PixelJunk Monsters is a title that helps strengthen the quality offerings of the PlayStation Network. With an easy to learn experience and a game with unlimited replayability, it comes to no surprise that this title should be looked at as a steal for a measly $7.99. You can barely go see a newly released movie for that kind of cash, why bother when you can spend it like this and get unlimited enjoyment in return for your money.

  • Beautiful 2D world
  • Easy learning curve

We dislike

  • No online multiplayer
