James Cameron's Avatar the Game won't be as good as the film

VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi got a preview of Avatar the Game. Unfortunately, while the imagery of Pandora is beautiful, the game play of the combat is lackluster.

I don't care about the game. I'm definitely sure that the movie won't be anything spectacular. James Cameron eats money.

He should learn how to direct from me.
BTW, if you want to play a game that is on a par with my films in terms of animations and excellent direction, play Uncharted 2.

Omg it's Micheal Bay.
Real or fake! That's the question.
Anyhow! The movie trailer really looked cool.

Isn't that applies to every game made from a film

o_O James Cameron is one of the best directors (but Titanic is overrated and meh). At least it's not Spielburg or Michael Bay doing this, it would be terrible.

Not enough 'splosions and fugly hoes hmm?

Well i don't think the movie is gonna be any good at all. The trailers look like crap if you ask me. They billed the movie as having tech that you have never seen in any movie before and all we get are uncanny valley effects and retarded laughable blue people. Looks like a massive waste of money and a game based on a massive waste of money will obviously be a massive waste of money.

Just because Cameron made some good stuff doesn't mean that everything he makes is gonna be gold.

Are...any games ever as good as the film?

Wanted: Weapons of Fate was pretty good wise. That's all that comes to mind for me right now. Spider-Man 3 was, it was lame.

The only ones i can think of are Lion King and Alladin for Genesis and Goldeneye. Seems like they just throw it on some devs and give them a strict deadline to cash in with the theater release.

Sucks because my relatives end up buying me these cause they know nothing of videogames, pretending to enjoy these is brutal.


There are many games bases on some universes that had come first in movies that are really good. The problem is usually with games tied to be released with movies, that should stick to the movie narrative and art, which usually don't work because those were not designed to be compatible with interaction.

Not to mention the crap job/low budget developing that goes into it, which is acceptable in the industry standards... Nobody really expect those games to sell anything by themselves.

Did movie game ever not fail? I guess not.
You just cant make movie game because movie story is good for movies but not for games.

Games story is good for games not for movies

Movie story: 1.5h-3h
Game Story:5-10h

Well goldeye was great game and i know 007 Nightfire is not based (from )movie but still very good game.

I think King Kong was great too.
