Imagine you've just discovered a brand new planet, and you're about to claim it in the name of the United States, only to find that not only is this planet populated, it looks exactly like Earth, and the inhabitants are dumbfounded at your confusing presence. Would you go nuts and run away?

That's Chuck for you, the US astronaut that stars in the new animated film Planet 51, and who you control throughout a large part of this game of the same name. You must help Chuck find his spaceship so he can go home, using the help of new found alien friend Lem.

This isn't just a simple movie tie-in either. As well as exploring the best parts of the comedy cartoon, Planet 51: The Video Game also expands on the story and universe by adding new characters, environments and vehicles that you can only find on a console.

You can explore a vast world that closely resembles familiar locations on planet Earth - in an alien stylee. Explore on foot or take advantage of the many vehicles around town to get from place to place, engaging in missions that range from police chases to cutting grass to driving angry gorillas to the circus. It's slightly nutty, this game.

A multiplayer version of the game can be played with friends, be they alien or otherwise, and from there you can engage in head to head races all throughout locations found in the single player mode. It's out of this world!
