Excerpt: I have been interested in the The Last Airbender since I first saw a preview for it. So it was my personal pleasure to receive a reviewable unit of this game on the Nintendo DS from our fabulous friends over at THQ.
Summary: Parents need to know that the video game version of The Last Airbender tells the same story as that of the film is it based on, but from the perspective of that film's antagonist. It provides a nuanced portrait of Zuko, the main character, but he does not always act out of benevolent motives.
Excerpt: Anyone who either has any experience at all with Nickelodeon or has friends/relatives/neighbors that do will have heard of the show
Avatar: The Last Airbender
. Anyone who follows gaming will have heard of the cross-platform action/adventure game based on the show that has already been released on...
Summary: Games based on cartoons that are popular with kids, teens, and adults have often struggled under the weight of trying to appeal to each audience simultaneously. After all, it's not easy to make a game that a parent will enjoy as much as their child.
Pros: Interesting mix of action and RPG elements, License doesn't feel tacked on, Simple, colorful cel-shaded graphics fit the game nicely
Cons: Neither the RPG aspects, nor the fighting are fleshed out enough, No co-op play, Too many fetch quests and backtracking, Motion-sensing controls feel tacked on and make the game worse, For some reason, the Wii version is $10 bucks more
Conclusion: Spoiled children are annoying. Little ones who scream for candy and control the playground with an iron fist. Their behaviour usually doesn't affect anything bigger than family get togethers and visits to the mall, but if you happen to be the daughter of M.
Conclusion: Deadly Premonition ist ein Phänomen. Das Spiel ist dermaßen schlecht, dass es schon wieder gut ist. Es ist wie mit einem Autounfall, man kann einfach nicht wegsehen und wenn einen erst die Geschichte gepackt hat, die doch recht gruselig ist, ist man vollends gefangen.
Conclusion: Bortskämda barn är jobbiga. Små parvlar som skriker efter godis och styr sandlådan med järnhand. Deras beteende brukar i vanliga fall inte påverka mer än ICA-besök och släktfester. Men om man råkar vara dotter till regissören M. Night Shyamalan kan ens beteende få mer långtgående konsekvenser.
