Anyone else pick up PixelJunk Monsters yet? This game is one of the best games on the PSN Store. Super fun, totally addictive, and it even supports remote play on the PSP.

Check out this 1up video:

If this video doesn't make you want to buy the game, then nothing will.

Wait, was this a joke or are you serious that this is supposed to look awesome? all I saw was a video of some shitty little game with a parade of little things meandering around.

IGN reviews PJM and gives it an 8.5

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/848/848261p1.html

7.5 Presentation
Very sharp. Almost overly simple, but looks and feels tight.

7.0 Graphics
Once again, Q-Games opts for a simplistic art style, but it works well here with vivid, crisp colors and cute animations.

7.5 Sound
Music is calming and catchy, but Monsters could have used more song variety.

8.5 Gameplay
Addictive and fun. A nearly-perfect blend of casual mechanics and in-depth strategy.

7.0 Lasting Appeal
Over twenty levels to enjoy. Unchanging enemy patterns may be disappointing to some, but engrossing gameplay makes up for it.

8.5 OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average
