[edit] Background

Based on the upcoming DreamWorks Animation 3D feature film, the Monsters vs. Aliens video game puts the fate of the planet in players' hands as they lead a dynamic team of five misfit monsters on a mission to save the world.

The game allows fans to experience the movie's action and humor while playing as The Missing Link, the macho half-ape, half-fish; the gelatinous, indestructible and always hungry B.O.B.; and Ginormica, the 49-foot-11-inch tall woman and Insectosaurus, the 350-foot tall grub. Players utilize each character's distinct strengths, sizes and abilities to battle giant alien robots that are wreaking havoc on earth. Friends or family members can join in the excitement at anytime as the world's most brilliant scientist, Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D., in the unique co-op multiplayer mode.

[edit] Gameplay

In Monsters vs. Aliens The Video Game, players bash robots and battle the alien menace as the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link, the gelatinous, indestructible, and brainless B.O.B., and the 49' 11" tall woman, Ginormica, with the help of the monstrous 350-foot tall grub Insectosaurus. Plus, team up with the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. in co-op mode, to save the earth from the megalomaniacal alien Gallaxhar.
