Spyro Reignited Trilogy Switch Review: A Fiery Blast From The Past

SpyroL Reignited Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch still brings all the platforming, fire-breathing, adorable fun. with a few technical limitations.

spyro, reignited, trilogy, nintendo

Returning to a game you played decades ago can do one of two things; remind you of its greatness or remind you that some games just don’t age well. Game design is a fickle beast, one that has changed significantly throughout the years. Older video games often suffer from the technological limitations of their time, forcing the developers to find creative ways to overcome these barriers. Somehow, Spyro Reignited Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch achieves the former, not only rekindling my love for the purple dragon, but also elevating his platforming antics to new heights.

A Beautiful (Slightly) Blurry Screen

spyro, reignited, trilogy, nintendo

The original level design by Insomniac Games holds up unbelievably well after all these years, while the fresh new graphics given to the game by Toys For Bob only add to the overall experience. Whether you’re charging horns first into a lizard who is using a metal pot as a shield or setting sheep ablaze with your scorching breath, the game is nothing short of a joy to look at. It’s a cartoon come to life, and while there is certainly a downgrade in quality from its Xbox and Playstation siblings, it still looks beautiful, even in handheld mode.

Slightly blurry graphics are a small price to pay to have the ability to bring Spyro with you everywhere you go, as the game was practically made for portable gaming. Each level across all three titles is littered with collectibles for you to find well after the main questline is complete. The ability to pick the game up for 10 to 15 minutes and dive back into this cartoon wonderland to collect a few more gems arguably makes the Switch version the best one currently on the market.

The three games included, Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon all have a simple but entertaining story. In a nutshell, a ‘bad guy’ does something terrible to the land, and it’s up to you to make it right again. The cutscenes are adorable to watch, and Spyro in particular is beautifully animated both in and out of these sections. In fact, this is one of the few times I wished a game had a built in ‘Camera Mode’ so I could capture all of his loveable antics. Instead, I found myself exploring every corner of every level, not only to try and 100% each game, but also to see the beautifully designed levels and take pictures with the Switch’s built in screenshot function. It’s a simple game that revolves around the joys of discovery and exploring the impeccably designed levels.

Buttin’ Heads and Flamin’ Faces

Enemies in these levels typically must be defeated in one of two ways; by breathing fire on them or by charging into them with your horns. It might take new players a few minutes to get the hang of the charge attack, as it is sometimes hard for the camera to keep up with a fast moving Spyro: an issue that is exacerbated when playing in handheld mode on a tiny screen. Some enemies are immune to your fire breath attack, usually indicated by some sort of makeshift armor crafted out of metal. Others won’t take damage from your charge attack, typically the massive enemies that dwarf Spyro. The games all do a decent job of giving players a wide variety of enemies to deal with, but it never was a real challenge figuring out how to beat them. The bosses, while employing some sort of twist such as having to attack their exposed back or destroy their defensive totems, are fun but never difficult. If you’re looking for a challenging game, Spyro probably isn’t the answer, save for a few rage-inducing mini-games.

Although the games aren’t difficult, they do a great job of keeping players engaged by introducing new concepts throughout the trilogy. Each world you’ll visit brings a fresh coat of paint to admire and will typically add some sort of new puzzle, mini-game, or hazard to deal with. If you aren’t a completionist and collecting items isn’t your thing, these puzzles and enemies will still be enough to keep you hooked during your playtime. Toys For Bob has also added ‘Skill Points’ to the trilogy, which are acquired by tackling specific tasks across the world, and unlock bonus artwork from the developers.

Did You Even Put Anything On The Cartridge?

One major gripe, however, is that the physical copy of the game requires an 8-gigabyte download in order to access all the content. The game doesn’t explicitly state what content you are missing out on without this data (you can start playing all three games without it), but Activision has clarified that the download is required to play later levels from the last two games in the trilogy. It’s ridiculous that purchasing the physical copy requires such a significant day one download. A small patch might be understandable, but an 8-gigabyte download is massive, especially with the restrictive size of the Switch’s onboard hard drive. Given this huge day one patch, it’s almost pointless to buy a physical copy.

spyro, reignited, trilogy, nintendo

You would think that the game wouldn’t have lengthy loading screens either, what with that massive download along with the fact that it’s an old game running on new hardware, but that’s not the case. Every time you enter a new world you are greeted with a loading screen. Granted, the graphical overhaul probably does push the Switch to it’s limits, but the load times tend to run longer than I first expected. There are also dozens of worlds to explore, and unless you plan to 100% each one the first time you set foot in it, you’ll be watching Spyro fly from zone to zone more often than you would like.

A Triumphant Return

spyro, reignited, trilogy, nintendo

These are only minor blemishes in an otherwise stellar game. Seeing Spyro reborn (err, reignited) in such spectacular fashion is an absolute blast and having the ability to take the game with me is just the icing on the cake. Fans of the series will find much to love here, but don’t expect to find anything more than the games you remember in a fresh coat of paint. Toys For Bob did justice to the original titles, but didn’t add much new content outside of a few menu adjustments and the aforementioned Skill Points. And to be honest, that’s perfectly fine. The trilogy already offers up dozens of hours of content for players to explore and it’s evident that the developers work was a labor of love. If you missed out on Spyro’s adventures the first time around, now is the perfect time to be introduced to this loveable-purple dragon.

Switch Re:Port Review #52: Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Transistor, DC Universe Online

Today’s Switch Re:Port Review features one of my most wanted Switch ports ever, Chris looking at a trilogy I was surprised to see not be day one with other platforms, and more. If you missed the last Switch Re:Port Review, check it out here. Today’s edition features reviews for Spyro Reignited Trilogy and DC Universe Online from Chris White and Transistor from me. If you’re new to the Switch Re:Port Reviews on the Geek, I (with the help of the fine folk here) look at the Switch ports of games that have been released on other platforms. These reviews aren’t just to talk about the game but to look at how the games run and play on the Switch and how they use the Switch features.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Chris White Originally released on Playstation 4 and Xbox One and scored 8/10 on PlayStation 4

The Nintendo Switch version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy is the same game as seen on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It runs relatively well both docked and in handheld, albeit some minor lagging during the travelling between different worlds. Occasionally after a scene when you’re interacting with one of the NPCs, the camera tends to jump a little and you’re forced to re-centre, and in general the camera gets itself into some awkward positions. As you play through each game in the trilogy, the movement gets a little better, so the same issues start to disappear, but whenever you’re in an enclosed space there’s no escaping a poor view of the action.

There’s also a huge problem with button responsiveness, especially in the original. There were plenty of times when I tried to shoot flames at an enemy and nothing came out, leading to me losing part of my health. I never had an issue with charging – other than the lack of control also present in the PlayStation 4 version – but using flames was a constant problem. Not only that but trying to glide after a jump was failing quite substantially, and it made me replay the same section a fair few times.

It was such a shock as I never had that issue on the PlayStation 4, making it rather disappointing on the Switch. Visually it’s a pretty game, but detail does feel sharper whilst in handheld. It’s still lovely to look at whilst you’re playing docked, but it’s not as crisp. If it wasn’t for the problems with the control’s response time, I could easily play through the games again, however, if you’re only interested in playing for the portability factor, it’s still decent enough to take with you on your travels.

DC Universe Online

Chris White Originally released on PS3, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and scored 6/10 on PS3

spyro, reignited, trilogy, nintendo

DC Universe Online came out in 2011, and has featured on both the current and last gen Playstation consoles, as well as the Xbox One and PC, but now, we finally get to give it a spin on the go with the Switch release. Whilst it’s one of only a few superhero MMOs on the market, the amount of free content available for it is impressive.

You can’t transfer your older characters to the Switch (at the time of writing this review), meaning you’re going to have to start all over again. The grind is probably not going to be something you consider, however, if you’re new to DC Universe Online and fancy giving it a try, it’s a perfect title to take with you on the go, providing you have a constant internet connection. When you first get stuck in, there’s plenty of stuff to do, and if you’re a fan of DC Comics in general you’re probably going to love running around the various locations such as Gotham City and Metropolis.

The environments are pretty dull, though, and for saying there’re plenty of famous locations within the comics such as ACE Chemicals and the Daily Planet, they all feel a bit barren. I’m a big fan of the movement in DC Universe Online, and getting from one place to the next becomes much easier when you’re allowed to fly or use your super speed, depending on what you chose during the character creation screen.

Within the first few hours of DC Universe Online, I’d already foiled the fiendish plans of Scarecrow, Bane, and Braniac, and met up with Nightwing, Wonder Woman, and Batman. I’d started to build my own unique hideout, explored some of the sites of Gotham City and Metropolis, and beaten up hundreds of enemies. Combat can become repetitive especially if you’re not playing around with the different techniques you have – or unlock – but it’s no different to other MMOs for the first 10 hours or so. Grinding through these missions is essential, and once you hit level 30 the game opens up giving you more freedom and options to improve your Combat Rating (CR). Whilst the visuals remain unchanged, the sorcery traits I was using looked pretty cool when tussling with gangs of thugs, and getting out my bowstaff to dispatch them was equally satisfying.

It took a long time before people started to play DC Universe Online on Switch, so I didn’t have many chances to test out the PvE and PvP game modes, but as I’ve spent more time playing, finding a team of heroes to fight with takes much less time than it did at the start. There’s plenty of content right from the start, but depending on how invested you are in the story and characters, the repetition sets in, and without any noticeable upgrades to the environments and the visuals, you may start to grow tired of it.

For a free-to-play MMO, DC Universe Online is more than worth getting, and depending on how much you enjoy your time with it, you may consider sinking some cash into it. Getting to interact with all the superheroes and villains within the DC Universe was right up my street, and spending my cash to buy new upgrades and gear, as well as a sidekick that followed me around Gotham, made the time I had with DC Universe Online worth it.


Originally released on PlayStation 4, iOS, and PC platforms and scored 10/10 on PlayStation 4

spyro, reignited, trilogy, nintendo

I still remember discussing Transistor when Adam when he reviewed it back when it debuted a few years ago on PlayStation 4 and PC. I loved Bastion but Transistor is one of the best games ever and Supergiant Games’ peak by far. I ended up buying it everywhere and have now played it about four times across PlayStation 4 and iOS and now Nintendo Switch. When they announced ports for Bastion and Transistor for the Switch, I knew I had to buy it again because Transistor is something that everyone should play.

The Switch port of Transistor has the same content as other versions of the game. Supergiant Games has done a good job with rumble feedback for a lot of the game but the new control options in the iOS version are absent here. If you played this on PlayStation 4, you know how amazing the controller speaker experience was in Transistor. That is obviously not here thanks to the hardware but the Switch version makes up for it with the ability to play at home or on the go. Unlike Bastion, Transistor was never ported to the PS Vita so this is the only system that can play it on the go outside iOS.

In terms of visuals and performance, Transistor looks and runs well in both modes. The only small issue I noticed was with a few instances of slight frame pacing during movement in a few areas. The rest of Transistor runs great and this is absolutely a fantastic version of the game.

Overall, this is a great way to experience on of the best games ever. I really wish they had added the touchscreen functionality from the iOS version as an option to make this the definitive version of the game. If you don’t care about touchscreen controls, the Switch version is amazing and absolutely worth getting if you’ve never played this game before.
