The Spyro games on the PSone are remembered by many as some of the console's best 3-D platform games, and quite rightly so. In Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, his first next-generation adventure, the world's smallest, friendliest, purple-est dragon is back to jump, glide and start brush fires, and the new game starts off well as you watch the dastardly Ripto accidentally disperse the magic dragonflies across the gameworld and force you, as Spyro, to bring them all back to safety. One of the best things about Enter the Dragonfly is the huge number of moves at Spyro's disposal. As you'd expect of any dragon he can jump, fly, hover, head-butt and breathe flames--but now he can also breathe ice and electricity as well as magic bubbles (very handy for catching dragonflies, and a clever nod to arcade classic Bubble Bobble). Unfortunately the main problem with the game is the graphics, which, although they look okay in the screenshots, are very jerky when you play the game. The level design isn't terribly imaginative either and the game as a whole is surprisingly short. Since Enter the Dragonfly isn't made by the same team as the previous Spyro games--those guys went on to make the excellent Ratchet & Clank instead--it's perhaps no surprise that it isn't quite up to its predecessors. It's still a quality game though and certainly one to consider for fans of the series. --David Jenkins
