Yeah, pretty much every major movie that might interest kids at all is preceded by a game release. It spoils the story and the games are almost always terrible.

You've seen the trailer? And you have no doubts? Blunt allegory of the conquest of native americans + awful casting (michelle rodrigeuz eewwww) + fursuits for the good guys = guaranteed horrible!

Yeah, it's not like Cameron is immune to the common trend of popular 80s and 90s directors releasing crap no one likes in the CGI era. I would not be surprised at all if Avatar becomes one of the biggest bombs in history.

That said, I predict it will do average hit numbers but nothing special.

Graphics is great especially the jungle theme. AI is not bad.

Pretty surprised by this, graphics are really good, animation is smooth.

Gameplay...well, if you liked lost planet you'll like this, and i loved lost planet.

As for the film...if the space marines don't flame-roast barbecue, enslave or smallpox blanket the natives then it's fail. In that way this game is prolly better than the movie.

I played through the demo last night and liked the game. It's a little rough around the edges with the controls and gameplay wise but the graphics are phenomenal. I get very little slowdown at all with full settings, and it especially looks great at night. I am tempted to outright purchase this game but I should probably wait for a price drop.
