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!
Monster Lab is a game where you play the role of an apprentice mad scientist. You make parts in you lab and then combine them to make monsters. At first you can only make mechanical parts but through the course of the game you can make biological and arcane parts. The game is good to a point but I find all the mini games for making your parts to be kind of annoying and repetative. Although the mini games are annoying I do tolerate them because if you're really good at them then the quality of the part you make is higher. I'd recomend renting this game but probably not buy it
