James Cameron's Avatar: The Game (PC): Save the Tree of Souls !
3 July 2013
Summary: I bought Avatar for PC a couple of years ago for about £8 online. The price has dropped since it was released ( just before the actual film ) and maybe even cheaper. No one has reviewed this for PC so I thought I would. I loved the scenery in the film , and when I saw a clip on you tube of the graphics I bought it just for that.
Pros: relaxing and also challenging
Cons: may be to big for old pc's or not hard enough for some gamers
Conclusion: Theres a little formula in these situations, that the quality of a movie video game is propotionate to roughly 25% of the quality of the movie. This usually means that most video games based on movies are useless, but because Avatar was such a good movie, it is a (moderately) good game. QED.
Conclusion: Firstly, this game easily earns a 3 1/2 star rating, but obviously i cant do that. i didnt want to degrade it to 3 as it honestly deserves better than that, so i uprated it to 4 because its actually a decent game, unlike the usual mirriad of unfinished code that development houses tend to lump on the consumer in time for film release deadlines these days.
