Avatar the Last Airbender The Burning Earth

 

 

SCORE: 72

 

Avatar the Last Airbender The Burning Earth  

 

The story of Aang the Avatar continues in Avatar the last Airbender The Burning Earth on the Gameboy Advance (GBA). Aang is continuing his training to master the four elements. This game is all about him learning the element of earth. The Fire Nation has become more oppressive, and taken over other areas. Aang has the opportunity to use the powers of the Avatar to destroy the Fire Nation army, but refuses. Partially because he is not sure if he can control the power, and learning the elements are more important.

The graphical element of Avatar the last Airbender The Burning Earth is about on par with the graphics from the previous GBA Avatar video game. There is one distinct difference though - Burning Earth has a lot less graphics. There are more playable characters, but less area to play. There are puzzles still but not the same as the previous game either.

The sounds in Avatar the last Airbender The Burning Earth are pretty cool. That has been carried forward from the previous game in a very respectful manner. As far as the WMG can tell this game stays true to the source cartoon material. THQ made sure the music continues the epic feel that the WMG appreciates.

Avatar the last Airbender The Burning Earth grades the player on each level. There are bonus points that can be collected. These bonus points drop by one every second. The faster a level is beaten the better score. This is the only incentive to replay Avatar the last Airbender The Burning Earth. The main game can be beaten in a couple of hours as well.

The biggest disappointment for the WMG was the gameplay. All of the controls work perfectly, however each level consisted of one of two characters who fight some easy enemies (then solve a puzzle or two). Rinse and repeat throughout the entire game. The solution to the puzzles are one of the special skills that one of the playable characters has. If the player is stuck they can just cycle through those skills until one of them works. Late in the game a few combinations of skills is needed. If the player gets stuck there are no hints to help.

There is very little of the eastern mysticism in this game. It is also nice to see the Avatar refusing to use his power to destroy one army over another. The WMG wanted a sequel, but one that was much longer, and had the same kind of puzzles as the last game. Hardcore Avatar fans may want to check this one out, but most others will wind up disappointed.
