Guardian writes: "Spyro the dragon was once second only to Lara Croft when it came to PlayStation gaming icons. But a host of forgettable releases in the past few years have left Spyro with its reputation in tatters.
Dawn of the Dragon goes some way to redeeming things. This is a traditional third-person (third-dragon?) adventure, with platforms, combat and basic puzzles. It looks pretty too, with plenty of cuddlier takes on traditional fantasy settings. Co-op play is key to the game, with two players able to play through the game together. In fact, the game is easier when played like this, with solo play hampered by the computer-controlled buddy."
