Excerpt: "Monsters Vs. Aliens on Dreamworksin uusimpaan, samannimiseen animaation pohjautuva lisenssipeli Activisionilta. Valitettavasti tällä kertaa ei jatketa hauskan ja pelattavan Kung Fu Pandan jalanjäljissä, vaan sen sijaan Monsters Vs. Aliens onkin jälleen yllätyksetömämmin ala-arvoinen elokuvan maineella ratsastava peli, jolla halutaan viedä rahat pois lasten vanhemmilta.. Vieläpä lama-aikana. Jos kukkarossa ei ole Mattia ja lapsesi haluaa tämän..
Pros: + Riittävän helppo ja selkeä pienemmille pelaajille, + Kommenttiraidat ovat hauska idea teoriassa..
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
