The legend of Korra: The Game review | IGN

Dan Stapleton from IGN says: "I have no idea who The Legend of Korra: The Game is for. It’s definitely not for young fans of Korra, as the combat is too unforgiving, the boss battles too tedious, the economy ridiculously punishing, and the story too weak and lacking any of the show’s charm. It’s not for older people who enjoy a good action game, because next to contemporaries like Batman: Arkham City, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and even Platinum’s own Bayonetta 2, Korra looks terrible with its simple two-button combos and poor combat scenario design. I can’t recommend it to anyone."

Sucks you didn't like it.

I'm going to get it, I'm a fan of the show. Glad to know the combat isn't easy like the games you've mentioned.

IQUITN4G1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

Bayonetta isn't an easy game on harder difficulty settings. Unless you're referring to how easy it is to just speed through combat encounters without much knowledge of mechanics. Accessible in that sense yes I would agree but exceptionally dull too if played that way

Surprised to see this one score low though

mikeslemonade1678d ago

lol pathetic comments. If the game sucks, the game sucks. Just take it.

Spenok1678d ago

Yeah I'm disappointed as well. Though I shall reserve my judgement until I play it myself.

I am a fan and i beat it and love it

sanosukegtr1231677d ago

I don’t rely on reviews. I buy the game, try it and if it doesn’t fall in my favour i return it simple.

That's harsh and if you liked the series at all you would not have given it that rating.

KonsoruMasuta1678d ago

Liking the series doesn't matter too much when it comes down to licensed games. You can be a big fan of the show and still dislike the gameplay or story in a game based on it.

DragoonsScaleLegends1678d ago

I'm not saying it's like that for other games I'm saying for this one it is though.

fallacious1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

Would you have said the same thing for that plane wreck of a movie made my Shyamlanamadingdong? Just because it's based off of a source material, doesn't mean the adaptation will be good.

Neixus1678d ago

Say that about Shadow of Mordor.

Lots of people i know that aren't fans of Lotr really liked that game.

ScottyHoss1678d ago

That's the inverse effect of what he means. I know lots of people who loved that game because they're LOTR fans, and bought it because of that.

Rodney251678d ago

I actually am not to fond of LOTR and love the game.

Ezz20131678d ago

Never watched any LOTR movie nor played any of it games
and i just love Shadow of Mordor.

megajon1678d ago

It's probably better to not be a huge fan of the series if you're reviewing this game. That way you can grade the game based on it being a game and not a show.

Yaay4me1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

wasn't this game praised for being good only recently? Im confused.

Edit: IGN politics? is the game on xbox as well? if not, then the score makes perfect sense.

TheCagyDies1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

It's on Xbox 360/One/PS3/PS4/PC

Also a 3DS one, a turned based game, is coming down the road.

Theyellowflash301678d ago

The 3DS game launches next week I think

Palitera1678d ago

Just for fun, which politics are you referring to?

Yaay4me1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

the politics you would be able to notice only if you don't agree with them. People tend to believe what they want to believe. So if the website is biased in alignment with what they like, then they don't see it. Im going to guess you like xbox. so i don't blame you if you don't notice IGN's word games, psychological techniques, and what not. But its there. All you have to do is look at their video section and you will see a trend, even on the video section in their PS4 IGN application. IGN is the Fox News of gaming.

Palitera1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

^ Even when their biggest (and only?) "star" is absolutely pro-Sony? When their biggest dedicated "shows" are about Playstation platforms?

Take off the tin foil. You're just acting paranoid. Yes, they have more ADS for XBox platforms since a long time. Saying this alone puts them on an agenda pro-MS is simply childish.

KonsoruMasuta1678d ago

This was expected. This game had an extremely small budget and spent less than a year in development. You can tell Activision rushed PG in order to get this out quick.

Sadly, this is the fate of many licensed games. I wish PG had more to work with.
I'll still buy it, though.

thehobbyist1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

This review means nothing. IGN has been giving games people have been enjoying lately low scores. They gave Alien: Isolation a 6/10 but everyone I've talked to has nothing but good things to say about it. They also gave Call of Duty: Ghosts and Super Smash Bros for 3DS the same score of 8.8 Sorry but there's no way in a thousand years Ghost is as good as Smash Bros.
