Rarely a game of this ilk manages to pull this off, however, despite how fitting a film may suit the transition to video game. Avatar, being based on James Cameron's blockbuster film seems ripe for such a conversion; glorious and unique vistas to explore, an emotive and interesting war to fight and an eclectic mix of items, weapons and creatures to pull from the pre-created history. The game is set two years before the film, so many would hope for an in-depth storytelling leading up to the film's beginnings. Unfortunately, it does not do this. As has become too common, this is just another film-to-game cash-in that will leave few happy with their purchase.
