That was actually what I disliked the most about EtD, and moreso in AHT... though I have things I hated more there.

I hope they'll return in SSL, but I doubt it...

Spyro Shadow Legacy on Nintendo DS. The newest Spyro game.

Anyhow, I have no idea what happened to the portals. However, portals are not that original. We have portals in Crash Bandicoot. We have other devices to reach different worlds in other games, such as in Kya: Dark Lineage, where you use a magic whirlwind. There's not a huge difference.

Maybe they wanted to be "original"... And turned the Spyro universe udside-down doing so.

I'm pretty sure portals did exist in EtD in some places, perhaps I'm wrong. But AHT... definitely no portals at all, I so loved the portals as well - at least there were no loading times between the levels in one world.

You know, you're right. The portals were used for mini-games and exits in Enter the Dragonfly. They were pretty accurate-looking as well. grin

And there where Portals in the original Ty game. They were like rainbow vortexes, but, like they got rid of the portals in AHT, they got rid of them in Ty 2. But I think that Ty 2 and AHT are a bit the same, they had portals in previous game(s) and got rid of them in the new addition, and made the main character arrogant. (Ty is a bit, he had to ask what the reaward was for a challenge. Normally he'd do it for the hell of it!)

Concerning the portals, I feel that they were an integral part of Spyro, and that VU's removal of them is just another attempt to break away from 'the trilogy'

No loading times? Pfft. I can handle trilogy-style loading times - not the PS2 EtD loading times, mind!

Grr...dang VU...

O.o

I haven't played Any of the older games in awhile

Forgot all about the portals, They where awesome. MY favourite Places and portals had to be in Spyro1.

The Levels in Spyro1 and 2 where the most awesome.

....Dear UV..thats another point down for ya. least from me.

The mini games and realms in the GBA games (save Attack of the Rhynocs) also had portals, even if they were a goldish color, they still looked similar to the ones in the original games...

But still, VU seems to be phasing portals out, despite the plot of Spyro #2 being heavily based on them.

Why are they doing this? It's all well beyond me. What's wrong with portals? They were a BRILLIANT way of sneaking loading periods in under your nose!

AND I liked seeing all my recently collectted gems fly across the screen, provided that Moneybags never notices just HOW much I really have...

^ I think that, too.

Why the hell are you even blaming VU even though they didn't actually MAKE the games? It doesn't make sense.

I am NOT a VU basher like most of you are. I can TOLERATE the new Spyro games, unlike alot pf you.

Qwerty opened my eyes, you're blaming some company tht only publishes games! Eurocom (Yay for British companies!), Digital Eclipse and CheckSix are the ones you shuld blame.I kinda like VU's games and I love Insomniac's.

So stop blaming VU for crap they didn't even do! (Holy fewmits. I'm stickinng up for VU! *insert sarcastic gasp here*
