Spyro the Dragon – Long Play

As you probably know, we’ve started doing “no microphone, long plays” of video games over on our YouTube channel. Spyro was one of the first ones we did.

Spyro the Dragon: Reignited Trilogy released for the PlayStation 4 and  the Xbox One on November 13th, 2018. It later received a release on the PC and the Nintendo Switch on September 3rd, 2019.

This trilogy is a remastering of the original Spyro trilogy developed by Insomniac Games. The original three games ran from the years 1998 to 2000. These games are platformers featuring the protagonist, Spyro. He’s a young purple dragon with a little bit of an attitude, and a flair for breathing fire, and flying around.

Basically these games are everything you’d come to expect from a platforming title of the early 3D era. From colorful worlds to explore, laughable antagonists and the somewhat snarky personality of Spyro himself, you’ll come to find that that these games are a product of their era in gaming.

Spyro the Dragon: Reignited (Longplay)

While I wouldn’t say that the trilogy brought a new breath of life into the gameplay experience, it did at least manage to make the series accessible to a new generation of gamers around the world. Even as a remaster, the first game is just a little clunky by today’s standards. There’s no disputing that. Even so, the relatively low level of difficulty makes Spyro the Dragon a solid choice for parents with younger kids interested in gaming.

In the first game, you’ll rescue Spyro’s fellow dragons and recover all of their stolen treasure. You’ll also face up against Gnasty Gnorc, the game’s primary protagonist. If you like early 3D platformers, you’ll probably like this reignited version of Spyro the Dragon.
