Monsters Vs Aliens (Wii)

Monsters Vs. Aliens is one of the biggest titles to be released this year so far, and it is not surprising that a video game would be created for the title. Activision was tapped to create the game, which gives players the opportunity to play as some of the biggest characters in the game. This means that there are different levels that players can take on the role of Ginormica, The Missing Link, and B.O.B.. The abilities of each of these characters significantly differ from the other two, and the different objectives present in each level takes full advantage of these different skills.

The graphics themselves look as if they could be part of the movie, while the vocal acting here is spot-on, fitting not only in regards to the vocals themselves but the overall feel of the movie. The solid game play and stellar graphics of Monsters Vs Aliens will provide a high-water mark for movie to game adaption, ensuring that players are never left with a game that is of the same low quality as a Back To The Future.

The different characters’ levels provide a smorgasbord of different experiences, and while some of the in-character levels get a little bit on the repetitive side, the differences between the different game play elements themselves is enough to keep players’ interests piqued through the entirety of the game. Perhaps the best extra-game materials here come in Monsters Vs Aliens’ unlockables, which range from concept art all the way out to commentary tracks regarding the game play.

While the game seems to be a perfect match for the younger set, Activision has ensured that there are enough distractions and achievements present to make even the most wizened, veteran gamer spend a decent amount of time on the title. Pick up this game if you like solid titles that keep things fresh throughout, instead of grinding to a halt by the time that the title is halfway through; you will not regret it.

Rating: 9.0/10
