Nickelodeon’s The Legend Of Korra has arrived on consoles in a digital only release. I think this is a test to see how well the IP will do on a higher scale release. Well, ADG is here to give you a Short And Simple answer.
The story will take you on an Adventure with Korra looking to gain her bending powers. Some old man with the help of some henchman snatch her up after a night of Pro-Bending. They take her powers as the old man tells her and she has to use here basic wits and skills to escape. Then an adventure begins that will take you all the way to the South Pole.
Problems in The Legend Of Korra arrive when a lot of the enemies are repeated. You face the same enemies just went different powers over the course of the game. It’s a total waste of resources when you consider the world of Nickelodeon’s The Legend Of Korra and how far they could have went with variety, especially when Platinum Games are behind the development of this game. The other problem is there is basically one finish to every bender combo and that is also repetitive. You can unlock new combos but usually they end the same. Ohh Yeah!..and more counter variations would have helped too.
The Legend Of Korra can be a very fun game for fans of the series. It tells a pretty good story and has a very good presentation. All the original characters and voice overs are present. You get to ride Nāga in Temple Run style gameplay and even in a boss fight. The gameplay and combos feel good even though they are repetitive.
Short And Simple…
Good But Could Of Been Great!
