It's a pretty old game but at that time it was one of the best. If you're a fan of the series you should go for it though


I have beta tested 57 games,

This game is way cooler than I thought. It has a cool theme which isn't found too often, and even though it is old, don't understand the hate for it. Really cool music, and great cutscenes and movie like effects.

Highly recommended!!! Screenshot from my new ipad.

Sorry for the delayed response, I saw this earlier and forgot to post...

If you enjoyed the movie and are thinking either iPad or HDTV, I wouldn't hesitate to say yes, you should pick it up.

There's nothing overwhelmingly awesome about it, but it is Avatar + GL, so it is definitely enjoyable.

Let me know...

Edit: OMG! You ninja'd me!

I could never give up.

Hehe, thanks for your awesome feedback, yes, I did buy it, and it is good, much better than I expected. I was kind of leary reading a lot of the itunes reviews, but maybe the expectations in this game were too much.

The graphics while a little dated and not ipad retina, really play out well on hdmi tv, and the movie cutscenes are plentiful and cool. The music and theme are very cool, and while fanboys of FPS shooters might not like this style, I was pleasantly surprised!

Highly recommended! Attached is hdmi tv screenshot. The colors are different from my ipad retina shot above.

Actually, that sounds like a fun game concept. Running around shooting at people shooting at bad guys.

Decided to get this one too. I'm one of the three people left that haven't seen the movie. I know the gist of the plot, just never took the time to see it partially because it was so overhyped. Anyway the game looks like you do some different stuff (running, riding a dragonfly thing, etc) and that could be a fun experience.
