Product Overview

Planet 51, the white picket-fence world reminiscent of 1950s America is happy, safe and predictable...until the unpredictable happens!

Out of the blue, Captain Charles 'Chuck' Baker's spaceship comes crashing down. Unaware of his surroundings, Chuck begins to realize that he is not alone. Taking refuge while planning his return home, Chuck meets green-skinned local, Lem, and realizes that he may be the real 'alien' after all!

Review The animated film Planet 51 turns 1950's sci-fi about Earth being invaded by little green men on its ear. Life on the titular planet very much resembles the stereotypical vision of 1950's America, but the inhabitants are little green men (and women), and the alien invader is an American astronaut. It's a charming concept that has enabled the people behind the game to create an inviting world that younger players are sure to enjoy exploring--a world that meshes 1950's design concepts with hovering cars that are a lot of fun to drive. It has a few frustrating elements, but it's got plenty of appeal for children, families, and gamers seeking some whimsical amusement...Many of your missions involve controlling a vehicle, so it's vital that the driving be enjoyable, and it is fun. The cars in Planet 51 resemble classic cars of the 1950s, except that they're round and hover a bit above the ground. This freedom from friction with the road means that in addition to accelerating, steering, and braking as cars do in any number of games, they can also freely strafe from side to side and leap higher into the air for a few seconds to get over obstacles or other cars. The handling is just a bit floaty, which feels right. (They are floating cars, after all.) And each vehicle can go into turbo for a short while, which is accompanied by a screen-shudder effect that contributes dramatically to the sense of speed. Reckless driving will result in pursuit by police, but they're very easy to shake off, and even if you're busted by the cops, there's no penalty aside from being transported to the nearest police station. So kids can enjoy a bit of mild GTA-style police pursuit in the harmless, lighthearted confines of Planet 51. All in all, driving in this game is easy, intuitive, and enjoyable...There are a few local multiplayer options here as well. Two players can compete in races, demolition derbies, or hot bombs, which are basically a vehicular game of hot potato that can be fun in short bursts. It's clearly aimed at younger players, but Planet 51 is attractive and fun enough for even parents or older siblings to enjoy. If you're looking for a good game for some gaming kids in your life, chances are they'll enjoy a visit to the inviting world of Planet 51.
