I was a bit skeptical of this game when I first got it, but am enjoying it immensely. It's got a ton of variety while remaining quite easy to pick up and play for someone of all ages. In it, you create monsters to go fight other monsters. It sounds a bit repetitive, but the minigames that let you create brand new monster parts are pretty fun and challenging. Then, the reward comes with making your own new monster with your parts! It's a very enjoyable game!

I thought this game would be lame but, I was totally wrong. It's like a beginners edition of an RPG. You defeat monsters to find ingredients. You combine the ingredients (through 12 different mini-games) to create parts to build a more powerful monster. The number of ingredients you can collect seems almost endless, as does the parts that you can create with them. Don't expect a very robust storyline though.
I thought this would be a game that I sat down to play for a day and would send back. I played for 2 hours one night - then learned the next day that I was addicted to it. At the very least, you can rent the game...figure out where to buy it later. :)
The downside of it is that it is not a very long game. You're looking at maybe 15-20 hours. However, with the many possible combinations of items, you can replay it a few times, I'm sure.
