Conclusion: Fossil Fighters: Champions might feel too familiar for some Pokemon fans, and it's definitely not as deep or impressive as Nintendo's world-famous monster-collecting franchise. Nevertheless, when it's taken for what it is, Champions is a lot of fun, and is sure to please any gamer who has ever fantasized about having his or her own pet dinosaur.

Excerpt: The original Fossil Fighters did a fine job of addicting players to the task of unearthing prehistoric creatures to do battle in obvious but effective emulation of Pokémon . The game may not have set the sales charts afire, but that didn't stop Red Entertainment from crafting a sequel, which may become the final RPG Nintendo publishes for the DS in North America.
Excerpt: Fossil Fighters has no right to be good. It’s anchored by unoriginality; it mostly rehashes territory well-worn by other monster-collecting RPGs. Yet somehow it still manages to be not just entertaining, but an addictive guilty pleasure. Players take on the role of a fossil fighter, a kid digging up and reviving dinosaur remains so he can battle against other trainers’ “vivosaurs” in hopes of becoming a Master Fighter.
Conclusion: Não dá para jogar “Fossil Fighters: Champions” e não se lembrar de “Pokémon” – até porque a ideia principal é similar: juntar bichos e se tornar o melhor dos treinadores. As batalhas, apesar de fáceis, possuem elementos bacanas e tudo ficaria melhor não fossem algumas quedas de frames que ocorrem ao tentar reviver dinossauros inteiros. Tem se tornado comum ver jogos no qual o principal objetivo do jogador é reunir diversos monstros.
Pros: Pontos Positivos, Reviver fósseis, Elementos de batalha
