I feel like I should be hunting down ten of these things to collect lizard horns for a quest.

The sick thing is that this game is actually really, really damn good as children's entertainment goes. They really shouldn't have tried to force Spyro on this thing, the game has nothing to do with him and doesn't even pretend he's an important character past the title. They might as well have just branded it "Skylanders" and not drawn attention to this.

KILL IT, KILL IT WITH FIRE!!! That... thing is the worst character model I have ever seen in a game. It looks like roadkill!

Why couldn't they have just used the old Spyro, then we would all be happy. But they had to make their whole Spyro character design a lump of shit painted purple.

Ugghhh

That's not Spyro, that's his evil twin, he's come to destroy the real Spyro's reputation.

im not a fan of the Spyro games. in fact, ive never played one and even i think the change they made is beyond unacceptable. its similar to the change with Dante from Devil May Cry (which i have also never played). if theres one thing you shouldnt do as a developer, its fuck with the main character in your series to the point where they are a completely different being.

People actually liked Spyro games? This is far more shocking to me than what he looks like.

He actually doesn't look to bad in the Skylanders concept art...


But in game he just looks horrible, something got lost in translation here.

I'm done eating Thanksgiving dinner, and now here I am surfing the web on my laptop while the folks watch TV in the living room. I click on this thread, and proceed to shout "Oh dear God!" at the sight of that.... that thing. Luckily everyone thought I was just watching the show.

It looks like Spyro... if he got addicted to meth shortly after Year of the Dragon...

Honestly, it looks like they tried to make him "edgier" and just went overboard in to "retarded". Maybe it's the low brow and the pig-snout, but he looks stupider (as in less smart).

Am I going crazy or didn't this exact same thread exist a while ago?

Spyro died right after the third game, 11 years ago. This new game is just stupid and it's practically an insult to a series that made up quite a bit of my childhood. I still have the soundtrack on my iPod. This game... it just makes me sad.

It's just sad that they butchered Spyro like that just to use his name to help sell a completely different franchise that has nothing to do with him. And I don't really care if Spyro is actually unimportant to the game or of it's good; I'm not buying something that asks me to buy a bunch of toys to fully complete it. Companies are already starting to go overboard with online passes and paid DLC full of cheat codes that should have been in the game for free. I'm not going out to buy a bundle of toys to play content that's already in the game, that's worse than that "on disc DLC" people are always whining about.

But yeah, Spyro. They really screwed over his appearance.

He looks too cartoony, besides, do you know how long it's been since a Spyro game? Expect change, not everyone thought Megaman would be Megaman X. Just chill out, and I kinda like new Spyro, he may not be pretty but at least it's better than nothing
Mega Man X isn't Mega Man. They are two completely different characters, thus of course Mega Man X does not look like Mega Man.

However, the pictures in post 1 and post 6 are supposed to be the same character. Your comparison of two completely different characters is irrelevant here.

Try watching the redesign in action.
It's not that bad. Yeah, it's still kinda ugly, but not quite as bad as that one screenshot. The trailer I posted there is for dark spyro, but he's just a recolor, nothing different.

Besides, as someone has pointed out, this is targeted at kids who wouldn't be familiar with the old Spyro anyway. Also, this game has 31 other characters for you to buy and despite the name, Spyro is no more important to the plot or gameplay than any of the others. This is a Skylanders game, not a Spyro game and I really wish they would have just left him out of it.

But be expecting more of this. Every time I look at a display in a store, it looks like rapid wolves have attacked it, so I'd say the game is selling well, and at eight dollars a pop for each character, very profitable too.

I objected with how he looked when he moved to the PS2. My favourite littlest dragon is dead to me now. Dead.
