This purple dinosaur has wings and sprays fire all over those who dare defy him. Umm, and then he joins up with the arch nemesis that he has just destroyed, but we will just pretend like they were always friends. I've literally been waiting years to play this game, but I have never had the required platform in which to make the game purr -- PlayStations are not on my top ten awesome devices list. I digress. The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is the last in the the Legend of Spyro series. Spyro decides to turn the other cheek and is accompanied by his former arch enemy, Cynder, in taking on the Dark Master Malefor.
Graphics are very awesome. Do you know how long I have been waiting to say that? The lighting, shading, and colors were just amazing. I played the Wii version, and I have read that the graphics are jawdropping on the PlayStation. Granted, the Wii cannot pull as much graphic wow out of its insides, but I was still very happy with the pretties that were floating across my screen. Mostly I was awestruck by the lighting! On most of my computer games, I have to turn the shadows and light effects completely down to make my game playable, so I do not get the full effect of the face melting; but The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon fully melted my face with the lighting."
