I didn't pay $60 dollars,, but I will say ALL the Mario games are and play superior then all of the Spyro games. Spyro is very shallow experience. I recently played them and was disappointed. They don't hold up compared to Mario 64, Mario Sunshine and Mario Galaxy. While you do collect things in the Mario game it doesn't feel like the fetch quest that Spyro feels like. I guess i was expecting more from the pedigree of isomanics. Mind you I never played Spyro in the PS1 days and started with Ratchet and Clank when it came to isomanic games. Ratchet and Clank collection would be worth the $60 dollars like the Mario games.
