100% not required for Platinum is disappointing

34 posts in this topic

It is a bit strange how there's a trophy in Spyro 2 for unlocking the super flame but not defeating the sorceress for a second time.

Meh. I got the spyro 1&2 plat and the best trophies were the level specific ones. Finding all the gems and stuff was easy with sparx so was a bit tedious. 

If I understand though, not all eggs are required, which could save some tie. Is it 100 that are needed?

I was also surprised that this game doesn't require 100%, I'm not sure about the eggs because to open certain portals a certain amount is necessary. even so in the first area of the game i have almost everything at 100%, i like to explore everything including the side quests :)

I must agree with the OP.

Both first games oblige you to complete 100% of the game to unlock the last trophy. Spyro 3 is the hardest and you only need 100 eggs to access the final boss, everything else is miscellaneous trophies for some each level. The platinum would be much rarer if it asked everything like the previous games.

 

And yes, people; we can (and I did) 120% of the third game. It doesn’t invalidate the fact that people are disappointed for the trophy list being easier -_-

TBH I was more disappointed that chasing Moneybags was way too easy. I was really looking forward getting the gems back from him, but it was kind of a letdown. I think you had to chase him a lot more in the original trilogy. Also after playing Reignited Ripto's Rage/Gateway to Glimmer, is still my favourite Spyro game.

 

While I do understand the disappointment, I personally didn't mind. It was weird, yes. But I didn't mind.

Especially as it's a gold trophy too.

So at first I too was disappointed that 100% completion wasn’t necessary for the platinum, but then I got to the stupid parts of the game like the skateboarding race and decided it wasn’t so bad after all. I was able to coast through the rest of game with no problem knowing 100% wasn’t required for the platinum.

I agree with the OP - like the other 2 in the trilogy, there should have been a Gold trophy for getting all the gems/eggs, Really strange decision to not have it as a trophy.

Tbh I am glad that the Bonus round isn't for the Platinum since I was never any good at winning the Yeti Race without the Star Exploit* that allowed Spyro to get a permanent maximum boost instead of you doing tricks and Toys for Bob didn't put it in.  Personally this is actually my favourite of the trilogy [ and actually the first Spyro game I bought and still own, did the the demo only of the first one ]as apposed to Gateway to Glimmer aka Ripto's Rage in the US.

 

*If you stood Spyro in one of the Boost Stars on the racecourse and counted to 100, the skateboard would have a permanent boost and you can get past all the Yetis and win the race, removing the need to do tricks to fill the boost bar.
