  1. Well crafted, but quite mediocre and repetitive gameplay. Hopefully the movie is a lot better than this, otherwise Cameron's knee-deep in sh.t.

    Simply a rather dull experience, which could be the worst thing you could say for any piece of entertainment. From my time with it, James Cameron's Avatar: The Video Game only furthers the point, rather than dispels it, that the movie-to-video game genre is as treacherous as the planet of Pandora itself.

    The basic gameplay of Avatar is so fundamentally flawed that even those few bright spots would only set you up for disappointment. Because, despite the guiding hand of Cameron, Avatar is ultimately just another big-name movie game that doesn't fulfill its early promise.
  4. Avatar: The Game is ambitious enough, but ambition alone doesn’t make a good game, something James Cameron doesn’t seem to realize. With wonky gameplay mechanics, a boring story and an overall lack of polish, this game is just another film crossover gone wrong.
  5. The trailers may make the film look like a live action Halo but the game plays nowhere near as well.
  6. James Cameron's Avatar: The Game shows that you can spend too much money on looks, and not enough on story, controls or gameplay. All the parts are there, but they're not just connected in a coherent fashion.

    Don't let the "critics" judge this game for you. Judge for yourself. Avatar has wonderful graphic. The world never feels the same. The Don't let the "critics" judge this game for you. Judge for yourself. Avatar has wonderful graphic. The world never feels the same. The game play is enjoyable and different, depending on which side you are playing. You can play as a soldier or one of the natives. I have two saves going, one of each. Lots of replayability. If your looking for something different, with a pretty good story, give this game at least a rent, it"s worth it. Full Review »

The game had great potential, but you always know what's gonna happen with Ubisoft. I expected this game to be a freeroam RPG game with many quests, gear and enemies, but no, I was disappointed. You should just rent this game or try at friend's. You really can't give a score on this game. You either like it or not. Full Review »
