Summary: purchased this for my 9 year old grandson, it is a little challenging because he has to really pay attention to the story, but that's a good thing! should keep him interested for a while to come!
Summary: I purchased this game because I'm a fan of the Pokemon series, and this year they didn't release a new game in time for my spring break. Fossil Fighters has filled the void. I will admit there are several differences between this and the beloved series, but some of those similarities are pretty cool. For example, not needing to heal your monsters after every battle, and the ability to use methods other than simply battling to make them stronger.
Summary: The humor and storyline of this game are clearly intended for a younger audience, and the graphics for everything other then the battles were fairly crude (though this is greatly improved in the sequel). However, even despite these set backs, the battle system, the system in place for collecting and cleaning fossils and building teams of dinosaurs is a great deal of fun and is unique in a number of ways.
Summary: My 6 yr. old son got this game for Christmas. He is a "struggling reader" and this game had LOTS and LOTS of reading. We assumed it was sort of a tutorial at the start, so I sat with him and read, and read, and read. At first, he was very frustrated with all of the words. As he got to playing, and digging bones and gems, creating dinosaurs, having his first battles, he became more excited. The fossil cleaning is fun, and both my kids cheer when they do a good job.
Summary: When I was a child, I loved dinosaurs. But then I grew up, and you know what? I still love dinosaurs. I'm also a big fan of RPGs, including the RPG subgenre of "monster-raising game". On top of all that, I'm a huge fan of the Pokemon games. So, every time I see a dinosaur-themed game that resembles pokemon, I can't help but want to try it.
