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...
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...
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.

Pros: Pandora looks pretty, combat is fun, Conquest is an interesting diversion
Cons: Freedom is an illusion, poor storytelling, tedious missions
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: 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.
Summary: Vom Film so gefesselt und von der Idee, einen Charakter auf einem fremden Planeten zu spielen so eingenommen, kaufte ich mir dieses Spiel, aber was von der Vorfreude darauf übrig blieb, ist die Enttäuschung über die Umsetzung!
