This game is awesome I just wish that they make more like this it will be cool ya' know I know a lot of people and I mean A LOT of people like skylanders but I think it will be awesome for the people who don't really like skylanders can buy and Spyro game just like this and all of the teen too but that's I'm saying
#11369 SkylandersGamer 18:53:42 04/12/2013
V same for me I had to cheat through Burned Lands
#11368 TorchSheep 20:52:31 30/11/2013
Dragon City was a massive pain in the arse, yeah.
Burned Lands was the hardest level for me.

This one is my favorite game out of them all. The Skylanders are kewlio and all, but they're just too...different. They created too many new characters and mostly left out Spyro and Cynder. I kinda think its a little stupid.

It's no problem! smilie

Okay, thanks. I was referring to the original series to the legend series. I was kind of hoping there would be a story, but oh well... Thanks for the information! smilie

If you mean from the Classics to the TLOS series then no because it was a complete reboot of the Spyro name. However if you're talking about the TLOS series itself then he aged considerably between The Eternal Night and Dawn of the Dragon. smilie

Is there a story behind how spyro became an adult, or did it just happen in A New Beginning?

The Xbox Link you posted is broken. Here is a fixed one:

Isn't it also a bit strange that these later games were for the PS2?

Off of my opinion, this is the best Spyro game.
#11357 StalkerSnake 13:13:10 31/10/2013
