Spyro Reignited Trilogy is still a blast. If you’ve been pining for the chance to replay these games for decades, I suspect it’ll live up to your most cherished memories — and if, like me, you’re new to the series, you’ll easily understand why these games were so beloved in the first place.
20 years after its original release, it is still a great platform game, with the perfect balance between classic gameplay and new technical elements. On Nintendo Switch looks and feels great, especially on portable mode... but It's a shame that this port suffers from longer loading times and some FPS issues when playing in dock mode.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy can be a product made because of the nostalgia of a certain public, however, the games can be enjoyed even by today’s standards due to it’s quality. It’s a title recommended to those that miss the series and to those that like the “collect-a-ton” sub-genre. Also, it’s simplicity makes it a great game for children and to those that are not used to gaming.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a wonderful love letter to a classic series, keeping everything that made the original games what they were, but slapping on a fresh coat of paint for the HD era. There are a few creaking bones showing their age here and there, but only due to the developers’ desire to keep things as accurate as possible. The Switch version looks absolutely stunning and runs surprisingly well, so if you’re looking for a classic 3D platforming experience, you should definitely give this a look-in.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy offers us a remake of the first three Spyro titles so we can enjoy them again, looking now better than ever. It is a very accessible and fun trilogy, which will be enjoyed by both lifelong fans and new players. If you love to find collectibles, here you have entertainment for many hours.
Spyro looks and plays great on the Switch. As expected, there are some graphical compromises, but particularly on handheld mode is one of the best looking games on the system. And, of course, the three games still are a lot of fun.
Rather disappointing on the Switch. Visually it’s a pretty game, but detail does feel sharper whilst in handheld. It’s still lovely to look at whilst you’re playing docked, but it’s not as crisp. If it wasn’t for the problems with the control’s response time, I could easily play through the games again, however, if you’re only interested in playing for the portability factor, it’s still decent enough to take with you on your travels.
