Good

Entertaining but repetitive .

Very good concept. Build a monster. Fight said monster. Continue on to make a better monster and fight tougher monsters. There are little minigame that you do to find parts and create monster parts. While the mini games are fun they do get very repetitive very quick. I played it for about 4 hours and I've had my fill of it. There might be more later in the game, but I didn't feel compelled to find out. For a 6-11 year old this game might work very well. However, for me it didn't go the distance. Fun, but too much rinse, wash, repeat.

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.

this game was really fun until i beat the game, without any quests it has a low replay ability, but besides that it is awesome, i hope you at least give it a try
