I loved this game, especially Spyro's new look. He actually looked like a dragon, instead of an overgrown, weak-chinned lizard. The graphics were breathtaking for a handheld game, and the gameplay was fantastic. I would recommend this game to anyone. I have the whole Legend of Spyro trilogy, and this is by far the best Spyro game I have ever seen. I don't count Skylanders; they made Spyro look completely retarded and all but removed him from the game.

This game is actually more of a love story then a giant adventure like the other two

Well.. It's easy with the tornado attack,
But I got to 200 with basic attacks before (it's really hard))

I must admit, it must be quite satisfying to hit a combo.
#11494 spyrothe111 15:34:56 17/05/2015
I used Cynder's Tornado ability to get a 999 hit combo. smilie

V I'm usually not posting here, but who do you mean when you said useless character?
#11490 PMTgaming150 13:35:39 25/04/2015
Hey guys! Activision just said that some stupid witch smilie killed Malefore and smilie and smilie just put him to sleep this is a crime agianst the old games! I wanted to read these issues but then I find out they're trying to spread this garbage promoting one useless character that already has enough fans (IF there are any and sadly I know there are) Whoever writes the comic just made a huge mistake
#11489 XSpyrashX 00:55:40 18/04/2015

#11488 shadowstarcat 11:43:39 13/03/2015
