To start my review, I will talk about the design and features of the game.
If you grew up watching Sesame Street, you will be familiar with the characters immediately. The game has all the familiar faces including Grover, Cookie Monster and Elmo. Alongside these very well known characters, you will find a whole lot more during the game. The game starts by you celebrating birthday of new member of the Sesame Street gang, called Marco. Marco is seen with Elmo and Cookie Monster, and they plan on giving him the best birthday of his life.

Every mini game is distinct in nature and they feel different from each other. The best thing about Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster is that it keeps giving you different mini games to play, your never really stuck with a single game, which keeps things fresh and you never get bored. Sesame Street: Once Upon a Time proves that Kinect is a controller that can be used by anyone, no matter what their age or belonging.
