Avatar: The Game is just so-so. While not a complete disaster, this ambitious game doesn't deliver the goods. Regardless of the side you fight on, you'll gain access to unique human or Na'vi weapons, special abilities, vehicles, and many characters to interact with. But after playing the game for a few consecutive days, it's clear the magic just isn't here. The combat on this jungle-like moon is decent, as you simply take cover and fire (at humans, Na'vi, or native creatures and plants), move along throughout the lush foliage until you come to the next hotspot, and repeat the process.
This game does have a few things going for it, such as great graphics (and 3-D support if you have both special glasses game and a television set that is 3D-enabled (these sets are still extremely rare), a Hollywood-quality musical score, a strategy minigame, multiplayer modes, and more. But overall, James Cameron's Avatar: The Game doesn't live up to the caliber of the fantasy film, nor does it hold a candle to other Ubisoft Montreal games.
Platform Notes: The console and PC versions of the game offer most of the same features and look, but the handheld versions were designed specifically for a less-powerful, mobile platform.
Online interaction: This game can be played online using a headset so the potential for hearing foul language and inappropriate conversation is there. In the game we played, the experience was decent and without any foul language.
