Do you suppose that DotD will have the same linear style as the last two TLoS games, where you can't roam or go back or anything? I sure hope not...

It has been officially stated that you can "backtrack" or revisit places you have vistited before.

I hpe this game's plot isn't linear; I hope it's full of twists and completely awesome and unexpected developments! Hmm...y'know, if the story turns out like i'm hoping, then this game will pretty much be a soap opera!

Love non linear games. That way I can make my own story when i'm stuck or tired progressing the story line. ' Now Ignitus watches as Spyro jumps off a cliff with a might beat of his wings....' Stuff like that.It would be neat if the gaurdians could be unlockable characters for a certain area (Not story line) for something a little extra.

Yeah and it wasnt very fun to play around in. It felt like you were always running down a runway or a very long hallway.

I don't care if it's linear. I'm not that fond of free roam, to be honest. If you can go back from the map to a random level to recover what you might have missed the first time, that's fine. If you can't that's fine too. But What I really want are extras. GOOD extras.

Yeah, Dark Spyro was a good start, but there are so many things they could add. Like a two player game you can unlock where you and another person could be the guardians instead of just Spyro and Cynder \0/ Different looks to Spyro, costumes you might say. Like young Spyro, Teenage Spyro, Adult Spyro, Dark Spyro etc...

It did. And we are lucky that it isn't linear look at how much work the developers put into the landscapes. They ARE beautiful.

Eh... I don't care much for this issue. There have been a handful of good games that are non-linear. >.>

I know but I do like linear gmaes so it is an improvement for me.

Both linear and non linear are good games if done correctly. Some storylines are best suited for one or the other. For instance I love Drakan where you can fly all over the place, for the story had exploration ingrained into it. But you get a linear game like Dragonrage with a good story and all it gives you is flying in a set area.

I'd also like to see side quest. There are tons of oppoutunities for this, especially if the areas are big.

Side quests are more of an RPG thing if you ask me. <.<;

Hopefully they will be on the large side so you have plenty of space to fly around in.

Hmm... That would be a good reason for them to be.
But what about a reason for them not to be large?
HIR Diamond Sparx Gems: 9016
#27 Posted: 20:34:08 24/05/2008
It looks like they'll either be wide... or tall. And that's from looking at concept art.

I know there are ten levels. I'm not sure about the size though, but the game is supposed to be bigger than the last two, so I hpoe they are big. I would love some additional tasks to be avaliable for completion in the new game, like in Ripto's Rage and Year of the Dragon.
