Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Preview Impressions (El33tonline)

"Hands up those of you who remember the classic Spyro the Dragon character-based action adventure games on PlayStation and PlayStation 2… right, so I can’t actually see you raising your hand, but I can guess that there are a fair number of people who have fond memories of the series, and I’ve got good news for you: Spyro is back in a brand new, awesome-looking and inventive game called Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure."

Don't ever... compare the classic Spyro: Year of the Dragon on PS1 with the trash that came out afterwards.

Why? Because Spyro: YotD was made by Sony developpers, then sold to mediocre third party developper, just like Crash.

This shit doesnt even look like the original Spyro. Spyro wont ever be the same again without the original developpers.

I like that you're so passionate about the original Spyro the Dragon game, but this new one is looking pretty cool, too.

It may be different, but it could still be really awesome! ;)

I hope this game gets canceled. We don't need this classic franchise any more ruined than it already is.

I doubt any Spyro from here on will reach the quality of the original PS1 version.

Spyro looks like a freaking nightmare.

The toy gimmick is terrible, the characters are Sonic levels of bad, and the gameplay looks clunky.

That is not Spyro. I've seen coffee stains on a fat guy's shirt that looked more like Spyro than that.

Officer help, there's been a rape!

So what would you rather have in a new Spyro game?

It seems as though everybody would like a return to the original look, that's for sure, but what gameplay features would you rather see over and above what was available in the older games?

Also, Skylanders is directly aimed at a younger audience - do you think a 'grown up' version of Spyro would be better, kind of in the way that Link 'grew up' in Zelda? Or would you still prefer the original visual style with improved gameplay features?

Sorry for the market research-sounding questions, but I'm just incredibly intrigued by the visceral negative response Skylanders is getting here. ;)

I had no idea Spyro was a franchise that was so beloved and cherished!

Spyro died along time ago along with crash... revival has been proved futile may you rest in peace.

My childhood was the good days when spyro didnt look like a diseased animal.

WHOAAA are those the graphics in that pic I don't normally cry about graphics but that looks like 90's CG cartoon material.

It will probably be better than all the post-PS1 Spyro games.
