James Camerons Avatar: The Game is the official video game based on the highly anticipated film James Camerons Avatar. The video game will take you deep into the heart of Pandora, an alien planet that is beyond imagination. Gamers will encounter the Navi, Pandoras indigenous people and discover other life forms the likes of which have never been seen in the world of video games before. When conflict erupts between the RDA Corporation, a space-faring consortium in search of valuable resources, and the Navi, gamers will find themselves thrust into a fight for the heart of a planet and the fate of a civilization.

Key Features

-Immerse yourself in James Camerons world.
Peer deep into the heart of Pandora and see James Camerons universe, from your own perspective.

-Engage in a massive conflict between two worlds.
Fight for you cause; RDA or Navi. Customize more than 60 RDA and Navi weapons, combined. Choose your skills: 20 for each clan. Drive all of the vehicles and ride the animals. Expand the battleground in online multiplayer.

-Develop your character and acquire new skills
Create your very own character and acquire skills as you progress through the game.

This game doesn't seem to be doing very well commercially.

Has anybody played it, and could offer first-hand experience of what to expect?

Thanks.

Funny enough i got this of fleabay last night for my nipper at £15. New and sealed and thought it was a bargain due to being new game out. Didnt realise it was this cheap anyway, although checked Zavvi and was still £25 there. So it seems to have come down in price very drastically. However i did look at some video gameplay vids of it first and i must say it didnt look all that bad. Some nice looking levels etc... so wondered why it was going so cheap.

Will let u know if its any good when i get it :-)

Have you seen the movie of the same name?

I read in the closing paragraph of a review at ]AtomicGamer.com that it doesn't matter if you haven't...

...Avatar is a game that for all its ambition, fails to actualize. While it deserves some credit for creating a storyline unique from that of the film, that credit is limited due to the game's automatic and largely unimaginative execution. Many of the missions feel like busywork, and seem inappropriate for a world in crisis. And while the combat system isn't bad, the character motivations--including your reasons for choosing a side in the conflict--are pretty thin, making for some abrupt and unbelievable developments. There is some fun to be had in this approximately 8 hour game (16 or more if you play through as both RDA and Na'vi and try out the multiplayer modes) but it just can't compete with the many excellent action games of recent memory. I recommend this one only for fans of the movie—and only after the price is cut in half.
