Graphically, it is simpler than the console versions of course, but that doesn't mean that it isn't still beautiful. The level of detail on the characters is wonderful. They have as many vibrant colors and smooth lines as the console version, but they don't look pixilated from the transition to the smaller screen. The various areas have their own unique feel to them. It was wonderful looking forward to seeing what the next area was going to look like. I never got bored of the scenery. Even while flying, there was no choppiness in the framerate.
Another thing that I was really happy about was that the voice acting and the music were the same as the console versions. The cutscenes were compromised of still shots and the voicework of Elijah Wood as Spyro, Christina Ricci as Cynder, Wayne Brady as Sparx, and Gary Oldman as Ignitus. I'll give you that they weren't quite as exciting as the console, but they were still very wonderful to watch. I was impressed with the way it all came out.
