Avatar the Last Airbender

 

 

SCORE: 78

 

Avatar the Last Airbender  

 

Aang has such a cool name. The WMG’s research found that it means hello. So hello is the Avatar, and the last airbender in this cartoon series that has been turned into a video game franchise by THQ. This Gameboy Advance game is based loosely on the same story as the PSP, DS, and console versions. The main difference between the two is the Gameboy Advance (GBA) version is a lot shorter. A minor difference is how much this game relies on puzzles in the game play. As the screens on this page display the three characters use martial arts to dispatch the enemies. The game also allows a quick swapping between characters for fighting, and puzzles. The influence of eastern mysticism is barely touched upon in this version of the game.

The graphics in Avatar The Last Airbender are pretty decent for the Gameboy Advance. The characters all have a cartoony look, and feel to them. Most of the characters have a real cute look to them, even the bad guys. The graphics are generally pretty bright, and the game has a couple of different display in that regard. The details are decent, especially when the WMG takes into account this is the GBA after all. The artwork has a nice flavor to them. There is cartoon violence in this game as the enemies are whacked. Although not all of them, as the game makes the player think with how to defeat certain enemies (and violence is not the solution).

Avatar The Last Airbender on the GBA has some decent little sounds to it. The effects of the water bending are particular effective to the WMG. These sounds are almost always very crisp and clear. The music is okay, but rather forgettable - at least to the WMG. There were no profane sounds that the WMG found in this game.

It only took the WMG five hours to beat Avatar The Last Airbender. The game is straight forward, and a one shot as far as replay goes. Even though it was short, the puzzles make this game feel worth the money in the WMG’s ever so humble opinion. There are some secrets to be found in the game for those interested in looking for them. Only one player can play this game at time, but the game does allow multiple saves (three to be exact).

The controls are quick and responsive in Avatar The Last Airbender. The WMG did find a few spots with some lag, mainly when a really large machine is chasing the players. The design of the controls works great, especially in the swapping of characters. The design of the levels, especially the puzzle is super. The boss battles really made the WMG think, and that is a good thing. The WMG had a lot of fun playing this game.

Avatar The Last Airbender teaches the lesson of man over machines. The bad girl character is trying to replace the benders with machines. The player is trying to help her, even when they realize she is out to destroy them. Aang also learns that there are times he is the only one who can do things, and he must accept responsibility for that. The WMG would really like to see a sequel to this game with the same kind of puzzles, only about twice as long.
