Monsters vs. Aliens
Monsters vs. Aliens is a third-person action platformer, based on the Dreamworks film of the same name. Taking control of either B.O.B., Ginormica, Missing Link, or Dr. Cockroach, players use each of the monster's unique abilities to battle enemies. The game reprises the roles of Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, and Rainn Wilson, and includes drop-in co-op.
The game received moderate reviews, with an average score of 61%, praised for its superior presentation and voice acting compared with other film-adapted games,but criticized for its repetitiveness.
If you have a friend to co-op, it's possible to complete this game in one playthrough, plus with some mopping up. If not, it may require two playthroughs. Also, some of the monster challenges can be frustrating at times.
Overall, this is a low 2-star rating, but certainly more challenging than most games based on kids films, such as Rango or Megamind. Depending on how many playthroughs you do, will probably take between 10-18 hours for the Platinum.
If you wish to avoid more than one playthrough for this game, then we recommend focusing on getting the Remember The Heroes trophy, which involves completing the entire game without failing more than 10 times. In this case, failing means dying either by losing all your health or falling off a platform. The best way to stay under 10 failings is to quit the game immediately and reload your last save. Do not quit via the pause button, as the game will automatically save your progress. Instead, hit the PS button on your controller and exit the game.
Also, once you complete the game, remember to watch all the credits for the Stay Put And Watch trophy.
Once you've finished your playthrough and earned the Remember The Heroes trophy, you should have the majority of them by now. The last step simply involves mopping-up anything you've missed through the chapter select, such as collecting 500,000 DNA particles for the Never Say Enough, any co-op related trophies, and of course the Monster challenges.
