    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 is different? The game or the Movie?

    Fully one of the most long, 3rd person shooting, and action adventure game. Most of the game offers a huge selection of places to go and a butt load of characters to choose from. Maybe the most entertainment you'll get ... Read Full Review

    As seems the trend, A alright movie produces another dismal game.

    I saw this game at my local game store and having watched the movie and enjoyed it, i decided to give the game a chance. I reached the plot split and decided to be a Na'vi. And then within about 10 hours the game was f... Read Full Review

    James Cameron's Avatar has great graphics, sometimes unresponsive controls, repetitive gameplay & is very short!

    Loved the movie so had to get this game. Overall it was well worth it playing through the approximately 8-9 hours of gameplay. Controls can be very finicky, especially in the flying levels. Whoever came up with the idea... Read Full Review

    This game is alot better than gamespot made out, it's actually a really good third person shooter.

    AVATAR deserves alot more credit, especially on this website. I watched the review before I got the game and then I read a couple of user reviews and the results were very different. I got the game and was impressed by ... Read Full Review

    Under....underated

    At first, i went along with the hypothesis and synopsis of others to think this game might be a game that i will play for a few hours. I did some you tube research and i couldn't think of how this game looked bad as in g... Read Full Review

    Movie= :) Game= Sucks

    I am going to keep this review brief, so you have time to take back the copy of the game. Avatar was a good movie, with its eye popping special effects, and at least mildly decent storyline. Avatar the game (unle... Read Full Review

    I thought the game was really good,especially for a game based on a movie.

    Avatar is according to Gamespot a very terrible game.To me,it's revolutionary in games made after movies.I bought it out of boredom and started to love right away.The gameplay is epic.The storyline is decent.And the grap... Read Full Review

    One of the worst games ever made for Wii.

    This game was not even worth a review... its forced path arcade approach is not the only problem... It just plain sucks. Boring. Lame. Not even worth a review... just wanted to hopefully save someone from making the m... Read Full Review
