Summary: My 6 year old boy had no problem installing and playing this game. I don't know what went wrong with the other reviewers' computers, but you do have to have a DVD ROM and a decent video card (Requires ATi Radeon X800 128mb RAM or NVDIA GeForce 6600, so that may be part of it. On XP, it didn't automatically start itself for install, but we just went and clicked on the file manually and it was fine. It works on both our Windows XP and Windows 7 computers.
Summary: It would be a lot of fun if we could play it. But it's not compative with our computer programs Windows XP or Windows Vista. The software is too new for the game. It arrived in great condition and my son was so excited to have it but it's too slow for the software. sad.
Another Sucker, but this time an innocent child lost $$

Summary: My son just went through two brain surgeries and we were in the hospital for 5 weeks. One of his grandparent's friend's gave him a gift card for Amazon.com and he was soooooo excited about buying his own games for his computer. Now just like two of the other three reviews the game does not work on his computer. The computer does not even recognize the disk as being in the drive! What upsets me is that this was not my money that got wasted but my child's money.
Summary: This game was a hit with my seven year old son. The tutorials were fine and the levels were varied enough. You play any of three monsters depending on the level. One of the better movie adaptations. Pros: Good design, no hiccups on XP, nice tutorials Cons: Tricky keyboard shortcuts. Has a small age window 7-12 years old, that will find it fun. Too easy after 13, too hard before 6. Other: Graphics are nice and should be ok on a decent graphic machine.
Summary: I just want everyone to be aware that I think you need an upgrade on your computer, i.e. a gaming card which will cost $200.00. Tech support said we had a graphic corruption; whatever that is. Anyways, I assumed it would just be like Wall-E PC game which we adore. My grandson was terribly disappointed since we took him to the movie & was excited to getthe game. Oh well, doesn't help that Gram is computer illiterate. Now we r stuck with the game. Anyone want it?
Summary: Voy a hablaros de un juego que compre para mi hijo hace algunos meses en una tienda de juegos usados y que me costo solo 5 euros. Se trata de Monsters vs Aliens para PC y es un juego infantil ,y aunque esta recomendado para mayores de 7 años y mi hijo tiene solo cinco,antes le he echado un vistazo y creo que deberia de estar catalogado para todoas las edades,porque sigo sin comprender los baremos de estas catalogaciones,pero ese no es el tema.
Summary: Habe mir das Spiel einfach mal "auf Risiko" aufgrund des günstigen Preises gekauft, wobei ich den Film zu diesem Zeitpunkt zwar kannte aber noch nicht gesehen hatte. Wie im Film (den ich inzwischen angeschaut habe) muss im Spiel mit abwechselnden Charakteren eine Alieninvasion auf der Erde bekämpft werden.
Summary: und gut umgesetzt! Ein kurzweiliges Spiel, welches sich mit netter Grafik auch einigermaßen an den Film hält. Sehr lustig, man spielt immer wieder mit einer anderen Alien-Figur. Ein wenig schade ist, dass der zweite Spieler immer nur als Prof. Kakerlake eingreifen kann (und dann auch nur als "Fadenkreuz" eingreift)..
