A few fellow Limiters and myself were given the opportunity to test out this bad boy well before its release date. At the time, I must say that I was more than a little surprised by just how much action Ubisoft had managed to pack into a 20-minute demo

The bottom line is that there are plenty of other action titles that are more unique, more refined, and more enjoyable. Rent if you must.

Videogames made solely to coincide with the release of a major movie tend to be terrible -- rushed, lazy, and made with little to no care by studios who are just doing the bare minimum required t...

Set on the fantastical sci-fi planet of Pandora, James Cameron's Avatar: The Game is a third-person adventure with RPG-style character development, featuring predominant shooting and melee combat action. The game's story poses challenges to the player's m

This disappointing film tie-in transforms the magical into the mundane.

Branching story provides replay value ; Some nice-looking environments ; Melee kills are fun ; Conquest mode is a neat idea

Conquest mode is ultimately all but useless ; The story and characters stink ; The action gets tedious ; Absolutely awful vehicles

Editor's note: gameplay may vary depending on the game platform.

There's just really not enough here to warrant more than a cursory glance.

Pandora is a beautiful world with some nice environments and lighting effects. Some cool powers. Melee attacks as the Na'vi is fun. Good replay value as playing both Na'vi and Human campaigns essentially gives you two games in one

Bad voice actor for the lead role. frequent and long load times. Bad controls. Enemies aren't displayed on minimap. Enemies can be difficult to see as they blend with the environment. Driving vehicles is terrible (again, bad controls). Has a lot of...

Pretty average.

Does great movie = great game?

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game really needed to be better. But then again it does have the curse of “The Game” at the end of its title, so perhaps it was always destined to fail. While we can’t vouch for the 3D, apparently it’s fantastic. Perhaps...

Movie and franchise based games; we're in a climate where it almost feels like we're turning a corner and this ilk isn't guaranteed to be an absolute waste of our time. I mean, look at how Batman: Arkham Asylum turned out (granted, not based on a...

Do not play this game.

James Cameron's Avatar was conceived fifteen years ago, with the director describing the influences for the piece as “every single science fiction book [he] read as a kid”. Unfortunately the technology available at the time (1994) was not capable of...

It’s fair to say that here at D+PAD we’ve played a fair few movie tie-ins over the years and have grown to approach such titles with a certain degree of caution; with Avatar: The Game however, we were quietly hopeful that Ubisoft Montreal would deliver...

As gamers, we've reached the stage where we know what to expect from the games we buy. Back in the dawn of gaming, it was new and fresh and each game had merit - for its flaws and its as well as its strengths. Nowadays, however, the unfortunate truth...

For fans of the film, you'll appreciate revisiting the locales ; A choice between characters, while mostly aesthetic, does affect the story

Animations and graphics are poor and lacking ; Combat is boring and repetitive ; Just another rushed film cash-in, not worth the money
