PSX Extreme writes: "Those 3D movies just keep hitting theaters at a frequent rate and the kids and families just keep buying those tickets. In fact, these animated films are often huge box office successes, and for good reason: they're often fairly entertaining. We wish we could say the same thing about the video games based on these movies, and although we've seen glimpses of greatness from the likes of Kung Fu Panda and The Bourne Conspiracy in the past, the widely accepted stereotype amongst gaming journalists remains solidly intact. The bottom line is that when a game releases that's inspired by a big-screen adventure, we immediately get all suspicious and skeptical. However, with the right team who actually decides to put some effort into the experience, we always have a chance at ending up with a fun, worthwhile adventure that appeals to its target audience (fans of the film, of course). So the question is: does the PS2 version of Monsters vs. Aliens represent a good budget option for parents? Well, it does, provided your kids don't mind doing the same thing, over and over and over."
