How to Play this Game ?
Game Description & Reviews:
Wonderful title, but this ROM hosted here (and at any other rom site, don't bother looking elsewhere) is hacked. This is one of the few PS1 games that featured a rudimentary copy protection, and the hackers who hacked this clearly did not have a good understanding of how to bypass it. In short, this game has glitches everywhere. From things such as levels not tracking progress (eggs collected), to some gems simply not existing in levels. It's literally impossible to complete this game 100% (or even close to that). Sad to say, this is one you'll need to buy and own an original Playstation to enjoy. But don't hesitate if you can find a copy, it's a wonderful game. If you liked the first two Spyro games, it's just as good.
This game is awesome. This ISO is not. It's just another stupid Paradox hacked ISO with loads of glitches. For one, the stupid Paradox logo and it's music that replace the original PlayStation logo go on for OVER 10 MINUTES (at least for me). I basically have to go do something while I wait for the game to start up. Second, some of the gems either don't exist or don't count, meaning they won't add up to your total when you get them. Third, some eggs don't even save when you get them, so if you restart the game, you would have to get them again everytime you restart the game. Fourth, I got stuck in Midway Gardens because a glitch forces Spyro to hop off the whirligig instantly as he gets on it. I bypassed this after a couple of days, but I have no idea at all how. Fifth, the cutscenes have no audio. It plays the audio for about 5 seconds after starting, then mutes for the rest of it. Finally, for me, there was NO FINAL BOSS. It is impossible to 100% this game on this ISO, gems, eggs, or boss-wise. Don't get this one. Find another ISO, this one is garbage.
While the game itself is a good game, this cracked copy is loaded with glitches and errors. I've had health glitches to where you can never heal, bosses that don't die, and (from what I can see) a completely missing final boss.
I have vivid memories of playing this as a young child. Its various levels were challenging but still very fun and it was great to play as other characters beside the purple dragon! By far my favorite spyro title. I belive this was also one of the last Spyro games made by insomniac, which left us the most memorable part of the series.
This game is excellent.
The ISO is not.
