  1. It's a solid platforming adventure that does not involve much depth, but definitely gives fans of the series, as well as the younger sect, a game they can enjoy.
  2. If you played last year's "Avatar: The Last Airbender", you'll know pretty much what to expect from this sequel, although this time around the game looks cleaner, offers new combos, and has a larger list of characters, including Appa, Jet, Toph, Zuko, and Uncle Iroh. [Holiday 2007, p.82]
  3. For a licensed game, Avatar: The Last Airbender — The Burning Earth turned out to be a pleasant surprise. While it is ultimately bound by some of its limitations, THQ's development team deserves some praise for at least doing a solid job on the product — other than the ludicrous decision that led to the game's achievements listing.
  4. Button-mashing is strictly generic and offers nothing new for next-gen gamers. The attempts at quick-time events fall flat.
  5. Sporting unintelligible artificial intelligence, a psychotic camera, redundant combat and visuals that look like a high-res version of an early PS2 game, Avatar turns out to be a disappointment.
  6. Avatar is poorly adapted into a poor game with poor visuals. [Jan 2008, p.82]
  7. Rubbish, boring combat. [Issue 27, p.99]

    Avatar: The Last Airbender is an amazing achievement and one of the best games I have ever played. The Puzzles are challenging and diverse and the game has almost zero bugs. The one part of this game that impressed me the most though was the achievements. Avatar has some of the most challenging and distinct achievements I have ever seen in a game. I highly recommend this game to any one who has an Xbox 360. Expand

    It was pretty fun for a kids brawler. I think has so much more potential if it wasn't aimed at kids

    It's an ok game, worth a rental if you want to add 1000 gamerscore to your profile in about 2 minutes.

    I have one word for this game, why? The puzzles are flat and repetitive, there are alot of bugs and it fails to spark any interest. There have been alot of lazy design decisions too. As you walk around towns character models have a tiny selection of only 2 or three people and they all seem to stand bolt upright and completely still and say the same 3 lines over and over and over again. Generic enemies that you will get bored of fighting very quickly. The only redeeming features are the nice title screen and the boss battles are good. Thats where it ends unfortunately. I suppose you could say that it is good for kids but i'd try and convince them to get something better before conforming to this rubbish. Oh and the instant 1000 points gamerscore? If you are desperate to waste you time on that just rent it. To sum up an epic waste of time that made me feel like i'd played a liscensed title like this a thousand times before. Expand
