    The Legend of Korra, judging it as a low-budget game, is quite satisfactory for both fans of beat' em up and TV series, but I cannot recommend it for the younger audience due to the highly demanding combat system.

    While the story campaign is woefully short and there are very few gameplay modes, the controls and locations are quite pleasant.

    The Legend of Korra is a good licensed game but not an amazing example of what Platinum Games can do in the beat'em up genre. At least the game has a nice combat system and some challenge in the highest difficulty level, and that's ok for just $15.

    The best fan experience for the series by far, but cut corners and poor design choices bog down an otherwise fun beat-em up.

    A solid core of action and an entertaining fight mechanics can't save the game from being mediocre.
  6. The Legend of Korra Game is a unfortunate game. Game has a big potential but we have to play a unfinished game. It’s a fun but buggy game. You will find Legend of Korra both pain and pleasure.

    Without Activision at the helm and its policy on licensed games – done too quickly and too cheap – it could have been an epic adventure. [01/2015, p.80]

    This game proves how "trustworthy" some game reviewing sites can be, yes, I am looking at you Gamespot and IGN who gave the game a 3 and a 4This game proves how "trustworthy" some game reviewing sites can be, yes, I am looking at you Gamespot and IGN who gave the game a 3 and a 4 respectively.

    Firstly, this is a budget game and costs 15$ and secondly, the game is pure fun. It has great combat and amazing moves to unlock, sure it can be difficult, but as well as rewarding. The graphics are nice and the story is there to be there. It is a beat em up game, it doesn't have to rely on story to be good.

    All in all, Legend of Korra is a great game and I felt super excited when I played it. The game deserves and 8/10 but I'm giving it a 10 to support future releases and to shut the mouth of this "awesome reviewers" out there.

    Although Korra is a unpolished game, the fun and challenging combat have made of my 15$ a great investment.

It is a classic fightingI love both shows to death, and this game did it's job of bringing out a little excitement in me for about 5 hours. It is a classic fighting game, where you get that rush of feeling like an all powerful being in the avatar state. That being said, it is rather short, some of the controls were a tad bit annoying (I couldn't get some combo's to work), and there wasn't a story basically. The show has the potential to be made into an AMAZING RPG, and this was not it, but it did what it set out to do, and is a fun little game with a surprising amount of challenge. Also pro bending is a little addicting. If it was fleshed out more, would make a fun little online game or something, but as it is, it's a little plain. They had the right voice actors, which evoked a bit of emotion in the handful of 10 second cut-scenes. I got it on sale for 3 something dollars and it is absolutely worth that, but I'd say don't buy above $5. Expand

    things i did liked:
    legend of korra is a very average and mixed game in my opinion. it's not an awful game. but not a good game too

    things i did liked:
    awesome cutscenes
    great combat. however felt repetitive.
    80% of the voice acting was great.
    controls are responsive.

    things i hated:
    graphics lacking many things. even that's supposed to be a cartooned game.
    the minigames are very dull.
    the story is kinda fine. but sometimes doesn't explained right.
    uninspired map design.
    very linear.
    item store is bad.

    the fact this game is at 15$ dollars. and that's fine by me. it can be fun. but overall. like i said. VERY average.

    The Legend of Korra is a catastrophic disappointment, an original adaptation of a license that gives for much more than this insipid,The Legend of Korra is a catastrophic disappointment, an original adaptation of a license that gives for much more than this insipid, repetitive, boring and (fortunately) short game.

    *STORY*: The plot of this original story takes place between the second and third season of the series, in which Korra is opposed by a "chi-blocker", Hundun, who strips Korra of her skills of bending and she must recover it.

    It's a very poor story because there is no story. Come on, we put a very bad villain who's bad because he likes to be bad and that's it.
    This is not the level of scriptwriting one expects from this license.

    *GAMEPLAY*: Boring and repetitive with functional combos, but shattered by a defense system that doesn't work.

    *GRAFICS*: The best thing about this game and also not something that stands out. Graphically acceptable and artistically repetitive, but acceptable due to its similarity to the original animation.

    *SOUND: The soundtrack is a joke and the sound effects are very repetitive and not very well worked.

    *INNOVATION*: The Legend of Korra destroys everything that animated series adaptations like Naruto or Dragon Ball have done correctly.
