  1. Activision and DreamWorks have another solid movie-licensed game ready for fans of the upcoming film.
  2. Monsters vs. Aliens is a great family-friendly rental. It's the kind of game you'll enjoy alongside the movie – but not necessarily a game you'll want to play through more than once.
  3. While not a deep or especially polished adventure, it'll keep you entertained for a weekend.
  4. Those that have played the other games in the DreamWorks Animation series might get a feeling of déjà vu when experiencing it, but if you’ve never played any of the other games, Monsters vs. Aliens should impress with its solid approach to an equally memorable film.
  5. I can only say that it was nice spending the half-dozen hours with my kids playing the game, and that my wrists really hurt from shaking the Wiimote around. There are some funny bits, but it's not as good as the movie.
  6. A game best left to kids who really, really liked the movie. Other kids and everyone else should look to get their gameplaying fun elsewhere.

    Monsters vs. Aliens' biggest issue is just that it's so damned repetitive. What could have been entertaining in smaller doses instead drags on far too long, is recycled into tedium and ends up relegating the experience to the same bargain bin as just about every other licensed game.
  8. Monsters vs. Aliens isn’t a bad game, especially for the younger target audience it is oriented toward. It also isn’t a great game, as it is pretty short and generally repetitive.
