After how dark and tragic the events throughout the trilogy were, it made the ending all the more satisfying.

Did anyone else wish this game was in the style of the other two TLoS games? I just thought Spyro’s design was so cute and I loved Cynder’s too! I always wondered what it would’ve been like had Krome studios still be in charge of the project.

I want more Spyro games like this one , I enjoyed the combat , the diffrent elements that Spyro and Cynder used and the flying in this game. They Should do something similar for the PS4 or at least Remaster this game , and add a survival mode and arena battle modes with PVP.

I like that it is connected with TEN, not only because it's part of a trilogy but because it gives you an insight into the protagonist's life from the last game. Since Spyro and Cynder are now teenagers, It feels like you are growing up with them. IT being the tenth anniversary makes this game very special in my heart. :3
Tbh, a sequel nowadays would just take away the magic of DotD.

I love this game :3 x3

Am I the only one who thinks Spyro looks worse in this game than in Skylanders? I mean this game specifically, I love how he looks in the other Legend of Spyro's.

It was a very nice nostalgic feeling playing this game again on my PS3.
There were definitely some things that didn't make any sense (ie, story/design), but I truly enjoyed it nonetheless.
TLoS will always be my one of my favorite Spyro series. <3

I started playing this most recently (I've actually had it for a while but never knew how to work the controls but then my friend helped me) and it's already a really good game. Excited to complete it!

I miss this series i need to get back

A epic end to a brilliant story
Sure it has inconsistency
Sure it had dodgy camera
But the game itself
Was beautiful
The story was awesome
The visuals
The visuals!

I love this game... I used to play it endlessly then I stopped for a while and I'm playing it again and watching full house reruns again just like I did two years ago

The home console versions of this game are epic, or the PS3 version in my case. The DS version...not so much.
