James Cameron's Avatar
13 November 2013
Conclusion: Gameplay : 7/10 - The overall gameplay is passable. I experienced minimal control and camera issues but they are still there nonetheless. Still quite competent and fun. Replayability : 7/10 - Two separate campaigns, novelty multiplayer and a fun mini game give it above average replayability Overall...
Summary: Reviewer is honestly baffled that the developer wanted this evaluated. It’s a shallow cash-in on Avatars, often painful to look at, and just proves the point that the Uprising developers are trying to make.
Excerpt: Avatar is everywhere at the moment. It's surely one of the most hyped movies of the decade, so we shouldn't be surprised that there's a tie-in video game. Ubisoft has been working closely with director James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment; we've been gradually made to believe that this is more...
Excerpt: If EA games are guilty of one thing, it has always been style over substance. In this, Facebreaker is no exception. Like many of the developer’s titles, Facebreaker is shiny on the outside and easy to pick up, but with little durability or intelligent design.

Excerpt: Uh oh. A video game based on a movie? This can’t be good, right? The only thing worse than a video game based on a movie is a movie based on a video game. But wait a minute. We are talking about a James Cameron film here, the director of such blockbuster movies as Aliens and The Terminator.
Summary: " James Cameron's Avatar " is a pretty odd game. It offers way more content and ideas than the majority of licensed games out there, but then does its best to screw up the execution at every single turn.
