Activision has finally unleashed or rather re-ignited (no pun intended) another classic PlayStation remake earlier this week. Spyro Reignited Trilogy
pretty much follows the 3-in-1 game format used by the critically acclaimed Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
which by the way, also contains an easter egg for the purple dragon. Spyro Reignited Trilogy contains the first three games in the series (Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, Sypro: Year of the Dragon) and is powered by Unreal Engine 4. In relation to that, let's take a look at what some of the gaming industry's critics have to say about the game.
The Spyro games were legitimately great for the time, though, and thanks to a near-perfect balance between preservation and updating, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is every bit as excellent by today’s standards. - Hardcore Gamer 4.5/5
Spyro Reignited Trilogy has managed to accumulate an impressive Metascore of 83/100 made up of 38 positives and 4 mixed reactions from 42 critics who dissected the game. Most of the accolades point to how Toys for Bob managed to maintain the core mechanics of the classic games while integrating some improvements to satisfy today's gaming standards. While most of the negative reactions point to the game's loading times, something that does not fit in with a game designed for a seamless gameplay experience.
The new, vibrant graphics make Spyro a playable fantasy cartoon. It’s one of the most attractive kid-friendly games you’ll find. Gamesbeat 88/100
As beautiful as this version may be, do take note that the disc version of the game ships incomplete, this means that you need to download the rest of the title before you can play it which according to Digital Foundry is "the most disappointing aspect of the game." After all, it does not make sense buying a disc that contains an incomplete game. But if you can get through with this issue then this is the perfect version of Spyro. Check out Digital Foundry's analysis below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
