    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.
  2. Avatar on the PSP is a solid hack-and-slash that will likely appeal to fans of the show as well as anyone that has enjoyed similar games in the past.
  3. It's an average title that could have been a bit better with a multiplayer option and longer storyline, still, any fan of the show will probably enjoy it once they have gotten over the fact that Aang can't leap around and kick butt like he does on the cartoon.
  4. The hack-'n'-slash gameplay is fun, the graphics are serviceable, and the audio is fitting, if a bit sparse, but the artificial lengthening of the game can make it tedious, due to the incessant backtracking you'll have to do, and the lack of a map.
  5. The graphics are below average. The combat is monotonous. The storyline is uninspired.
  6. Avatar shows flashes of brilliance at first, but sadly those don't last long enough to sustain the entire game. [Jan. 2007, p.88]
  7. A mediocre action/adventure game that provides simple combat and a rudimentary skill advancement system.
  8. Even more bland and unappealing than its console cousin. If you're a psycho fan of the series, the PS2 version will probably sate you for a while, but I can't think of anyone that would actively enjoy the pared down experience of the PSP port.
  9. Die-hard fans of the show may enjoy this, but only on a home console.

    There is also no mention or reference to Toph as a teammate, which I found disapointing.

    Gameplay is ok, but gets stale quick, I was actually happy this game was over...Don't get suckered in by the name, it isn't worth the 5 to 10 hours of your time...

    Very good game with little skill needed.
