This Game Hasn’t Mastered Anything

Cheat Code Central
25 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Add Master of the Monster Lair to the huge list of video game disappointments. This is a title that had a lot of potential; starting out, I really loved the new ideas that the game offered. But the more time I spent with it, the more I realized that this is not a game aimed toward a traditional crowd. It’s extremely dumbed-down, easy to play, and slow-paced. This game had some really great ideas, but execution was very poor.

A Decent Concept Can't Overcome Generic Gameplay

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: It's your goal to design a dungeon that attracts monsters. Some of these creatures seek a place to sleep, while others are looking for a trash heap to raid. You allow these monsters residency solely because you are going to kill them and loot their corpses for food, money, and items. As it turns out, the concept is far more entertaining than any of the gameplay. The dungeon building process offers no depth, and the combat system is a study in turn-based RPG basics.
