Uh oh. A video game based on a movie? This can't be good, right? The only thing worse than a video game based on a movie is a movie based on a video game. But wait a minute. We are talking about a James Cameron film here, the director of such...

I've probably made Avatar: The Game out to be worse than it is. The problem is I've seen Avatar, the movie, and I was profoundly moved by it. I figured the amazing team at Ubisoft Montreal would have been more than capable of doing the source material...

James Cameron's Avatar Review

 

James Cameron's Avatar has to be one of the most-hyped movies in recent memory, and in spite of good reviews, by now most of us are getting sick of the hubbub surrounding it. The film's overexposure hasn't done much to promote gamer enthusiasm for the...

Avatar is a game that for all its ambition, fails to actualize. While it deserves some credit for creating a storyline unique from that of the film, that credit is limited due to the game's automatic and largely unimaginative execution. Many of the...

In the later campaigns there is a little "drop-in" from time to time and throughout the game AI controlled Na'vi and RDA soldiers will appear from a long distance as featureless moving dolls. Then when you get closer the details will snap on. It was...

James Cameron's Avatar – The Video Game not only wins prizes for the world's longest – and most boring – video game name ever, but it also wins prizes for the longest developed movie tie-in. That's right folks, they've been hard at work on this game...

There is nothing overly wrong with the world and the gameplay mechanics (which are quite fun to start with) in Avatar, but there is no depth to it. It’s completely shallow and repeating the same mission type over, and over, and over, and over again for...

James Cameron's Avatar - Review

 

Like the film itself, Avatar boasts some impressive tech that takes a fair amount of investment to see in its full glory. On the film side, the movie company is footing most of the bill. Unfortunately, Ubisoft is not about to deliver a 120hz capable...

The voice-work is great if you can look past the American-Indian vibe of the Na'vi's broken English, which will do nothing to calm rumors of the film being a Dances With Wolves rip. Despite having a separate conductor from the film, the rousing score...

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...

You might just want to stay on your own planet.

Pretty environments; two moderately different styles of play; some interesting extras

Laughable story development; tedious fetch-quest structure; poor graphical performance

The incarnation of a great game or stuck in the body of a mediocre shooter?

The freedom to choose between two races ; The potential of multiplayer ; Getting a 3D headache

Gameplay is rather generic ; Combat isn't the most satisfying ; The balance of firepower is firmly in the RDA's favour

Avatar is of a far higher caliber than your usual movie tie-in and no doubt Cameron will deliver an epic cinema experience. Sadly, his universe isn't so unique to the videogame world.

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

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game (Xbox 360)

 

After more than a decade, trailers and television commercials have lifted the shroud of mystery from "Avatar," the long-brewing would-be opus from director James Cameron. The movie promises to bring audiences an amazing new vision. But the game based...
