i did like this game, its some fun arcade action (even more fun with multiplayer), but it is packed full of glitches and little annoyances that caused me to use language around my dogs that i wouldnt normally use...the good points- challenge mode, upgradeable weapons, variety of melee weapons (i used melee most of the time), decent level layouts. the bad points- vehicles getting stuck on just about every little thing in the environment (even sidewalk curbs), fixed camera angle (if a monster is just outside the screen you wont be able to see them or hit them and some parts of the game require you to kill every monster in the area before you can progress), i also noticed a few sound glitches (where you would hear a monster and none would be around or the surround sound would be on the wrong side). its still a decently fun game that might be worth a rental, yet unless you wanna be frustrated with little annoyances with the game, its not worth a buy at any price...

A Decent Arcade Game

Monster Madness: Grave Danger is a copy of Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia on the 360, except the PS3 version is a little bit improved and revised. How is it improved: the game has more features such as arena, battlefield deathmatch (up to 12 players), and more challenges (mini games).

This game would be decent for old-school arcade fans. With the availability to upgrade and customize your characters, the game appeals its replay value by encouraging me to play more after I beat the game. This game could be very addictive, although it won't last for months. The game encourage me to play challenge mode to unlock costumes. However, after I passed all the the challenges with decent grades, I didn't feel like going back and playing it more, which means the challenge mode doesn't have replay values. Despite the forgettable challenge mode, the game comes with battlefield and arena which allow players to have deathmatch/ team DM. However,there was almost none players who likes this mode--tho it's a good addition to the multiplayer experience.

The game truly shine when it comes to multiplayer coop regardless online or local. However, the game has some minor bugs such as vehicle got stucked on the environment, camera issues, and lagging.

The graphic is OK, but I would expect that the improved ps3 version give something more appealing than the 360's graphics. But the developers seems to unpolished the graphic and having it straight ported from the 360 version but with a few features addition. The cutscenes just doesn't cut it. I can't expect much from the story.

I would give this game a 6.5 if there's any. The main problem about this game is the $. They shouldn't sell this game for $39.99. Rather than selling the game on the retail store, this game could be a GOOD game on PSN store for $29.99(for the highest. But I doubt that will happen. So, for arcade fans out there, just wait until the game's price gets cheaper. For hardcore gamers,this game is a RENT

It reminded me of the Zombies ate my neighbors but more weapons and monsters. I think the bad reviews are because they didn't know what this game is all about. It is a classic!
