Am I the only one who thinks Spyro looks worse in this game than in Skylanders? I mean this game specifically, I love how he looks in the other Legend of Spyro's.

It was a very nice nostalgic feeling playing this game again on my PS3.
There were definitely some things that didn't make any sense (ie, story/design), but I truly enjoyed it nonetheless.
TLoS will always be my one of my favorite Spyro series. <3

I started playing this most recently (I've actually had it for a while but never knew how to work the controls but then my friend helped me) and it's already a really good game. Excited to complete it!

A epic end to a brilliant story
Sure it has inconsistency
Sure it had dodgy camera
But the game itself
Was beautiful
The story was awesome
The visuals
Omg
The visuals!

I love this game... I used to play it endlessly then I stopped for a while and I'm playing it again and watching full house reruns again just like I did two years ago

The home console versions of this game are epic, or the PS3 version in my case. The DS version...not so much.

Amo este juego, lo pase como 1000 veces ya, jajaj. ¿que? ¿es raro una chica que habla español en esta pagina?, bueno, no importa, a mi me gusta igual. Creo que es el mejor juego de Spyro hasta ahora, porque creo que se pasaron un poco con la apariencia de Spyro en la saga de Skylanders...acepto cualquier opinión. smilie

If Cynder wasn't in the story plotted games from "a new beginning" to "dawn" would be rubbish tbh. Cynder has basically the most character development in the entire games between "beginning" to "dawn". Cynder is personally one of the best characters in the franchise, without her most of it would suck.

Without Cynder it would be a terrible game

V Things that bug me is that the elements were a lot weaker. Except ice, poison and fear. and the boss was way too easy. I found elite bosses harder than malefor! apart from that though, it's my favourite out of the series. But i accept all opinions smilie

\/ The Wii Version did a weird glitch on me one time

I landed on a piece of debris that floats up past the arena and it cared me up to a point where i was stuck and couldn't descend, but malodor was still active below me and his shots could still reach me. if it wasn't for that I would've had to reset the game oh god.

I've heard bad things about the PS2 version. I do like the Wii version but to me it's the weakest in he trilogy for several reasons.
