Rated 6 out of 10 by Tardyjay Game..yes..movie..no
I have ot be honest...I haven't yet finihsed the game. I was quite excited about this game. Not only the 3-D visual aspect but the general story and game play. i mean look at who made the game. After playing this game for a good while I foudn that the 2 things that were dragging me a long were the story from the movie and the graphics. Believe it when I say the graphics for this game are, simply put, amazing. Too bad the game play doesn't match the graphics. Once again a game based off of a movie doesn't match. It comes close though I must say. To be more specific I have to say that the controls for the game are a bit sluggish when compared to the likes of say borderlands. When in a "vehicle", gameinformer was not laying when they said, "controls feel broken". The story isn't that involved, unless you've never played games before. This game is like putting God of War III graphics on Goldeneye gameplay. I love it yet I hate it so...
Rated 3 out of 10 by MysteryDude2 I bought it today, played 10 minutes, returning it
I bought James Cameron's Avatar on the PS3 today, I played it for about ten minutes, I'm returning it tomarrow. I thought this game was boring and lame. I liked the movie but not this game. First of all, the solo player mode is just a bunch of walking around doing nothing. The camera didn't work so you couldn't see when an enemy is coming up behind you. Also, you weren't the main character like in the movie. After that, the reason I bought this game was mostly because of the multiplayer. I thought it looked cool because it looked like Star wars battlefront II. It was nothing like it! I played Star wars battlefront II at my friend's house. First of all, you need wi fi to play multiplayer. I don't have wi fi. Next, I don't think the game is split-screen so to people can't play this game in the same living room. In fact, I'm so tired of talking about it, I'm only going to say one more thing: Don't buy this game!
Rated 10 out of 10 by DieHard Amazing.
This game has amazing graphics. At night everything in the game glows just like in the movie. Although it's not based on the movie it's a great game. But if your looking for a game with alot of gore then this isn't your game. I played for hours and hours. I beat the game in 22 hours on my first try as a Avatar. I love the option of playing for the RDA or as a Avatar. With RDA you get more gun options, better armor, and vehicles. As an Avatar you don't get as much but you do get to ride many of the animals you see in the movie. I'll tell you how the game goes. You start out with the RDA as a human but getting to play with the Avatar a little too. Soon you get to decide who to play for and then your in a small battle. Depending on the team you choose your sent out to complete tasks. The object of the game is to collect multiple obtainium shards and place them on the ground around certain trees to get harmonics. The harmonics lead you the Well of Souls. If your playing with the RDA you have to kill one of the main Avatar characters before winning. I'm hooked on this game. It's HIGHLY recomended.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Alien Queen 124 Almost my fav game
Avatar was a very good gmae but had its ups and downs.The greatest feature in the game is the graphics, I mean they are so colorful and leave your mouth wide open.The story is good even if you haven't seen the movie like me, but is easy to understand.It is a very long game in my opinion and is a must have for movie game and shooter fans.It is challenging only at boss battles, other wise it is fairly easy.The controls do not take long to learn.The thing I really enjoy is that everything you shoot pretty much has a reaction.It let's you choose to be a human or the Na'vi and each has a different combat system.The combat itself is very entertaining and will keep you busy for a long while.The online is great as well.I suggest this game to people who enjoy shooters and games that you might want to try out.The game is awesome and I think that you would make a great choice buying this.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Avatar_Fan-1 Almost Better than COD: MW2
This gam eis simply, AMAZING. I would like to recommend it to everyone if I could. The problem I had was with the Banshee. The controlls for it got a little mest up, but I still love it. I think people that loved the movie, will love the game. The sound and graphics for the game were....out of this world and literally, out of this world. The length of the game is so long..probably one of the longest games I've played. The storyling does not follow the movie precisely, but they come very very close. The game, for me, was very challenging. Well, the only part you really won't like is the controlls for the Banshee, if they mess up for you. If they don't, then I'm sure you'll love this game. I...............LOVE...............THIS....................GAME!!! buy it an dplace it, you'll love it too.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Pengu97 The Reviews are all Lies!
I am very suprised at the reviews that this game recived from critics. They said that the game was mediocore. I'm telling you this is a great game. Believe me. I havn't finished one half of the game, and it is amazing. Story line: You are a new recruit for the RDA. After a few missions you get to choose wether to join the Na'Vi, or stay as an RDA agent. Each story has good length. It's taken me 8 hour to almost get half way through the Na'Vi story mode. Length: As I just said, the game is long, so I won't write another paragraph about that. I'll just say, it's long. Controls: Controls are very simple. The reason I gave controls a 9/10 is that occasionally the Banshee controls (the dragon things the Na'Vi ride) get screwed up. Mostly they're fine. The other stuff is really easy to ride, especially the Dire horse. Graphics: One word: AMAZING! They are indepth and, if you have a TV that has a 3-D setting, you can play in 3-D. Challenge: The game has nice challenge to it. What help is that you can revive youself, so it's not impossible. If there was an Online catagory, this would get a 10/10. It's fun and there are 5 different game modes in multiple places. I recommend this game to all.
Rated 8 out of 10 by PlaguesOfToday Game Informer was Wrong... For Once
This game is a good. Not perfect but definitely worth more than a 6.5 *cough* *cough* Game Informer. In the beginning you get to choose a person you want to be. Then you begin playing. A few missions down the line you are given a choice, play as the humans or the Na'vi (The Avatars). Both sides give you fun gameplay. Also, there isn't any of those "run around and talk to people" missions. The missions usually have alot of running around to do though. When you are going around the jungle there's vehicles you can use and there is lots of creatures around so it isn't always boring going around the game. Creatures pop up everywhere and sometimes in the most inconvenient of times. The biggest downer to the game is once you play as the humans and Na'vi, playing again is just boring.
Rated 9 out of 10 by duckey12345 better than I expected
I thought that this was going to be a bad game, until I tried it out. It's so cool because it is not even based on the movie. I would say that generally, games based on movies suck. I think this is an acception. The controls are fairly decent, the storyline isn't terrible, and the graphics are pretty good. The only bad part about this game is that at times it can be very challenging(very challenging at that) and it gets frustrating. this game is more of an open mission game. It's a pretty big environment where you can choose what objectives you want to complete. I would recommend this game to anyone who liked the movie avatar (which is a great movie by the way), anyone who likes a good story in a game and doesn't mind if the game is not a shooter.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Rangornak A very Entertaining game
Unlike most games based off a movie, it does not follow the exact storyline of "Avatar" or the characters but takes the ideas and concepts of the movie to make a very nice game. The graphics and audio are very nice and give a good atmosphere of the mysterious planet. This game also has a 3-D option which I have never seen in a game before which is amazing when you enable it. The controls are excellent, easy to use, and give good functionality of your character and his avatar. Most of the game gives you options to make up your own storyline which makes it a lot more fun. The online isn't up there with "Uncharted" and "COD" but is still well designed and is configured. This game is very entertaining and I would definitely recommend buying it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by laxboygamer It's pretty good.
This game is pretty good for what you pay now instead of 60 dollars. The story line is pretty good once you get into it but when you start it's a little boring. you can choose RDA ( the one you want to pick ) and the Na'vi.
The difference between RDA and Na'vi is you get long range kick- @$$ weapons with the RDA while you get clubs and swords with the NA'vi That said the Na'vi has a bow and crossbow with LIMITED ammo that you have to make your self. Great game over all though.( if you choose RDA you get to fly around in helicopters and gunships ).
