Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster is a game made with the youngest of casual gamers in mind, but those in that audience will definitely go apeshit over being able to actually dance, perform plays, and go on adventures with their favorite Sesame Street characters. Children and parents are sure to love Once Upon a Monster as much as Cookie Monster loves to crumble up cookies in his hand and spit them out on the floor.
  • Pros: Wonderfully immersive world, Intuitive controls, Varied gameplay
  • Cons: No additional gameplay modes, Very short, That you’re not a 5 year old anymore

6 December 2011
  • Excerpt: In the warm, cozy world of Sesame Street , we’re not scared of aliens — we want to aid them however we can. So, not surprisingly, helping a pair of smiley blue E.T.s find their missing relative is goal No. 1 in this cheery downloadable chapter for Once Upon a Monster . The search involves a series of Kinect-based activities similar to those in the full game, including flapping your arms to fly around and slowly raising them to bring singing flowers in tune.
  • Pros: + Boasts the same great production values and sense of glee that we loved in, + The quest for the missing alien entails mostly fun activities…

  • Excerpt: I'm 37 years old, and I'm reviewing a Sesame Street game. I never thought I'd ever see the day that I'd be reviewing a game such as Once Upon a Monster, but that's the risks I have to take when being a game reviewer, let alone the fact that I am one of the few members of the GiN staff who does reviews with the Xbox 360 Kinect. Once Upon a Monster requires a Kinect on your 360 to work.

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster review

GameZone
25 October 2011
  • Excerpt: When making an education-based game for kids, developers usually have to draw a pretty restrictive line.  They have to make sure that these children are learning something from their games, but as a result, they often sacrifice what makes it so entertaining to begin with.  We’ve seen this in countless examples over the years, including games for Wii, NES, Sega Genesis, and more.

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
24 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Love it or hate it, Kinect has unarguably been a great entry point into gaming for those not used to the button-filled controller – everyone from the older generation who wouldn’t even attempt to play a game previously to young children that may not really have the attention span to learn how to use a controller. Kinect certainly opens up new possibilities for how games are played in terms of simplicity.
