Since the remake is here of one of the best trilogies on the original PS is out now I figured a few of us will be playing it so here's somewhere we can discuss it

Overall I am very pleased with it. I 100% the first hub world and two of the first areas so I got a good feel for it. Playing it brought a smile to my face as so many good memories playing the first Spyro came back to me. The graphics look gorgeous. The sound was good too. The only thing when I tried to play the original music it sounded muffed compared to the remixes.

So what is everyone else's thoughts on this remaster?

100% Spyro 1, got the Platinum.

Few things caught my eye. Visually, great. Kinda glad there isn't a Switch version. Kinda sad there isn't a PC version.

Audio-wise, much better than Crash. More faithful and representative.

Controls, good. Charging felt a little stiff on the left and right movement but it's easy to adjust to.

Bosses were much more aggressive in this version of Spyro 1, a nice touch. Also like the loading screen control you have.

Some jumps felt a little TOO precise compared to the originals and I don't know why. Everything else about the control is top notch. Just those few jumps.

Adding skill points to Spyro 1 is neat.

Some hitboxes are a bit weird. The statues in Colossus, and one or two things in Spyro 1, don't react to being flamed like you would expect unless you use a certain angle. Weird.

Overall, very happy. Shame the guys in Hurricos no longer sound like SpongeBob.

Oh, but performance. Man. Some notable pop-in on grass even from the Artisan hub, and the frame rate is....trying to be 60? Also that motion blur is mighty aggressive.

@Knuckles-Fajita Yeah the skill points confused me at first. I got one in the hub world and I saw it said got 1 skill point. First thing that went through my mind was what did they add skill trees or something. I was like can I improve his fire, jumping ability etc.

Of course it didn't help that I was playing Borderlands 2 before I played Spyro today.

@Knuckles-Fajita Overall from your comment it sounds like you had more fun with this than the Crash game - is that right?

(Also thanks to you, but basically anyone, who post day one impressions of games like thi on the forum. Always love reading them a lot and helps me to decide on where to go next!)

Gosh darn it, having read the posts above, I'm now sorely tempted to give up on Agent 47 in the immediate and just start with Spyro already!

I just got it from Game, what's the crack in the end? 1 game on the disc and the other 2 download?

@Kidfried Having a lot more fun with this.

It justt feels better than Crash, probably because Spyro's ckbtrol is tweaked per game instead of Crash where they tried a one size fits all.

Doesn't help that Spyro was my first game so any cbanges no matter how minute are immediately apparent.

One change I appreciate is it is now very clear jf you supercharge and maintain it you gain speed.

@Tasuki That skill point jump was the only thing to concern me. It felt a lot tighter than it should but I also discovered the devs compensated for that, unlike in Crash where a tight jump in the remake that wasnt originally had to be made perfectly, Spyro can actually soft of lift himself up if you juuuust miss.

@kyleforrester87 One is all on disc, 2 and 3 partially.

@RogerRoger Buy it. Im being positive about a game.

I'll get this soon-ish. There's plenty of games I haven't gotten to yet, in addition to the backog.

I don't remember anything about the original game, but I am looking forward to a revamped Ripto's Rage and Year of the Dragon.

@Knuckles-Fajita Oh, I picked up my pre-order copy yesterday, along with some other Spyro stuff. It's just that my OCD makes me a "one game at a time" person; my consideration to abandon Hitman 2 goes to show how tempting you've made Spyro sound.

My original thought was to leave the trilogy in my backlog until late January / early February but now I'm seriously thinking about changing the plan.

@RogerRoger It's up to you. This game is all I have to be positive about lately.

A little oddity: In the trophy lists for Spyro 2, it lists a trophy for "Don't Get Hit by Bob". Seems they renamed Bombo to Bob, at least in the PS4 EU release.

@Knuckles-Fajita Well, I'm genuinely glad you've got it, then.

Did you manage to get any pre-order bonuses? I know you sometimes struggle to find a good place to buy new games from in your area. I've got the art cards, dynamic themes and keychain which came from GAME and if I'm honest, I'm never gonna display and / or use them. You'll get much more out of them than I ever will; let me know if you're interested and I'd be happy to post them to you.

@Knuckles-Fajita They renamed the character, because he doesn't throw bombs anymore is what I read. They replaced a machine gun with something like a paintball gun too in the first game.

Probably rating stuff.

In the case of Bombo the fact that a "Middle Eastern" person who's throwing bombs, might be frowned upon by parents (9/11 etc cetera), might have played into this too.

Spent an hour combing a level looking for a chest key, turns out the chest was just a normal chargeable one 😂

I'm tired.
