“He's tiny, creepy, fast, and strong
Morning after morning I was greeted to this song over and over again. Two of my sons (aged 7 and 9) are devout Ben 10 fans. They have watched pretty much every episode of Ben 10 they can on Cartoon Network. Therefore when given the task of playing the game they took it on with relish.
The artwork in the game mirrors the cartoon fairly closely using 3D cel-shaded graphics. The environment is predominantly a side-scrolling pseudo-3D affair.
You are able to unlock 5 aliens that you can transform to, each with different abilities. 80 attack combos can also be unlocked that are triggered via button combos similar to many beat-em-ups.
“It’s a great game, the graphics really look like the cartoon. It’s all over a bit too quickly. The game should’ve been longer, there should’ve been more aliens to unlock. Some of the sound effects getting annoying after a while as you hear them a lot.”
Fortunately this game can be picked up for between £15-£20 so is pretty cheap therefore the longevity can somewhat be overlooked. Ultimately it’s a game aimed at children and my two boys did enjoy themselves whilst playing it. One for any young Ben 10 fan.
- Similar graphics to the cartoon
- Too short
- Repetitive sound effects
