Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly
Preview By: Dan Peters
Developer:  Universal Interactive
Publisher:  Universal
Genre:  Platform
Est. Release:  November 2002
Posted:  6-18-02

To be honest, I've never been a huge fan of the Spyro games (there were three of them on the PSOne, and you can buy them as a trilogy for around $40 now).  I can't deny they were good, but they just weren't my cup of tea.  So, naturally, I'm not as enthusiastic about this game than other games I have written previews for - but, like I said earlier, I can't deny the Spyro games were good, and I do know there's a fairly large fan base for the cute little dragon that you can't help but love.

The premise for this game is about as simple as the other three were.  Spyro's dragonfly friends have been kidnapped, and the motive of the abduction is that they were supposed to guide the dragonfly youngsters, as they are the source of Spyro's dragon magic.  So, along with long-time friend Sparx (and other old friends like Bianca, the professor, Hunter, and ZOE), you set out on a quest to find your dragonfly friends, and stop the evil bad guys from causing anymore trouble.

The PS2 version of Spyro will be a little different than its PSOne cousins, but it'll probably overall be what you expect.  Spyro will have the fire breath like he did in the earlier games, but there will also be three new breaths:  ice, electricity, and bubble.  The new breaths are important to the game, as they will help you solve puzzles, kill enemies, and rescue dragonflies.  Another new weapon he'll have is super head smash, which will help you with the bigger baddies you'll encounter.  There will also be mini-games galore, vehicles, and 25 levels (a little less levels than in the previous games, but the levels will be much larger, so exploring will probably be a big part in the game too).

If you're a big fan of Spyro or this type of game, you'll have a lot to look forward to.  Our favorite cute little dragon will see the PS2 for the first time this November, just in time for the holidays.  Parents:  this game will be as kid-friendly as they get, so I'm just giving Santa a little heads-up there.   ;)
