PSX Extreme writes: "Spyro the Dragon, much like Crash Bandicoot, was the closest thing Sony fans had to a mascot back in the 90s. Thanks to Sony, the Spyro the Dragon franchise has really established itself as a solid platform-adventure series of games. Thanks to Sony's enormous budget, the original three Spyro games were heavily campaigned by the publisher, and it certainly didn't hurt that developer Insomniac put together a solid set of games. When we entered the PlayStation 2 era, Universal ended their contract with Sony and made the franchise multiplatform. And the many iterations that would follow turned out to be a mixed bag: few were good, some average, some terrible...and now it's time for one more."
