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.

This must be seriously under tracked on
this site. If ubisoft said that the game
sold 2.7 mil and you add them all up on
this site it does not come close. This
site needs to redo these numbers.

Ubisoft say that Avatar performed well,
the WIi version especially - since
according to VGChartz the HD versions
performed somewhat better than the Wii
version, does that mean that the Wii
version is undertracked (or the PS360
version are overtracked)?
