Yesterday, as my contribution for Spyro Community Day, I uploaded the sequel to one of my most successful videos. Now I can post them both here!

ah! i remember watching your first video!

i also am not a big fan of her portrayal in rt. i'm not exactly sure why sanzaru took the direction they did... but then again, they had a really limited timeline, so they might not have had enough time to really understand what was going on with her.

Bianca is a symptom of SRT 2 and 3's voice direction being awful. I've said it before on here, but it's like the VA's didn't even listen to the original's voice acting to get a sense of how to voice the characters, and as a result a lot of the characters in Reignited Spyro 2 and 3 don't even sound like themselves.

The Sorceress is a glaring example of this. In the original, she's a vicious, conniving, evil woman that you can hear in her voice how venomous her plan is. In Reignited, she's just a generic platformer evil-sounding villain.

I agree with this so much, this is one of my biggest problems with Reignited and one of the reasons why the game doesn't feel like Spyro to me personally.


I miss Gregg Berger as Hunter so much, too smilie.

i adore robbie daymond hunter, but i agree that the sorceress and bianca are not very well done in reignited. that seems to be more on sanzaru than anything else.

I don't even think it's a Sanzaru problem (for once). Even SRT Spyro 2's NPC's don't sound like how they did in the originals 95% of the time. Like I said, it's like the voice actors weren't supplied with the character's original voice lines' audio to get a feel for how they sounded, so they tried to go off of a description of how the characters sounded, and those descriptions were off, to put it mildly.

oh yeah that's possible, if they weren't shown the original line delivery then that makes it very hard for them to know how they should sound. i don't expect them to sound one to one, it's a remake, there should be some liberties taken to update how they see fit. but there's some lines that are iconic.

-she sounds like a baby fairy
-she looks like a terrified squirrel
-the hood just suddenly comes off
-the way some of her lines are delivered..one example is the lack of suspension pause in the line "Listen here, dragon....Spyro..."
-why's ur robe sleeves size XXXL

Honestly, Reignited's audio direction in general is pretty terrible.

* Music's quiet as hell
* Music isn't looped properly, so intro and outros of the music are cut off (this really pisses me off). Go listen to Colossus in Reignited. Hope you like how it starts 14 seconds into the song!
* VA quality declined in SRT Spyro 2 and 3.
* The enemy/fodder death sounds are nowhere near as iconic as the originals. Sound effects too now come to think of it.

Could go on and on. Reignited is a great game, but man it disappoints in areas.

Yup, these are all true, and the 2nd and 3rd ones annoy me the most. R.I.P Nancy's theme slowed down summer forest ending.

I feel like the Idol Springs soundtrack in Reignited builds up to nothing..if you know what I mean?

Idol Springs isn't my favorite piece of Spyro music (I don't hate it by any means), but the Reignited version sucks.
