Summary: 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.
Camera angles make all the difference. Poorly Done.

Summary: Avatar was a great movie and the game is in 3D. The game itself is just about awful. The point of view is horrible and too close to the character. The visuals are good but, the 3D mode (which is why i purchased the game) is difficult to set up and further adds to the nausea when combined with the point of view and bad camera mechanics. Overall just frustrating on almost every level. It gets a 2 out of 5 just for visuals.
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. Shame in this case. The action in the movie could have produced an amazing game. I think that if they had taken more time on the game, or thought about it ...
Pros: Original . Similar to movie in terms of characters etc .
Summary: The game looks amazing.... just like the movie. But the mechanics of the game are just crap. Hard to look around and go where you want to... when using any of the machines or animals to move around its just crap too... see the movie, don't play the game. wait till its on the used shelf for 10 bucks.
Summary: lo unico semejante a la pelicula es el entorno.....esta bn partir siendo humano pero al momento de elegir entre en bando de los na vi o los humanos; siendo na vi transcurre todo muy rapido, enfrentando una batalla dura constantemente ante los humanos, la conexión cn los animales no es cmo en la pelicula es tan simple cmo llegar y cabalgar(pesimo); siendo un humano tienes q cumplir misiones pero en fin, tmbn matar y matar....
