Platformer emphasizes combat, skews older than movie.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is based on the Monsters vs. Aliens movie. The game emphasizes combat, with the monsters pitted against waves of alien drones, giant robots, and a handful of human jail guards. There are hefty doses of cartoon violence and explosions. Puzzles include throwing drones into an incinerator and firing them out of cannons. B.O.B. can suck up guards and aliens and spit them back out as projectiles.

Monsters vs Aliens

True achievements

  • Conclusion: As for the achievements You will gain doing a general playthrough and challenges but there is some grinding to do for the last few achievements. Not a bad list and it does attept to make you play longer. The not dying 10 times total will be a hastle, but you can exit to the dashboard and it wont count against you. All in all it is not a terrible game, as long as you dont mind repetitiveness.

  • Conclusion: The music is alright for the most part, but it could use some extra kick to deepen the experience of the game's missions and challenges. It's a big contrast to the sound effects, which does a better job of portraying the action on the screen. Monsters vs. Aliens is a nice family game that provides some relatively fun, wholesome experience; it's also an outlet for achievement junkies to milk.

  • Excerpt: As one may expect, another Dreamworks movie means another movie based game from Activision. Released in conjunction with the Dreamworks 3D Animation film Monsters vs. Aliens, the game with the same name arrives on the Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, PC, DS and Wii. I was fortunate enough to review the Xbox 360 version. Having played many Dreamworks movie based games over the past couple of years I have learned to keep my expectations realistic and take the game for what it is worth.

  • Excerpt: Ah, the animated movie tie-in. It really is the stuff of legend. The movie makers spend five years creating their masterpiece, animating every hair, every smile and every raised eyebrow, before the licensed game publisher sends out a request for development quotes for the tie-in two or three months before the film hits the cinema. Oh, and it has to be ready for the movie’s launch day.  And we wonder why most of them are absolutely awful.

  • Conclusion: There are elements of Monsters vs. Aliens that could be part of a really enjoyable game, but they are served up over and over again, and with an nonadjustable level of difficulty that's too easy for anyone who's graduated middle school, before becoming too difficult for the kids enjoying it. Though it's a solidly-made game, it's very short, and despite that it still lacks enough variety to make it enticing enough to play for any real length of time.

  • Conclusion: Monsters vs. Aliens provides a perfectly decent, though mostly generic, way to pass the time. If not for the hit-and-miss nature of the dialogue and repetitious gameplay, Monsters vs. Aliens could have been one of the better licensed family games out there but instead, it just falls short.

  • Excerpt: <!– @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –> It seems to me that most reviews that cover licensed “movie gamesâ€� are obligated to feature the done-to-death debate about how video games based off of Hollywood films are traditionally sub-par, generic, and undercooked.
