This is a game for die-hard fans of Spyro and children only. It is an average game in the Spyro series, simply another quest and adventure with few changes. It only takes about twelve hours to beat, if you don’t have to restart it multiple times due to catastrophic bug problems. If you want an RPG, get something along the lines of Final Fantasy or Suikoden, but if you’re younger or a fan of this cute little dragon, Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly will not disappoint you.

The game will doubtless appeal to younger players. But the formula nature of the plot really is a letdown. Sure, the game looks good and sounds great, but Enter the Dragonfly lacks depth of play. It is a safe arcade-adventure outing.

Alles, was die Jump&Run-Fans an der Spyro-Serie liebten, hält auch auf der PS2 Einzug: großräumige Abschnitte, eine leicht zu erlernende und unkomplizierte Steuerung sowie Knuddel-Charaktere. Doch abgesehen von den neuen Mini-Spielchen und den leicht erweiterten Fähigkeiten des Drachens hat sich nicht viel geändert. Zudem ist das grafische Umfeld nicht gerade sehr berauschend und kann nur durch die trotz Textur-Armut viel zu häufig auftretenden Ruckler auffallen. Da es auf der PS2 mittlerweile ein breit gefächertes Repertoire im Genre gibt, findet der Jump&Run-Fan mehr als genügend Alternativen, die zu einem Großteil auch noch besser sind. Für jüngere Spieler auf Grund des leichten Einstiegs jedoch auf jeden Fall einen Blick wert.

Spryo loupe quelque peu la marche 128 bits. Bluffante sur PSX, sa réalisation n'est plus aussi reluisante. A part ça, le jeu suit la routine amorcée par les épisodes précédents. C'est un Spyro pantouflard et sans grandes idées qui arrive sur Playstation 2.

Spyro is a fun, yet unsophisticated game that never wanders far from the proven path of his successors. It doesn’t seem to take advantage of the power the PS2 has to offer, but instead makes marginal improvements that will thrill fans of the original games while leaving players of the more sophisticated platform games yawning.

Som jag nämnde tidigare passar Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly bara för de spelare som inte förväntat sig särskilt många överraskande och nyskapande inslag. Universal Studios har inte utvecklat konceptet det minsta, utan snarare tagit ett steg tillbaka och gjort om det Insomniac gjorde för över fyra år sedan. Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly blir knappast årets julklapp, men behöver inte heller göra alla besvikna. Draken är ju tillbaka, helt enkelt.

All in all, Spyro the Dragon is only a slightly better than average platformer. Slightly. Up against games such as Sly Cooper and Ratchet and Clank, it doesn't hold a candle. Even up against games such as Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, Spyro falters. Shoulder to shoulder with previous versions of Spyro, it's essentially the exact same playing experience, with minimal additions. Which is the crux of the matter. If you want to play something that's easy and comfortable, that doesn't challenge you in any way, then you'll like this. If you want something entirely new, or even remotely resembling a next-generation experience, then forget it. Spyro is still a cute, adorable and very likeable character and this game is mindless, easy fun, but it’s simply more of the same old stuff.

There are worse platform games out there, but it's such a shame that Sony's greatly revered platform series has been taken down more than a few notches by this latest effort. It should still appeal to young kids and gamers that like their games served up "extra easy," but you'll do yourself a big favor by making Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly a weekend rental instead of a permanent addition to your game collection.

Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly is nothing but a sheep in wolves clothing. The gameplay, music, sound effects, and graphics are all sorely lacking and have mediocre written all over them. Do yourself a favor and let this one sit on the shelf... right where this rushed cash-in deserves to be.

Jugabilidad ortopédica, enemigos fáciles, poca duración, argumento ridículo, personajes que no despiertan simpatía, melodías, doblaje sin carisma ni gracia y bastante reciclaje de las anteriores entregas. Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly tiene el dudoso honor de ser la peor entrega de las aventuras del dragón Spyro. Es cierto que desde que Imsomniac perdió los derechos muchos fans tradicionales rechazaron las siguientes entregas, pero realmente son buenos juegos sólo que son muy diferentes. En cambio éste no, directamente es malo, y si lo comparamos con las anteriores entregas (y posteriores) hasta es posible que nos indignemos. Y es que Equinoxe Check Six era una empresa sin apenas experiencia que sólo desarrolló este título, ya que su Aliens: Colonial Marines, de EA y para Playstation 2, se canceló. Lo más probable es que al ser una empresa japonesa tuviese otra mentalidad por lo que no fue capaz de conseguir una aventura al estilo occidental. En cualquier caso ya no existe como estudio.

Det är ett ofokuserat spel fullt av dålig skärmuppdatering, polygonfattiga modeller och långa laddningstider som Universal har släppt ifrån sig. Hela äventyret verkar gå i ultrarapid, och klumpiga animationer gör det svårt att få någon vidare pli på Spyro. Den lilla draken som tidigare var en pigg utmanare till Mario har blivit gammal och förtjänar att få gå i ide. Och om inte Insomniac behagar ta hand om honom snart igen tycker jag att vi kan låta honom sova för evigt.

Evito accuratamente un paragone con la diretta concorrenza su PS2 in quanto troppo impietoso per un personaggio che da vincente si è tramutato non solo in perdente, ma anche in ebete, sfigato, idiota, imbranato, incapace… uno dei peggiori platform 3D per Playstation 2 e Gamecube nonché uno dei più deludenti seguiti della storia.

Even the biggest fans of Spyro are going to have a hard time enjoying this game. The leap to the latest generation of consoles leaves them with a slower game, a shorter game (10 hours), and an all-around less enjoyable game, not to mention a buggy one.
