Forget you man!!! Twilight Falls is so dark and foreboding! I prefer Floating Islands to it! You are only right in saying that Valley of Avalar is the best! It is so peaceful!
#10469 SpyroinDraenor 16:12:22 29/04/2012
The best 2 levels are the Valley of Avalar and Twilight Falls. Valley of Avalar is the best though with the exception of the Shadow Apes!

Honestly, I thought this was ok for ps2. I hate Wii Spyro games, so I guess this was better.My favorite scene was in the Valley of Avatar, because the graphics were so pretty smilie.

Dodge all Golem attacks in Chamber of Retribution

but I don't know where the Chamber of Retribution is!!! Is it at the start where you first see the golem or where you kill the golem later on?
