GameInformer: Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Review

GameInformer: "Make no mistake: This is a game for young players and their families. Only the most die-hard Achievement hoarders will have the endurance to stick through it if they didn’t start off with a love for Sesame Street and its characters. If you’re under the game’s intended umbrella, however, it’s one of the best family focused games ever made.

If you had to distill Once Upon A Monster to its essence, it’s a series of educational minigames that you play with Kinect-based motions. Reducing it that way would be a mistake, however. Double Fine absolutely nailed what makes Sesame Street what it is, from the Muppets’ loveable personalities to how educational content is cleverly masked beneath storylines that kids can relate to. It’s all strung together in a series of vignettes that make up larger chapters in the game’s virtual storybook."

really an 8.5 for this piece of trash? a whole point higher than a better quality game in Resistance 3? i know these are 2 completely different games but i've just lost respect for GameInformer.

Yes, because Double Fine is known for making horrible games... really man? You haven't even played the game and you're willing to say it's a "piece of trash" simply because it's family-oriented?

I think the only one looking like trash at the moment is you. Seems like a great family focused game.

I just wish my son was older so he could play this game (he's only 1 1/2). It's nice to have some family content out there, and I've always been a huge fan of Double Fine. Grim Fandango, one of Tim Schafer's from back in the lucasarts days is one of my favorite games of all time. I hope this game sells well so we can see more like it.
