the game was great it followed the second season perfectly but i would have been better if you could play through twenty chapters like in the show they could have gone back to the few last chapters in the first season for levels or even done a few in the third

Really Bad

Pretty Disappointing, doesn't do Avatar justice

I wasn't expecting much when I rented this... THQ / Nickelodeon games tend to be pretty rushed / under developed. This game is really no different. If you're a big Avatar fan, I suggest you skip it as it will probably insult you.

The last review was really thorough and pretty much hit all the marks so I won't repeat them all, but biggest issue is that the game is buggy, laggy, the animation is of substandard quality for next-gen and half the 'cutscenes' lack lip syncing so it looks like a cheap Nintendo 64/early Playstation scene. We beat the game in only 2 sittings which is pretty disappointing.

I will say some positive things... it's nice to have a 2 player co-op game with cooperative puzzles... though the puzzles are rather simple and remedial. OK for younger players I suppose. And its great to have the original voice actors from the show.

This game is more or less a testament to the 'quantity over quality' doctrine that most game developers seem to live by these days.

Skip this one if you can.
