    The words "Ubisoft", "licensed movie game" and "on Wii" usually equals "very bad game" but holy crap does this game look to be a big exception. Graphically it looks a lot better than most better looking Wii games, shit you could almost say it looks like those early 360 titles (almost).

    Take a look at the link below to see a rare thing, a Ubisoft licensed movie Wii title that has had a lot of effort put into it. [​IMG]

    Sadly the DS version looks like a bad mobile phone game.

    Hopefully it will live up to the hype made at the 40-minutes-ubi-conference-talk about this... But I have to admit, that this looks pretty interesting, even though that doesn`t tell us much about the leveldesign.

    The flying-sequence looks like Panzer Dragoon... Come on SEGA, remake Orta [​IMG]

    I agree, they should get Headstrong to do a new PD game, even a port of Orta would please me. That game was so overlooked.

    Is it me or does some of the video remind anyone of 'Starfox Adventure' on Gamecube ??

    Especially the 'hitting with staff' & flying sequences

    -Looks good
    -Reminds me of Panzer Dragoon
    -Non crapware game with Wii Motion + and Balance Board Support
    -Something different but classic at the same time

    I think this game will be pretty good.

    Saw the trailers yesterday and i didn´t expected that this game looks so promising (especially for a Movie game).
    By the way i don´t think Ubisoft stands for crap games [​IMG].

    Most Ubisoft games are crappy shovelware like Petz, Horsez, and other games of fail.

    Yeah especially all those titles they shitported in the beginning. Who else could royally fuck up Far Cry so badly?

    Oh yeah Activision could.

    I'm surprised. It actually does look pretty good. I'll be keeping my eye out for this one. I never watched/played Avatar before.

    Gosh this game looks so beautiful, it really astonished me. And I´m really glad they brought in some PD style into the game. LOVED PD Orta on the xbox.

    i think avatar games are really good even for the DS and GBA which although have decent graphics but good gamplay
    great graphics and gameplay kinda reminded me of PoP TT (speed kill)... where's aang?

    This looks quite good, especially for a movie game and especially for Ubisoft. First Red Steel 2 and then this? If they announce they're killing the Imagine franchise then they may earn a spot on my good side.
