I'm not a child anymore and I would still buy a Spyro, Crash and Sly game etc. Just to relive the past and great times I had playing those games on the PS1/PS2.

This will unperformed because their is no essence from the old Spyro their. It looks like they had Spyro on steroids on the past few years and he ended up getting beat up to a point where his face just got deformed.

They say this is how he would look when he grows up but none of the other Dragons look like crap.

In the end I'm talking bad about him but I will still be buying this game. Just to see how well it plays and how good it is. It might do real well on the Wii and 3DS. Not the best sells on the PS3/360.
