Is Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Worth Playing? Reviews Are In!

Here's what critics are saying about Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
Is Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Worth Playing? Reviews Are In!

The reviews for Ubisoft's big 2023 holiday game, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, are here, and they are pretty decent for the most part. Most critics are praising the game's jaw-dropping visuals, its authentic portrayal of Na'Vi culture, and its overall presentation.

However, despite its best efforts, it seems Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is yet another AAA Ubisoft title that crumbles under the weight of its redundant open-world philosophies, making it an awfully predictable experience. In this article, we have compiled some of the most notable Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora reviews to give you an idea of what to expect. 

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Review Roundup


As of this writing, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has a Metacritic score of 74/100.

IGN (7/10)

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora features a stunning alien world to explore with a refreshingly uncluttered approach to navigation, countless enemy bases to destroy and Na’vi clan sidequests to complete, and no shortage of exotic flora and fauna to harvest and hunt. However, its combat is pretty one-dimensional, its mission design is a bit on the repetitive side, and its environment is generally lacking in any major surprises beyond visual splendor, meaning that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is a solid shooting adventure that’s more inside the box than truly out of this world.

Gamespot (8/10)

Pandora is often magnificent, and I stopped repeatedly just to look around and take it in. Diverting from a goal to gather up some armor bark and bow string or blow up an industrial facility were fun detours and felt like an important part of existence there. Best of all, I never felt like an open-world trashman, dumping junk on the way to the next map marker. Instead, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora made me feel like I was adventuring in a place worth exploring, and I'm eager to go back.

VGC (4/5)

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is a good game that has one massive blue foot in two different generations. While presentationally, it’s sublime, from a gameplay perspective, it rarely offers anything new, and still relies on much-mocked map-clearing clutter.

Game Informer (7.75/10)

With time, the many interlocking features started to make sense, and I pushed past any frustrations to find a remarkably large and rewarding game. Enter Pandora’s vast wilderness with patience and a willingness for a measured march to understanding, and I suspect you’ll uncover what I did – a flawed but still praiseworthy addition to this growing science fiction universe.

Destructoid (9/10)

If you walked away from Avatar wishing a world like Pandora actually existed out there, here you go. This is that world. Seeing Pandora is one thing, but being able to scale its massive treetops, soar high above its floating mountains on an Ikran, and traverse its wide open plains on the back of a Direhorse is really something special. This is the best version of Avatar yet.
