Monsters vs. Aliens
Much Better Than Expected!
I saw the movie in Imax 3D, and I just assumed the game would follow suit with most "movie" games and end up being a dud. Thankfully, a few developers have caught on to the bad stigma that surrounds movie based games and go the extra mile to break out of the mould. I'm currently on chapter 4 and I can definitely recommend this game to anyone that enjoys a good platformer, regardless of whether or not they have seen the movie. The various characters make each of their levels feel like an entirely different game, because each has their own unique attributes. The graphics are solid and impressive at times when there's a lot of activity going on. Sound effects are spot on and are great on a 5.1 surround system. I'm not sure how many chapters there are, but up to the point I'm at currently, it's been a great ride. I'd definitely recommend this game to anyone!
