James Cameron's Avatar the video game will not be featuring on many 'best of' lists for 2009. Here at Gamestyle we did not loathe the experience but Avatar is so average and inoffensive that it's just disappointing given the initial fanfare.
When it was announced Ubisoft had secured a deal to develop the Avatar game hopes were high given their previous work on King Kong. Surely this would turn out to be better than James Cameron's Dark Angel? Sadly the final product while a faithful recreation of Pandora contains little story and relies heavily on fetch and carry tasks. These soon become tiresome, partially assisted by the various locations across Pandora each looking exactly the same.
