James Cameron's Avatar: The Game
Great Game And Very Good Story On Both (H) And (A)
Its a pretty good game overall very long, You Can Choose Sides Human Or An Avatar Just like in the movie but its not like Thor Or Green Lantern Kind of games its not mediocre ///
this game is better than black ops2
The graphic are amazing
gameplay was smooth
multiplayer was so good cant stop playing it
the most addictive game out there!!!!!!!
Avatar: The Game for the PS3 is best summed up as being a graphical splendor that encapsulates a rather bland and average title.
The story of Avatar: The Game for the PS3 is a prequel to the movie, but it requires knowledge of the movie to enjoy it. This isn't a big deal now, but it was a common complaint when the game first came out.
I'll also admit that the story is rather dull from what I've seen so far since you'll spend most of your time running around on fetch quests in a long narrow hallways that are occasionally filled with enemies that seem to emerge from nowhere. The story just feels dull and uninspired.
Depending on which side you choose to play as this game either feels like a rather average third-person shooter or a rather bland action-adventure game.
I'd honestly recommend playing as the humans since they specialize in range attacks and are an easier faction to play as unlike the Na'vi which rely more on melee combat and will rather easily fall against rapid machine gun fire and will leave the player honestly frustrated since the game doesn't seem to favor stealth but charging into the enemy ranks with your guns ablaze.
The Na'vi also suffer a bit from camera issues since the game seems to struggle to give you a good view of the action. Though, both factions suffer from a rather useless mini-map. The game is constantly rotating the mini-map to match the direction you are facing which makes keeping track of where you need to go rather difficult. You'll often times have to stop the game by hitting the select button to pull up the main map. This constantly breaks up the gameplay, but even with this map you may find it difficult to navigate in certain areas because of the narrow hallways and multiple heights within the stage which all have to be registered on the same map. The game just has no concept of displaying areas like a floor map in Zelda and ends up suffering because of it.
The game also has a few other annoyances like areas you can fall into, but can't escape from. And, a few glitches. I remember being in the first area of the game that you arrive at and watching a NPC in a forward walking animation, but was moving backwards.
Graphically the game is stunning, but these powerful visuals can lead to a few issues like stuff popping up in the distance as you get closer.
The sound is alright, but the voice acting is rather uninspired, like the voice actors just weren't interested in this project and wanted to go home. It makes the story feel like it lacks any sense of passion or urgency.
The game does offer the option of choosing your side meaning you can either choose to fight alongside the native Na'vi or aid the RDA in raiding the moon of Pandora for resources. I'd just prefer to play this game once and forget about it though.
Lasting Appeal: 4
this game is awesome, the campaign is the best, online is fun........but kinda boring after a while, its a good game
It's pretty good.
This game is pretty good for what you pay now instead of 60 dollars. The story line is pretty good once you get into it but when you start it's a little boring. you can choose RDA ( the one you want to pick ) and the Na'vi.
The difference between RDA and Na'vi is you get long range kick- @$$ weapons with the RDA while you get clubs and swords with the NA'vi That said the Na'vi has a bow and crossbow with LIMITED ammo that you have to make your self. Great game over all though.( if you choose RDA you get to fly around in helicopters and gunships ).
Game Informer was Wrong... For Once
This game is a good. Not perfect but definitely worth more than a 6.5 *cough* *cough* Game Informer. In the beginning you get to choose a person you want to be. Then you begin playing. A few missions down the line you are given a choice, play as the humans or the Na'vi (The Avatars). Both sides give you fun gameplay. Also, there isn't any of those "run around and talk to people" missions. The missions usually have alot of running around to do though. When you are going around the jungle there's vehicles you can use and there is lots of creatures around so it isn't always boring going around the game. Creatures pop up everywhere and sometimes in the most inconvenient of times. The biggest downer to the game is once you play as the humans and Na'vi, playing again is just boring.
its really worth 20 dolars
worth every penny... good graphics,also possible to play online.....................................
I bought it today, played 10 minutes, returning it
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. After that, the reason I bought this game was mostly because of the multiplayer. I thought it looked cool because it looked like Star wars battlefront II. It was nothing like it! I played Star wars battlefront II at my friend's house. First of all, you need wi fi to play multiplayer. I don't have wi fi. Next, I don't think the game is split-screen so to people can't play this game in the same living room. In fact, I'm so tired of talking about it, I'm only going to say one more thing: Don't buy this game!
GREAT GREAT GREAT...but...
I love everything about this game. I couldn't get off of it! But one thing they left out...why is that if you play when it's day time, it stays the day time and there was only one time that I was on a level and it was dark??? I would have gave it a 10 if they included the days that turned into sunsets that turned into night on EVERY LEVEL!!! I ask this cuz my favorite part of the game is when it was dark and i only got to see it once. :~( ...Step it up! But please still buy it, it's a great game! :~)
One of the best Movie-Games.
James Camerons AVATAR: The Game is a solid game. Very loosely based on the movie, the campaign has a good mix of RPG/Open World and Linear gameplay, with the ability to unlock new weapons and armor, as well as skills. The Campaign is also split into two, well balanced and equally great storylines. The Na-vi and the RDA. The multiplayer is added almost as a side note, but is still playable.
