James Cameron's Avatar: The Game

 

This blue-tinted poor man's Zelda has bad motion controls.

Nice graphics ; Interesting (if less than subtle) plot

Poor combat controls ; Archery mechanics aren't much fun ; Unresponsive controls ; Repetitive gameplay

Avatar's control issues and mediocre utilization of the Wii's unique features lessen the enjoyment it provides a great deal. It looks good, but it doesn't have the gameplay to match its visuals. In the end, Avatar is a long on style but short on...

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game Review

 

This tired and lifeless beat-em-up fails to capture the appeal and fun of its cinematic counterpart.

No matter how the movie turns out (we'll find out December 18th), it should be more enjoyable than this mess. Avatar: The Game doesn't succeed on any level, not in its weak gameplay and shoddy presentation. Chalk up another below-average piece of...

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...

Half-decent tie-in for James Cameron's blue movie

The forest world is lush and nicely realised ; Fun stealth-focused combat ; Overall a surprisingly decent movie tie-in

Heaps of ugly clipping ; Control frustrations hamper its stealthy nature ; Repetitive goals

Alas, in trying to make use of all the Wii’s control functions, including the balance board and MotionPlus, it’s just too complicated. When you’re using the bow, for example, you're holding down Z to focus on one enemy, the analogue stick to move the...

Set on the fantastical sci-fi planet of Pandora, James Cameron's Avatar: The Game is a third-person adventure with stealth and flying elements. A prequel to the movie, set two years earlier, Avatar: The Game follows its own original storyline. Humans have

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game review

 

We've all been here before. A highly-anticipated, big budget movie and the inevitable video game tie-in. And after that, the ensuing crappiness. Stop me if you're heard this one before. But with established developer Ubisoft helming this tie-in...

You get a glimpse of the Pandora before the movie ; Two separate game types

Poor graphics ; Uninspired/repetitive gameplay ; Terrible controls ; Low audio quality ; Frustrating camera ; Co-op is poorly planned

While the movie seems to be living up to its hype, Avatar for the Wii is doing anything but that. It's a classic case of the poor video game/movie tie-in that fails to execute on almost every level, which is unfortunate since the Xbox 360/PS3 Avatar...

James Cameron's Avatar The Game for Wii Review - In this pretty but basic third-person action game, in which you play a blue-skinned Na'vi hell bent on ridding the planet of Pandora of unwelcome Newcomers, waggling is both woeful and frustrating.

At times decent stealth

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game (2009)

 

While the developers of Avatar have been kind enough to produce a standard version that will run on any television, one glimpse of the three-dimensional edition and most gamers will happily ditch their flashy flatscreen for a funky new 3D TV.
