James Cameron's Avatar: The Game is the official videogame based on the highly anticipated film James Cameron's Avatar. The videogame 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 videogames 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 civilisation.

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.
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.

Once you've picked your side you are let loose on Pandora and can explore the vast world and everything it has to offer, collecting missions along the way, which usually involve killing enemies or blowing things up. The combat has some depth to it, allowing four special abilities to augment your arsenal which can be chosen and swapped at will. Once you become accustomed to using them, you can quickly dispatch enemies, heal yourself, reposition and attack again. It's all fairly good fun if not ground breaking.
However, the game world itself deserves a special mention. If like me you're buying this to learn more about the Avatar universe it really comes into its own. The jungle is beautiful, massive, lush and packed with a vast array of flora and fauna, all of which have detailed descriptions in a 'Pandorapedia' which will give information junkies all they could ask for.
Two things worth a special mention are; Pandora at night is stunning, and when you realise it goes UP about a mile as well as across, it's a spectacular moment.
Two things to forget; Some boss fights are so simple it's embarrassing and movement around such a wonderful world is hampered by some invisible barriers and iffy collision detection.
All in all, i've enjoyed the experience and although not outstanding, it will give those yearning for a little more of Pandora exactly what they wish for.
There are many reviews available for this game and many different opinions. I believe there are two different people who will play this game. 1) Fans of the Avatar movie. 2) Those simply looking for a good game. If you are looking for a good game, you might not necessarily find it here. However if you are completely besotted by the world of Pandora and want more, this is the game for you. Avatar: The Videogame, is set two years before the events of the movie and tells a completely unique story. You have the chance to play as human, human in an avatar body and Na'vi.
The storyline is completely separate from the movie so don't expect to see Jake or Neytiri in this game. However minor cameo appearances are made by Dr Grace Augustine, Colonel Miles Quaritch and Trudy Chacon, all voiced by their movie counterparts.
The player character, "Able" Ryder, is a Signals Specialist (SigSpec) sent to Pandora as part of the Avatar program. The first hour of the game will see you complete various small tasks for the RDA while learning several key elements such as combat or vehicle driving. You also get to try out your avatar body as well, to get a feel for your new blue skin. Eventually, after a series of events, you will be presented with a dilemma and you must chose to side with either the gun toting humans or the arrow shooting Na'vi.
Either way, the story concerns Able Ryder (Who can have any one of twelve diferent male or female appearances on starting the game) collecting shards of unobtanium and using them to tune several musical willow trees in order to find the ancient well of souls, a dormant site with great power. Obviously the Na'vi want you to protect it and the RDA campaign would have you control it.Read more ›
The Graphics for this game are absolutely superb beyond belief, even alloing you too play the game inn 3D!!!!
Te world of pandora is beutiful and engrossing personally im just happy to wonder around it admiring th forests and wonderful creatures. Which brings me to the navi mounts never before have i played a game where the creatre your ridings muscles visibly strain particularly in the bashees you see the membranes pf there wings stratch taught as they beat or flap in the currents as you dive towards tthe ground.
Overall I would say that this game is well worth buying esecially if you have a HD tv. And most definately recommend that you play through the Navi campaign as oposed to the RDA as i found it absolutely fantastic.
