I saw this game at Gamestop the other day, but it was expensive and I couldn't get it.

Spyro's about 16 in this game, I believe.

@Kevin16 I think he is a teen in this game
#11351 Kevin16 11:08:02 17/10/2013
If he is almost adult why is spyro so small compared to ignitus?

@willspyro: I thought he looked badass in the Classic games, with a bit of cuteness added aswell.

@SkylandersGamer: I agree with you, but to me, it doesn't necessarily start off difficult, but when I get up to the Destroyer, this is where I feel the difficulty begins to increase from then on in.

I would definitely say though that if there was a top list of the most hardest games to play, this would be put into it, perhaps not at the very top, but somewhere towards the middle of my own personal list.

I have played some harder games, such as, Red Dead Revolver, Mafia 1, GTA IV, MediEvil 1. Just to name a few.
