good game

on 1/15/2013

If you like the movie, you'll have fun with the game. A little bit violent in alien-fighting combat but nothing unusual or bloody, etc--standard fight scenes. The game gives a new perspective on the movie: the same story, but from the aliens' perspective.

Review Okay, kids, it's that time again. Another summer blockbuster hopeful has hit theaters, and it's dragging along with it a slew of games to pad its parade of licensed merchandise. Fear not, however, as the handheld imagining of Aliens in the Attic is a competent romp that's actually worth a look...The game closely follows the story of the movie, and you'll take collective control of Tom, Jake, and Hannah throughout the adventure. Aliens have invaded your attic, of course, and it's up to the trio to save the world. Aliens in the Attic is something of a platforming shooter, so liberties are taken in terms of the size of rooms and the overall expanse of your abode...If you're hoping for a focus on story, you're sure to be disappointed. The exchanges of dialogue in the game are mostly funny, but they're also fairly generic. You'll get the gist of where the game's headed, what's happening with the characters, as well as a basic plot that ties everything together, but the action takes center stage here. Considering the premise of the story, however, the presentation works just fine...Though the melodies don't stand out, the music and sound effects are really fitting for the gameplay. Themes add a nice element of excitement to boss encounters, and there's something indescribably satisfying about the sound you hear when collecting bolts. Unfortunately, since it often takes quite a while to wear away at certain obstacles with your gun, you'll get tired of hearing the sound of your own weapons...We had fun with Aliens in the Attic. On the one hand, it's completely formulaic, has quite a few extraneous level elements, and it's a terribly brief adventure. However, the game also has a lot of charm, a fair amount of polish, and the mechanics and production values are of a very high caliber. With nine adults to rescue and tons of bolts to collect, you can easily get a couple of playthroughs out of the game. Still, the adventure doesn't add up to much in the end, and its length is ultimately its greatest shortcoming.
