I have played through all of the Na'vi campaigns and over half of the RDA campaigns and I feel that the RDA campaigns are definitely harder. One of the nice things about Avatar, though, is that it is not a hard game by any means. You don't die much and you shouldn't have to play any of the segments multiple times to succeed. This may irritate hard core gamers but as a less skilled player, I consider it a plus.
Avatar is a good game but with a little more polish and a few adjustments it could have been steller. While the graphics are solid, there are still a few occasional glitches. In the later campaigns there is a little "drop-in" from time to time and throughout the game AI controlled Na'vi and RDA soldiers will appear from a long distance as featureless moving dolls. Then when you get closer the details will snap on. This is hard to explain but when developers make a game the character models are like fleshed out stick figures with a "skin" added later. It was weird and mildly irritating during the game to see characters moving around in the distance as little white figures and then once you got just a bit closer, "pop," now the details.Read more ›
* You can choose to be RDA, or Na'vi.
* The game's storyline is not based on the movie. It's more of a prequel.
* VERY Detailed scenery.
* Conquest mode is an easier way to take over territory.
It would have been a 5/5 from me, but i knocked off a star because the animations, movements, and interactions could have been Way better.
Long story short - Buy this game
Would I rent it again: Definitely not
Would I recommend someone rent this: sure, its not terrible but its nothing great either
Its a third person shooter with a few gimmicks tacked on like leveling and skills, but that's about it. Each level you usually get a new weapon to choose from and a new skill, but after playing for about 4 hours and leveling up several times you realize that leveling up isn't really that much of an improvement. The things I like least about this game are that the enemies are really tiny on the screen so you can't see very much detail on them, the controls and perspective make shooting difficult, and enemies will insta-spawn after you kill a group in an area (this really just takes away from the experience of immersion in-game when four enemies suddenly appear).
Some reviews have said this game is gorgeous. I disagree. There is a lot of detail in the environment but its sorta grainy looking; just not a really smooth look to the environment. I would call this game about average in terms of its graphics compared to other titles.
The game itself is kinda fun, but so far its been a lot of scavenger quests or go-somewhere-and-turn-something-on quests. Oh, and did I mention that it is quest based. The world does seem to be open for exploration, but what exactly you find out exploring is a good question. The quests have all been linear with no side quests so far.
On an up note there is a strategy type game which is kinda fun to play; I've gotten very bored of the main shooter story and I've been playing the strategy game since its more involved and requires a little more thought. Don't get me wrong, I like a good shooter, this just doesn't seem to be one of them.
