Is It Any Good?

The Wii adaptation of The Last Airbender is a good game; the DS adaptation is a great one. Not only is it more age-appropriate for fans of the Nickelodeon cartoon series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, but it's a more interesting game. It's got far better storytelling, a neat sense of humor that's missing from the console version, and an open-endedness that encourages exploration in between battles. The controls work marvelously, and graphics, while less realistic than those of the Wii game, are brighter and cheerier.
