Weak

Well maybe I'm just tough on the game or didn't give it enough of a chance, but the overall play is sloppy and concept kinda weak. Maybe I'll wander back by accident and give it another chance but I wouldn't spend more than 8 dollars on this game

This reminded me a bit of my nephew's Scooby Doo game, but with monsters who fight each other in the Final Fantasy style. I didn't enjoy it much at all.

This game has a lot of potential but it really runs you down in the repetition.

Look, I'm a big fan of customizing things and sending them into the wild. What I can't stand is my arm feeling broken after a few hours of this. The graphics are about 4-5 years dated, very large, and a volume that can't stay consistent with cutscenes (turn it up, turn it down, turn it up). The exercises you have to go through to complete tasks to get parts is simple enough but the variance is so low and the actions again repeat.

So are the battles. The first handful are engaging but then it's all the same. Test for weaknesses, attack weaknesses, rinse repeat x1000 and there you have it.

Grab it for a quick weekend of trial play and throw it back. I can't see a reason to even venture towards finishing this one.
