Summary: I've never been much of a Pokemon fan. Given, the gameplay is quite addictive and I've played a few of the games but the monsters you collect are just too cutesy for me. Which is why I've been a fan of the Dragon Quest Monsters series and the Shin Megami Tensei series.
Summary: DQM Joker is an excellent take on monster RPGs. I'm not a big fan of the traditional random encounter battles that so many other games have implemented, so I appreciated the fact that this game let you actually go out and be the hunter.
Summary: This is pretty much the type of dragon quest game I've wanted to play since I could use a healee in dragon quest 4 back in the NES days. Its pretty simple, and a bit too easy, but I won't hold that against it. Very much a grind fest because all you end up wanting to do is create more monsters!
Summary: Unlike a lot of other reviewers, this is my first in the DQM series, although after reading about the earlier ones, I want to play them. :) I'm an avid gamer, and DQM has to go in my top ten list of all-time favourite games. I love a game with depth and extendability and this has both.
Not a pokemon in sight, but a monster battling game all the same

Summary: I was a little worried when I first thought about getting this game; I knew it had the Dragon Quest name on it, so I thought it should be good. But, from game play descriptions (and my own imagination), I was a little worried I might be buying a slightly more "mature" pokemon game.
