    The Legend of Korra is rife with potential that sadly goes unexplored. While combat is satisfying and the animated series is visually well represented, it lacks the tactical depth to entice hardcore action gamers and the storytelling to truly satisfy fans of the show.

    It feels like a game they just have to do, quick and within a limited budget. Still, it is fun and once everything is unlocked the combat system get deeper than we though.

    The Legend of Korra is a game that has a clear understanding of the source material, but without the budget to really dig in and do that material justice.

    Not the usual great Platinum Games production, but if you’re a fan of the TV show or of action games you may find something interesting here.

    The Legend of Korra has its moments, but with terrible boss fights and an awful villain, it doesn't respect the qualities of the TV series.

    The Legend of Korra is a fun game, but could have been a lot better. It misses the complete point of the series and doesn't offer any depth. Aside from that the game is just simple, but entertaining.

    The worst game Platinum has ever made, and thanks to its sheer incompetence and banality almost the Bizarro World opposite of Bayonetta.

    I've seen a couple of reviews from critics bagging on this game, but so far I'm really enjoying it. I saw one review ask who this game is for?I've seen a couple of reviews from critics bagging on this game, but so far I'm really enjoying it. I saw one review ask who this game is for? Well it's for me. I'm the perfect demographic for this. I mean it’s not the longest game, but it's not a full AAA action game. It's a minor release from a smaller studio who make pretty fun action games and this definitely fits the bill.

    Gameplay: The bending is awesome and makes me feel powerful which is exactly what I wanted from an Avatar game. The combos are simple, but the complexity comes from mixing the different styles of bending which each have their own effects and feel, not from a million button combos.

    Story & Presentation: The story is okay, not amazing but it's serviceable and has a lot of nods to fans of the series. Plus the animated cut scenes help set the mood. The graphics are good, the levels themselves are a little bland, but the cell-shaded style fit the world perfectly. Now the bending animations themselves are gorgeous, and all the different bending styles have subtle visual cues. Also the music is great and matches the series.

    Overall: This game isn't breaking any new ground, but if you're a fan of the animated series you'll likely have a good time feeling like a bending master.

La dificultad es bastante buena, si no haces las cosas bien entonces la tendrás difícil.
    Es un 8 bien merecido, el único fallo que le encuentro es el guión, pero por el precio y la diversión es fácil ignorar ese detalle.

The controllers feel a bit wonky from time to time and there's odd camera screw ups I've run into There's still certainly some fun to be had here though. Expand
