Things To Discuss With Your Family
Common Sense Media in their written review of this game do highlight some talking points that this game raises.
For instance, Spyro — despite being a classic hero — is not perfect, and therefore has his faults. This aspect of the game should encourage parents to talk about character strengths with their families and as well as discussing whether ‘bad guys’ are fairly portrayed in most games, or how their pasts influence their current behaviours.
