This game has definite frustrations.
30 April 2009
Summary: My kids are huge Avatar fans, so were really excited to get the game. However, the game is difficult to move through, and the bending is tricky. The controls can't/won't "control" the game very well, so the frustrations end up making the kids end up giving up many times and just putting a different game in. Big disappointment for the Avatar fans in the house and the Mom who paid for it.
Summary: I was having a conversation with a friend of mine recently and mentioned that with the revolutionary gesture control possibilities with the Wii, it should be worth getting a Wii just for Avatar. Unfortunately, gestures from the show aren't really employed. Furthermore, I'm a fan of the show and the game doesn't follow anything that makes sense in the show's storyline whatsoever.
Summary: Avatar is an engaging TV show. The Avatar videogame is a generic RPG with Avatar characters and Wii remote support tacked on. Most disapointing is the magic system. A central aspect of the show is the magic system - earth/air/water/fire "benders" cast spells using martial-arts-like motions, and I was really looking forward to using the Wii remote to cast spells using the same kind of cool motions as the characters use, making different gestures to cast different spells.
