This game has so much to offer, superb graphics with no glitches or imperfections, a cute as can be main character and some of the best gameplay mechanics available on the console.

Unlike other 3d platformers of the time this game has very long draw distance (meaning you can see miles away and very clearly), this really helps you in the game as you can clearly see where you need to go and plan a way to get there. Spyro has many moves including an excellent glide ability and the advantage of being able to breath fire (which helps), the camera is also very cool and rarely gets in the way as it does in other games from the genre (even Super Mario 64).

Overall I would say that Spyro The Dragon is an essential purchase for all Playstation owners and can be picked up for under a fiver on the PS3 Store front.
