I only read to the bottom of the first page, and read a horrible review. The main fails on the review were on the combat, in which the user who reviewed it apparently didn't pay attention to the first few minutes of the game. Here is a list of corrections to the fails of that review:

Fail #1: Hold (x) to fly down, let go to drop. Tap (x) to flap your wings.
Fail #2: Up to go down, Down to go up. Standard flying controls for any game.
Fail #3: Fighting combos (Such as ([]) ([]) ([]) ([]) (^) ) are a useful, but unnecessary to use asset in combat. They are there, but you don't need to use them.
Fail #4: The camera rotation system that was used is standard among most games, and is very necessary to the game. You don't NEED to rotate the camera to your liking, but when you can, it is extremely useful. If you think you NEED to rotate the camera, go home.
Fail #5: I need to check back at the review, I know there was at least one more FAIL.

My review of this game:

-- I missed both of the other games in the series, so I might update if I get them!
Overall emotion: THIS GAME IS FRICKIN' AWESOME. Best spyro game to date. I don't believe how low people rate this game.... They just have no lives.

Alright... let me ask you something. How many 3D action/adventure games have you played in your life time? Probably many, given we've been in the realm of 3D for over a decade now.

Now, tell me how many of these games at least let you have SOME control over the camera? Many. What do they all have in common? THEY GOT GOOD REVIEWS FROM CRITICS AND PEOPLE BOUGHT THE GAME. Super Mario 64 was loved because you had complete control over the camera and rarely found yourself in a tight space and the camera angle unwitting to help you out. In DotD, there were several of these awkward times when the camera refused to assist you by remaining in a certain direction. Crash Mind Over Mutant had the exact same problem. A FIXED CAMERA IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKES YOU CAN MAKE IN THE GAME.

How about you go play a 3D game like Devil May Cry or God of War... where you are swarmed by enemies in much greater numbers than DotD. Notice the camera is more flexible than in DotD. Also notice how much more helpful said controllable camera is in helping you mow down your enemies (which have much more difficult AI when compared to those in DotD).

Now, on to those "fighting combos." Of course you needed them! EL did a TERRIBLE job with the mana system. Even your most basic breath attacks sapped your mana twice as fast as they did in ANB and TEN. Seeing as you were constantly running out of mana, the only plausible way to make it through the action segments just begged the use of melee combos. Now, in the previous two installments, your melees were powerful and simple to perform. EL tried to add flare to DotD with unnecessary and underpowered combos like the "weak melees" and "grabbing combos." The grabbing combos were especially terrible, because upon the conclusion of the attack you found yourself exposed to counterattack from your foes unless you skillfully glided/flew away. The strong melees also sucked because they were too slow, leaving you completely open to attack while you were trying to bash a baddie.

And, as I've stated. The flight mechanic DIDN'T WORK. Try playing any other 3D game with flying. Up on the control pad/stick is supposed to make you go downward, and down on the control pad/stick is supposed to make you go upward. Such has been the case with the past Spyro games. So why didn't it work? Well, it may have been a technical glitch in my PS3 (seeing as it is really old), but I had to randomly mash the control stick in different directions until I was actually flying where I wanted to. And releasing the X button generally causes you to start gliding. There is no immediate falling right on the spot you stopped over. Also, why doesn't a bottomless pit kill you in this game? I'm pretty sure a bottomless pit equaled death to the purple dragon in EVERY SINGLE OTHER SPYRO GAME.

You're entitled to your opinion, good sir. But do not go bashing my review and saying that it "fails" in certain respects. Additionally, I must convey a major gripe with your review:

My review of this game:
Story: 10/10
Combat: 10/10
Graphics: 10/10
Difficulty: 10/10
-----
Overall rating: 10/10


Where is the evidence? The cold, hard proof that each section of the game is, in your opinion, flawless. A review is not meant to be strictly numbers... there must be conjecture to support the numerical statement! I'm afraid I simply cannot take your review at face value without your opinions backing it up, my good man.

I don't think so. God of War on the PSP had a fixed cam, and it works really well. In DotD it works ok too.

You forget... DotD rips off God of War in more ways than one. >.>

Right, so that leaves one good game with a fixed camera. I don't feel DotD works very well with it. Especially when you're doing the fighting part. =_="

Looking at other game sites i can say that the average reviews by people who played it showed around a 7.5-8.2/10. Which is a bit higher that what the sites themselves said which was a 1-7/10 depending on where you looked.

GameRankings is your friend.

According to that site, DotD scored as follows:

Wii: 11 reviews, 65.9%
Xbox 360: 37 reviews, 64.14%
DS: 10 reviews, 60.6%
PS2: 2 reviews, 59%
PS3: 20 reviews, 58.6%

The only Spyro games that got reviews and scored lower than DotD were the DS TEN, Shadow Legacy, and EtD.

Fun fact: the original Spyro trilogy by Insomniac is still at the top (at 85% and above) and the highest ranking LoS game is the Xbox ANB at 71.27%.

It does not really matter what the "professionals say" it matters about what the people say, which is varied. Those guys did not even average their scores right and rounded down so when the game was suppose to be rated a 7 they ranked it a 6. Others of those game sites were still in a nostalgic mode and did not really give the series a chance. Do not get me wrong some of those sites were really honest and ranked them fair, just some were either a little too critical or not critical enough.

Ah, so we can blame DotD's critic failure on the fact that it just coincidentally happened to be released right around the time where nostalgia fever was in full swing with Capcom leading the charge as usual (HIR loves himself some Mega Man and Bionic Commando). Yeah, that makes complete sense. <.<;

If you look at the sales, you'll see that they seem to support what the "professional" critics said as well. DotD did not sell as well as previous games. Word of mouth must have gotten out pretty fast.

It's understandable that some people like this game and there's nothing wrong with that. But it's equally understandable that a lot of people didn't like the game and that it failed to live up to its hype. The Spyro franchise is still best known for the original Insomniac trilogy. People outside this fandom (and even a number of people within it) don't think highly of the LoS series, if they think of it at all. They haven't thought highly of the Spyro franchise since EtD nearly killed it.

It's also worth noting that GameRankings does bring in reviews by small-time critics. The site's purpose is simply to gather as many reviews as they can from as many sources as possible.

I understand that EtD was the black eye of the originals. But we all need to understand that the first Spyro game Sierra (not Universal, Sierra as we know it now) published was AHT. And I feel the Eurocom did a very good job trying to bring AHT back up to the standard of the originals. And critics would agree... the game got fairly good reviews. Then Sierra just suddenly decides to end the originals there and start the LoS.

The sad thing is that each subsequent Spyro game received lower scores/sold fewer copies than its predecessor. AHT did well, ANB didn't do as well, TEN did even worse, and DotD just made too many blunders and was overly-hyped as THE GAME that would put Spyro back on to the map.

k since it would waste space quoting i will just say this good point HIR and Razz for what you said.

Too bad they switched everything and did not take their time on this game and maybe it would have had turned out better.

I have a long reveiw for Wii.

First off, the graphics look really nice, everything ''brings'' me into the game.
Also, what else I noticed is that 360 had some better and extra stuff added
Now that made me JELOUS I never get like that! Then I saw a cutsceen,
WOW to much shadows and light effects! Wow Spyro and Cynder look like
SNAKES!
Back to our review, anyways, loved the gameplay it made me feel like I was really there. Even if some of the attacks were a little confusing.
When I was fighting Malefor, it felt... real!
As for the camera, I don't think there was anything wrong with the camera,just a little confusing, But when you get the hang of it you are fine.
You can't forget the levles, Sierra did amazing and everything looks very real to me, Avalar was the best though, a true quality in ALL graphics.
Combat, my favorite. I loved the combat and action they have placed in the game. Breath, was powerful! All of the elements have a true reallty
into looking almost real.
One thing I forgot say. The cutscenes, every thing looks real, the only thing that denies the realaty, is the eyes. The anima eyes.
And the free flight, that was purely amazing one problem, flying down
that was hard!

I rate this game 10/10
Well that is my review for Wii hope you find it true.

Yea as long as you don't shake your controller during the action scenes. I did that a few times and ended up dieing. Shook the controller instead of pressing B on accident.

You are all lucky on this forum.
Some may know I will soon do game reviewing in a special way.
I point out all (or most) bad points of the best games I've played.

DOTD will be reviewed right after Starcraft.

Be careful, this review is said in quite a violent way. This is why some words will be censured (but not in the video).

Here's a part of the review:

The Legend of Spyro: The Dawn of the Dragon has come out October 21st 2008.
There's a big debate for the moment if this game is the best or not.
The player's having played the old Spyro's will say NO!!!
Unlike most of the new ones (like me).

But thats not the point.

First of all, the combats ****.
All people having played The other LOS will say that.
They ****. Really, Every time there's a combat, you must face a least 20 enemies at the same time. You must hit the buttons without kowing what's happening and hope you win...

Also, the camera doesn't always follow Spyro (or Cynder) from behind.
That's so ****ing confusing!!!


That's all for the review (for the moment).
I hope you enjoyed it and didn't take it too seriously.

I will let you know when my reviews are ready.

Flying: 7/10 It could have been expanded, yes, but I still enjoyed it. I also despised the 'hold a" to fly down thing. It took much too long to actually land

Story: 4/10 smilie I saw it all coming

Combat: 6/10 The camera is what messed this up. It would randomly zoom in and out

Environment: 8/10 I'm just glad it wasn't as linear as the last two

Difficulty: 4/10 It was of average difficulty

Music: 8/10 It had an epic feel to it, sadly, it didn't seem like the game lived up to it. D:

Fun: 7/10 It did kill time, and it was pretty fun.

Graphics: 8/10 I thought they were good

Length: 4/10 I hate when games are too short

Overall, I give it a 64/100

Had to change the difficulty score due to that easy Malefor fight

Yeah, it does lack in some ways, but here's my rating:
Flying: 8/10. Not too bad, least you can flap when you want to!
Running: 5/10. yeah, ok, but they need to work on it a bit more.
Have you considered rating the IQ of the dragons in Single Player?
4/10. Mainly because the other dragon would only attack enemies if you would, and wouldn't help you smash gems, crystals, e.t.c.
Meleesmilieattacking) 6/10. Hmm, average, Cynder's combos are awesome, but Spyro needs work on.

Average Score for me: 8/10.
A lovely game, but, needs more work on future games....
Don't get me wrong, i LOVE all the Spyro games!
WEll, exept for Enter the Dragonfly...... *crys* that sucked.

Its a bloody great game! i play it over and over completing all 5 game save slots haha i've done 4 and have just started the last one, the flying is great and gives you so much more freedom, and the idea of the flying enemies is good, and that you can fly high but you have limited area to fly, and that a lot of the levels are based around flying which is pretty good!

10/10 overall smilie

8.5/10 (XBOX 360)

Flying- 7/10: The game's flying is annoying. I like how it occasionally tests your skills in flying, But seriously, Why do that?

Graphics- 10/10: Beautiful. I can't believe how lifelike the Valley of Avalar looked. It all has awesome effects for the attacks, too.

Storyline- 6/10: Honestly, great storyline, but the amount of plotholes is too annyoing.

Achievements- 9.9/10: The one achievement, Buddy system, is really challenging to get, like most others, but can get really annoying. They're fun, though.

Fun- 10/10: Awesome!!! :3

Fury- 4/10: Strong but boring. It's just a breath attack now.

Camera- 7/10: Decent camera that can be annoying sometimes.

Music- 10/10: Just like the graphics, music isalso repeated to bring back fond memories of ANB and TEN.

That's it for XBOX 360 Version smilie

8/10 (DS Version)

Fun- 7/10: It can get repetative but it's still great.

Graphics- 9/10: A little cliche, but excellent for a DS game.

Camera- N/A: It's always locked in place as you traverse the side- scrolling levels.

Storyline- 9/10: It's missing most things from the console version, but it fits into place and doesn't have HALF as many plotholes.

Well yer that's my reviews! No flame please smilie I just think the XBOX 360 Version is way to cliche and a little overrated.

I just thought I'd make a point of showing how DotD ranks when stacked up against all the other games for each console it was released for (except mobile). These are from Metacritic.

Sony Playstation 3:
Ranked 391 out of 468 titles

Sony Playstation 2:
Unranked

Nintendo Wii:
Ranked 298 out of 558 titles

Nintendo DS:
Ranked 545 out of 739 titles

X-Box 360:
Ranked 560 out of 799 titles

Wow. <.<;
