Avatar: The Last Airbender review

Avatar has all the elements you'd expect - Earth, Air, Fire, Water and totally average gameplay


  • Cool level up system
  • Four playable characters
  • Lots of melee action


  • No multiplayer
  • Battles get repetitive
  • Lacks charm of TV show

Avatar: The Last Airbender, an anime-styled cartoon on Nickelodeon, has gained quite a respectable following for a show that was originally targeted at younger viewers.

In a mythical world of four quarrelling nations (Air, Earth, Water, and Fire), the Avatar named Aang is the only one who can bring peace and stability through harnessing all four elemental powers. The show combines an entertaining mix of humor, drama, and likable characters that has drawn in a wide demographic of viewers.

This action adventure title is based around the show's general premise (Water Nation = good, Fire Nation = bad). The plot takes you through the entire world of Avatar, battling evildoers and doing good deeds for those in need all along the way.

The storyline and numerous side missions were just interesting enough to keep us going through to the end, but overall the game lacks the humor and character development that makes the show so appealing.
