (the Longest One) and some levels of the Others 2...

    Spyro is an Amazing Character who has an amazing Franchise, than deserves more love and care... And Toys for Bob Steps up the first step...

    Even, in my Gaming Experience, Compared to Another 3D Plattformers from that Generation, Spyro can make a good balance between exploring world and the collectables to collect, And That's the Point on the 3D Platform game-style...

    Even if you doesn't Know About Spyro, You must Buy it, Because is a Piece of Living Story, an beautifull story from the past, and an actual story, Where a Dragon can Show the gamers, than the Quality is beyond the Human Graph...

Consisting of the straightforward but massively colourful and joyous Spyro the Dragon, the lengthier and far more varied Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage (a.k.a. Gateway to Glimmer, which, in my opinion, is a far better name for it) and the undeniable masterpiece of the trilogy, the stellar and groundbreaking conclusion Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon, this is a platformer trilogy that will delight everyone, deftly recapturing the action-packed fantasy magic of the original games while improving almost everything about them that was already so fantastic and fun. The new character and enemy animations are absolutely wonderful and full of fresh charm, while the new cutscenes resemble those from professional CGI animated movies. Every level is now awash with brand new details that make Spyro's world look like a paradise of dreamlike adventure, making it really difficult for you to put down the controller after hours of wonder and light-hearted antics.

    Unfortunately, there is just one minor complaint I have to make: The remixed soundtracks just aren't as good as the originals. The new music tracks just feel lacking compared to the old ones, and this problem is most obvious in the first game. The original soundtrack of the first Spyro game is notable for its 1970s prog rock inspiration, featuring heavy bass and organs, melodic guitar jams, and creative percussion; in the remake, however, the soundtrack sounds oddly quiet, diminished and not particularly exciting. Thankfully though (and I'm so glad the game lets you do this) you can switch back to the original and far superior soundtracks instead. Honestly, I recommend switching if you want to hear the classic, already excellent music while playing this magnificent remaster of a captivating and fun-filled family-friendly platformer trilogy.

I just wanted to point out you can access sunny flight sooner than you should be able too , because in the original games you had to save a dragon so he could tell you about it first. So yeah i found something to nitpick about Lol.

    With that out of the way, the game is damn good: it's just how i remembered back at the ps1 with some great controls too, which was something that i hated in crash instead. Controls are tight and you can control your charge even better too, and the hit detection is great too - maybe too great: I can hit enemies before they approach me. Levels are very detailed and the fact they added extra challenges for unlocking stuff is a nice touch. I can't think of anything that the game does wrong right now, because overall it does a great job and I don't even see a point of making a mini review of each game - if anything the first one is a bit blander since it has basically no plot, the second is a vast improvement over the first in gameplay and plot (what little of it) and the third has multiple characters you can play with which is a nice addition.

    My issues are very few: I encountered a bug or two such as invisible enemies and the game lacks a sort of indicator of the missing levels and such which means you can potentially miss a level (like I did). But overall the game is beyond playable and the issues didn't stop me from enjoying the game!

    Overall I highly recommend the game despite the huge issue of the download size: I suppose it's a minor evil to withstand but comparing to other games that are even smaller and require as much memory as this game, I think we can deal with it.

    Without forgetting that it's 3 games and not just one!
