Avatar: The Game is a proposition created on the basis of the film James Cameron, who made a world of lush, green Pandora. The story, as in the original, tells the legend of the conflict between humans and aliens on a wild planet. It looks very interesting and special, but the visual aspect is not the only important thing in this story.
Starting the game, we have to choose the side of the conflict between the bad RDA and good Na'vi race. Our hero is a soldier, who can insert his own consciousness into the avatar to look like a representative of a different race. Selecting a track ultimately affects the further course of the game and turning it into a shooter or a fight. As a man, we have access to vehicles, turrets and all kinds of modern weapons, while the Na'vi gets a special ability to frighten anyone who approaches them. Being in a blue body makes us able to use spears and knives, and thus don’t worry about the limit of ammunition.
Regardless of the breed, one thing is constant - the fight in the game is like an awful mess. Armed with a stick against the army guns will burn us in a few seconds, because we often have no chance to avoid a series of missiles and explosives. You won’t find here the system for targeted attacks, and this means that there will always be a fights consisted on running around and counting on the fact that finally we will aim at the opponent. Unfortunately, there is no strategy, and the camera is set up so casually that we can’t focus on anything.
The only unique feature of the duels are special skills, like a temporary speed boost, or call one of the animals of Pandora to fight on our side. It’s interesting, but only to the point where we discover that they have virtually no impact on the game. Missions, despite the fact of their large quantities are very similar and consist mainly of killing a certain number of enemies or travelling from one area to another and talking to various characters. Game environment looks like a very delicious - made up of the whole mass of the maze-like paths and high shelves. High-end shelves with a little distraction will give us instant death by falling.
The objectives of the game are unclear, and the mini-map doesn’t help us in any. Graphics are quite detailed, but not less individual elements are tuned to the same way. While vehicles and equipment RDA present themselves decently, that the Na'vi mounts leave much to be desired (they are bulky, slow and unable to attack). Similarly, the animations by their rigidity and irregular looks amazingly artificially. Avatar: The Game, in addition to the campaign mode also has a multiplayer option, which generally involves running through a huge, sparsely populated map and desperately looking for something to kill.
Unfortunately, the grounds are too large and the characters are too small to treat it as an interesting game. Also there is no balance between the races - blue creatures gang armed with spears have no chance against mechs, rifles and other weapons. Unfortunately, in contrast to the film, the game is very weak! Authors done this tittle very carelessly, divests all the charm of the history of Pandora and her inhabitants. Only thing it can boast it’s graphics - really pleasant to the eye and pretty good music, but unfortunately nothing more…
