3D Review: James Cameron's Avatar: The Game

Game: (3 out of 5)

As far as movie-based games go, this game is actually pretty good. Sure, it's no Killzone or COD, but it's not bad. The story line itself is almost non-existent. And if you haven't seen the movie then you really won't have much of a clue as to what is going on.

As well, the game play itself can get a little tedious at times. I'm not a big fan of games where you are sent off to complete a mission. Then when you return, you are sent off to complete another mission. That's pretty much what the entire game is. But the graphics are very well done which makes the game bearable in that respect.

3D Effect (5 out of 5)

This is where the game really shines. The 3D effects are absolutely stunning. The first 20-30 minutes doesn't really do the game justice. But once you get deeper into the game the 3D becomes truly immersive. For example when your flying one of the dragons it literally looks like it's flapping its wings right in front of your face. If you're looking to find a game that can showcase your new 3D TV then this is definitely the one. Plus you can usually find used copies on the cheap on eBay or at your local used game store.
