The Legend of Korra: A New Era Begins (PS3 Video Game Review) #HolidayGiftGuide

We had a chance to review, The Legend of Korra: A New Era Begins on PS3. I'm a big gamer. I love playing video games that are both simulation and RPG, so this was a great fit for me. A little too advanced for my little ones, I played this game by myself and enjoyed it very much.

Although my nine year old daughter does watch the show, she found this game a bit hard to play, but she did enjoy watching mom kick some butt in it. The game is based off of the hit animated television series.

In the beginning of the game we see that Korra is stripped of her binding abilities and throughout the game has to get them back by practice and discipline all while unlocking new combos. The game's main villain, Hundun, is released into the physical world by Korra's opening of the spirit portals. Throughout the game we see how much chaos he brings in the world to pursue his grudge against the Avatar.

This is a pretty well thought out game and you can tell that every piece of the story line from the video game was based on the show. The animated series is well represented and learning the combinations was very easy once I got the hang of the game. It took a few weeks for me to play considering I could only play about a half hour to an hour a few days a week, if that, with little ones running around, but this would easily take a teen around 6 to 8 hours to complete, which isn't bad at all.

It's definitely not a hard game to figure out and once you unlock all four elements throughout the game, you'll notice how smooth the game play flows. What was pretty awesome about unlocking the elements was that you can level up each element by themselves. When you do this you unlock new combinations which make the fight scenes even more interesting. I loved that while doing your combinations, you didn't have to press lots of buttons on your controller and there are multiple styles of combat to choose from. They were pretty simple and easy to do. Even before getting back your bending powers in the game, Korra still kicks butt using martial art moves.

It's pretty neat because once you get the hang of the game, you feel like you're an expert in bending. Once you get all your elements back, you can change the elements at any time. Each element has other functions: earth for slow and strong attacks, fire is very quick, water is for longer ranges and air is more for bigger groups of enemies, which was one of my favorites to use when under attack. Every element is useful and fun to play.

After you complete the game for the first time you unlock pro-bending, which is just a mini challenging game. It's pretty fun and easy to play and I enjoyed it. This game is definitely a great game for any fans of the show. Even though my daughter didn't play it, because she watched the show, it was very easy for her to follow along throughout me playing the game.

The Legend of Korra would make a great gift for any fans of the show and is now available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. For more information about this game be sure to head over to
