I love the graphics and music in this game. It really gives you a realistic look into what the dragon realms are like.
And I kinda liked the storyline.

Dawn of the Dragon in terms of gameplay is a little better than the previous two. But in terms of the story and design I think it's a little worse.

Dawn of the Dragon was amazing and fun! I have played it multiple time and is my second favorite Spyro game next to Year of the Dragon from the original series. ^w^

I loved this game, especially Spyro's new look. He actually looked like a dragon, instead of an overgrown, weak-chinned lizard. The graphics were breathtaking for a handheld game, and the gameplay was fantastic. I would recommend this game to anyone. I have the whole Legend of Spyro trilogy, and this is by far the best Spyro game I have ever seen. I don't count Skylanders; they made Spyro look completely retarded and all but removed him from the game.

This game is actually more of a love story then a giant adventure like the other two

Sly, you're acting ridiculous over a different Malefor.

Well.. It's easy with the tornado attack,
But I got to 200 with basic attacks before (it's really hard))
#11495 SuperSpyroFan 12:46:40 18/05/2015
I must admit, it must be quite satisfying to hit a combo.
#11494 spyrothe111 15:34:56 17/05/2015
I used Cynder's Tornado ability to get a 999 hit combo. smilie
