Game Overview

The game follows the movie in many respects but is not a mirror of the movie. The virtual characters in the movie, who are human in reality, do not exist in the game. The enemy or NDA are ever present and must be dealt with to obtain your goal. The goal of each mission is different and along the way you may collect Spirits that can be used to upgrade your Staff, Bow, Arrows and your abilities. Some of the Spirits are in locations that can only accessed using the Wasp. To do this you must use the Wii Plus controller, a standard controller will not control the Wasp. The other items that may be collected are Totems and Relics.

The game was designed around the Wii system with some unusual attributes. The Wii balance board can be used to fly the Banshee, the Wii Plus can be used to control the Wasp and at any time during the game another player can drop into the game by simply turning on another controller. What is fantastic about the second player option is that the two players are on the same screen, not a split screen as with most games. This gives the game more depth and realism.

Well, I just finished playing (and
beating) the Wii version, so now I'm
going to give this one a rent as well.
Apparently they're very different (the
Wii has you playing as a Na'vi warrior
while the PS3/360 version has you as a
human/avatar). We'll see how it turns
out! :-P

Didn't help with me. :P

So right after we see this movie (and it
was quite the movie... wow!) we (my
brother and I) head to Wal*Mart. Now, he
was planning to get The Saboteur before
hand, but after seeing the movie... we
were all mesmerized by it. In fact, he
was even tempted to get this game
instead of The Saboteur.

Well, the
shock of the movie was wearing off at
that point, and I kindly pointed him in
the direction of The Saboteur and put
away this game. I just told him to give
it a rent... the game might take him
from his mountaintop experience. :-D
