The Legend of Korra is a very popular US television show that has been gaining a lot of attention since the series began. It is the follow up from the ever popular Avatar: The Last Air Bender anime series. Avatar was one of the most popular shows on television, and The Legend of Korra is turning out to be a great success as well. These two shows tell the story of “benders”, individuals who are able to use elements – water, air, fire and earth. These benders can really be a great source of power in battle.

The Legend of Korra video game is one that fans of the series would love. This game would also be a great game for fans of action role playing games. There are many features of this game that are very similar to popular franchises like Final Fantasy and The Legend of Zelda. This game is great for gamers who are looking to really become immersed in an adventure-based story.

The story of this game follows closely the story of the 2nd and 3rd season of the hit Nickelodeon television show. A chi-blocker strips Korra of her bending abilities and she is left to regaining all of these abilities. Hundun is the main antagonist in this video game. He is an ancient evil spirit who has been trapped in the spirit world. Korra opened a portal which he was able to come into this world and start terrorizing the world. The game focuses on stopping Hundun, while restoring Korra’s bending abilities.

The Legend of Korra is a third person game and is single player. There is no multi-player function to be found. All in all, this game takes about 4 or 5 hours to get through and beat for any normal gamer. This isn’t very much play time, but there are many different mini games that can allow individuals to get sidetracked.

These mini games are also in addition to all of the elemental bending that is available. These different types of bending gives players the ability to truly master the game instead of just playing it through quickly and button mash their way to the ending.

The graphics in The Legend of Korra are very beautiful and stay faithful to the artwork of the TV show as much as possible. It almost is if you are moving around that world with an animated character. The beautiful use of graphics make the bending of elements an exciting and beautiful sight to be seen. Overall, the graphics of this game are very beautiful. They are more cartoon styled than many other more realistic type games, but this is probably to the liking of die hard avatar fans.
