Kira recommends 'Spyro: Reignited Trilogy'
Some of us remember when the first Spyro game, aptly titled 'Spyro the Dragon' was released for the PlayStation (as in the PlayStation 1) back in the late 90's. It was quickly followed by two more Playstation platformers, 'Ripto's Rage' and 'Year of the Dragon'. After that, a whole slew of Spyro games, from Gameboy to Gamecube games were released, to the more recent 'The Legend of Spyro' trilogy and the Skylanders game with its collectable figures. The most recent addition to the Spyro collection is the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, which is a remastered collection of the original 3 Spyro games for the PlayStation 4 and XBox One. For those who have been fans since the first game debuted on the original PlayStation, for those who came somewhere in the middle, for those who only know Spyro from Skylanders, or even those who have never played a Spyro game but want to play something new and fun, the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is a treat for gamers of all ages. It's a fun platformer that's fairly easy to pick up, even if you've never played Spyro before. Upon opening the game, you have the choice to play Spyro the Dragon, Spyro: Ripto's Rage, or Spyro: Year of the Dragon. You can play them in any order, and it is not necessary to complete the last game(s) in order to continue. However, if you are the type of person who needs to 100% (or 120%) every game you play and collect every trophy, then be warned- this game has been called 'the Dark Souls of Spyro games', as certain achievements can be trying. The remaster offers updated graphics and voices, smooth animation, and an incredible game experience.
