Monster Madness: EX coming to the PS3 in early 2008


Monster Madness is one of those games who's exclusivity has gone back and forth for ages before it finally settled on being just a Xbox 360 title. Unfortunately, the four-person party brawler game turned out to kind of suck.

Well they've brought in a new developer (Psyonix) who is updating the game for the PS3, under the moniker Monster Madness: EX and they've promised to fix many of the issues with the X360 version of the game, including things like tightening controls and the camera, adding in a bunch of mini-games and tweaking the graphics.

Monster Madness: EX will be released on the PlayStation 3 in early 2008, so people looking for an interesting looking party brawler may want to keep an eye out for it.

3. I wonder if its going to be a PSN game or a retail one.

4. May God have mercy on our souls. I played the demo on the 360 and their control scheme was terrible which almost seems impossible since it should control like something as simple as Geometry Wars or Stardust HD.

5. @MCX: Huh..that's the exact same score they gave Blue Dragon.

Not like G4TV's reviews matter at all though.

6. Yay, the PS3 gets another CRAPTASTIC game.

7. This is definitely less a blessing than a curse. The problems with the game were with the game itself, not anything a new developer can fix.

8. Hm... an interesting idea for a port... If the new dev is given free reign on the game.... Hmmm... We'll have to keep some tabs on this one!
