    A waste of ten dollars. It has mundane, awkward platforming, no story context, and a strange difficulty imbalance. There are countless platformers more worth your time.
  2. With an 800 Microsoft points ($10 USD) price tag, Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex is positioned as an impulse buy, but even then, it fails to impress. Take away the license, and you're left with an extremely generic platformer that manages to achieve mediocrity at best. There was potential here, but it went unfulfilled.
  3. On the whole, Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex is a poorly developed Xbox Live Arcade title. The repetitive puzzles, the short story mode and the lack of decent game modes doesn’t deem the game a worthy purchase – especially at the 800 Microsoft Points price tag.
  4. In short, it's a stinker. [Issue#61, p.104]

    Ben 10 is a great cartoon, with a big potencial, but what happen when a studio decide that this cartoon appear in a videogame? the big part of the time is a brutal disaster, and The Rise of Hex is not the exception, the gameplay is bad, the story is good, but with a terrible development, the graphics are regular, this game is bad.
