Even though this is similar to Pokémon, Digimon, and recent dinosaur fighter games of the same style, this is a refreshing new twist on the boring cliche franchises. Indeed you have to collect the title beasts, spectrobes like Pokémon, & you have to break the fossils out of rocks like Dinosaur King & Fossil Fighters, but instead of standing on the sidelines having your Spectrobes fight other Spectrobes to become a master of these creatures, you get to fight alongside your beasts as well as taking care, leveling up, of and training you Spectrobes to combat an evil alien race ready to destroy the universe, the Krawl. Also, each evolution in some way: child Spectrobes act as search party, adults and evolved forms act as warriors. This is basically one of the best RPGs I've played yet.
ok now i do heft to say i definitly definitly do not recommend the first spectrobes for the DS for its battling, but i do heft to say everything else about was good. for this game its almost the same problem until you use the targeting system then its pretty good.
The third game in the Specrtrobes series. A good starter for the specrtobes series, if you have a Wii. You can play as Rallen or his partner Jeena. This game is kinda half 2-player, P2 can take controll of the spectrobe when in battle, or in search mode. The Krawl get kinda ugly as you pogress through the game and, the bosses are fairly easy, until the end. The weapons are my favorite part of the game,(my favorite one is the "Cosmo Blaster"). Overall fun for a short time only.
