    Wow, just from listening to what Adam said I knew that it would be a 2/5 before he said it lol. It s just a big hype around the game because it s JCs name stamped on it and I foresee the movie being that way too. And no I won t go see it.

    another movie game I wish they would just give up on that already. I mean come on everybody knows that most movie based games suck. I can't wait to see this movie though, it looks amazing.

    I agree that the store at the beginning is bad (now I did only play as the Na'vi, ACII didn't give me a big enough break from shooters), but as I went along I understood the story and what was going on. Wasn't very deep, it is basically a race to save the planet, but it still has u on a set path you understand.

    But gameplay wise I actually enjoyed it a lot. At first I almost returned it because of the controls, but I would say after 1/4th of the way through the game I got the hang of it and really started to enjoy it. My biggest issue was at first I kept pressing L1 to zoom in and would flip off a cliff and when i switched to a melee weapon I would start mashing square. After getting over that, it was smooth sailing. Flying controls still sucked, but lucky there wasn't much of that on the Na'vi side.

    Probably the main reason i wont buy the game now is because of the multiplayer, it is fun when you get into a big enough game (even though the Na'vi are out matched when it comes to the Mechs). But the way they set up the multiplayer the odd of finding a game with people in it outside of first 3 maps/game modes is rare.

    I do look forward to seeing the movie and having some of the wholes filled in that should of been told at the beginning of the game though. Maybe they did that on purpose. They tried to leave you with questions unanswered so that you will want to see the movie to get them answered. Unfortunately they did it the wrong way and just left important parts out of the story. Oh well, just a thought.
