The Good: Awesome graphics and audio, lots of unlockables, great boss fights, variety of aliens to play and beat up
The Bad: Short, repetitive, nothing new or original, you won’t appreciate everything unless you are a fan, dry humor
I have no idea what the Ben 10 cartoon is or that it even existed I just thought this was a decent brawler, and it is. The game doesn’t do anything exciting, new, or even original but it does what it does very well. The graphics and audio are outstanding with crisp clear visuals and great voice work from the cartoon. Ben and his family are trying to save the world once again from the evil Enoch…or something like that.
While you won’t fully appreciate the game unless you’re a fan of the cartoon you can still enjoy it. The game play goes along the lines of your typical button masher with combo power ups (that don’t really do much) special attacks, and waves of enemies. While Ben 10 sports lots of different enemies and aliens to play as the action does get somewhat repetitive about half way through. There are a ton of extras to unlock but these are really only for fans. The game is short with about 6 hours of game play, but what’s really cool are the boss fights. Think of them as God of War light where you have to engage mini-games to beat each boss like God of War. This was surprising and they are very cool to watch. I suggest Ben 10 for anyone wanting to kill time and looking for a mindless brawler.
