Spyro 2 manages to maintain everything that made the original a classic, and goes on to add much, much more to do. You play hockey, you defend villagers from giant ravenous lizards, you play hide-and-seek with a giant, you fight enormous monsters in lava-filled arenas, you play billiards with turtles (you have to see it to understand!), you dogfight versus sheep in flying saucers, and these are just a few of the side quests - I think there are 64 in all. Then there are loads of secret "skill points" throughout the worlds (and a really cute reward for finding all of them.) Overall, Spyro 2 is a beautiful addition to a flawless original game. The sequel adds even more humor, and manages to do it in a way that appeals to adults and children at the same time for different reasons (in much the same way as the old Warner Bros. cartoons.)
If anyone needs further proof of this game's appeal to a broad age spectrum, you should know that my mother absolutely loves it. She had never played a video game before the original Spyro, but when she tried it she was hooked. She bought Spyro 2 the day it came out, and has called me at all hours of the day and night asking for hints. She just got to 93% completion yesterday, and now she's trying to find all the secret skill points. I'm just glad that she now shares my point of view: video games aren't all mindless, repetitive drivel. Some of them have real class.
