4.0 out of 5 stars A challenging game, but too repetitive
This game is great for kids, but not so for adults. The graphics were amazing and the sound was good (it isn't like those annoying repetitive tunes).
You go around looking for bits to Boo's door and then putting them together like a jigsaw puzzle at the end. Adults and older kids might find this too repetitive but is fun and challenging.
Your enemies are the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun- But more suited to a younger gamer
Monsters inc is a scrolling, collecting items type of game. Easy to play but does become a bit repetitive. The game is suited to the younger player although some of the jumps needed to collect all the items can be a bit difficult at first.

4.0 out of 5 stars A challenging game, but too repetitive, 26 Jun 2004
This review is from: Disney-Pixar's Monsters Inc (GBA) (Video Game)
This game is great for kids, but not so for adults. The graphics were amazing and the sound was good (it isn't like those annoying repetitive tunes).
You go around looking for bits to Boo's door and then putting them together like a jigsaw puzzle at the end. Adults and older kids might find this too repetitive but is fun and challenging.
Your enemies are the anti-kid monsters in these yellow suits with a suction tubes. You can knock them out is by roaring at them (how cool is that!)
Overall a fun and intermediate game!

4.0 out of 5 stars great for kids, 15 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Disney-Pixar's Monsters Inc (GBA) (Video Game)
I bought this as the first game for my 5 year old son. He had seen the film and loved it, so that was a good start.
The game itself is really good. The graphics are excellent, the figures large and detailed enough for my son to recognise clearly and enjoy. The map layouts are also readily understandable, even for young kids.
The game is clearly linked to the plot of the film and the in screen clips are very high quality and great fun. I must admit, I enjoyed helping him with some of the puzzles, but the music drove me mad (it can be switched off).
All in all, a good buy for younger kids, perhaps best for the 5-8years old age group.

3.0 out of 5 stars The end result is a well thoroughly enjoyable game, 22 Mar 2002
This review is from: Disney-Pixar's Monsters Inc (GBA) (Video Game)
The THQ-published Monsters Inc. on Game Boy Advance gives the handheld community to take monsters Mike and Sulley wherever they wish, and now, in 32-bit form.
Boo is in trouble after returning to Metropolis, and if he falls into the clutches of the CDA and evil Randall, his Monster life could be doomed forever!
This is where you come in. Taking control of both Mike and Sulley you must come to the rescue of your old pal. You must search every nook and cranny of Monstropolis, defeat the most daunting of monsters and avoid the most devious traps to succeed in accomplishing your goal.
Monsters Inc. on Game Boy Advance is a little more polished than its GBC counterpart. As well as the obvious graphical enhancements such as improved colour and a higher level of detail, there are several exclusive bonus games, puzzles and mini-games. The main game is spread over approximately 20 levels, all themed to match the style of Disney's film.
Like with Game Boy, the controls are relatively simple, and only require the player to perform simple platforming actions such as run and jump. Signature 'attacks' such as the Roar attacks and the dreaded laugh launcher have also been included to give a little variety and comedy to the game.
The end result is well thoroughly enjoyable game that succeeds purely because it's simple, light-hearted fun. If you need a break from the intense Tomb Raider and Resident Evil games, Monsters Inc. will be right down your alley.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth any price, 3 Aug 2007

This review is from: Disney-Pixar's Monsters Inc (GBA) (Video Game)
This was the first game I bought with my GBA. It is the most repetitive game I have ever played. You'd probably never finish it because you'd have died of boredom before you got half way through.

The graphics are reasonable for an early GBA game but that doesn't make up for the game itself. On each level you do exactly the same thing you did on the last level, mainly walking around looking for map pieces and avoiding the yellow-suited guys who knock your health down slightly if you bump into them. Not hard to complete the levels considering you can see where you're supposed to be going on the map.

Overall, too repitive but has bright graphics.
