Personal review
Seriously, anyone playing this game should NOT map use key to space bar like I always do. The space is hard-mapped to skip dialog and with use mapped to it (the same key that initiates the dialog), you'll miss >99% of the dialogs, makes a rather empty game and if not for the objective marker, you'd be completely lost.

bioroids - the human-Na'vi hybrid remote controlled hosts (Avatars)
magic - although the movie makes anything even slightly mystical have some scientific sounding answer (although still quite fantastic), the game incorporates elements (not seen or even hinted in the movie) that are impossible to explain away as such (many of the "skills").
upgrade system - hidden behind the conquest minigame.
no children - although this makes sense for the RDA, the Na'vi villages, especially the hometree, are oddly devoid of children.
human / bioroid protagonist - early on the player is given choice to side with RDA or the Na'vi, later events also make the latter (and likely former) choice quite permanent, the former obviously bars out any use of the Avatar as they were intended mostly for diplomatic reasons, while the latter occurs as an accident of sorts where the original host body of the protagonist dies and the Na'vi use their pseudo-magical religion to transfer the protagonist's consciousness permanently into the Avatar.


Na'vi specific: bows, crossbows, riding, melee weapons, summoning
RDA specific: all firearms (except machineguns), driving (and all vehicles), hostile flora, ammo magazines, flamethrowers, g.launchers, infinigun (the dual pistols)
