The Good The Bad And The Monkey!

Only a few short months ago I had the pleasure of reviewing Lights, Camera, Party! for the PlayStation 3, a PlayStation Move title that was a lot of fun to play, but could have done with a few little tweaks to improve the game to make it more accessible for a group of players.  The new DLC is titled The Good, The Bad and The Monkey and adds a whole new bunch of features to make the game an even more enjoyable experience.

Additional Game Mode

The biggest benefit the game has over the original is the addition of a new game mode.  The new mode is called “The Dual” and allows players to go head to head on all of the events. This may seem like a small addition, but because of this addition the game becomes a whole lot more fun than it was when you are playing the game with friends or family.

The Dual allows you to play six rounds of mini games with a friend, head to head. The idea of course is to beat your opponent and then go on to a classic high-noon showdown. It’s all very clever and all extremely funny.

Additional Mini Games

To add to the fun element that the new mode brings, there are now an extra 10 mini-games included in this DLC. Eating corn on the cob (as a monkey!), shaking the hell out of a banana-shooting coconut tree, stopping a rampaging Funzaur using a laser-beaming satellite, keeping Ape TV’s studio afloat by fixing its monkey-busted monitors, assembling a snowman for Clovis, because you just love that dog SO MUCH, putting out your flaming monkey crewmen with a hose…inside the studio, dodging incoming ghosts, blasting aliens with Billy the Lightkid!, taking part in an epic skiing action reel and finally surprising Funzaur before he wakes up!

The games are as simple as they sound, and yet again you will be shaking, spinning, throwing and generally waving your arms like an idiot in order to use your Move Controller. When the competition you face is human, it can all get a bit heated, and you’ll either end up loving or hating your playing partner. Either way, the game is huge fun, and one way to pass a few hours without realising the time flying by.

Graphics and Sound

As this is DLC, the graphics and sound have not really changed since the first release of the game. That said however, they still look and sound as good as they did on the original release. Everything is firmly tongue in cheek, and the game looks good regardless of your age. Cartoon quality graphics and sound really do a game like this justice, and the game cannot be faulted on its presentation.

Value

“The Good, The Bad and The Monkey!” DLC is extremely cheap, offers a further 10 mini games and a new mode.The new mode alone adds a lot of replay value to the game, and the 10 extra mini games bump up that replay value even more. Its a great add-on package that just lets you squeeze a little bit more out of the game for very little money, and it’s worth every penny.
