I like Hunter's old cool dude, care free, joking attitude! Now he is like, using old English, and is wearing a... tunic. (not that tunics are a bad thing, they are perfectly fine. I just don't think it is hunters style.) his design wasn't even the same! To be quite honest, (and this is only my opinion) I don't really like the legend series. To serious, to dark, the only spark of life and color is... Sparx! But that is only my opinion. Everyone has their own opinion. None are right, none are wrong.smilie

I love this game. I could play it over and over... until I finally get 100%. :l...
I had such a hard time finding that freaking mini-boss thing in the Catacombs... I hate things where you have to go back... so much EFFORT...

I hated how Hunter was serious and boring. :/
#10444 LevanJess 01:15:51 27/04/2012
His design looked nice, but he was far too serious. That made him a bit boring, in my opinion. But he isn't really bad.
#10443 spyro_cynder88 23:52:38 26/04/2012
I think Hunter was cool in this game, and he sorta looked like a lynx.
#10442 Hunter 4eva 22:14:56 26/04/2012
