why avatar the airbender was the worst game ever

For your listening pleasure

I'm a huge fan of the last airbernder show, I'm aware of all the awesome reviews. so my opinion should not really matter.
The game starts out like the show, you fing Aang trapped in an iceberg, then you frees aang from the iceberg, sounds similar. You then bring aang back to your village, you soon realise it's your destiny to travel with aang so he can learn water bending, you go to aang's air temple in which he lived with the monks, when he goes there he realises that his people were killed in a war with the fire nation, aang then thows a huge tantrum going into the avatar state, you then calm him down, sounds like the show doesn't it? So you all travel to the northern water tribe with him so he can learn water bending.
Zuko wants to prove to his father that he's worthy enough by capturing the avatar, oh and I'm really happy he discusses his scar, the scar is clearly there, and I think it's pretty crappy how they made the fire nation cel shaded, it makes them look funny compared to everyone else.
Who cares if you play as everyone from the show at diffrerent times, but you know? its SO awesome, because they all kick so much ass.
The blue spirit scene is exactly like the show, and I mean EXACT. When they get to the northern water tribe you meet princess yue, whom you can fall in love with, but after the general kills one of the fishes within the fountain that gave them energy from the moon to bend, princess yue then sacrifices herself to the life that the fish gave her when she was a baby, which is why her hair is snow white, just like in the show. Zuko faces the general, aang goes into the avatar state and stops the wave from destroying the water tribe.

That's it, what else do you want? Sure they left bumi out, and they left out sokka's silliness, and its a terrible shame. The animations were god awful, the voice acting was non existant, the effects were literally cardboard cutouts, and it follows the story about as well as the movie. Fight scenes were boring, the bending rpg minigame was a pain and useuless, and appa and momo looked like the demonic hauntings of my childhood.

Overall, I think this game is extremly terrible, I gotta give props to EA for destroying my childhood, can't wait for the sequel to get buried in the desert next to ET the game!

Thank you for reading everyone! I'll be posting more blogs daily!
