Review: Monster Racers (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
25 September 2011
  • Summary: This is two years in a row that I’ve been surprised by a game that looked to be nothing more than a Pokemon clone. Monster Racers effectively takes the basic concept of Pokemon , throws in a competent racing mechanic, and puts it all together in a rather agreeable package. Is it going to sway Pokemaniac’s away from their favorite franchise? Probably not. What it will do, however, is over a few dozen hours of entertainment to those willing to give it a try.

Monster Racers Review

Cheat Code Central
31 August 2011

Similar to Pokemon, but with racing instead of fighting.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Monster Racers is a nice nonviolent alternative to other monster-collection games, like Pokemon or Bakugan. Instead of  kids collecting and fighting monsters, in this game kids "befriend" them and then have a blast racing with them. Also, the storytelling in Monster Racers goes out of its way to make the point that the creatures being collected for competition love running races and are definitely not being forced to do so.

Monster Racers Review

GameSpot
29 June 2010
  • Excerpt: The advent of the Pokemon series in the mid-1990s and the subsequent frenzy of popularity the charming Pocket Monster games have enjoyed ever since have spurred plenty of clones based on young kids battling with collectible critters for fame and fortune. Monster Racers' inspiration is obvious, yet embedded deeply in the game's carbon-copy presentation and revamped concept is a unique element that's strong enough to give the well-trodden genre some new life.
  • Pros: A rad racing twist on Pokemon-style gameplay, Crisp, colorful graphical presentation, Creature raising is addictive
  • Cons: Blatantly rips off a major franchise, Story is phoned in

Galaxy Racers

  • Excerpt: Galaxy Racers c'est l'histoire d'un jeu qui aurait bien fait de ne pas exister. Malheureusement, les évidences les plus flagrantes ne le sont pas toujours dans le domaine du jeu vidéo.
