Activision didn't merge with them until DotD was done, or almost complete.

I give it a 10/10. But the problem I'm having with it is it freezes sometimes but not to the point where I have to reset. They should have worked that out a bit more other than that everything else is fine by me.

That's the only thing I DIDN'T like. The camera was only good at certain points on certain levels. Other times it WAS exactly like having a stiff neck.

#29 Posted: 01:19:54 28/10/2008
I give it an 8.5/10
EDIT: And, since I feel like it, I will post my reasons :3
Fighting: (8/10) It is funner to play this then the other two games. The fighting is fun, because you can go nuts attacking those enemies and try to get 999 hits asap. Although some moves can be really slow which can sometimes be really annoying. For single players, the other dragon that isn't controlled hardly helps with fighting at all.
Flying: (7.5/10) Flying was alright to me. I thought they were really slow sometimes.
Graphics: *PS2* (10/10) Really good! I loved the graphics in this game, especially the forest levels ~♥
Music: (9/10) Yeah we all know that there was a lot reused, big downfall. But some of the music that aren't reused was wonderful (ex. Burned Lands and Twilight Falls). Some re-orchestrated music fits with the title Dawn of the Dragon (like the more darker kind of music for TEN). Can't wait till they put the soundtrack on Itunes ^-^
Story: (8/10) Cute but a bit rushed IMO. There is still kind of questions left unanswered (such as, wtf happened to Scratch? He can't just fly away and that's it D: )
Voice acting: (7/10.) Wayne Brady, come on. You sound much happy in Don't Forget the Lyrics! And Cynder sometimes sounded so fake (like the cutscene before Burned Lands)! Hunter was alright but sometimes he sounded like a robot.
Puzzles/Difficulty: (7/10) There is sometimes when I get confused at a puzzle but they are quickly resolved. The game was rather difficult but not frustratingly hard.

But he is!xD

I do agree. Wayne Brady voice sounds to deep for Sparx. He sounds like someone who's voice is changing. I think they should have stuck with David Spade. He was best, IMO.

A 7.5 because the story line was rushed, too much re-used music, and there wern't really an extra things after the story, so it gets a little boring after you have beaten it.

But it does have better gameplay than the last two and the flight system is pretty good. The graphics were amazing.

Collectables: 8.5 In my opinion, I wanted alot more... But the fact they put them in...

Puzzles: 9/10 lawl. xD I was stuck at the gate in Warfang thinking "HOW DO I LOCK THE FLIPPIN GATE!" So it was hard... For me. smilie

Graphics/Animations: 10/10 It being one of my first good games since I got my PS3. I just fly and glide around to see how smooth it is.

Camera: 8/10 I had no problems with it getting glitchy... But it didn't rotate 360 nor could I get close enough to the characters. xD

Flying: 9/10 The controls were good (unless you were using Sixaxis. >.< ) but I want an accelerator and brakes.

Combat: 9/10 I like the range of different attacks. ...AND GRABBING ENEMIES IS FUN! I love making combos. smilie

Storyline: 10/10 smilie It was so confusing... That is why I like it. smilie They NEED another game to explain what happened to everyone. O.o
But I love what happened to Iggy. ^.^ Just do't like his colour change. O.o

Funness: 8/10

Sound: 7/10 Too much re-used stuff. The new bits were okay... but, NO MOAR REUSING IT MKAY?! The voice acting was okay. Me no like Christina Ricci. Bleh. But the rest was okay. The sound effects scared me. O.o I turned up the volume in the cutscenes, and when the gameplay started again, IT WAS LOUD! Dx

Replay Value: 8/10 Mostly because you can collect and see the good cutscenes again.

Overall: 83.5/100 Needs to be longer... Yeah...

I've got the game! Here's my review *Holds up shield*

Camera: 6/10- I wish you could rotate it more around.

Flying: 7/10 It is a joy to fly but unfortunately the dragons move too slow for me, still fun though even walking's slow.

StoryLine: 9/10 I think it's quite a neat storyline so far but I think they need a little more explaining to do with it.

Music: 10/10 I love the music even if it's reused. I love it.

Combat: 8/10 Again this is fun but the dragons move slow.

Puzzles: 7/10 Nice challenges but I think they need to give more tutorials, considering I was stuck on how to use the chain swing for a bit and the manual didn't say anything about chain swinging.

Graphics: 10/10 Wonderful! Even on ps2!

Gameplay: 9/10 The game on ps2 is a tad laggy but other okaywise.

Overall: This game gets a... 6.9 from me. It's just mainly the game was slow and laggy for me but putting that aside it is quite fun.

HIR Diamond Sparx Gems: 8233
#50 Posted: 22:17:29 09/11/2008
Here's my review (PS3 version), now that I got 100%. >.>

Graphics: Always nice to start out with the pluses, right? The graphics were definitely good in this game. The PS3 version had some really good "eye candy." Personally, I liked Warfang, the Burned Lands and the Floating Islands stages. It's nice to play a game with great graphics.

Camera: Tell me, why did the developers waste time with utilizing the controller for camera control, when it hardly did anything? The only good I found I could get out of it was locating a couple of chests, Blue XP Crystals, Red Crystals and Green Crystals that were in some tight spaces. The camera often turned directions you didn't really like. I personally didn't like how it didn't stay behind you the entire time like in the previous two titles. >_>

Handling: This game got way too confusing. There were way too many types of moves in this game (weak attacks, strong attacks, grabbing, aerial attacks). It got very confusing trying to remember which button did which at first. As for the flying, thumbs down. It didn't control very well. Generally when you have flying, tilting the analog stick up makes you go down whereas tilting the analog stick down lets you go up. Yet I could never really get down/up freely in this game. I even thought the old PSX Spyro games controlled better with flying then they did here. Heck, ANB controlled better. As for trying to combat in the air, forget it. And did I mention the game NEVER LETS YOU LAND WHEN YOU WANT TO. Seriously, I had to fly around in circles so I could land on top of that precariously perched platform. <_<

Difficulty: Any game where I can go through it death-less is probably not that difficult. But lets just sum a few things up: enemies rarely attacked/stunned way more easily than before, there were only two REAL boss battles (one Golem fight and Malefor) and one level with a boss meter (Destroyer). The puzzles were rather easy. I didn't really find any trouble with levers, Conduits or Adamant Orbs. The game was also very generous in dispatching you gems from enemies. It's also insanely easy to build up your combos. And lets not forget, final fury armor is like a one way ticket to unhitability! No you can't touch this, can't touch this! *poses* Did like the Tornado attack. Accidentally using the infinite mana cheat with the tornado is the best way to build up a 250 hit combo and unlock a gallery in the process! But apparently, you died if you missed those action commands at certain points. Who'd thunk it? *brick'd* x.x

Music: Too much repetition, but some of the track choices were very good to repeat (Cynder Action is my favorite Legend track EVAH!!!). And let's top that off with the fact that Activision wants to make it's OWN music store so the selfish folks at the company will not be releasing a soundtrack onto all of our favorite music places like iTunes and Raphsody. WHY DO YOU HATE ME, MANGON?! ;~;

Plot: DotD gets the blue ribbon for actually throwing plot twists in their, something the two titles before it failed to do. I also liked turning the main trio into teenagers (Cynder's new personality is also more reminiscent of her old, evil self and the rivalry she has with Sparx is hilarious). If I really had to complain about anything, I'd complain about the lack of Sparx. Needs more Sparx, ppl! <.>

Replay value: Lacking. I got 100% on the first go ahead (the combo gallery I accidentally unlocked because of fiddling around with cheats, however). If you've got a buddy, feel free to go through the game again with them (as long as it's not the Wii version) because that could actually be fun. But to me, this is a one-and-done game. Not much to see or replay. The level map is a nice touch. Why have to play through the entire game when I want to simply replay my favorite level?

SCORE: 4.8/10
Edit: Score was lowered. As I've been thinking about this game, it just occurred to me how truly horrible an experience it was playing this in comparison to ANB and TEN. The combat system was a failure, the AI were unnecessary, frustrating, and useless, the boss battles weren't engaging or enjoyable and they were ridiculously easy, and the levels just lacked a clear, definite flow. My full attention wasn't even on this game when I played it. I was both listening to my iPod through the gameplay and reading my Vince Flynn novel during the cheesy cutscenes. Heck, I even sold the game back for a full refund! I NEVER, NEVER sell games back. The last game I remember giving away was Sonic R. To those people who call this game difficult, please rent a copy of any game in the Devil May Cry series (PS2 for the first 3, PS3/360 for the fourth) and attempt to play it. Then play DotD and you'll see just how much it phails in comparison to the ideal combat-heavy game. Kudos to you, Capcom. As for Sierra, better luck next time, chaps! e_e

(end rant) <.<;
