Loved the Movie but the Game is a Major Disappointment.

Summary: After seeing and loving Avatar in 3d on IMAX I decided to purchase the game. The game arrived today and after playing for about 30 minutes I just can't take any more. First and foremost the game does not contain the main characters of the movie which is a major disappointment for someone who loved...
Summary: First the pros and cons: The Pros -Some gorgeous visuals and scenery -Great looking vehicles -Lots of action among two campaigns -Somewhat interesting multiplayer -A 3d version (only if you have a 3D tv) The Cons -Repetitive missions -Clichéd gameplay -Bad story -Choppy controls -Bad story Avatar...
Summary: Seriously lame game. I just didn't enjoy it (very repetitive and boring). I also tried the PC demo beforehand..(I should have known that the full console version of the game would be just as stale).
Excerpt: I was really excited when this came out. I thought 'ooo the movie was amazing, so the game should be pretty ok as they should be wanting to keep their reputation positive'. Maybe not. But its the rule isn't it, that whatever comes second (out of the game or the movie) is instantly an epic fail.
Pros: Original . Similar to movie in terms of characters etc .
Better than most movie based games, but only just.

Excerpt: Okay, so any gamer knows the track record for movie to game conversions, and it’s not good. You can probably count those worth playing on one hand. So it was somewhat tentatively that I parted with my cash in exchange for the video game interpretation of Avatar, and if it wasn’t for the fact that it...
Pros: Pandora looks pretty, combat is fun, Conquest is an interesting diversion
Cons: Freedom is an illusion, poor storytelling, tedious missions
Summary: Essentially a convergence of Uncharted 2 and Far cry 2 - uncharted 2 = lots of fun Far cry 2 = long drawn out rpg style adventure - some fun, but mostly serious affair. This game is ok for £10 or so, you dont care about the story (yawn) go here - talk to guy - go back where you came from - kill some...
Summary: A very basic style of game play, reminded me of a ps2 game rather than a next gen one. Actions look forced and unnatural and despite the fact that the world was impressive at times, a large amount of it is merely scenery and rocks and ledges which appear perfectly traversable cannot be stepped on.
Summary: Dont be fooled about the great movie, this game is not very good at all. the missions are very difficult and complicated at most times. it may be cheap but you should buy a different game than this, a real let down.PS3 name: jmulvaney
Summary: Habe den Film AVATAR nicht gesehen, daher dachte ich mir mit dem Spiel einen Einstieg zu bekommen. Hab nicht in 3D gespielt - vielleicht ist das der Grund - kann ich mir aber nicht vorstellen - für meine schlechte Meinung davon.
