As I was waiting for the game to arrive in the mail I read a lot of the reviews for the game and became increasingly worried that it would not be as good as I was hoping. Fortunately it was better! The major complaint I heard was that it did not follow the story line and that is true, the game does not in anyway follow the storyline and for me that was perfect. If you're looking to follow in the footsteps of Jake Sully, do not rent this game. However if you're looking for a game that will expand your view of Pandora and the Na'vi people this is the game for you.
The pros are the amazing graphics, the easy to follow storyline and the great developement of characters.
the cons were the controls. I had no problem with the simple walk around and slash controls however once you got the dodge ability with the bow I was dodging all over the place when all I wanted to do was change the camera angle so that became a little difficult. Also, using the wii balance board for flying actions did make it seem more realistic however the reaction time was slow and sloppy, so I'd stick with the normal controls for flying. It's the only reason why this game did not get a 10.
I would definitly rent this game if you're looking to explore more of Pandora.
