    The Reignited Trilogy comes in at exactly the right time and hits all the right notes. Spyro is just as accessible and fun for newcomers as he is for veterans, with updated visuals, audio and gameplay allowing everyone to really have a blast with these classic games. Whether you played Spyro 20 years ago and fell in love or just saw his mischievous face on the cover art and were intrigued, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is for you.

    Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is a wonderful recreation of three of my favorite games from my childhood. I’m so happy that I got to experience the games again in a new way, and it really excites me knowing a new generation will get to experience it as well. Is it the last time we’ll get to see Spyro and his buddy Sparx outside of the Skylanders franchise? I certainly hope not. And if this much love has gone into this remake, it would be a shame if it was.

    Spyro: Reignited Trilogy shows in all its beauty the effort garnered by Toys for Bob. The game acquires a fluidity never seen in the original games and the attention to detail is breathtaking. There are some flaws but even the biggest doesn’t diminish the great result.

    The studio redrew every model and changed the engine, but managed to keep the gameplay faithful to the original. Level architecture, Spyro’s abilities and his enemies – Reignited Trilogy plays just like the originals, only with modern graphics. [Issue#234, p.63]

    No open worlds, no map full of nonsense symbols, no rush to finish it, just an old school, old fashion 5th Gen platform experience. Spyro comes reignited in a game that takes its three and best adventures and gives them a new and polished look without sacrificing the original style.

    Spyro is back with a beautiful remaster, hindered by some technical issues. We hope Toys for Bob patches it to enhance the experience, because other than that, it’s a great collection of classic platforms that still hold up very well.

    It’s a visually rich release that’s bound to appeal to new and veteran players, but it’s also one of the shallowest remasters this console generation has seen thus far.

The game is faithful to the original source, the soundtracks are all the same great and loved songs. The game plays smooth with no issues that I have encountered and the graphics are what you would want to see, Spyro completely up to date. Don't waste time thinking about it, just go buy this game.

It stays true to the originals with only the major graphic overhaul and some minor improvements in other areas (mostly menu related). The controls are fluid and responsive, nothing feels stiff at all. The price for all three games is damn good. Spyro was the first Playstation game I got back in the 90s and I loved it then, and it was strange realizing how dated the polygons looked when I tried revisiting it a few years ago. The dragons look fantastic. Being able to play this is a dream come true.

    These games aren't difficult by any means nor are they terribly long. If you played the Crash Bandicoot remaster then know this follows a similar formula as do most PS1 platformers.

    The flight levels could give some people trouble but that's about it. You have to be perfect with some objectives. These games are remembered for their fantastical elements and whimsy, not brutal difficulty. Most people would probably rate this an 8-9, but I give it a 10 based purely on my own nostalgia of the franchise and how grateful I am that we got an honest remaster without bloating the game with extra content to make it seem relevant. It knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything more.

    Un majestuoso recopilatorio de una de las trilogías más icónicas de la PlayStation original.

    Si algo hace justicia a este Spyro Reignited Trilogy (los tres juegos completados al 100% y con sus respectivos platinos) es que me ha recordado como era una tierna infancia jugando a esta clase de juegos, donde nada importaba salvo la diversión.

    De los mejores remakes que he visto junto a la N'Sane Trilogy de Crash Bandicoot, devuelve ese factor nostalgia y diversión pura que muchos de los títulos actuales parecen haber olvidado por el camino.

    La únicas pegas son el excesivo uso de motion blur que puede resultar molesto las primeras horas de juego y que la cámara de vez en cuando tiene fallos notables y se vuelve un poco loca.

    Sin nada más que añadir, me parece un must have en la biblioteca de todo jugador que se precie.

    Muy recomendado.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Firstly I just wanted to point out you can access sunny flight sooner than you should be able too , because in the original games you had to save a dragon so he could tell you about it first. So yeah i found something to nitpick about Lol.

    Big 67Gb hard drive space required is a negative , no option to install each one by itself.

    Certain boxes are harder to glide to due to the textures for example the head bash crate where you need to glide to a green hand in the original the green hand was straighter.

    The gems now can get hidden by grass making some gems possible to miss. (This is a posite accept where your doing the golden goose mini egg as the seed is hard to see (1 bounces ,1 doesn't they should both bounce to indicate there position).

    Gulp achievement requires perfection no hits at all or a very long time to do and its a nightmare cause the boss is much harder and spams the green gun more which hits more often now.

    When escorting a lost dog home to its master you can mess up the puzzle and glitch the dog into the wall meaning you have to reset level.

    Certain hard sections seem harder as corridors seem narrower.

    The super jump is not like remembered, feels slightly faster.

    The fire rate of the submarine should be slightly faster.

    The Twin dragon boss battle is annoying as your gun fires slower than it used too and the targets are smaller.

    No option to inverse flight so up is up and down is down like originals (i tried the camera options they didn't work).

    The whack a mo mini game is harder with the yeti.

    + Positives

    Fully voice cast +
    Nice Dragons on Spyro 1.
    Nice animations
    The new worlds are visually stunning and I like the changes to the beast makers world the most. ++
    Much better visibility in ocean +++.
    Sometimes not being able to see a gym due to grass +
    Nice list of trophies and variance +
    Added details in certain areas (That both hinder or enhance players experience see the green hand further up)

    So in summary better in some areas but worse than others. Overall its not bad and most people are just complaining about the discs not being all digital.

    Fantastic remaster, with few bugs to fix. I also don't like mechanics of the "mini games" in third part of the series. Skateboarding stillFantastic remaster, with few bugs to fix. I also don't like mechanics of the "mini games" in third part of the series. Skateboarding still sucks, controls on water are terrible.
    But still, this game is my favourite platformer ever. Collecting diamonds, eggs, dragons etc. are so addictive! I love hidden treasures to find, level design is great, especially in the first game. I don't regret any minute spended with this game. I really recommend!
