    I tried to get into it. But after 4 hours I realized it wasn't me. It's just I didn't like how this game plays.

    Honestly, I give any game a chance: FPS, Simulation, MMO, Platformer. When this came out (before the demo was on hand), I believed what was written about it and downloaded it immediately. Only to find...

    One of the best PS3 games, and only $10!

    Rated on March 30, 2008 by Jrfanfreak88

    PixelJunk Monsters is one of the best Playstation 3 games on the console. Remarkably, the game is only $9.99 but you get a lot for the small price you pay. The game, as you might have read, is a tower...

    Embodies "Trial & Error". Patience & a good temper is needed to play this twist on Tower Defense.

    You only need to play the tutorial missions to find out that Pixel Junk Monsters is a 2D game marked for its simplicity and its strategic elements. The game is a neatly-done twist on numerous "Defend...

    A small price to pay for a great tower-defence experience.

    Rated on June 17, 2008 by pigsybum
