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.
Similar to Pokemon, but with racing instead of fighting.

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.
Conclusion: With a wide variety of courses, players will have the advantage of choosing which monster is best suited for each race.The high point of a race is when a monster unleashes its "Turbo" skill.
