You play as Aang, Toph, Katara, Zuko, and Sokka, flying to distant Isles on Aang's Bison, Appa. Appa is only used while selecting the destination in which you are wanting to go on the world map. There isn't a real fixed scenario you have to follow, to get to a next stage, you basically are able to select the Island where you want to go. You unlock Islands, side missions, and small fun activities as you eliminate the dreaded Fire Nation threw each Isle. There is a couple of stores which you can purchase new outfits, and weapons that will boost your fighting abilities. Interaction is real fun, all the motion is very fluent and fighting is very easily mastered. The puzzles you encounter, to get around obstacles, are fun an will keep you busy for hours.
Avatar The Last Airbender - Into the Inferno can be played with one or two players, you switch characters that perform other abilities to endeavor obstacles on the different islands. The best aspect is that you can play the entire game cooperatively with a buddy if you get tired of destroying the Fire Nation on your own.
Game interface is sorta like Lego's series games that keep you on one screen doing small activities or fighting off enemies. With awesome voice talents that are funny, amazing graphics, environments that are in brilliant depth, and with funny cut scenes, that really set you in this adventure of the Last Airbender.
Third time is no charm for "Avatar"

Lead Developer: We've got a five hour game that has to be stretched out. Any suggestions?
Assistant: Well, we could throw in long load screens and clunky bending controls.
Lead: That's not enough.
Assist: Well, we can put in really tough puzzles that aren't logical or rational at all so the players get stuck really easily. And we have the player battle massive numbers of basic fighters.
Lead: Good, that's what I'm looking for.
Avatar: Into the Inferno isn't all that bad; there's some ingenious puzzles, and fans of the show will like playing as their favorite characters.
But this game has several problems.
First, the stationary camera makes it hard to traverse the level. It can also get blocked by stationary items, making it hard for you to see what's going on screen.
Second, the bending controls are imprecise and clunky. Grabbing water or fire was incredibly difficult. Fighting off bad guys was better done by mashing the A button.
Third, some of the puzzles - namely in the Western Air temple - fail to follow any logic. In one puzzle the player has to do actions in a sequence, but the sequence you uncover is wrong - you'll have to try all possibilities in order to find the right sequence.
Fourth, the fights are boring. Bad guys just drop in from the sky in many, many waves. For some reason, the average fighter can block a flaming bolt with his bare hands. How's that possible?
Fifth, the load screens are very long and occur too often.
And the game's too short; I finished it in about five to six hours.
Only die hard fans of the show should get Avatar: Into the Inferno. The rest of us can skip this game.
