Monsters vs. Aliens Review

17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: A long time ago in an elementary school not too far away, there sat a young boy with an overactive imagination. He frequently dismissed what the harsh old hag of a teacher had to say and instead took solace in the exquisite drawings he was capable of. He was enamored by the idea of crafting a dungeon so remorseless, so devious, and so brutal that no hero would ever be able to escape it. What lay at the heart of the dungeon didn One positive for Monsters Vs.

Test: Monsters vs. Aliens

  • Conclusion: „Monsters Vs. Aliens DS„ ist ein solides Jump’n Run-Adventure-Spiel mit wenigen Actionelementen. Im Gegensatz zu den Konsolenfassungen darf man hier allerdings alle fünf Monster durch das Abenteuer begleiten. Trotzdem lässt der Spielspaß nach einiger Zeit etwas nach, denn sowohl die Levels an sich, mit Ausnahme der Aufgaben der Kakerlake, sind extrem einfach, als auch der Umfang, denn mit nur 20 kurzen Levels bleibt ein langfristiger Spielspaß eher auf der Strecke legen.
  • Pros: schöne Gesichte dank Kino-Vorbild, alle Monster steuerbar, spannende Rätsel mit Dr. Kakerlake
  • Cons: kein Multiplayer, langweilige Level, kaum Abwechslung, zu geringer Umfang
