Summary: Parents need to know that the story revolves around a Nickelodeon cartoon show. While familiarity with the show isn't essential, it will be difficult to follow the story without basic knowledge of the cartoon's premise. This game includes a lot of reading and moving from place to place and may not be a good fit for those with short attention spans. But slapstick antics and funny dialogue keep it fun for more than just the kids.
More kid-friendly -- and better -- than the Wii version.

Summary: Parents need to know that while this DS version of The Last Airbender has its fair share of fighting, it is far less chaotically violent than the film' s Wii game adaptation. It is, in fact, an entirely different game. This one puts a lot of focus on exploration and discovery and has more of a sense of humor. It is more appropriate for the younger fans of the original Avatar: The Last Airbender TV series.
Excerpt: Avatar: The Last Airbender - Into the Inferno covers the last chapter of Aang's adventure and the final confrontation with the massive Fire Nation. And, like the previous wave of Avatar games, it seems that the DS version fairs a bit better than its console brethren. Mind you, the game is far from perfect, but when compared to the PS2 and Wii versions with the same name, Into the Inferno 's DS release has many welcomed differences.
Summary: Nintendo’s Wii has gifted developers with a console unrestrained by traditional gamepads and the opportunity to take a new approach to their art. And as M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie revolves around the flamboyant spinning of elements into magical attacks, The Last Airbender is a perfect opportunity for imaginative coders to mimic the big screen action and make players feel totally immersed in the experience.
Excerpt: Inspiré cette fois-ci du film et non de la série animée éponyme, Le Dernier Maître de l'Air revient sur Wii sous la forme d'un nouveau jeu d'action/aventure. THQ semble vouloir presser sa franchise comme un citron, jusqu'à la dernière goutte. Mais sans un zeste de génie, le constat est amer.
