The Legend of Spyro: Dawn Of The Dragon is a mystery. Beautiful graphics and incredible music suck you in, and then boring but good looking combat ruins the whole thing (the elemental attacks are pretty good though). The thing that irritates me most about this game is the pretty bad flight control. Flying in this game... is just... wow. All in all, a beautiful game that's totally destroyed by two major flaws. If you're looking for a game where all you want is to play as a fire breathing dragon, then get it. Trust me, if this game had good flight control and an actual aiming reticle, it would be much better, but I suggest you rent it. It's not worth the buy. It can be fun sometimes, though, because the boss battles are very cinematic and for some reason the flying only works during combat, which is where is funnest to use but needed the least. It's a mix of good and bad. If you tend to overlook things, you'll either hate or love this game. It's a conundrum. Rent it, or regret it.
