  1. For the game's younger target audience there is a fun, easy going action-RPG and light-hearted storyline waiting to be discovered in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and one that lasts at least a good six to eight hours with plenty of optional side quests, mini-games and unlockable content.
  2. Older gamers will be able to figure their way around the harder boss battles if they are so inclined while the younger ones may get frustrated and move on.
  3. Avatar: The Last Airbender had the potential to be an enjoyable game for both children and adults but most of that potential went untapped, and the extremely repetitive and tedious gameplay isn't likely to appeal to either audience.

    Unlike the fun and entertaining television show, the game falls well short of greatness. As a straightforward beat-'em-up, the title seems to have the right formula, including solid control and a surprisingly intuitive character upgrade system.
  5. The bottom line is that diehard Avatar fans will probably be disappointed with the superficial storyline that lacks the charm of the original show, and newcomers will have trouble finding interest in the loosely tied-together missions.
  6. It's a prime example of the modern brand-endemic video game, focus-tested to death and then some. Whether you hold that against it or not is an individual decision. [Nov. 2006, p.83]
  7. As button-mashing dungeon hacks based on animated series go, Avatar: The Last Airbender is above average. [Dec. 2006, p.115]
  8. Sadly, Avatar: The Last Airbender falls into a trap that many games of its type do – it's already been done by another, more successful, less licensed title. If you liked "Diablo" or "D&D Heroes," Avatar has that special kind of gameplay you're sure to love, for as short as it lasts.
  9. If the developers took a little more time and fleshed out the game more it would have been so much better, especially since Aang can fly in the television show but can't in the game.
  10. This is a hardest type of game to review, where its substandard qualities are hidden inside the most mediocre and unremarkable package.

    It is a good game overall, although it has a few problems. The combat can be pretty repetitive and when it ends, it feels like a short experience. It does have mediocre difficulty and it has a story unseen in the television show it is based on. Full Review »
