Weak

Weird

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.

I have been waiting FOR EVER for this game in my Q and finaly got it and have to say was worth the wait. May even buy this one. Really nothing bad with this game besides the mini games ya need to do to make monster parts. That gets old fast but but still not enough to make me not wanna play. Love the the way the game looks too. All in all really enjoying this game, mostly play it late at night when i dont really have to think and just want a good time. Its really kewl how you can make body parts fly off in battle so you can really see if your doing damage or not. Nothing better then chewing a arm off the bad guy lol.

Somewhere a game designer is weeping soft tears into their pillow. This game starts with a great concept, mix and match body parts to create a unique monster, then go fight other monsters. It even uses a rock, paper, scissors system on body parts to add depth to the simple system. Then, apparently, a bunch of marketing execs got their hands on it and said, "Mini-games! kids love mini-games!". After the first few parts I created in the lab I stopped just to avoid playing the mini-games. Then there's the mission structure, "Go do this, get me a sandwich, pick up my dry cleaning..." it's despicable. This should've been a slam dunk, but Eidos crammed in too many low quality mechanics and story points to still have this game be any fun.
