Herbet Shaw from Filmtakeout says:
"Though bright and crisp, the visual effects for the aliens are pathetically formulaic. Then again, they are based directly off of 8-bit arcade games, disparaged these days by kids who can play an up-converted version on their tablets (and glitch-free, of course). Again, 3D is used as an unnecessary gimmick to spend some extra at the theater, especially with the 3D TV becoming all but obsolete in today’s home marketplace. Although the accurate 3D renderings of characters like Pac-Man, Q-Bert, and Donkey Kong have significant throwback value, anyone who never played or didn’t care for these vintage games will not be impressed."
