Product Description

Platform: Sony PSP

Product Description

James Cameron's Avatar: The Game is the official video game based on the highly anticipated film James Cameron's Avatar.  The video game will take you deep into the heart of Pandora, an alien planet that is beyond imagination.  Gamers will encounter the Na'vi, Pandora's 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 Na'vi, gamers will find themselves thrust into a fight for the heart of a planet and the fate of a civilization.

Manufacturer's Description

The most technically advanced motion picture ever made has also inspired a video game that's set to make its own waves, as the world of Pandora becomes interactive. Just like the film you must choose whether to side with the human military or the native Na'vi, as both fight for control of the planet.

The ultimate battle between nature and technology
Human weapons and vehicles have awesome firepower
For every human vehicle there's a monster to match it
New vehicles have been designed by the movie makers

Just like the film the game can be played in stereoscopic 3D, but whether you don the goggles or not the intense third person action stands on its own. The game's huge levels leave plenty of space for the two sides to face off, with the technologically advanced humans surprisingly even matched against the super strong Na'vi.

You need brawn as well as brain to win though, with unlockable abilities that can change the course of battle and a strategic overview map to keep control of. With the whole game closely overseen by James Cameron this is one of the most authentic movie tie-ins ever made.

Key Features
  • Untold story: Explore the world of Pandora in an exclusive prequel story set before the movie, but created with the help of the film creators - including James Cameron.
  • Cinematic visuals: Incredible graphics replicate the look and feel of the film, from the deadly wildlife to the giant floating islands.
  • Evolve or die: Unlock new skills and abilities by accumulating "effort points", from air strikes and invisibility for the humans to deadly animal mounts as the Na'vi.
  • Risky business: Strategic overview map lets you plot the overall course of the war - although the biggest decision is which army you choose to side with.
  • The third way: Just like the film you can experience the whole of the Avatar game in full 3D, if you have a console with HDMI output and a 120Hz TV.
About the Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Ubisoft's huge development studio in Canada has created many of the French publisher's biggest hits, including the Splinter Cell series, the modern Prince of Persia games, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Assassin's Creed, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja, the Far Cry sequels and James Cameron's Avatar.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great film...Terrible game for the PSP 12 May 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
For a start, ignore Amazons description of the game (which seems to have been taken directly from the xbox/ps3 release). This is not an impressive 3D open-world battle for Pandora where you can choose sides and control vehicles; this is a very bad 3rd person stealth game. I feel like I could rant about this for pages and pages, but I will try to be concise:

Linear gameplay - You are supposed to be in a jungle, but you are basically running down green corridors. Some gaps can be jumped, some obstacles can be climbed over and some cannot. It all depends on where the game wants you to go.

Frustrating control - Your character moves at running speed, unless you are near an enemy, then he automatically changes to a slow crouching stalk. This often makes running up behind a guard before he turns around impossible.

No camera angle control - The left shoulder button zeroes the camera or locks onto an enemy (notice I didn't say "the nearest enemy"). If you are crouched behind a crate waiting to pounce on a guard, the camera tends to zoom onto the back of your head. Completely useless for stealth takedowns.

Derivative gameplay - No new ideas here, a bit from MGS, a bit from Manhunt 2, a bit from God of War. This wouldn't be a bad thing if Avatar did it better.

Repetitive gameplay - Run through the forest (i.e. down a green corridor), get to a landing pad/base, watch the guards set movement patterns, avoid the laser beams, mess it up because the camera angle makes it impossible, repeat. Even the flight sections don't save the game as you don't control where you fly. It sends you on a set course and you dodge or shoot mines.

No atmosphere - At no point do I feel like I am controlling a Na'avi warrior on the stunning planet of Pandora.

Nothing like the sheer magic of the movie. Just another shoot `em up game, aimed at 10 year old boys. Very disappointing

5.0 out of 5 stars Avatar 1 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a suprise gift and one that was thoroughly enjoyed. Some levels are difficult which is great because there is nothing worse than a game that is suppose to be a 12 up and then a 3yr old could finish it in a day. Would highly recommend.
