You'll get to choose among your favorite monsters from the movie as you use each of their distinct skills to battle alien robots and save the world. Each monster gives a different game play experience, and figuring out who to use for specific parts of the game is part of the challenge and fun.
The Missing Link, the half-fish and half-ape monster, can scale walls and do acrobatics. He possesses the brute force to beat up most enemies by bashing and using his tail as a whip. B.O.B. is gelatinous and can stretch and bounce, stick to walls, and swallow and spit out enemies and objects. B.O.B. can get to hard-to-reach places by seeping through grates and cracks. Insectosaurus is 350-feet tall, shoots silk, and has a sonic scream, making her indispensable for fighting giant robots. Ginormica is enormous, can race through cities using cars for roller skates, and can fight entire armies. Dr. Cockroach, PhD gives missions and has a slew of gadgets used to fight the aliens.
Explore Locations in the Movie and More
Locations from the movie have been recreated in the game, which also features game-exclusive areas. You'll have a blast exploring the nooks and crannies of the different environments. There are 20 distinct levels to explore including Gallaxher's mothership, the streets of San Francisco, and the super secret government containment area.
Second Player Can Drop In at Any Time
If a friend walks in and wants to join in on the fun, he only needs to pick up a controller and can drop in on the action by playing as Dr. Cockroach PhD.
Top Customer Reviews
Firstly, other reviews I've seen pretty much hit the nail on the head. This game really does take some of the R&C series' best platforming mechanics and make them feel fresh; often even improving upon them with the sheer amount of inventive variety each new stage presents as the game progresses. There are also a few more comparisons to be drawn from other franchises as well; going as far as incorporating themes from games as seemingly unrelated as oldschool Tony Hawk and even God Of War.
The game controls really well, offers a wide variety of hardcore challenges for the more serious platforming fanatic, and is continually switching up the gameplay. You'll move from character to character each time you complete a level; each with their own abilities and stage stylings. Ginormica's stages are a bit like an on-rail racer. The Missing Link is true to form beat-em-up platforming. And B.O.B.'s areas are more puzzle oriented than all others. You collect DNA points in order to purchase new abilities and challenge levels as you move through the game. All of these are positive things, as each character feels unique and manages to succeed. Stages are fun to replay, and you'll want to anyway for the sake of unlocking new goodies.
Monsters vs Aliens also looks very good. The on-screen action is relentless, and the camera angles are continually shifting; giving you that same sense of visual awe that the movie produces.Read more ›
