I have to admit I'm disappointed with A New Beginning. Despite some smart moves on the part of the developers (voice talent, good graphics engine, franchise overhaul) none of them really pan out and bring much to the experience, leaving the game to flounder with its new but repetitive focus on combat. This new beginning kind of made me want to go back to the old beginning, Insomniac's original Spyro the Dragon for PSone. That game doesn't have fancy voice talent or slo-mo air combos; what it does have is solid mechanics, charm, and decent level design, three things mostly lacking in Spyro's latest incarnation. Consider this one only for fans, kids, and fans who are kids.
