If you're one of the many people out there who fell in love with Pandora and all of its visual treats whilst at the cinema, then why not travel there and take control of a human marine or a Na'vi warrior.
Whilst you can grab a copy of the game on the PS3 and 360 for £7.99 from Comet, their price for the Wii version is a little bit more expensive at £9.99, however they're the cheapest prices around for all three formats at the moment. You'll make a saving of almost £4 on the PS3 and the Xbox, and almost £2 on the Wii. Unfortunately home delivery'll push the price up a little bit, but it's free to reserve a copy in store to pick up later.

The track record that most movie tie-in games have means that most people tend to veer away from them right from the moment they're released and this is no exception because it's not a great game by any means. Even if you were impressed by the movie, don't be fooled into thinking the game's anywhere near as special because you'll be incredibly disappointed.
You can mix things up a little bit in the single player by playing as a testosterone fuelled human soldier or defending your home as a Na'vi, and each race has a unique set of weapons and abilities, which can be upgraded by earning XP as you progress through the various missions.
The jungles of Pandora are supposed to provide you with a free roaming experience, but with nothing else to do but blast groups of enemies whilst you're between missions, things soon start to feel very linear and this leads you directly to boredom.
I think average is the best word to describe the game but now that it's under £10 across the board you certainly won't be as disappointed as everyone who purchased a copy immediately on its release date.
