The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning review

AT A GLANCE
  • Some of the voice work
  • The colorful stages
  • Upgradeable powers
  • Obtrusive training stages
  • Getting lost in the effects-heavy action
  • David Spade as Sparx

More action-heavy than the previous games in the Spyro series, Beginning has players whomping almost non-stop on giant frost monsters, floating skeletons and semi-intelligent, dynamite-hucking gibbons. Here, the game offers a series of air- and ground-based attacks, including combination strikes, but seems content to provide an endless blur of monsters that can be handled with simple tail-whips.

It's suitably mindless fare, and only really bogs down when enemies clog the screen and the game - which loves its speed lines and crazy particle effects - tends to make it all but impossible for players to see what's going on and who, exactly, is pummeling who.

    I watched this on YouTube to know this was genius even though for all I know it all seemed too easy. I hated the jokes but loved the story and the graphics.
