Guide to Spyro A New Beginning on the PlayStation 2

Spyro the dragon is probably one of the more recognized characters from the original PlayStation, having had 3 hit games on that console. With the move to the PS2, however, things took a bit of a downturn mainly due to a different development team taking the reins and putting out what could be considered mediocre games that seemed to focus less and less on the main character.

Now Vivendi Universal has given Spyro to a new team, Krome Studios, and have decided to reboot the series with a retelling of his origin and giving a bit more back story on the the little purple dragon. Every 10 generations a special dragon is born that can master the four elements of the earth- earth, fire, ice and electricity- and Spyro, it turns out, is that dragon. The story begins with Ignitus, a rather large red dragon, guarding the egg that will eventually hatch our hero when the kingdom comes under attack. After escaping he sends the egg into hiding down a river. The egg eventually comes to rest in a swamp where he is found by a family of dragonflies and he is taken in as one of their own. It's only while playing a game of chase with best friend Sparx he discovers his fire-breathing ability and realizes he is more than he seems.With Sparx in tow, he heads off to find his true heritage.

The gameplay is a mix of 3D platforming and combat. The melee atacks have become a bit more sophisticated from previous outings which allows for combos such asknocking enemies into the air and then attacking them on the way down using aerial combos and various elemental attacks which can be earned as the game progresses. These elemental powers can be accessed using the D-Pad and are upgradeable. Also making a return in the game is the collecting of gems but this time they serve a purpose- each color refills a particular guage for health, breath power and a special attack meter that, when filled, allows the unleashing of Spyro's most powerful attacks.

No expense was spared in the voice department- well known actors fill in key roles such as Elijah Wood (Frodo from the Lord of the Rings trilogy) as Spyro, comedian David Spade as Sparx and Gary Oldman as Ignitus, Spyro's mentor.

The graphics aren't that far off from what was seen in previous installments but still look great especially taking into account the number of things happening at once on screen. It's nothing new for Spyro to be surrounded by enemies while he lets them have it with the varied attacks. Some of the effects for the flame and lightning attacks are especially cool to see and there hasn't been any sign of a frame drop. This is probably the best Spyro has ever looked.

With the simple kid-friendly control scheme and the seeming intent to get the series back on its feet this is a game that may be worth looking out for.
