Avatar the Last Airbender  

 

Avatar The Last Airbender on the Playstation Portable is an interesting game indeed. There are big differences between this hand held version, and the home console versions. The subject matter is still steeped in eastern mysticism, however it is toned down quite a bit. This game has more in common with the action role playing games of the game (X-men, Justice League, etc.). THQ only allows two characters in the team at any given time. At first this felt pretty lame, but after awhile the WMG got used to it. The Avatar is training so he can save the world one day from a comet (or some catastrophic event), that everyone knows is coming. The four elements of earth, wind, fire, and water are also present. The biggest surprise for the WMG was the humor this game includes. The WMG may have to check out this children television show (that airs on Nickelodean) one of these days.

The graphics in Avatar The Last Airbender are generally bright and colorful. There are some rather dark areas that the player has to get through, but thankfully they do not last too long. The animation on the characters is done really well. The details are all very cartoonish, but this game is based off a cartoon, so the WMG can accept that. The different chapters are all themed really well, and look like the areas they represent (like the small island the player is on in one chapter). There are some images of eastern mysticism, and a sage that transforms to/from a giant bear. Thankfully they are not used very often, but the WMG feels it is important to bring it to your attention. There are graphics of martial arts style fighting. Blocking is allowed, but rarely needed or used. The elemental powered attacks have some very nice special effects to them.

The sounds in Avatar The Last Airbender really showcase some pretty neat eastern style music. The sound effects of constantly hitting the bad guys actually does get a little old after awhile. Okay it does not take that long, and the constant whacking gets boring. These sounds are all crisp, and clear.

Avatar The Last Airbender is pretty much a one shot wonder when it comes to replay. There are plenty of side quests the player can do, but they only grant additional points that can be used to level up the special attacks. Only one person can play this game at a time.

The controls work really well on the PSP version of Avatar The Last Airbender. The design of these controls are placed in an easy to use manner. The level designs are way more simplistic on the hand held, but to be honest it works in this games favor. The WMG may surprise yous guys, but found this to be a fun game to play.

Aang (the Avatar) learns an important lesson about helping others, and taking responsibility for his role in the world. This is an awesome lesson to be taught. On the flip side he teaches players to use violence to make the world a better place. Helping out villagers in a lot of quests was a really cool part about this game. The man versus machine storyline also got the WMG thinking.
