This game is lots of fun. I have been playing it all weekend and am still addicted. The game has little story but makes up for it with non stop action. It's true that the game doesn't do anything new and amazing but it's a movie tie in. When has a movie tie-in done anything revolutionary?

The game plays almost like a single player version of a multiplayer game. You run around a huge map killing every enemy thing you see. Yes, most of the missions are recycled in different ways but the nature of the game is a shooter. The missions just giving you different reasons to do it.

I think the Na'vi side is a bit more fun because you have close range melee attacks that work well up close. As well as an awesome bow and arrow that can take out most tiny soldiers with one satisfying hit. Plus for some reason, I guess because they are tribal, you get the urge to play with a more hunting style. Climbing to the tops of giant trees and stalking tiny humans and taking them out with your bow and arrow really nails the tribal hunter awesomeness. The RDA side is shooter style only with no melee at all. That can be annoying because when enemies get to close they can be difficult to target because they move so fast when up close. But at least they are huge targets.

The graphics are unbelievable. The Jungles are so detailed and amazing to look at. The best part are the night areas. Everything glows in the dark. The trees, plants, animals. It looks almost like under the ocean. The perspectives are fun too. Playing as the Na'vi everything looks tiny including the humans. When you play as humans everything is huge. It helps to make both sides of the game feel original even though you are actually playing on the same maps.

QUICK IMPRESSIONS

After watching the movie twice (once 'regular' 3D, than on IMAX, getting a copy of 'Avatar - the game experience' came naturally, regardless of the so-so reviews I found at Amazon. To my surprise, I do NOT regret making this purchase - not because Avatar is an exceptionally innovative game but because it keeps the world of Pandora alive and teaming with life and conflict as we are all waiting for some more affordable 'at home' 3D technology to make the real Avatar and maybe a sequel or two possible in our living room.

So, briefly, the game is VERY good at giving us a sort of bird's eye view of Pandora - the color, the features, the wild life, RDA's war machines are all pretty good renderings of Cameron's cinematic masterpiece - a 3D mode is possible but we don't have that kind of a TV so we can only imagine what a 3D game would look like. Gameplay itself, while a bit repetitive, is not that bad and the lack of variety in weapons and skillsets is compensated by the several play modes. As for replay value, it really depends on how much you enjoyed the movie. By the way, I would not recommend playing this game unless you watched the movie because you can't play Avatar with a cold heart.

GAME SETUP

You have the ability to give your character a first name - last name is always Ryder and you are a signal specialist. The game lets you shape you gender and appearance and, while at it, you will see how both your human and Na'vi face are going to look like. There are no difficulty settings so, unless you want to tinker with the sound settings or other minutia, you're ready to go.

Of course, there will come a point in the game where you will have to choose between sticking with the humans or joining the Na'vis.

First, the Good: The game is absolutely beautiful. The environments are wonderful... This is why I bought the game. Exploring the world as a Na'Vi is quite fun. I didn't do much as an RDA Human, but it was just as fun.

The Bad: There are many aspects that are grossly lacking in this game. The foremost in my mind is the creatues, as a Na'Vi. First of all, there is no connecting of the queue, you just hop on. As far as I can tell, my Avatar didn't even have a queue (no long hair braid). There was no personal Banshee that you were bonded to, you simply rode them around in special parts of the story that allowed you to.

Worst of all in regards to the creatures, you could not attack from any of them. I expected to be able to fight with my Banshee and also to fire my bow from atop it. But no... Riding any animal in the game completely removes your ability to attack. Which means riding a horse into battle is a sure way to get the horse killed. Same with the Banshee. The "Thanator" has it's own attack which is surprisingly pathetic and often misses, because when it is attacking, it can't also move.

There is no stealth in the game. No sense of sneaking around, stalking RDA. You are either running full speed or walking, but no crouching and moving stealthily. There is a gimmicky invisibility ability, but that does not give the feel of a tactical game, more along the lines of ... oh no, I am about to die, invisibility! Or, I don't want to fight those guys right now, invisibility!

While the environments are beautiful, you feel walled in, heavily walled in. You can only fly so high before you hit a glass ceiling, and in some cases a glass floor. Additionally, flying the Banshee around was alright, but trying to land with it was a total drag.
