Monsters vs. Aliens Demo
When the Earth is invaded by a race of sentient alien robots, someone must rise to the challenge and defend the planet against the threat. However, no one expected a team of monsters to be the ones who take it upon themselves to stop the invasion, let alone a weird combination like the one seen in Monsters vs. Aliens.
Jump from character to character
Monsters vs. Aliens is an action-adventure game that's based on the popular DreamWorks production and tells the tale of an unlikely team of superheroes, who come together in a time of great peril and use their strange powers to stop the alien threat. As the one controlling them, you are able to switch between each one of the characters, in order to complete various missions and slowly eliminate the evil robots.
Among these heroes, you can find Ginormica, who's basically a human girl, with the only difference being that she's 50 feet tall, as well as The Missing Link, who's a combination between ape and fish, wielding great strength and many other useful abilities. Naturally, all of these skills come in handy during the missions, because they are designed that way from the beginning.
Pleasant and colorful graphics
Since the game follows the events seen in the movie, most of the locations and environments are the same as well, although they are somewhat more restrained and less detailed than they are on the silver screen. However, this doesn't mean that you run out of things to do, since every mission has you chasing someone, running from something or fighting your way through hordes of annoying robots.
To depict these colorful apocalyptic landscapes, the game uses a colorful, but potent graphic engine, that's more than capable to withstand good-looking special effects and plenty of polygons per square inch. In addition, the voice acting is just as hilarious and entertaining as in the movie, especially during the amusing cutscenes between missions.
Plenty of fun for the whole family
In the end, Monsters vs. Aliens can also be played in co-op mode, which allows a second player to join the action at any moment, playing as the brilliant Dr. Cockroach, who's capable of slowing down enemies and helping you overcome various obstacles much easier.
