This game surrounds Ben Tennyson who is a normal ten year old boy who is very mild mannered. He happens to stumble across an alien device that lets him change into ten different alien body types with they own special powers and abilities. He uses these various guises to fight the alien forces of evil who are led by an alien named Vigilax. He wants to use this device that Ben has found for his own plans which of course are not good. Together with his ten year old cousin, Gwen and his grandfather, Ben must stop him and in the process save the world.
The game is based on the same named show on the Cartoon network for anyone that has watched it. This particular offering is great fun as Ben and his helpers travel around America in an RV. They visit cities and famous landmarks along the way. At each place they move to they have to fight the enemies and armies of Vigilax in order to survive and progress. The good thing about the game is that you don't get all the alien bodies at the start so you have to work for them by gaining points. At the beginning he can change into Four-Arms, XLR8 and HeatBlast, all with different powers. As he progresses he is able to change into more and more.
As mentioned each alien body he becomes, comes complete with it's own benefits. For example, Four-Arms is very good at climbing walls and Heatblast can extinguish fires. You have to decide which is the best one at any given point to change to which is all part of the challenge. While he is an alien body there is a time limit that ticks down and when it finishes he returns to his normal body again. Even as his normal self he can still fight but is just not as strong when he is an alien. When he his normal self the time will recharge and eventually he will turn back again.
The graphics in this game are fantastic as is the sound. The game play is pretty simple to be honest with you which is always good and is easy enough to control the alien bodies and switch into them. It might take a bit of time to master the special features. The only bad thing is that you can't save as you go along so have to wait until you complete a level.
The levels do get harder as well as you progress as you might expect and the enemies get bigger and nastier until you work you way to the ultimate leader of the evil forces, Vigilax. It's a really pleasant game to play if you've got some time on your hands and great fun too as you try to save the earth.
