Avatar: The Last Airbender—The Burning Earth (in Europe known as Avatar: The Legend of Aang—The Burning Earth) is a video game for Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, and based on the animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was one of the last games released for the Game Boy Advance in North America. The game was followed by a sequel, Avatar: Into the Inferno, around a year later.

The Xbox 360 version of the game is notorious among 360 gamers as the easiest game to earn 1000/1000 achievement points, which can be done in less than a minute.[6]

Synopsis[change | change source]

The game is the sequel of Avatar: The Last Airbender series, which is about the war the Fire Nation started. As the Avatar, Aang has to master all four elements and stop the Fire Nation from destroying the Earth Kingdom, just as they did with the Air Nomads. Experience for first time in the Avatar games the bending of all four elements, playing as Aang, Sokka, Katara, Toph, Zuko, Iroh, Jet and even Appa and Momo. The game is based on the second season of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Features[change | change source]

Unlike Avatar: The Last Airbender, Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Burning Earth features a multiplayer mode. In each stage, two characters can explore the area. Animal allies, Momo and Appa, appear in special "dramatic air battles." Players can also use all four bending styles[Notes 1]. Another feature is Aang's ability to go into the Avatar State and unleash its power on enemies.

Xbox 360 Achievements controversy[change | change source]

The Xbox 360 version of the game is derided as the easiest game to earn all achievements and Gamerscore among all titles released for the platform. The game features just five achievements, and all 1000 Gamerscore can be easily earned in just 59 seconds in the first level of the game.[6] The publisher of the game was interviewed by MTV.com game blogger Tracey John, regarding the easiness of the achievements, and stated that they were simply created with kids in mind.[7][8]

Laura Massey referred to the controversy while watching a trailer during Microsoft's Kinect reveal at E3 in 2010.
