WHY DID IT END HERE?
#1
Boy I have a lot to say about this game, but I will keep it to 10 things as best I can.

1.)  This was never meant to be two player.  It was an added gimmick to boost sales after the retailer switch.  I do like the inclusion of Cynder, but the A.I. doesn't work well with the flying.

2.) Warfang levels suck all the fun out of the rest of the game.  Lord of the Rings at all game.

3.) Voice cast, not the worst, but I won't lie I don't like Cynders or Sparx's Voice actors.  Elijah Wood is a fine choice for Spyro in this game far better here than the other two in my opinion, but I digress. I don't know about Mark Hamil as Malafore, I sort of fit, but not really.

4.) The collectables are either useless or Broken.  Armor is a cool idea and can give you some good rewards and litteraly break the game.  Unlimited use of Fury is a great time.

5.) Redesigns.  They are really good, except Hunter's,  Spyro and Sparx transferred well into the Legend series and it shine through with older looking characters, its some good stuff here.

6.)  Unlimited Flying, when it works its the best part of the game.  The Original series has yet to do this and I hope they perfect this in a later installment.

7.)  The OST is great.  Ok it's not Spyro 3 but its still good.  The burdlands has an excellent track so does Avalar.

8.) Combat,  YES this is what the last two needed, combat that didn't feel too repetitive and fluid (for the most part).

9.) Cynder's arsenal.  She feels faster(in combat) Than Spyro.  Her elements are different and new giving us something fresh and new to play with in this new era of Spyro games.  She was the best thing in this whole trilogy, (darkspyro close second)

10.)  I hate the ending.  Evey one does as far as I know.  Its cheesy, and unsatisfying.  Skylanders was all ready in development when this came out so they knew to end it here, SO WHY DO YOU MAKE US QUESTION IF THEY ARE STILL ALIVE WHEN YOU AREN"T CONTINUING THE STORY???!!!  sorry, I just want to like this game but that ending makes me sad that just when they fixed a lot of the problems the first two had they call it quits.

I love this trilogy, it's what got me into gaming and into Spyro in general.  But for it to go out like that just goes to show that it wasn't too late to change for the better, but it certainly was cut to soon

It definitely feels a bit disjointed and I agree with a lot of your points, but I actually really like the ending. When I was a kid and first played it, I thought Spyro and Cynder died and I spent a lot of time online (mainly on yahoo answers) trying to figure out if they really did or not. But after playing it again when I got older I realized very clearly that they lived. Chronicler says that each time a dragon dies, the book gets a new page, but he can't find one for Spyro. That means he survived.

My favorite version of this game is the DS version, which is also possibly my favorite game in general. It has a lot of nostalgic value for me and overall I think it is more consistent than the console versions.

Yeah but then the story producers of The Legend of Spyro revealed that Spyro and Cynder’s fates are left up to fan speculation. Their whereabouts are unknown, did we see their souls between the realms of the living and the dead?

Well, I'm a fan, and I choose to speculate that they lived, too. Staying on the topic of ending, to be consistent with the thread, I  liked 80% of it. Of the 20% that bothered me the most was I never felt Cynder saying "I love you" was earned. There just wasn't enough chemistry, I think, between them. Now granted, Spyro does care about her and she does recognize him for saving her in convexity AND coming to rescue her at the Well of Souls. But...ah. I love you. Mmmm. I mentioned this in another post, but it wasn't clear if it's a brother/ sister relationship or boyfriend/ girlfriend relationship and that is why it felt weird for me. Those are two different contexts. What do you think?

Also, I'd prefer the brother/sister relationship if they would have strengthened the idea of Spyro not having a family. That could warrent an I love you from someone you're about to die with.

Dawn of the Dragon was a dumpster fire in terms of story, It was rushed because of the change of developer. There's continuity errors, also the designs Spyro looks more pinkesh then purple, Cynder was a Black Dragon, not Violet.

I'm not doubting you, but that sounds very interesting. Do you have the source? I couldn't seem to find it.

I can't believe we're still invested in this years later. I'm happy about it, personally, that people still care about this. Again, I will say this series had so much potential and it hurts me that all the lore we have is just from the games and the rest we have to guess at on our own since the world wasn't fully developed. The mystery in the plot holes and how the world functions is part of why the games are fun because you do get to make the world your own by filling in the blanks, but concrete answers would be nice, too. That might also be why remaking the series would be a bad idea because people would want their interpretation to be on screen, though that might be true for anything. I dunno. I wish the world of these games were more developed. Why did it have to end here?!

The producers. Chris Wilson and Michael Graham, were planning on making more LOS games after the trilogy, but Activision had other plans which we now know it was Skylanders and eventually back to classic Spyro - Reignited.


Q: Will this be the last Spyro game or are there plans to make more after this finale?

MG: Without a doubt, there will be more Spyro games in the future. The entire purpose of the trilogy was to re-establish the characters and the world in a way that would allow for growth and expansion. We’ve only scratched the surface.
