I love Twilight falls and the Valley of Avalar.. smilie


I agree. So much.

I love Skylanders Spyro he's not half as bad as peopl claim him to be.
#10559 LevanJess 01:14:50 20/05/2012
He looks uglier in this game if you really care about design..
#10558 spyroatwarfang 20:33:13 19/05/2012
but he looks kinda ugly in skylanders! smilie

Spyro does look old and sorta strange, could be his neck that looks so weird. I wish Krome made this game, Spyro looked better in the first two LoS games.

#10555 spyro_cynder88 23:05:45 18/05/2012
I kinda like the name Dawn of the Dragon, but there was more than one dragon in the game...

Well opinions... are opinions so I can't argue with that!
#10553 Purple n Spyro 13:15:33 18/05/2012

I wish this game was made by Krome. And I wish it was called the Darkest Hour. I mean, waaaay better then Dawn of the Dragon. Plus their Krome designs were awesome!

I think she would have looked better in this game if she wasn't so skinny and had a more dragon looking mouth.

-No offense or anything-

1. Because she has a right to give her opinion, negative or positive

2. Cynder looks worse in this game, I mean, she's a twig, her legs are too big and sag, her bird beak looks stupid, etc.
#10548 MaleforSxC 16:39:18 17/05/2012
I totally disagree with you! She has some flat ugly nose with some miniture horns and looks like such a big baby in Ten! She looked best in ANB when she was corrupted but she looks kind of similar to that look in DotD and I really like that look!! Also! Yeah! Why do you post here if you don't like the game!
#10547 Purple n Spyro 13:02:15 17/05/2012
CYNDER is Only a Frankinstein of her former Self.

To me Cynder looks best in TEN. Youknow if I don't like the game why do I even post here? smilie
