I can't get past Malefor in his shield stage in the PS3 version x3 I'd get so close, but then I'd die x3

I'm sorry but... Overrated as hell. Once you go multiplayer you never go back. I seriously can't play it unless one friends is there.

This is the very first Spyro game I ever played

Never played the DS version, and I'm not particularly fond of the console version.

I love this game for the wii but the ds is really hard

I've played both 'A New Beginning' and 'The Eternal Night' all the way through. It's not that I don't understand the story, I do, it's just very poorly written, in my opinion of course.
