Battling monsters is strategic rather than violent.

Monsters Don't Joke Around

  • Excerpt: The Dragon Quest Monsters series is a long running spin-off that has been around since the original Game Boy. Being that this is the second Monsters title on the Nintendo DS, I found myself going into Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 expecting merely a slightly updated version of the original with maybe a few tweaks and a new story. Instead, I got a streamlined, more polished game with a fantastic monster collection system.
