IGN: Spyro: Year of the Dragon Review (1710 words)
The biggest question surrounding Year of the Dragon's shift to a multi-character focus is whether it can make that many different gameplay models work, while still making them a unique alternative to the way Spyro himself plays.
Year of the Dragon features more than just Spyro, and it's an eminiently successful effort on Insomniac's part to expand and develop the scope of their game, but the balance of the action is still familiar, as is the visual style.
But Year of the Dragon, even if Spyro has to share a little bit of the spotlight, is as fine a note as any for them to go out on, and proves that the PlayStation, even if it's losing all its thunder to PS2, can still play host to a universally excellent game.
Crushed by Inertia: Year of the Dragon (1081 words)
Year of the Dragon is a tough cop movie made in 1985.
And Michael Cimino's Year of the Dragon is among the best of the bunch, a stylish and delightfully sleazy journey through the underground world of corruption and gang violence in New York City's Chinatown.
Year of the Dragon is not quite up to the level of Scarface, if only because it lacks that film's sense of scale and grandeur.
