At the end of my tour on Pandora I walked away with a smile on my face. It isn’t often that I find myself engrossed with a movie tie-in title. The movie is a work of art and it is reflected in the game. The environments are lush and the music was well done. I really enjoyed the combat especially on the Na’vi side. The multiplayer was cool with its well designed levels and various modes. I also really enjoyed being able to play both factions each with their own story. James Cameron's Avatar: The Game retails for $60 at most retailers, and while I usually wouldn’t drop that kind of cash on a movie tie-in I would so for this one.

Avatar logra algo poco habitual: que un juego basado en una película no nos plante una mueca de disgusto. Es más, en realidad nos encontramos con un título interesante y muy competente en su planteamiento, ofreciendo una buena propuesta de acción en tercera persona que destaca por la atmósfera y su buen planteamiento. Sea como humano o como na’vi, su fórmula funciona, y lo hace bien, llevándonos –pese a su lento comienzo- por una aventura de acción que captura al jugador, convirtiendo a este videojuego en una buena opción tanto para quienes disfruten con el cine de Cameron como para quienes estén buscando un nuevo juego de acción que llevarse al mando.

Si te has quedado prendado del universo de Avatar, el videojuego te ayudará a expandir un poco su argumento y seguir disfrutando de él. No es la mejor propuesta del género de la acción y aventura en tercera persona, y si no estuviera inspirado en Avatar, su nota bajaría mucho, pero lo que ofrece cumple con las expectativas. Además, como os decíamos antes, ofrece el interés de terminar el juego en dos ocasiones (una con cada bando), opciones multijugador, y rejugabilidad en forma de pequeñas misiones y de un modo estratégico.

Even though there are quite a few negative reviews for this game, if you put the time into it, it may actually pay off. I suggest a rent before a buy and yes at times it feels like a buggy BETA but for fans of the movie, it actually works well as a movie game and once you have ironed out those fiddly controls and stopped falling from high ledges and worked out how the camera works, Avatar surprisingly works well. If only they spent a little more time ironing the bugs and this would have complimented the movie rather well.

Meine Meinung über Spiele zu Filmen ist inzwischen schlecht – zu viele lieblos zusammengestöpselte Titel gab es in den vergangenen Jahren. Doch Avatar ist für eine Filmumsetzung tatsächlich solide gelungen. Zwar sind die Quests auf Dauer ziemlich eintönig, da Sie immer wieder dieselben Aufgabenstellungen vorgesetzt bekommen, aber Ubisoft hat die Action ziemlich gut in Szene gesetzt. Die Grafik stimmt und fängt die Vorlage von James Cameron gut ein, der Sound passt auch, die Steuerung führt – abgesehen von den Flugszenen – nicht zu gebrochenen Fingern. Lediglich der Einstieg lässt den Spieler verdutzt vor dem Monitor sitzen. Anfangs bleiben einfach zu viele Fragen offen, die ich mir schneller geklärt gewünscht hätte, denn die banale Story kommt viel zu langsam in Fahrt.

Für eine Filmversoftung ist James Cameron‘s AVATAR: The Game wirklich gut gelungen. Vor allem die beiden vollkommen eigenständigen Handlungsstränge wussten uns zu überraschen. Das Gameplay selbst jedoch schafft den Sprung über die Durchschnittlichkeit nicht wirklich, lebt aber gut vom tollen Stil des Films und der hübschen Grafik. Wichtiger Tipp allerdings: Unbedingt, sofern für euch OK, die englische Version installieren. Hier sind die Sprecher um Welten besser und die Texte auch sinnvoll. Wer also nach dem Film mehr über die Welt erfahren will und auf hübsche Action-Titel steht, kann gerne zugreifen … muss aber nicht.

Avatar cumple con notable eficacia en su experiencia jugable, y ofrece una muy digna adaptación de película a videojuego. En estos tiempos encontrar decoro y ambición en un producto de este tipo es toda una sorpresa, y el título lo consigue con una campaña individual de planteamiento muy acertado y también gracias a un buen multijugador.

Really, you’d forgive a developer, limited by usual movie-studio pressures, if half these pieces didn’t make the final cut. In Avatar’s case, “it’s better and more thorough than you thought it would be” is a backhanded compliment that does a disservice to a fun third-person action game. Nitpicks are plenty, but so are the surprisingly fun aspects — whichever side of planetary strip-mining you fall on.

Xbox 360Atomic Gamer
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 missions feel like busywork, and seem inappropriate for a world in crisis. And while the combat system isn't bad, the character motivations--including your reasons for choosing a side in the conflict--are pretty thin, making for some abrupt and unbelievable developments. There is some fun to be had in this approximately 8 hour game (16 or more if you play through as both RDA and Na'vi and try out the multiplayer modes) but it just can't compete with the many excellent action games of recent memory. I recommend this one only for fans of the movie—and only after the price is cut in half.

Avatar a deux visages, à l'image du conflit qu'il met en scène. Le bébé d'Ubisoft peut être à la fois envoûtant et terriblement commun. De ses deux campagnes linéaires au déroulement convenu, on retiendra des fusillades intenses, calibrées pour un large public. La plus grande force du jeu réside cependant dans sa capacité à donner vie à un monde sublime et enchanteur, imposant et terriblement fragile. Certains joueurs n'en ressortiront pas indemnes, tandis que d'autres ne verront en Avatar qu'un shooter un petit peu trop bancal.

Clar un joc ce merită jucat. Chiar dacă una dintre campaniile jocului nu este chiar atât de spectaculoasă din punctul de vedere al poveștii, merită să îi dai o șansă. Foarte bine realizat din punct de vedere grafic, impresionant din punctul de vedere al informației prezente în enciclopedia ingame si un gameplay ce poate satisface pe mulți dintre voi sunt punctele forte ale acestui joc.

Endlich mal eine Filmumsetzung, die nicht in die Schublade üblicher Lizenzgurken gehört, sondern technisch gut gemacht ist, reichlich Action bietet und Spaß macht. Vor allem das abwechslungsreiche Leveldesign und die prächtige Grafik haben es mir angetan. Schade nur, dass hinter der Hochglanz-Präsentation ein derart seichtes Spiel steckt. Wäre mehr Aufwand in die Missionen und die KI geflossen, hätte Avatar das Zeug zum Hit gehabt. Kenner des Films und Fans unkomplizierter Ballereien werden aber trotzdem ihre Freude daran haben.

Given all else there has been released over the last few months and the control issues with the game, it is hard to fault the gamers. Aside from the ordinary modes, the biggest issue with the online play is the lack of a 'quick play all' mode, which would put you directly in an active game. Instead, the game forces you to choose one of the ten options and leaves you hoping that a game is currently running; which is an issue with the limited player base. If the insane amount of studio boasting in the television commercials is to be believed, James Cameron’s Avatar is the future of movies. Unfortunately the same statement is not true when it comes to the Xbox 360 game. Still there are plenty of shining moments in Avatar.

Avatar nails the presentation, offering a richly rendered world that continually stings the senses. Any developer planning to place its game in a jungle-like setting now has a new benchmark to aspire to. The weapons and gear, especially those of the Na’vi, are a blast to unleash on your enemies, and vehicles and creatures make travel speedy and fun. There’s also a lot of game here; in addition to a beefy solo campaign, brimming with non-critical content, there’s a multiplayer mode, although the servers weren’t up in time for our review. Ubisoft Montreal has crafted one of the better licensed efforts we’ve seen in a while, but a weak story, poor pacing and a few minor gameplay flaws keep Avatar from competing with the likes of far superior, recent third-person efforts such as Assassin’s Creed II and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game is easily one of the best movie licensed games I've ever played, but at the same time it's not good enough to stand alone as a must-own title. While the presentation is great and the combat generally enjoyable, the missions leave a lot to be desired - and there's little of the sense of wonder that the movie promises. Had the two campaigns been packed with superbly entertaining moments, the missions been more diverse in their structure, and the "vehicles" been more fun to man, then yes, Avatar the Game might have reached the heights its source material looks set to achieve. It's still a great effort, and will go a long way to right the wrongs of publishers down the years, but it seems that even James Cameron's involvement isn't enough to turn a movie into a triple-A video game.

Some camera problems and a somewhat predictable story throw up a few roadblocks. Still the game throws out a nice bit of eye candy, has enjoyable challenges and combat elements involving the more primitive Na’vi against the advanced weaponry of the humans. The movie tie-in will no doubt help the game.

While James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game bring any new gameplay elements to the table, it will certainly provide at least a few hours of entertainment for those of you really looking forward to the actual movie. Given the lengthier development time that this movie tie-in received, I’m surprised the gameplay and story aren’t a bit more polished, but there’s nothing horribly wrong with James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game. It’s a fairly run of the mill third-person shooter, with some less than enthralling multiplayer, and an impressive visual package. Hopefully the movie delivers more of a memorable experience.

To conclude; James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game is one of the better movie-to-game tie-ins. The amount of replayability and closeness to the film, outweigh the slight repetitiveness and short-lived online play to rate the title as a one to consider.

Sadly, Avatar fails to find its own identity, barely managing to keep up interest and landing just north of the boring line. On the bright side, compared to other movie videogame adaptations like Wanted: Weapons of Fate or X-Men Origins: Wolverine, James Cameron’s AVATAR: The Videogame isn’t too shabby.

Xbox 360Da Gameboyz
James Cameron’s new Avatar movie may revolutionize the movie industry with new 3D effects, but the game leaves a little bit to be desired. Unfortunately the game really has very little in the way of any evolution of the genre as it is a draw by numbers shooter which plays out fairly decently but brings nothing new to the table. It is too bad because there are a ton of the same type of games out there and Avatar will probably get buried somewhere in the middle.

Avatar ist ein Vorzeigespiel! Es präsentiert geradezu vorbildhaft, welche Lücke zwischen technischen Qualitäten und spielerischen Werten klaffen kann. Hier wird eine visuelle Glanzleistung unter solchen Mängeln geradezu begraben, die ein modernes Actionspiel nicht aufweisen darf. Das fängt bei der Technik an, die zwar idyllische Kulissen zum Leben erweckt - in der sich aber wie Zombies animierte Wesen aus der vorletzten Konsolengeneration tummeln. Es gibt ja gute Ideen: das lebendige Na'vi-Abenteuer z.B., das rundentaktische Minispiel, in dem man sich Vorteile für die Kampagne erarbeitet oder die zwei Handlungsstränge samt der verschiedenen Kampfstile ihrer Protagonisten. Doch warum macht Ubisoft daraus je nach Fraktion ein belangloses Run&Gun bzw. ein ähnlich monotones Run&Slay? Gerade die gut gedachten Rollenspiel-Elemente wirken so aufgesetzt, dass beim Erforschen der weitläufigen Areale trotz erwachtem Sammeltrieb Langeweile aufkommt.

Overall then Avatar is quite a disappointing game, where the movie promises to take things to a new level and be like nothing else before it, Avatar the game is just like most other movies turned game, disappointing. Sadly this game is not as inspiring as the film, nowhere near it.

Avatar: The Game feels like all of the development effort was put into building out the look of Pandora. In 3D, if your TV or monitor can handle it, the world comes to life. Even in standard HD or SD, the lush jungle is inviting and exciting. Take all of that away and you aren't left with much worth talking about. The gameplay feels like it needs more work. Loose controls, bad melee combat, weak mission design, and a wonky camera dull the experience. Middling storytelling doesn't help matters, and it ultimately fails in matters of motivation. The thrill of the fight just isn't here, and that's a problem for an action game.

Avatar ultimately falls down as a game. It's just not that interesting, compelling or fun. It is, however, a remarkable demonstration of stereoscopic 3D – and for a very small percentage of players out there, that'll be enough to content with the dim-witted approach to the missions and, bafflingly, the lack of an end boss. Still, assuming you want the richest possible Avatar experience, small touches like the Pandorapedia, which features a wealth of information on Pandora's flora, fauna and main characters, will make the rest of the experience easier to swallow.

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game doesn't pave any new horizons. Instead, it introduces a few new concepts while playing it safe in every other area. I loved the different sides of the story aspect of the game, it felt like getting two games in one, but because nearly everything else felt insipid, it didn't much influence the replayability of the game for me. Even though I am not amongst the rabid fans of the upcoming motion picture, I can say I hope this game is not an indicator of the caliber of the film, because if it is, moviegoers are in for a boring, bland experience.

Read all the unlockable notes in Avatar: The Game (they call it the Pandorapedia), and you’ll be up to speed on all the movie’s lore, lingo, and backstory. The downside, of course, is that after crawling through Pandora’s deadly jungles and culling its wildlife one bullet at a time, the movie may feel anticlimactic: Been there, killed that.

PlayStation 3PSX Extreme
In the end, Avatar: The Game isn’t anywhere near as good as the movie is hopefully going to be and for the most part, it ain’t worth a full $60. Sure, you can double your play time by going through with both races but it’s just not worth it. The controls aren’t tight enough – especially in regards to the vehicles – the camera is rarely on-point, the music isn’t prominent enough, the AI is iffy, and the overall fun factor dips frequently. On the other hand, there are plenty of pluses and I don’t like to frown on good ideas, even if they didn’t quite execute said ideas to the best of their ability. I guess it might be worth the price of admission if you end up really adoring the film, but with so many amazing titles available, I just can’t recommend it.

Xbox 360Multiplayer.it
I problemi di James Cameron's Avatar risiedono, al di là della tanto chiacchierata implementazione della tecnologia 3D, in una campagna dalla duplice faccia: se tra le file dell'RDA ci si diverte abbastanza grazie sopratutto alle sezioni a bordo di mezzi, mecha ed elicotteri, combattere con i Na'vi risulta un'esperienza molto meno appagante. Spesso eccessivamente facile e davvero troppo breve non si risolleva con le missioni secondarie o con una modalità multiplayer che non aggiungono niente di concreto all'economia generale del gioco. Anche la necessità di non svelare niente della trama dell'attesissimo film mortifica la narrazione e l'immersività nello splendido (quello sì) pianeta Pandora.

Avatar certainly avoids a lot of problems associated with being a movie tie-in. A relatively independent story, competent gameplay, and a relatively non-linear experience make for a game that is actually pretty fun. Some of the gameplay can get a little repetitive, however, and levelling up kind of loses its purpose when you can’t choose what you gain from it. Then there’s the lack of variety in the weaponry, and the too-similar humans and Na’vi. Overall, it’s certainly not a bad game, but leaves far too many things to be desired.

What Avatar the Game does get right is the presentation. The game looks stunning and is packaged with tidy menus and a non-obtrusive, clever GUI. Those playing it will feel like they really are exploring an alien world, with eerie floating landscapes in the horizon and monstrous shrubs that can rip you limb from limb amidst the mutant plant-life. Shooting stuff is fun as a human, and hooning around as an acrobatic Na'vi and clubbing stuff is even more enjoyable. But for all of the game’s eye-candy, it lacks any real substance and originality. Then again, I can’t help but feel this same sentence might just sum up the movie as well.

In the end however, these extra layers can’t fix the subpar combat and disappointing storyline at the game’s core, leaving Avatar a lackluster, though not entirely unpleasant, experience.

Sperimentando per diverse ore James Cameron’s Avatar: Il Gioco si viene inevitabilmente colti da un certo dispiacere nel vedere buone potenzialità e discrete risorse non sfruttate a dovere. La trama, benchè non priva di clichè, sarebbe potuta risultare estremamente accattivante se esplicitata in tonalità più mature ed incentrata sulla scoperta delle origini e delle tradizioni del popolo Na’Vi. Anche il gameplay, divertente ed abbastanza vario, avrebbe potuto essere decisamente convincente implementando un’intelligenza artificiale leggermente più varia o anche solo dando la possibilità al giocatore di selezionare il livello di difficoltà. Fortunatamente la buona varietà dell’azione, l’ampiezza dell’ambientazione ed anche il multiplayer, seppur abbastanza scontato, contribuiscono a rendere Avatar un prodotto abbastanza longevo e discretamente divertente, che si pone nella media degli action game, ideale in particolare per chi cercasse diverse ore di divertimento disimpegnato.

Riding the XP train to level-land might not be the future of shooters, at least not as far as Avatar goes. Somewhere, there's a decent game hiding camouflaged in the canopies. When dinging levels leaves you feeling blue, even a Navi eco-terrorist will run for greener pastures.

Avatar: The Game is er jammer genoeg niet in geslaagd de vloek van de 'movie tie-ins' te ontlopen. De gameplay is repetitief en voelt ongeïnspireerd aan, de besturing van de personages laat veel te wensen over en het verhaal mist een goede uitwerking. Op audiovisueel gebied ziet de game er zeker goed uit, maar knappe graphics alleen zijn nu eenmaal niet genoeg om een game interessant te maken. Avatar: The Game is dan ook een gemiste kans die misschien wel een bij momenten leuk tussendoortje kan bieden voor gamers die niet kunnen wachten op de film.

Avatar feels like a lost opportunity. While the jungle and background scenery of the Pandora world are lush and vibrant, it feels like most of the game's budget was put into this one aspect of the title. Immersive background scenery is important, but not at the expense of actual gameplay itself. Gameplay on the whole, is shallow and clichéd following tired old formulas that fail to bring anything new to the shooter table. While there were some interesting ideas in the game such as the dual campaign, the game ultimately falls short in bringing a new experience to players. While Avatar is one of the better movie tie-in titles to be released it still falls far short of what discerning gamers demand from triple A titles. For the five of you out there with a 3D TV set the game may be a must buy, for everyone else we suggest saving your money to see the movie two or three times.

I refuse to say this is another example of why movies don't make good games. Ubisoft did their best with the amount of time they had to work with Avatar. I can see how this game was heading towards greatness, but regretfully they just came up short. The effort was there, unlike other companies that buy movie properties, but the execution wasn't exact.

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game è un titolo legato a doppia mandata al colossal cinematografico, dal quale prende diversi spunti e funge da anticamera al complesso mondo di Pandora e alle sue interazioni. Per questo motivo visto in un contesto slegato a quello della pellicola il gioco non riesce a brillare di luce propria, limitato da qualità tecniche e ludiche non molto elevate, ma riuscirà probabilmente a divertire e coinvolgere i fan del film, alla ricerca di nuove avventure in questo universo.

Que penser d’Avatar ? Jeu à éviter ? Jeu incontournable ? Aucun des deux. Si on passe un excellent moment en solo malgré quelques défauts, le mode online est quant à lui des plus décevants à cause d’un manque d’équilibrage et de cartes, qui fait qu’on lutte plus pour être dans une équipe que pour jouer. Si vous aimez être emmené dans des paysages oniriques et si le manque d’originalité dans les missions ne vous rebute pas, Avatar est fait pour vous. Mais si vous aimez l’aventure variée et les passionnants affrontements multijoueurs d’anthologie, passez votre chemin. C’est cela Avatar : l’un ou l’autre.

An amazing visual experience, but not much else. The gameplay between factions is unbalanced, the game is littered with annoying little bugs, and the ending makes you wonder if your 13-hour trip was really necessary. It’s possible that playing it in 3D might’ve made a difference; I’ve seen it being played in 3D, and it is impressive. But until the hardware required to play in 3D becomes more affordable, that option is out of the reach of most gamers, myself included. So in Avatar you’re left with a shooter that’s all dressed up, but has nowhere to go.

With its inventive world and story, James Cameron’s Avatar could have been one of the few interesting licensed gaming projects in recent years, but instead we get an uninspired paint by numbers third person action game. If you see Avatar the movie and really want to take a trip back to Pandora, you can’t miss with the game adaptation, it has the movie’s visuals – it just doesn’t have the heart.

Of course, you will anyway. You can't possibly have already played Modern Warfare 2 and Borderlands and Assassin's Creed 2 and Uncharted 2 and Bayonetta and Left 4 Dead 2 and The Ballad of Gay Tony and ODST and and and, which makes the very idea of purchasing Avatar just now rampant silliness. The RDA campaign is an adequate action game, but it's never an inspiring, tell all your friends one. It does little to endorse Ubisoft's claim that it's been in development for years, as underneath the admittedly high-detail visuals it's a pretty rudimentary thing. It's a long way better than bilge like the Quantum of Solace, but it's certainly got no sense of a landmark pop-cultural moment, in the way we're repeatedly told the film will. At least, if the film is on a par with its game, we're all in for a terrible disappointment.

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game não consegue destacar-se, tanto em qualidade como originalidade, da restante oferta de jogos que é possível encontrar no mercado. Os seus graves problemas, aliados a uma jogabilidade pouco divertida, fazem com que o 3D seja o principal chamariz para quem quer experimentar esta tecnologia em alta definição no conforto da sala de estar.

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 justice. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be. In the end, Avatar: The Game joins a long list of misguided movie-turned-video games.

Donde pocas pegas podemos ponerle es en el apartado visual, sobre todo en el caso de que tengamos un sistema que soporte las 3D estereoscópicas. En caso de no tenerlo, ni siquiera este apartado consigue destacar en esta adaptación cinematográfica. Esperemos que el día 18 de diciembre, las sensaciones de la película de James Cameron mejoren el ‘frio’ que nos ha causado esta fallida adaptación cinematográfica.

Avatar is one of the better movie games in existence. It is evident that some hard work was put into the game to make it more enjoyable than your typical movie game. That doesn't make it close perfect. It does score some nice marks for looking good, featuring nice combat mechanics but ultimately falls short on nearly every account. The Na'vi aren't as much fun to play as they ought to be and the RDA feel ultimately generic with their gun toting ways. If you end up being a fan of the movie, you might want to check out the game to explore the world in a more interactive sense but don't think for a second that the gameplay is going to be the reason you stay. If you play this game with low expectations, you'll be impressed but if you're expectations are any higher than that, prepare for disappointment.

As mentioned from the outset, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game really should have been better. It had a lot of the necessary ideas, it had a lot of the time and it has a great premise. It is by no means, a terrible game like Terminator: Salvation. Unfortunately, it’s gone the way of most movie titles. In failing to execute its ideas, we’re left with bloated fetch quest that struggles for meaning and identity. Sure, the use of 3D technology is certainly an interesting hook for those that already have access to it, but you wouldn’t buy such a TV or monitor just to play the game. For now, we’re still left to wait for a time when licensed games will do justice to their source material.

Avatar is a strange game. It's beautiful, and it does things in its own way, which is actually something of a rarity for direct movie licences these days. Sometimes, this works beautifully. Often, it's awkward and unfriendly. It's a beautiful duckling that doesn't turn into a swan.

Xbox 360Worth Playing
Sadly, though, all that beauty was wasted on an otherwise subpar game, one that gets the job done but otherwise doesn't bring much to the table. Playing as a member of the RDA can be fun in spurts, but it quickly boils down into a chore. Meanwhile, siding with the Na'vi is about as much fun as being repeatedly kicked in the head, and neither faction's story provides a strong enough narrative or decent incentives to keep playing after you begin to grow bored. James Cameron may be a cinematic mastermind, but it's clear that the team who created Avatar: The Game doesn't share his creative genius.

Avatar is a likeable title, but just a tad too dull to warrant investing too much of your time in completing both of its narrative components. Completists might get a kick out of collecting every last item and Pandorapedia article, but everyone else might find themselves getting very bored, very quickly. Still, as far as movie titles go, you could certainly do a lot worse.

”Avatar: The Game” isn’t one of those rare fantastic tie-ins, but is by no means as haphazard as “Enter the Matrix” or as detached as “Lost: Via Domus.” It’s ultimately an average game due to a fairly solid, cookie cutter campaign and impressive audio/visual presentation. Had the developers wisely used their two years to iron out the bugs and add more depth to the gameplay, rather than throw together a disappointing multiplayer mode, I’d probably recommend this as a purchase, especially for “Avatar” fans. $60 is far too steep a price to pay for the experience; you’re going to get all you need to out of a rental fairly easily and that’s the best way “Avatar: The Game” should be experienced. Rent It.

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 8 hours is nothing but a chore. It’s like playing fetch, and in case Ubisoft Montreal didn’t realise, I’m not a chuffin’ dog! Despite the lengthy development process, it seems that Ubi forgot one key ingredient... to make the game fun. Such a shame really for a game that showed some early potential. In the end, it’s another shallow movie tie-in.

Overall, Avatar's not a bad-looking or playing game -- it's just very average. You may have the whole planet to explore, but your primary objectives boil down to "go to a point, push a button and or kill some guys, then go back to the start." The framework's in place -- a wide array of weapons, big enemies to take down -- but Avatar just doesn't put them in an interesting setting.

One of Avatar's main selling points is its use of 3D technology, so if you own a high-definition television equipped with stereoscopy, you may get a kick out of seeing Avatar pop out of your screen. Yet even if you're one of the few lucky enough to see the game this way, no TV yet has the capability of making James Cameron's Avatar: The Game play any better than it does. It's not a bad game, and portions of it are competent, if not quite remarkable. But Avatar wears thin quickly, and the story is too fragile to compensate for the deficiencies.

Malgré son statut d'adaptation de blockbuster ultime, Avatar avait su nous inspirer confiance au fil de son développement. Cette version finale n'est hélas pas aussi méritante que ce que l'on pouvait espérer, sans doute trop pressée de débarquer dans les étals juste avant le long métrage. Ainsi, malgré des environnements franchement dépaysants, plutôt vastes et détaillés, le titre se pare vite d'accrocs techniques dont un frame rate trop inconstant qui nuit au plaisir de jeu. Le game design pour sa part reste bien classique et peine à briser la monotonie impliquée par un gameplay beaucoup vu ces derniers temps et troublé par des approximations en tout genre. Bref, en dépit de certains efforts, Avatar laisse un arrière goût d'inachevé et c'est schtroumpfement dommage.

Ubisoft clearly put some effort into Avatar: The Game - it uses Far Cry 2's powerful Dunia engine to create a beautiful, alien world. It offers up some interesting ideas and a decent amount of content, too. The game's a lot better in paper than it is in practice, though. Too many gameplay features are incomplete or poorly implemented to recommend it, even to folks who end up enjoying the film. It hits the low ceiling that we've come to expect from movie-to-game adaptations.

PlayStation 3Thunderbolt Games
James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game is your average movie tie-in. While it tries to do a lot with its MMO style quests, EXP, multiple campaigns and Conquest mode, it never really focuses on making the basic gameplay mechanics a success. The RDA campaign can be enjoyable when you’re using some of the more powerful hardware, but the Na’vi are poor on all levels and the mundane quests you’re sent on never fail to bore. With more refinements to the combat this could have been a solid effort in the battle to make a good movie tie-in; as it is, it can join the rest in the bargain bins.

PlayStation 3Gameplanet
Perhaps if Ubisoft focused on just a few of these features, instead of trying to cram it all in, this may have been a better title - we will never know. As it stands, it is your typical movie tie-in. Fingers crossed the actual movie is a lot better, it sure look like it is.

PlayStation 3Gamestyle
James Cameron’s Avatar the Game is an ambitious license that Ubisoft has taken on wholeheartedly but failed to achieve anything memorable. Crucial errors were made in its overall concept and design from an early stage resulting in a generic and bizarrely mundane experience. Pandora isn’t worth saving on the basis of this and you won’t care about its fate either.

In the end, Avatar was a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. I wasn't expecting much going into the game but I got my hopes up when I saw the variety of gameplay and then had them dashed by a poor story line, or lack there of, and unresponsive controls. As it stands, if someone asked me if I would buy this game I would have to say no but I would rent it as it is worth playing. It is just not worth the $60 price of admission.

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 something special, but once again we’ve been left wanting. James Cameron has undoubtedly created an interesting universe in Avatar with the potential to spawn a cracking videogame spin-off. Unfortunately, Avatar: The Game is not that title.

Aan een tekort aan ambitie ligt het niet bij Avatar, maar het spel is te simplistisch en repetitief opgezet om leuk te zijn. Het doet zich voor als een RPG, maar resulteert in dom knallen. Het verhaal laat elke kans om interessant te worden schieten en is zelfs ronduit wrang als je alleen als de mensen speelt. Avatar is een gemiste kans.

The sad truth is that Avatar: The Videogame has published months before it was really finished to meet the deadline of the cinema launch. It's obvious in the stuttering framerate and lack of polish in some areas. If the game had more time - perhaps held back to launch alongside the DVD it might have been better. As it stands Avatar: The Videogame is a pretty mediocre release.

Investigating these things on my way out of Pandora for the last time made it all the more disappointing, because as you run around the world itself it's evident how well put together it is. It may be a bit silly with its giant bats and weirdo rhinos, but it's a beautiful place, and that gully and waterfall bit over there would make a great set-piece, and that cliffside section is very atmospheric, and so on. Pandora could well lend itself to a great film, and would lend itself fabulously well to a good third-person action game. Unfortunately, despite Ubisoft providing two third-person action games here for the price of one, both of them are dull and forgettable.

I imagine, the description of the game is similar to the movie; there is a lot of showiness masking some mediocre core structure. In the end the hero wins, we enjoy our hours in the dark, walk out into the sunshine and immediately forget the experience. Perhaps those blessed with 3D equipped TV’s or PC’s will get more from this release, the eye-popping screen-jumping effects masking a shallow gaming experience.

Komputerowa wersja Avatara jest jednym z największych rozczarowań 2009 roku. Więcej – nie rozczarowaniem, a całkowitą porażką. Poza jednym, jedynym elementem gra niczym mnie nie zainteresowała. Słabi lektorzy, ograniczenia na mapach, wtórność misji, absurdalny system awansów - to wystarczający powód, by Avatar: The Game dostał ocenę 1/10, lecz ostatecznie zdecydowałem się dać jej 4/10. Do najniższej oceny doliczyłem jeden punkt za idealne wykorzystanie silnika drugiego Far Cry przy tworzeniu życia na Pandorze, a dwa punkty dodałem za encyklopedię, dzięki której można poznać wiele, nieujawnionych w filmie faktów o planecie. W żadnym wypadku nie zmienia to faktu, że nie polecam zakupu gry, nawet w promocyjnej cenie. Znacznie lepiej wydać te pieniądze na wizyt w kinie.

The game has native support for 3D capable televisions, but I wasn't able to test that feature out. It may end up adding a bit more fun to the game visually, but overall, Avatar is simply a rather dull experience, which could be the worst thing you could say for any piece of entertainment. From my time with it, James Cameron's Avatar: The Video Game only furthers the point, rather than dispels it, that the movie-to-video game genre is as treacherous as the planet of Pandora itself.

Todavía sin ver la película, mucho me temo que Avatar: el videojuego no le va a hacer justicia. Es una adaptación hecha sin gracia, aburrida y con mil fallos técnicos y de diseño.

Fancy whiz-bang 3D effects wouldn't do much to rescue the clunky, mundane action here anyway.
