The game launched today. Some of the early reviews have been pretty negative.
The combat looks surprisingly good, but everything else ... well, it looks like what I expected. The runner section looked really awful. At least this one isn't a $60 retail product.
They complain about the lack of story, and then nitpick the gameplay like crazy. The game is FUN. It's a very solid action brawler. It's very simple, maybe overtly so, but it's not buggy and it's not unfair, and platinum REALLY managed to get the bending from the show almost perfectly. The story is bare bones, but a lot of the tropes from the first two season of Korra are there and they're done fine. The villains pretty pathetic, and while i would have LIKED a more engrossing story it's not a deal breaker.
I think destructoid's review was a lot more accurate than gamespot's or IGN's. It's a 7/10 game. It's fun, it's a nice diversion, but that's it.
