I wish the controls were similar to the first 2.
When I play this and then one of those two and vise versa I always mix the controls up. xP
#10565 Purple n Spyro 17:05:27 21/05/2012
Yeah.. I didn't like the controls and storyline in DotD.

I don't think he's that bad either in Skylanders. Nothing to get all "SPYRO'S RUIIIIIIIIIIINED!!!!!! BAWWWW" about.

I play for the game too. His design isn't that bad in any of the games IMO but the gameplay is why I like it.. :l
#10562 spyroatwarfang 21:46:16 20/05/2012
i agree!
#10561 spyro_cynder88 16:08:01 20/05/2012
Just in my opinion he looks better in all of LoS then Skylanders, but I mostly play for the game.
