Excellent

Shockingly Entertaining

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.

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

It's okay to a certain point, but it's very repetitive and once you get halfway through the game you can't complete any missions because you get attacked by monsters every minute. It wastes alot of time, I just got impatient and quit.
