Bigger doesn’t mean better. Developer Ubisoft Montreal disregarded this mantra when creating James Cameron’s Avatar, delivering a mediocre game loaded with unnecessary padding, rather than a tight and enjoyable package that could have gotten players excited about the upcoming film of the same name. In fact, if you’re eagerly anticipating the upcoming Avatar movie, it’s probably best that you avoid this bland and overlong third-person shooter altogether, because there’s nothing fantastical or compelling about its story or characters. That isn’t to say that Avatar is all bad. A branching story featuring two disparate factions makes this a two-games-in-one experience, so if you like wringing the last drop out of your $50, the single-player campaign might keep you busy for 15 hours or so.
