Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia is one of those great, straightforward games whose only premise is to kick some monster ass. Gamers won't have to worry about saving the world or civilization-just your city and maybe some of your friends at school, if you have time that is. Gamers play as one of four characters that come under attack when monsters invade your little suburban paradise.

Thankfully, Monster Madness is more than just hacking and slashing monsters, it's a whole adventure spanning five huge environments with 25 gigantic levels total. Gamers get mission objectives, and cool interactive puzzles to solve which include everything from arena type battles to driving different combat vehicles to even transforming into a monster with your own abilities. Weapons can be traditional types like shotguns, machine guns or even a chainsaw, or gamers can construct their own weapons with common household objects. Ordinary items can also be used to upgrade your more traditional weapons, so it's easy to get creative with your firepower and match your mods to the monster problem at hand. Vehicles include hovercrafts, go carts, UFOs or even giant mech walkers, plus each one equipped with extra firepower to take make sure enemies don't get the upper hand. The animation of the game looks "comic book" style and levels like Cemetary Scary, High School Hell, and the Shopping Maul reflect the kind of light-hearted game your in for.

This game was created to have a fun single-player adventure, but equal weight was given to the multiplayer aspects to make it easy for a wide range of skill levels to pick up a controller and join the action. Offline up to four players can get down to monster mashing, and online offers up to 16 players for team play, arena action, and other fun game options. Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia gives gamers fast-paced action, clever gameplay, and the satisfaction of destroying monsters in cool, fun ways.
