Ifrom nsomniac s Spyro the dragn The triloga of platform adventures in the original PlayStation has remained wonderfully good, as any fan of those games will tell you. Unlike other platforms in the console era, Spyro It seemed to be closer to the collective workforce established by the platforms on the Nintendo 64, and that other platform developers have followed to this day. The result is that games have always felt structurally modern and have aged much better.
All this, of course, leads him to the claim that he could play the original PlayStation games, and be completely fine with what will be a solid, if a bit silly, exit. However, in the vein of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Last year, Activision has taken the Spyro Triloga, and updated wholesale for the current generation of consoles. Spyro: triloga restarted It was handled by Toys for Bob, who were also behind the Skylanders series, which in turn originally started as a Spyro cleave.
His familiarity with the license and his respect for the source material permeates all the frameworks of the experience with Spyro Calling this collection a remaster is not doing justice, this is more like a remake, designed to live up to Spyro as we remember, no Spyro How was it. All the pictures of the game are full of color, fantasy and life, and the game in general seems to be much closer to the amazing art of the original series than the PlayStation could have represented. Strong art is backed by modern reproduction techniques, which means Triloga restarted It will not be out of place next to other games of the current generation, and some liberal reinterpretations involved to make the games look and look even better than the original titles.
"However, despite the thorough visual review of the games, Toys for Bob has had the sense of not touching the real game here. Spyro Play exactly as you remember, from movement to jumping, planning, floating, loading and more. The physics of impulse and inertia are there, and the source material here has received the most delicate touch possible. "
For example, the first Spyro The game has a unique design for each dragon that you must rescue, it is such a small detail, since there are many of them, but it impresses the personality of each of you, the player, and sells the capricious world of the world. I play further. Similarly, enemies and NPCs now have lovely animations that further emphasize their personalities.
However, despite the thorough visual review of the games, Toys for Bob has had the sense of not touching the real game here. Spyro Play exactly as you remember, from movement to jumping, planning, floating, loading and more. The physics of impulse and inertia are there, and the original material here has received the most delicate touch possible. In general, this is a good thing: as mentioned, the titles hold remarkably well, and meddling with physics can cause the fantastic and the purists to be offended, which doesn't happen here. In some cases, however, it can also cause problems, such as with the game camera, which is a desperate exercise of frustration (both the manual and automatic cameras cannot keep up with the action and get in the way). more often than they really fit the action).
The actual levels here are exactly as you remember them, structurally. Graphically, of course, they come alive as never before, full of color and a different sense of identity, as already stated. However, the actual distribution and design have not been altered in the least. This is a surprisingly good decision. Although the levels, which felt gigantic in 1998 (and thereafter) today are only tromps of minutes, they are designed by experts, perfectly tuned to the set of Spyro movements, as well as the unique trick of the level in The one you are currently playing. They also lend themselves to curiosity: there is always a critical path you must take, and you can follow it and run at the end of the stage if you wish. However, players who get out of the way will find their curiosity widely rewarded, and those who return to the previous stages later will find even more layers discovered.
"If you are a newcomer or a true blue Spyro fan who grew up in his original adventures, there is very little to complain about Triloga restarted. It's an incredible package, with three very strong games that hold beautifully, are instantly satisfied to play and look and sound wonderful. "
In terms of really acting as a love tribute to the original games, then, Triloga restarted It can't be hit Visually, the games are glowing now, and they look like they should, instead of doing it. As for the audio, the original soundtrack has been preserved (and you can change it at any time), but an updated score is also included, with light instruments added to provide the sound with more depth and soul. Personally I enjoy the new tracks much more; However, those who are more attached to the original tracks will have the option to change again, so there should be no complaints. And, as mentioned, the games also play very well. While there are some problems that disprove their age, such as the camera, level design and robust mechanics, they remain fantastically well, and have not been messed up at all.
What's more interesting is how they remain as a new package. If, for example, you have never played the original Spyro games, but you want to review them, how recommended is this package compared to other similar games that you can buy for your money? And the answer is that this is a difficult proposal to overcome. You have probably already realized that the games hold well both mechanically and structurally. In fact they are very Satisfactory to play, and newer and less experienced players will find them as rewarding as veteran players will find them full of layers so they don't feel. Graphically and musically, they have been retouched. And even in terms of its simple premise, and to the point of telling stories, they hold up very well, possibly better than several modern games, including family games, which spend a lot of time pontificating, contextualizing and tutoring before you can jump into the world. action No, all you get here is 30 seconds of a quick setup, and then you are playing immediately. There is something to say about how righ now These games are, and for parents looking to buy something for their children, there is probably nothing better than these on the PS4 and Xbox One today. They have a strong design and an immediate feedback loop. In addition, they have some of the characteristics of the ingenuity and charm of Insomniac that will continue to define their later games, such as Ratchet and Clank, in later years.
Whether it's a newcomer or a true fantastic Spyro blue who grew up in his original adventures, there is very little to complain about Triloga restarted. It is an incredible package, with three very strong games that hold beautifully, are instantly satisfied to play and look and sound wonderful. At $ 40 for three very long, very good games, there is literally no reason not to go out and buy these games immediately.

Updated graphics look beautiful and eye catching; an exhaustive review makes the games look closer to what the originals are intended to be, instead of how they look; the new sountrack is great, but you have the option of returning to the original; the design and level controls have not become messy; the original games have aged a lot and feel satisfying and rewarding for veterans and newcomers; fantastic value
Some relics of his time show, like a very frustrating camera that cannot keep up with the action
The style and substance make Spyro: Reignited Trilogy an incredibly attractive package, both for the fantastic and for newcomers.
