    *** “It's solid and impressive so far. Gameloft put a lot of work into this game, pushing it past your typical movie license game. It shows that they care about what they're releasing, even for a phone game.” – Preview by Destructoid

    Regardless of whether or not you buy into the movie's unprecedented hype, this game is one all action fans must own.

    Aside from the occasional input lag, this is as engrossing a portable game can be outside of 3-D.

    The game weighs in at a hefty £5.99 on the old price scales, but for high production values and sheer amount of content on offer, the price is justified.

    Avatar is easily one of the best movie tie-in games on the App Store, but more than that it is a very good action game that I recommend to any gamer, whether they're looking forward to the movie or not.

    Vibrant graphics and bold ideas breathe fresh air into James Cameron Avatar, despite the stifling quirks of its combat system and controls.

    It's one of the better movie-tie-ins out there. But after watching the film twice, it just about keeps it's head above water in meeting my Na'vi needs.

    Despite some interesting game design ideas, an admirable longevity and brilliant graphics, this is unluckily just another shallow tie-in.
