Childrens' video games suck. That's not conjecture. That's straight-up fact. Now, a video game adapted from a children's movie? That's a disaster waiting to happen. Luckily, Activision has taken steps to reverse this horrible trend. Monsters vs. Aliens, a movie-based title for the kids, is actually a surprising adventure that both children and adults alike can enjoy. It's not perfect - most games seldom are, but it does offer up a good time for anyone who gives it a chance.
