though I thought this game was good I thought it lacked character, they were all to serious, in the other games their would be a few jokes, but saying that I still want the legend series back as skylanders I wouldnt really call a spyro game
#10510 Hunter 4eva 03:39:15 10/05/2012
The legend series (in my opinion) seems a bit darker, if you knew want I'm saying. There's a lot more fighting, more love (ew) , and a lot scarier villain

#10505 LevanJess 02:10:21 08/05/2012
Actually the story did have quite a few plotholes in it.

Cynder getting her bracelets on when trapped in crystal?
Spyro and Cynder growing up when trapped in crystal?
Malefor not killing Spyro when he had the chance?
Cynder turning a different color?

#10504 cynder124 23:43:42 07/05/2012

#10503 Hunter 4eva 23:34:59 07/05/2012

Though the storyline has Terrible plot holes.
