Children’s title Planet 51 has an interesting concept – set on a planet that resembles 1950s America, it sees the inhabitants (little green men) encountering an alien invader (a human astronaut). Unfortunately, the gameplay of this movie adaptation isn’t so smart.The action mainly consists of trying to drive clunky vehicles around, with limited success. Poorly executed, it’s more than a little wearisome to play.
