  1. 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]
  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. 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.
  4. Boss battles can be incredibly frustrating at times, which contrasts sharply with the rest of the combat, and the overall tone of the game just doesn't quite match the same sort of cheery reverence that the original show offers. Again, it's not a bad game, it's just barely more than average, unfortunately.
  5. 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.
  6. While somewhat faithful to the cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender for the PS2 fails to capture the true essence of the show’s characters in a game that’s short and uninspiring.
  7. Its simplicity is its strength wehn you start playing, but quickly becomes a weakness due to lack of spark and variety. [Mar 2007, p.102]
