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.
For fans of the series, the four to six hour completion time coupled with good replay value will make the cheaper price tag worth a shot. For everyone else, though, this is a sometimes enjoyable but largely forgettable action romp.
The Legend of Korra is a great TV series that is ripe for a strong video game adaptation, and Platinum has laid the groundwork for an interesting combat experience. However, missteps in balancing, combat timing, and level design add up quickly, and even Korra’s sassy quips can’t pull the game back from the brink.
It is obvious Platinum Games know their Avatar/Korra universe, but the game feels too constricted by its own fictional setting to really let itself go a bit crazy. Combat works fine, but lacks depth, and the length of the game incredibly short.
This game was super nice for $15 dollars. Most of the ppl giving it sub par score are just being spoiled. Its a solid beat em up action adventure. Even has mini games. If it was a full AAA title it could have rivaled DMC based on what I've seen from this version. The graphics are fine, cell shaded, think naruto storm 4 . Lots of moves to learn and you can button mash but also have to have some skill to get through at times. Some variety in bosses. What else can you ask for? Its $15. Gamers have just gotten to the point where they want everything to blow their minds. Well the only reason games of the past did was because you hadn't seen the concept before duh. Get this game if you wanna have some good quality fun for cheap.
Sure its has many flaws but I had hell of a time with this game, gameplay was very enjoyable and true to the series and I found myself going back to this game just to grind mindlesly quite a few times and lookimg for simillar ones to play after.
Bear in mind that I got it for really cheap (its not worth anything over 20$) I'm a fan of the series and had no expectations (or negative ones since they always screw up these type of games) and I am actually surprised on the negative reviews it has gotten. Its trully fun game to play. Ive had recomended games with great reviews being much worse that this
Si bien es cierto que esta producción no esta al nivel de lo que platinum nos suele dar, se le nota su espíritu además de ser un titulo que pese a sus grandes carencias es extremadamente divertido, lo recomiendo tanto a los fans de platinum como a los fans de korra.
The game is a poor approach to making Korra game, it feels clunky, stiff and rigid. Controls are pretty hard and there's no real strategy to it other than smashing two buttons. Difficulty level is ridiculously uneven: on normal the first mission is undoable, on casual level it's stupidly easy. Game is heavily scripted, feels like a bunch of Flash games stitched together, there's some fighting, clunky platforming, endless runner and stuff like that. Doesn't feel polished, more like a quick and dirty cash grab. Story is simple, and I really like custom made animated scenes, but game voicing is ridiculous and... well... stupid at least, Korra's comments are out of place and just sound weird. It's a game that you *might* want to get when it's 10€ or less to be honest, definitely not worth 15€.
the game has its good points, being the bending looks cool and it somewhat kinda follows the story, or makes an attempt to nod at it. but god damn is it hard. it's too hard, even in casual, to beat some fights without retrying 100 times. it's ok but.. i wish they had put more time and obviously money into it.
