Faced with something as epic as a PLATINUM GAME, and people still gripe and not find some happy. Heck some are even worrying this might save Korra. I mean that's a given being a Platinum game but really why be so hard against it.

>Moves in the game are split into four different groups to correspond with the four different elements Korra can bend. By pressing the shoulder buttons, you can switch between the elements and, consequently, the different movesets. These aren't just the same actions reskinned, either: each element has its own specialization. Ranged attacks are exclusive to Water, Earth has slow, close-quarters attacks, Fire focuses on fast melee combat, and Wind gives you a balanced, versatile set of moves.

>Each set has several different attacks, split between light and heavy strikes. Holding down either button will charge Korra and make her attacks even stronger. Different levels of charge are unlocked as the game progresses. The developer promises that the four different elemental sets allow for numerous different combos. Leveling up Korra will also unlock different light moves and collecting the game's currency lets you purchase heavy strikes and finishers.

>Platinum has made sure that attacks are as fluid as possible, which means you can switch between elements on the fly, even mid-combo. He showed us sequences where Korra would bounce an enemy in the air with an Earth attack, shoot him with long-range Water strikes, jump up and land a dozen punches on him in rapid succession with Fire moves, then blow the guy away with a Wind attack. Finally, he would land and use one of the element-specific finishing moves to kill the enemy for good.

>In addition to fluid offensive strikes, Platinum is also adding a counter system for players who wish to approach the game more defensively. If timed correctly, Korra can block and send long-range attacks back toward the enemy. Although this counter system works well, Kurooka said that the game is much more fun if the player takes advantage of Korra's offensive capabilities.

Prepare for this shit to spawn a series of games.

Sounds pretty awesome. Odd choice as to the water versus wind styles though. I would've thought it makes more sense to have them switched, especially since water is Korra's native element anyway.

I wish there was more bending that interacted and changed the environment (permanent rock walls to temporarily divide up enemies) or ways to blend bending (water and fire for a quick burst of steam like a ninja smoke bomb). I guess that's expecting too much for a $15 game, and the straightforward fighting does fit Korra.

It takes about 40 or 5 hours to get through the story.
But its really built for multiple playthroughs - considering the first *playthrough* is the tutorial.

The real meat of the game is the higher difficulties and trying to S rank (Platinum Medal) the combat scenes.
Plus there's Pro-Bending which is fun.

Just finished the story mode on Normal after putting it down a couple times during the week. It was hard to divvy my scant vidya time between this, Smash, and Hyrule Warriors lately. Took me 6 hours including the time I took to backtrack through chapters 2-5 after I completed chapter 5 so I can grab some extra spirit energy and level up my bending/combos. Felt good murking the enemies in the early levels that were a huge pain in the ass. The Triad Triple Team fights were still challenging with the unlocked powers.

Final Level and the Final Boss fight were fucking crazy for lack of a better term (without spoiling anything).

In short, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

I'm content with running through the Pro-Bending mode and beasting through story mode on Casual. Not going to touch Extreme Mode though. I know my limit.

Some because they are shit at this type of game others because they want to shit on Platinum to show they don't have a bias or something and then the whole "I expect better from Platinum" douchebags same kind of people that did a number on Pacific Rim because that wasn't the kinda film they thought Del Toro should be making.

Well now he's putting out the plans for a Pacific Rim show and two more movies. I hope Platinum can see past those whiners and do similar since they declared a love for the franchise.

I mean something that I just heard about in June and its out now not a year or two from now and it didn't cost $30+ and its a damn solid game with a pretty deep combo system. I think given time with the license they could make something fantastic and sprawling. I really hope they get the chance.

I've played a lot of tactical strategy games, and I can say pretty confidently that pretty much everything about the UI and gameplay idiom screams Fire Emblem, way more than it does "generic turn-based." It doesn't look like Final Fantasy Tactics or Disgaea or Super Robot Wars. It looks like Fire Emblem--and specifically the Fire Emblems since Path of Radiance, including Awakening.

None of the bending would fit very well. Firebenders are the ones that rely on the sun, so they would match the Ripple's "power of the sun" most closely. But most firebenders and lightningbenders output power through actual flames and lightning, while the Ripple is more of an ethereal energy that moves Vampire-killing sun-energy around.

Ripple can travel through water and be used to walk on water, so its also kind of like waterbending. But the Ripple can be stopped if a limb is completely frozen in ice.

Firebending is probably the best analogue, since both derive thier power from the sun and from proper breathing techniques, and the way they move the energy through their bodies is like what firebenders can do to produce lightning.

Overall their impression seems to be a lot more positive than I was expecting considering how Woolie's such a big fan of Platinum action games. A lot better than Totalbiscuit's review which was kind of middling.

Well it's a budget action title and they are familiar with the parts of the game that platinum does well and what they do not. So unlike others they aren't going in blind. Also their background in actual game development gives them an edge in understanding this titles development cycle.

Oh Liam, getting caught up on the Korra I see. Yet Woolie won't jump if its not confirmed.
