Avatar wasn't a COMPLETE disappointment. At least they got some of the fundamentals/bending moves right. Also too short.

Avatar: The Last Airbender for the Game Boy Advance is an action adventure featuring the characters and locations from Nickelodeon's popular cartoon show. You lead a party of three heroes through multiple portions of the Avatar world, using those characters' unique abilities to fight Fire Nation soldiers and work through puzzles that typically require some clever teamwork to solve. Even though the game's story isn't based on any specific episode of the show, fans will appreciate that the plot and dialogue hold true to the way key events and characters have been portrayed in the TV series. Meanwhile, the design borrows heavily from similar games--in particular, Nintendo's Legend of Zelda and Square-Enix's Sword of Mana--so while the game doesn't break any new ground, the combat and puzzles are generally satisfying.

Most enemies only require a few swats to vanquish.

In the world of Avatar, people known as benders have the ability to cast elemental magic. The world is split into four different nations, each based on the element the nation's inhabitants have mastery over: fire, water, earth, or air. For centuries, the four nations lived in peace. However, one day the Fire Nation began a campaign to conquer the other nations. According to legend, the only person that can stop the Fire Nation is the Avatar, the legendary bender that has the ability to control all four elements. The game, like the show, follows the travails of Aang, the last airbender and supposed Avatar, on his quest to awaken his powers and bring an end to the war. Since Aang hasn't quite mastered the other elements yet, he's constantly accompanied by a pair of friends, a fighter named Sokka and a waterbender named Katara, that lend a hand as needed. Together, the three set out to visit the different villages in the land to gradually push back the Fire Nation forces and get Aang the training he needs.
