  • Summary: Monsters Inc. is the largest scream processing factory in the monster world. Their patented, state-of-the-art door track delivery system is quick and efficient, automatically connecting a child's closet door to their system so the Scare Team can go in and collect the screams. Enjoy animated antics and chaos across 15 stages in an adventure platformer. Includes enhanced DVD content featuring behind-the-scenes interviews, deleted scenes, Pixar artwork, sketches and short films. [SCEA] Expand

  1. A fun but slightly frustrating game due to the bad camera handling.
  2. Although Monsters, Inc. is leaps and bounds beyond film-based games, it is still just a mediocre triumph; mind you the game is targeted at pre-teens.
  3. Besides the graphics not being real impressive and the character voices not being original this is one of our favorites of the Monsters, Inc. games.
  4. [It] will likely bore the older players and frustrate the young.
  5. Passable graphics, decent sound, an uncooperative camera angle and cakewalk difficulty make this a great rental option for fans of the movie.
  6. It's tough to be impressed by a game based on a Pixar movie, when it's a given Pixar's CG is 2,000 times better than anything a current game system could offer. [Apr 2002, p.77]

    Don't be fooled into thinking this is a credible piece of software, cause it's not. It's an interactive ad mobile, and in that it's quite exemplary.

    This game is better than people say on here. It may be like every other platformer, but it has its own style in a way. The only drawback the game has is its too short! If it was a little bit longer it may have been even better. Basically you run around, collect items, get 5 canisters and 100 scare coins which unlocks both a bonus level and a clip from the movie. The best thing is the locations of the levels: They really emulated the Monsters, Inc universe quite well. And that is quite hard to do to get every little detail. All in all, if you want a great game with lots of bonus features and such, get this game! Its not a whole lot on ebay, so snatch it while its still cheap! Expand
