Avatar: The last Airbender

Excerpt: Games that are based on cartoons are usually popular these days. Kids can control their heroes and take them on adventurous journeys wich they love. Therefore they will nag and whine to get what they want. Sounds like music to developers’ ears, but will the kids be asking for this game?
Excerpt: THQ really impressed me with Cars on so many different platforms. Avatar the last airbender has been hit and miss on different consoles. The Nintendo DS version of this game may be the best one. This follows the cartoon of the same name that relies on eastern themes.
Excerpt: I like Avatar the Last Airbender Into the Inferno. You may wonder why I start my review with that statement. Well, because there are so many things to not like about this Nintendo DS video game. The graphics are not that great, or inspired.
Excerpt: Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Burning Earth tells the story of Aang and his continuing quest to learn how to control the four elements and put a halt to the terrorizing war that the Fire Nation has brought upon the world.
Excerpt: Avatar: The Last Airbender simply looks, feels and sounds like the show. Graphics are done in a cel-shaded manner so as to effectively duplicate the visual style of the series, while the game's background music has a distinctive Asian flair that also stems from the Nickelodeon show.
Conclusion: In the end, the game just doesn’t work on the levels it should – it feels too sloppy and imprecise to work successfully as a children’s game, and certainly doesn’t have the cross-generational appeal that the television show itself has.

Conclusion: Avatar: The Last Airbender isn't so much a bad game as it is one that's disappointing because it fails to capitalize on its many interesting concepts. Even though it's geared toward kids, the game is so watered down that even they won't find it challenging.
Pros: Interesting mix of action and RPG elements, License doesn't feel tacked on, Simple, colorful cel-shaded graphics fit the game nicely., Interesting mix of action and RPG elements, License doesn't feel tacked on, Simple, colorful cel-shaded graphics fit the game nicely., Interesting mix of action a...
