Everyone's a Star
Dawn of the Dragon plays host to some famous talent within its cast - Elijah Wood returns as the voice of Spyro, Christina Ricci sizzles as Cynder, Gary Oldman illuminates us as Ignitus, Wayne Brady lights it up as Sparx, Mark Hamill casts ominous shadows as the evil Dark Master himself and Blair Underwood appears as the new character, Hunter. With such an all star cast contributing to the final episode in this story, you're in for another first rate adventure.
Afraid of the Dark
The Dark Master returns! The evil one and his minions are spreading out across the world, and it's up to Spyro and Cynder to join forces in combat against the rushing, dreadful horde. Familiar faces Sparx and Ignitus join the purple pair in their adventures but you'll see many new adversaries and larger than life bosses in your travels across many diverse and dramatic landscapes.
Enter the Dragons
Fans of previous Spyro titles will be ecstatic with the advancements in overall gameplay and combat system. Baby dragons only glide - but now Spyro soars to new heights and launches into flight at any time! Upgrade new devastating elemental powers with collected gems along the way as in previous adventures but now Spyro and Cynder have all new grappling abilities to throw down upon their enemies! As if that wasn't enough to chomp on, there are secret pieces of dragon armor to collect that when completed into a full suit, alter the dragons' appearance and grant the heroes incredible powers and bonuses!
4 Horns R Better Than 2
Not only does Cynder tag along for the fight, you can swap between controlling Spyro to controlling Cynder in-game with a press of a button! This fantastic method of team play allows you to immediately access Cynder's exclusive abilities such as Fear and Poison! It doesn't end there; the two dragons must act in unison at critical times to solve team puzzles, and also in combat to perform special team moves that inflict severe punishment upon their many swarming enemies.
