Honey Marsh may be in fact part of that speedway in YOTD with all the honey rivers and the giant beehives. There's a whole area of the Dragon/Avalarian Realms covered in honey! grin

It looks so cool... What assignment did you make this for? I'd say sent it to Vivendi and see how they'll react...

I didn,t like the game platform much but any game with Spyro in it is good I think. There I put in my two gems worth.

If anyone bothers to click that link, they will find my review. I gave it an 8 out of 10. Huzzah for me. XD

Now to review AHT and give it the 5 out of 10 it so justly deserves. *fires up her old account which hasn't been used in two years*

I personally didn't like this game at all. The game just felt...unpolished and incomplete(the game froze on me a couple of times), like so much more could've been done with it. If they fixed all of the bugs, explained how Ripto came back a bit more, added more than just one homeworld and 9 stages(This woud've made the game longer than about 8-10 hours to beat completely), some more bosses(Crush and Gulp should've been at least bosses, but instead...they just do nothing), added more extras, and probaly some more playable characters, mabye I would've thought of the game being half-way decent.

Me personally kinda liked AHT better, however I thought the game could've been a bit better. For starters the mini-games in this game are terrible in comparasion to some of the other Spyro games, needed more weird stuff like the Ice Hockey, Boxing, space ships, etc, rather than just repeated turrent gun shooting, gem-shard finding, etc. I also didn't like the whole "no portals" thing, that just made more unessicary backtracking. f they got rid of the enemies always giving Gems, that would've also got rid of the "unlimited gems" thing, seeing as baskets and gems on the ground don't come back. If those were fixed(as well as some of the personallities of characters), this would've been more on par with the Insomniac games, instead it's just an average platformer.

This game had very good graphics... which explains why it's so slow. That's a big technical problem they should have fixed before releasing the game. The gameplay was reasonably good but the game only had a few levels, and only one boss. The storyline was bad. This title has only been half finished, and if it weren't for the "Spyro" title the game might have been significantly less popular. So overall this game gets a 5/10.

I beg to differ - I've seen plenty of games with higher-quality graphics that have played as smoothly (if not smooother) that any other (take either the Jak and Daxter or Ratchet and Clank series, for example.)

I just think the game is an unfinished title that should have spent at least two more months in production.

ETD- the only reason i like it is because it was my first ps2 game, electric breath, and ripto was the main villian

AHT- almost everything

Well, I did like the music and graphics. However, it was too short, annoying loading times, dull characters, and way too many glitches. It was not the worst, but far from the best.

You said it.

But would VU ever consider giving 2 "whole" months of their "precious" time to produce a "B-grade" "kids'" game? Nooooo....

I wish VU weren't such tight-arses, I really do. Then we would be able to play, and enjoy, Spyro games that actually raivaled the first 3.

Hmm... something else they really need to do is to think up of a new, ORIGINAL storyline. I know Insomniac basically used the same sort of thing is all of their games, but still, 10+ games of pretty similar stuff starts to get a little boring...
