    For once, Gamespot appears to be biased.

    As an avid gamer and a fan of the science fiction/fantasy genre, I was rather disappointed to read that Avatar had received such a low score especially since I had just bought the game. However, as I couldn't return it,... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about James Cameron's Avatar: The Game

  • Review Score:6.5

    Adequate...but bland at best

    James Cameron's Avatar: The game is tied in with James Cameron's Avatar: The movie and if the movie is like the game, I hope the movie isn't like this...seriously. Story: I think the game expects you to understand the... Read Full Review

    An ambitious game that is brimming with atmosphere but doesnt hit all the notes.

    James Cameron's Avatar project has been in the works for a while now, 14 years from script to screen from all of the information that I've gathered. Announced in 2006 as an MMO, Avatar the game has finally hit the store ... Read Full Review

    Don't be mistaken, this is a very average game that screams 'missed opportunity' at every juncture.

    Ok, It's not THAT bad, you should still try it out

    ok to start off, I bought this game when it came out so I didn't check the rating, when I watched the gameplay I thought it would be like a gears-of-war-type of game but i was sadly mistaken. To be honest, at first, I di... Read Full Review

    The mainstream reviews are totally wrong about this game, it rocks!

    There has been a lot of bad and unfair press about this game and they are wrong, I think that most people who bad mouth this game have not even played it or spent any time at all exploring or fighting in the jungles of P... Read Full Review

    This game has done more to spark my interest in Avatar than the mighty torrent of crummy adverts for the film.

    Yep, that's right. Maybe it's just me, but a commercial that features little else but some unexplained graphics, a plug about the director who did Terminator 2, and the assurance that it's going to blow my freaking mind ... Read Full Review

    Good enough to rent.

    Reviews are a subjective thing so instead of elaborating about what's good and what's bad I'm going to base my score on 10 factors. These 10 things are what I like in a game. If you happen to have the same tastes in gami... Read Full Review

    Mediocre. Another fallen dream.

    This game is so mediocre that it makes me cry. I was very enthusiastic about it but it´s just smoke. It´s worth nothing. I´ve got the same sensation as Far Cry 2. They sold us this kind of games as the next revolutions i... Read Full Review

    Amazing game in 3D

    Just finished playing the game-42 hours as RDA and 28 hours as Na'vi. The two sides are surprisingly completely different even some locations were different so you did not cover the same ground twice. Playing as the 10 f... Read Full Review
