I'm not quite sure what my expectations were for Monster High but whatever they were MH fell short by by a lot. On the one hand the art design was pretty good on the other hand it was wasted on a game you could beat in less than an hour. The entire game consisted of you running errands for every "ghoul" in school. That's your only objective, be nice to as many people as you can and gain popularity by doing whatever they tell you, which only ever included delivering items between characters. The only thing to do besides that was to go to class to play the mini games (that only had 5 levels and could never be played again once you beat) that required zero thought, effort, or skill. The create-your-own-monster feature was lacking in that they only give you 2-4 choices for each category with the exception of the speciec which gave you a rousing 6. All of which were based off of the cannon monsters (darn I wanted to be a dragon) The entire game took place in the span of a day and once it was over there was nothing else to do but keep watching the ending cut scene.
The game was okay I guess. The whole game you're focused on doing tasks for all the monsters in the game and how well you can do them, It's a popularity contest basically and honestly I was expecting more from it. Maybe a better storyline, game play or mini games could have made it better but it was still entertaining for the most part. This is definitely a one time game for me though.

Rent this first and beat it before you spend the money.. I was actully enjoying thi game for the first few hours.......after that i beat it less then 12 hours and once you beat it there is nothing you can do... char.s wont talk to you, you cant touch anything other then your locker amd there is nothing you can do....
The game's nicely done; needs improvement on camra angels and touch controls though. People might think its too short, but for me it's a casual game that easy to put do if something important comes up. Overall, it's just something fun to play.
