  1. Experienced gamers aren't likely to find enough depth or challenge here to interest them for very long, and the lack of multiplayer in any capacity and the less-than-creative Wii-specific mechanics are disappointments. However, for the game's younger target audience, there is a fun, easy going action RPG and lighthearted storyline waiting to be discovered.
  2. Never becoming too complex, Avatar blends the right amount of kung-fu air-bending action along with story telling and adventuring.
  3. A solid introduction to the action RPG genre, especially if they enjoy the series. Older gamers may be bored of the somewhat repetitive fighting and the very light RPG elements, however.
  4. Avatar shows a lot of promise, but falls into a repetitive mash of the same thing over and over.
  5. If you like the show, you won't mind playing through the game to see what antics Aang and crew get themselves into in the game's original story. You'll just wish the game's shortcomings didn't get in the way.
  6. 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.
  7. The whole game is plodding and repetitive, and it doesn't have a single redeeming quality.

    I like the way that THQ made it so that it was a lot like the tv show.

    It was dissapointing at best. Lame graphics, fractures in the storyline, hard learning curve, and controls that make you want to throw the wiimote out the window. Expand
