When I first saw the poster for Spyro: A Hero's Tail, I thought of the likes of Final Fantasy IX and The Dark Crystal.
The cover of the good PS2 Spyro game sets a different mood compared to the game itself, implying a darker, more epic adventure akin to that of fantasy movies of the 80s' or maybe that's because it was drawn by Drew Struzan but still...
This should especially make since the dark gems look like dark crystals.
The world that inspired me is dying. I will cling to what is right and reject this new status quo set in motion.
