James Cameron's Avatar: The Game
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.
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!
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...
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.
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.
its really worth 20 dolars
worth every penny... good graphics,also possible to play online.....................................
GREAT GREAT GREAT...but...
I love everything about this game. I couldn't get off of it! But one thing they left out...why is that if you play when it's day time, it stays the day time and there was only one time that I was on a level and it was dark??? I would have gave it a 10 if they included the days that turned into sunsets that turned into night on EVERY LEVEL!!! I ask this cuz my favorite part of the game is when it was dark and i only got to see it once. :~( ...Step it up! But please still buy it, it's a great game! :~)
One of the best Movie-Games.
James Camerons AVATAR: The Game is a solid game. Very loosely based on the movie, the campaign has a good mix of RPG/Open World and Linear gameplay, with the ability to unlock new weapons and armor, as well as skills. The Campaign is also split into two, well balanced and equally great storylines. The Na-vi and the RDA. The multiplayer is added almost as a side note, but is still playable.
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.
best online multieplayer ever!! :]
i think the games fun to play online. the story mode is a right but not the best. buy this game. :]
