This might be a dumb question, but if I miss a grand prix, does that mean I miss out on unlocking the racers from that challenge? I missed out on the Back N. Time grand prix as I haven't played the game in a while, so does that mean I won't be able to unlock Baby T?

You can fill the GP bar with Wumpa Coins after the end of a Grand Prix (they give you 3-4 days of rotations in the shop aaaaand to fill the bar to the gold tier)
Get the bar items before they goes out

Post all about it when it comes out! To refresh myself on the first Spyro (besides 100%ing it 3 times), I recently started replaying it, I'm up to Gnasty's World now! While I'm dissapointed about Ripto and The Sorceress being left out, Gnasty is way better of a villian than I remember. I love his voice! He looks to be a speed character so I'll play as him loads. Can't wait.

This got merged with this topic, it was a Spyro GP topic before lmao

Not really sure if this is the right topic, but here are my thoughts on the Spyro Grand Prix so far:

Happy Thoughts!

- I like the music from the Spyro track! I think it's repurposed from some unused music in Spyro 3. You can find it if you hack the game and freeze the title screen.


- The fur they added to Hunter's model looks nice!

- I like how they changed the normal CTR title screen to a purple one with Spyro designs.

- The Sparx power up music is cool! It makes me think of the GBA games.


Complaining Thoughts!

- I don't like Spyro and Hunter's voice lines. They're kind of long and awkward in comparison to the other characters in the game. Plus they sort of feel like they're missing a certain bite to them, which makes the characters seem sort of incomplete to me. (This is a general problem I have with Reignited) Haven't played Gnasty, so I don't have anything to say on him yet.

I found this GP a bit disappointing so far to be honest.

Pros
-The characters we got are cool.
-Spyro Circuit is pretty and I like the music. I also like how they made crates and Wumpa Fruit into chests and Gems.
-The kart designs are cool.
-I like the Elemental Wheels and Gem paint jobs.
-The new title screen was a nice surprise and I hope they give us the option to keep it after the GP ends.

Cons
-Layout wise, Spyro Circuit is just not great, easily the worst of the GP tracks so far. The only (intentional) shortcut in the track can only be consistently made on demand by Speed characters. The track is oddly linear despite open-ended exploration being a core theme of Spyro (so I was expecting something more like Yoshi Valley from Mario Kart 64, where there are a variety of routes to play around with). A lot of the turns are just awkward to make especially if you want to be a Speed character. And for some reason there is no offroad sections at all, instead, the grassy area you would think is offroad is considered out of bounds. Even the top of the walls surrounding it is, meaning you can be respawned by Sparx for just grazing the tip of the wall. Also it's disappointing that they used two Artisans levels and two Magic Crafters levels, they should have thrown in a Tree Tops section and maybe something from Dream Weavers too. Also I don't know what the deal is with random fireworks chests sitting in the middle of certain roads. Like they're not even intelligently placed or anything, their placement feels very random.

-No legendary skin for Spyro at the top of the Gold Tier of the Nitro Bar, instead it's Evil Crunch. In general, a lot of the skins just aren't really Spyro related. I was expecting stuff like a Spyro hoodie for Crash, an Elora skin for Coco, Sgt. Penta, etc. But other than the Devli Dog Zam and Gnorc skins for the Norms, none of the skins are actually Spyro themed, either just generic fantasy themed stuff or something completely unrelated.

-Accel mains got screwed since Coco is the only bonus character in Accel and none of the new characters are Accel. I generally feel the stats for the Spyro characters are all over the place. IMO Spyro should have been Accel, Hunter should have been Speed, and Gnasty could be Balanced or another Speed. If they were going to make Spyro Speed, then they should have at least made Hunter Accel, but he's stuck in Balanced instead for some bizarre reason, even though Balanced is actually quite slow.

I'm hoping they will at least sprinkle some Legendary skins for the Spyro characters throughout other GPs since they were willing to break themeing for this one.

I'm rather unfamiliar with the whole PlayStation online thing, since I haven't had my PS4 for too long and I haven't really done anything online. So I've got a few questions to ask.

To access the pit stop and grand prix, do I just have to be logged into my PlayStation network account, or do I need to buy PlayStation Plus? And how exactly do you unlock the new characters (Spyro, etc), and do you need PS Plus for it? All I got from videos was 'play a lot of races'. And are the grand prix just versus online players, or can it be versus CPU, and will I need PS Plus for that too?

All you need for the pit stop and grand prix is to be connected to the internet and have your game be up to date.
To unlock Spyro, you just have to keep doing races to fill up a nitro gauge. You don't even have to do multiplayer, just any race at all. If you go on Grand Prix on the main menu, you can find lists of objectives you can complete to fill the nitro gauge more quickly.
Other characters are unlocked either from Adventure mode or buying them from the pit stop with wumpa coins that you obtain from every race.
You only need PS Plus if you want to do online multiplayer.
Hope that helps. smilie

Worth noting that online races give you more Coins and Nitro, but they can still be collected racing offline, as long as you keep your internet connection while playing.

My sister bought a PS4 for her and I bought Nitro-Fueled to play on it. Finished Adventure in a day, must be a sign I'm loving it.

Don't have PSPlus for now but you can PM me to add me, I'll do have eventually.

How exactly do you unlock Spyro and all the other characters? I've looked online but I can't find out how. I think I missed out on some characters because I didn't realize the grand prix were only on for a few weeks at a time.

You have to build Nitro to unlock Spyro. To do that, go to the Grand Prix mode in the main menu and check the available missions. Complete them in all other modes to fill your Nitro Gauge. You'll unlock various prizes, including Spyro.

Gnasty and Hunter must be bought in the Pit Stop using Wumpa Coins. The Pit Stop changes its available items everyday, so it's up to luck on whether or not those two will be available. Gnasty is available in a bundle with two skins for Small Norm and Big Norm today, at least for me. Dunno if the Pit Stop is the same for everybody.

As for characters from past Grand Prix events, Activision said those characters will be available again in a later date. We don't know when and how, but I assume by the time all Grand Prix events are over. We hope they keep their promise.

I'm already loving this Grand Prix, and it hasn't even officially started yet. lol

Honestly, while I still enjoyed the Spyro & Friends Grand Prix quite a bit, it felt like a step down from the Back in Time one.
Which is weird to me because I wasn't really expecting much from the latter at all, but it ended up blowing my expectations way out of the water.
Conversely, the Spyro & Friends Grand Prix - while still good - felt a bit disappointing by comparison, and admittedly a little rushed. ;;

This Grand Prix already feels like an improvement over the previous one, and is honestly shaping up to be my favorite of the Grand Prix events so far. <3

Hey gamers give this a try

Select spectral paint (any color)
Select roadster
Hover over Dots n’ Spots decal
Hover over Lone Star decal

Congrats you crashed your game

At least let me know if this crashes your game? I don't know if it's just me
