The Spyro Series

Now I have ALWAYS loved the Spyro series but I don't have all of them so these are the one's I have. Spyro: Year of the Dragon is such a classic all the dragons in the Dragon Realms are celebrating the Year of the Dragon an event every twelve years where new Dragon Eggs are brought to the realm During the celebration, however, a cloaked anthropomorphic rabbit girl, Bianca, invades the Realms with an army of Rhynocs and steals all of the Dragon eggs. Spyro, along with Sparx and Hunter, are sent down a hole to find the thieves and recover the Dragon eggs. Here is the first part of the game.

I've always loved this game with the thieves with stolen Dragon Eggs saying "nah nah nahnah nah!" and when your skateboarding to beat Hunter's course record and with the different speedways and the name's of the 4 Homeworlds Sunrise Spring, Midday Gardens, Evening Lake and Midnight Mountain. Also the 4 friends Sheila the Kangaroo, Sgt. James Byrd the Penguin, Bentley the Yeti and Agent 9 the Monkey beating up Moneybags for keeping them locked in a cage. Here is Moneybags getting beaten up.

Great memories.

Now alot of Spyro fans say Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly is the worst Spyro game I will admit it's not the best BUT I still enjoy it. It takes place shortly after Spyro: Year of the Dragon the generation of young dragons, whom Spyro recently saved from the Sorceress' clutches, are about to celebrate a rite of passage: the assignment of their newly-arrived dragonfly guardians. However, during the party, Ripto (who appears to have survived the events of Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage with no explanation) teleports in via a portal and disrupts the celebration, intent on capturing the new dragonflies in order to weaken the young dragons. However, his spell misfires, and the dragonflies are scattered throughout the Dragon Realms. Spyro is tasked with recovering the dragonflies. Here is the first part of the game.

The game isn't so bad.

Now Spyro: A Hero's Tail is a great game where since Spyro's last adventure, all has been tranquil in the Dragon Realms. Of course, it had a long period of peace in the Dragon Realms. Unfortunately, it won't be anymore, because the game begins when Gnasty Gnorc, Spyro's first enemy, has been brought back to life. Returning to the Dragon Realms with his Gnorc minions, he planted huge dark stones throughout the Dragon Realms and sent his minions with dark stones into a portal to other Realms. But Gnasty wasn't alone, he was with a huge red dragon carrying a staff with a similar dark stone at the end. The red dragon used his staff's dark power to make a barrier by the entry to Gnasty's lair so other dragons wouldn't interfere before flying off. The Professor saw what had happened on his computer screen, and quickly summoned Spyro and Sparx to his lab and showed them what had occurred. Spyro was told by the Professor that the dark stones are Dark Gems, which fuel Red's (the red dragon) evil power. Spyro quickly charged out of the lab's door and went off to destroy the Dark Gems. Here is the trailer for the game.

Here are 2 funny bits in the game.

 Very funny.

Now the Legend Trilogy is my most favorite of the Spyro games it shows a much darker setting than its predecessors. The game began inside the Dragon Temple, where a Fire Guardian Dragon named Ignitus was watching over a brood of eggs, it was the "Year of the Dragon", a time every twelve years when new Dragon eggs were brought to the realm. A dragons' prophecy told that every ten generations, a rare Purple Dragon will be born, who will direct the fate of that era, Ignitus was looking after such an egg. The dragons were, however, at war with an enemy called the "Dark Master" who knew of the prophecy as well, and laid siege to the Temple, intended on destroying the brood of eggs to prevent the birth of the purple dragon. Ignitus escaped with the Purple Dragon's egg, left it to drift down the Silver River into a swamp, hoping for the best. The egg was discovered by a family of dragonflies, and upon hatching, they named him Spyro and was adopted into the family and raised as one of their own, alongside Sparx, a young Dragonfly who was born on the same day. Here is the trailer for the game.

  Love it.

Now I know I've already done a review of this game but this one's going to be more detailed. The story begins with Spyro following Cynder through the swamps and jungle surrounding the Dragon Temple after hearing from Sparx that she was sneaking out into the temple's garden. Spyro caught up with her and asked her not to leave, revealing that he does have feelings for her. Cynder then left saying she doesn't want to cause pain and suffering to anyone, especially Spyro, and that her destiny is somewhere out in the world for her to find. When Spyro was about to chase after Cynder, he suddenly collapsed. A voice emitted in his dream and Spyro regained his fire element and was shown a vision of a great tree. Shortly after Spyro woke up, an Ape army attacked the Temple. After Spyro repelled the attack, Ignitus, tried to locate Cynder, but found a vision of Spyro by the base of a great tree. Spyro claimed that he kept seeing haunting visions of a mountain draped in shadow and darkness, beneath the two moons. Terrador, realized that was the Mountain of Malefor. Spyro also claimed that a voice, called the Chronicler, came to his dream and showed him that tree. The Guardians were shocked and Ignitus told Spyro that the Chronicler is an ancient dragon of immeasurable wisdom and was often interwoven with tales of doom. The Guardians became increasingly worried about the Celestial Moons coming into an eclipse. Ignitus sent Volteer and Cyril to the mainlands to learn what news they can, and sent Terrador to the Shattered Vale to warn everyone living there about the darkness spreading in the mountain, while Ignitus stays behind and went to search for Cynder. Here is the trailer for the game.

They are GREAT.

Now this is probably my most favorite of the trilogy cos' now you can fly at anytime and you can play as both Spyro and Cynder and now play multiplayer. The game starts with a mysterious set of enemies who enter the ruins of the Mountain of Malefor, where Spyro and Cynder remain frozen in crystal after their fight with Gaul. These mysterious enemies break open the crystal and put glowing green snakes, whose effects are to keep Spyro and Cynder together at all times, on the two dragons' necks. Afterwards, they take them away, leaving Sparx, who awakens moments later in the palm of Hunter of Avalar, who observed the whole scenario unfold from the shadows. Meanwhile, Spyro and Cynder awaken in a dark area, wondering what has happened to them. Spyro notices that Sparx is not there, but has no time to dwell on this as he and Cynder are sent straight into battle. Attached to a peg on the stone platform, they're unable to escape when a massive Golem attacks them. While they are able to lift the peg, they remain stuck together as they fight off the creature. When they are unable to defeat it completely, Hunter rescues them by distracting it with an arrow to its eye. Spyro, Sparx, and Cynder are reunited, then proceed after Hunter. He introduces himself, and says that Ignitus sent him when Spyro did not return to the temple three years ago. They manage to escape the Catacombs, tangling with the Golem and removing it's arm in the process. After getting though an area called "Twilight Falls", Hunter shows them that the Dark Master had been resurrected, and had escaped from the Well of Souls shortly after Spyro's disappearance, and has covered the land in Darkness. Here is the trailer for the game.

What a great series I hope it doesn't end and I hope they make another Legend.
