James Cameron's Avatar: The Game

Auracore MediaWorks
18 December 2009
  • Summary: Avatar leaps from the silver screen to the console market.
  • Pros: Nice visuals; lots of missions and sector challenges to complete; different storyline from film.
  • Cons: Lack of variety in weaponry; Na'vi and humans are too similar; experience system doesn't give any choice; multiplayer isn't very fun, and pretty empty.

Avatar: The Game

AV Club
7 December 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s no secret that geeks have a special place in their heart for James Cameron’s blue-collar-flavored science-fiction vision. While Cameron was away sinking boats and making undersea documentaries, the videogame industry has kept the space-marine flame smoldering nearly single-handedly. (Though let’s not forget the contributions of tabletop kings Games Workshop.) That’s why James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game feels more than a little recursive.

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game [DS] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
11 February 2010
  • Excerpt: You can’t have failed to notice the impact Avatar has made of late.  I’m pretty sure you could see it from orbit, right alongside the Great Wall of China.  Or at least, you could if the movie hadn’t been banned there.  Avatar is the franchise of the now.  So, it stands to reason that there would be a glut of games coinciding with the movie’s release on every machine known to man. The story of the game is something of a side-story to the movie.
  • Pros: Graphics are bright, if small, Much of the classic Zelda gameplay
  • Cons: Loading times are a pain, Doesn’t improve on any of the ideas it ‘borrows’ from

  • Conclusion: Si James Cameron's Avatar DS n'est pas un chef d'œuvre vidéo-ludique, il devrait tout de même plaire à un jeune public ayant apprécié le film. Par contre, l'aspect jeu d'aventure risque de ne pas contenter un amateur exclusif de ce style de jeu, en raison d'un sentiment de déjà vu dans le déroulement de la trame et, par conséquence, des actions à effectuer.

James Cameron’s Avatar - Review

Gamezapp
29 September 2009
  • Summary: Dank des mehr als offensichtlichen Abkupferns bei den beiden DS-Abenteuern von Nintendos Link hievt sich Avatar auf DS im Spielspaßbereich über die Next-Gen-Version. Vor allem aufgrund des mäßigen Leveldesigns und der träge in Gang kommenden Handlung ist auch die Handheld-Fassung des Sci-Fi-Epos keine Spielspaßgranate.
  • Pros: stark an Zelda-Spiele angelehnt, passables Rätseldesign, praktische Karte auf zweitem Bildschirm
  • Cons: Kampfsteuerung nicht optimal, hässliche und ruckelige Grafik, verwirrendes Leveldesign
