You remember Spyro? Of course you do. Spyro was an amazing purple dragon who stole the hearts of a generation on the Playstation. Here we are 20 years after the release of the original Spyro the Dragon and a whole new generation of gamers can experience these games in all their HD glory.
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is out now Playstation 4 and Xbox One. This compilation brings the first three games: Spyro the Dragon, Spryro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Originally developed by Insomniac Games, this collection was carefully and masterfully produced by Toys for Bob and published by Activision.
It is clear that the team at Toys for Bob really care about Spyro and the work that Insomniac put into their original titles. Each game looks so shiny and so new. Colors are vibrant, animations are smooth and the remastered soundtrack is flawless.
The controls remain the same with Spyro gliding and running across the lands. Which is both awesome and not awesome because it turns out I was TERRIBLE at Spyro games. I would glide and fly right into the sea, or crash into a wall. Newcomers and fans of Spryo alike will instantly feel at home with the Reignited Trilogy.
More than anything the Spryo Reignited Trilogy is just simple fun. Getting back into these games was a nostalgic blast that anyone can enjoy. If you’re looking for a gift for your gaming relative this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with these three classics in glorious HD.
