This is one of the worst games ever released on the PS2. Horrible graphics, crummy storyline, sad controls. Its really bad, SERIOUSLY. Its pretty much "create your own pokemon", just a lot worse than you'd think. Its games like this that makes it obvious they're pretty much trying to force you to buy a PS3 and give up on PS2 forever

Minigames, minigames, minigames, maybe it IS for a kid, but adults will find it shallow, restrictive, and random. This game is so mixed-up it is like it embodies the very traits of the monsters it is based on! It doesn't take itself too seriously, thankfully! Kids will no doubt, more likely than not, find it fun, but THIS is not high enough standard for a full time gamer, like me! Thank you, Gamefly! I don't have to make a blind purchase of this game!

Taken for its intended market, this is a potentially great kids' game. Fun plot, zany characters, lots to do. They will likely learn a little bit along the way, but it's not heavy-handedly "educational".

For an adult looking for a "building" game, the repetitive mini-games get old really fast and the ability to build your own parts does not open up very fast. I'd recommend Banjo-Kazooie: uts and Bolts (yes, the silly content filter won't let me type the name of that game!) as a dozen times better.
