The game was okay. You could play as either human or the natives and experience both sides of the story, I played human first and found it pretty fun. Not so much the other side.

Ubisoft Montreal developed a lot of melee combat games so it was weird how bad the melee combat was in a game with lots of melee combat. If this game had come out a couple years later, it would probably have just used the attack-parry generic combat that AC and Arkham had popularized but it would at least have felt good at the time.

reminds me of the avp game where playing predator is always funner (to me)

The best part of this is the human storyline was literally slaughtering defenseless natives. Literally a be-the-bad-guys-in-Fern Gully simulator.

I never played this game but good lord I remember the E3 conference when James Cameron stood on stage and rambled on for like an hour and a half about the game like it was going to be the greatest game ever made.

I love when stuff like that happens, because it's always nice to see how far beyond people's expectations the videogames industry actually is. These people see their tie-in videogame or whatever and think "This looks ground breaking!", and then they show it off and the audience is like "we saw that 5 years ago in a better game."

minimme did a video on it a few years ago it seems there are things in the game that hint at more things they wanted to do with the game

could be however that the potatobox 360 and the potatostation 3 were too potato so it was scaled back to prevent baked potato or they ran out of time or both (2009 was about the time that they started to get really potato compared to PCs iirc)

given that the new game was announced five years ago perhaps they have had time to make a game this time?

I wish they brought this game back, I wanted to play it so much, but eventually it got delisted off Steam.

Massive Entertainment is making another Avatar game. I'd expect the reveal trailer to coincide with the sequel's initial marketing push

Edit: Massive Entertainment, not EA Motive. My bad

I'm not sure how good the actual game by Ubisoft Massive will be but they make INCREDIBLE worlds... at the very least it'll be beautiful.

World In Conflict is still a great looking game even by todays standards

i think there is nothing that good or catchy in Avatar's generic story and world."human bad, meet pocahontas".After watching it we were all disappointed, with good direction, CGI and 3d scenes being the only reasons to watch the movie.

i am not sure what that brand brings to a videogame 12 years after the movie.

there's more movies coming out.

It's probably for marketing the new movies coming out later + many gaming worlds are generic and beatiful with little truely unique features. The gaming community usually doesn't have any problems with cliched stories either. None of what you said is a counter indicator for a game and seeing the marvel movie's success, it's more about brand than good stories in that sector too.

Is it just me or do the links not work?

Also tried googling it and looking on youtube directly and couldnt find anything.

Does anyone have a working mirror?

Edit: Weird, doesnt work on Firefox but it does work on Chrome. No idea whats going on here.
