I didn't think Dotd was all that great really. Then again I didn't really care for any of the Legend's games. They were just way to dark for my tastes. Though I did love Malefor, he quickly became one of my favorite characters of the series. He's up there with Spyro, Whirlwind, and Original Hunter. (My top favorite characters of the whole Spyro Universe)

I still remember that DotD has story plotholes due to the change in game developers and Sierra/Activision rushing the game.

No offense to Skylanders fans, but sierra should have continued making games for TLoS. Well, at least could have made one more game. I enjoyed playing this series and of course the originals Spyro games. Skylanders is good though. But this is better.

This is by far my favorite spyro game in the legend series. This game is awesome. I like being able to use Cynder. She seems stronger than Spyro with abilities.
