There was also a fair bit of variety to the puzzles. Like the previous two games which were set in the and seasons, the game's setting is based upon the show's third and final season. There are some challenging puzzles, difficulty ranges a lot with the puzzles. Katara can Bend water to put out fires and can freeze it into a block by shaking the secondary controller Nunchuk on Nintendo Wii. I am really glad to see that someone somewhere has started a new trend - making actual, playable, enjoyable games that are fantastic independent of the show or movie they're based upon. Into the Inferno is an excellent example of this new trend. I have loved playing this with my daughter.
The main activity of the game is puzzle-solving using the various bending styles from the show - moving the characters through various areas to advance the plot. Ice can also be pulled out of waterfalls and ice pillars can be made. It really was a good time. It is tons of fun, and I really enjoy using the bending styles from the show. Came shrink wrapped so was very obvious it was indeed new.
For example: you are moving through caverns with Toph and Aang. With Toph you can gather rocks to get you over the first one, but there is nothing to climb onto to get over the second one. There are fun cut scenes between each level that advance the story, too. Sokka throws his boomerang when the B button is pressed. Toph can lift up earth and throw it, pull earth out of walls and lift it up to make pillars.
Each level has you solving puzzles to make your way to the end goal of the level, usually a prominent bad guy from the show. Actually I came here to buy one for myself - just thought I'd give my 2¢ first. I've read some reviews that say there are no collectibles in this game. Certain aspects seemed simplified for a younger audience, but some of the puzzles were a real challenge and I enjoyed them very much. I bought this for my daughter as a holiday present.
Excellent shipping and postage and the charges where also excellent. You come to a large rock in your path, and slightly beyond it another large rock. Very funny retelling of the story of book 3: Fire. Fire balls, rocks and water can all be picked up by holding the B button and are guided using the primary controller Wii Remote on Nintendo Wii provided there is a nearby source. Zuko can guide fire and burn things. To defeat the bad guy you need to figure out what the trick is - how to combine the abilities of the two characters at your disposal to achieve the effect that will beat down your opponent.
You only die by getting hit five times in close succession. Eventually you will face Ozai and use everything you have learned to defeat him. That's a good thing to me. There aren't a lot of hidden things, and not really any side quests, but I have played it through a few times and still haven't found all of the white lotus tiles! The design is very well done. Part of what made the game interesting is that as you go through the levels you have different pairings of characters, and you have to figure out how to use the different bending abilities + Sokka's boomerang together. Aang is unique, in that canonically he can bend all four elements, but only fights using Airbending. You will use Toph's earthbending to get onto the first and Aang's wind blast to blow both of them to the next rock.
. Besides, it saves at each major area of the levels so you don't have to play it for 30 min straight before it will save for you. As you move through the different levels of the game Aang gains new bending styles, like in the show, and you learn to use them in combination with your other abilities and characters. In this game you fight through the plot of the show, from the beginning of Book 3, episode 1 to Aang's final showdown with the Firelord. You will have played as all of the main characters by the end of the game. When I say puzzles I mean puzzles based on bending. The Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation 2 versions provide a completely different way to play.
It is a fun game. Runs smoothly for my sister and is Highly recommended as a product and the seller is also highly recommended on my part. . . .
