  • Excerpt: is one of those games that features a great premise, with plenty of depth and originality, but falls shy of its intended goals by relying on old technology. Of course, we’re not about to condemn a game simply because it utilizes the last-generation PS2 hardware, but in this day and age, it’s difficult to ignore the lacking.

Monster Lab PS2

Testfreaks blog
12 January 2009
  • Summary: The PS3, Wii and Xbox360 are the next gen consoles to own, the games are great and varied, but even with the popularity of these consoles it still amazes me that  games are still coming out for the PS2. Many of the games that come out for the new generation of consoles have a PS2 counterpart, that just goes to show only good things about the PS2, it’s been around for quite a while and it seems like it’s still going strong
  • Pros: Fun and interesting, Replayability, Graphics are decent, Colorful and humorous dialog (corny at times though), Very different from other games out there, Fairly easy for most ages
  • Cons: Lots of loading, Controls can be difficult at times

Monster Lab - DS

  • Excerpt: "It's alive... Alive!" Dr. Frankenstein's famous quote has never been more prevalant in a title than Monster Lab, a new role-playing title that puts you in the shoes of a like-minded mad scientist looking to create life. Much like Frankenstein himself, Eidos' Monster Lab allows you to construct various forms of monstrous life through a combination of limbs, parts, and special attributes. With so many options, what will you end up creating?
  • Pros: Can pick up and play anytime, good cartoon graphics, clear sound

  • Excerpt: "Dr. Stein grows funny creatures, let's them run into the night!" Dieser kurze Textausschnitt aus Helloweens Klassiker "Dr. Stein" verdeutlicht sehr gut, worum es in Monster Lab geht: Ihr bastelt euch eure eigenen Frankenstein-Kreaturen, schickt diese aus in eine düster-abgefahrene Comic-Umwelt und lasst sie gegen andere Monster antreten - um weitere Teile für eure Bastelstunden zu sammeln. Das klingt nicht nur simpel, das ist es auch.

  • Conclusion: Keine Frage, Monster Lab ist kein Top-Titel. Daf�r funktioniert das Spiel an zu vielen Stellen zu eingeschr�nkt. Die irgendwann erm�denden und bockschweren Minispiele, sowie die wenig fordernden 08/15-K�mpfe stellen dem Spielspa� mehr als einmal das Beinchen. Zum Gl�ck macht Monster Lab aber immer genau dann Spa�, wenn es kurz davor steht, im Schmelzofen zu landen. Vor allem an der Gestaltung des Spiels k�nnen sich viele gr��ere Produktionen ein Vorbild nehmen.
  • Pros: Viele Minispiele..., Dynamische Kämpfe..., Perfekte Inszenierung
  • Cons: ... mit ungenauer Steuerung, ... die bald immer gleich verlaufen

Monster Lab

  • Conclusion: Monster Lab racchiude in se un gioco di esplorazione, uno strategico a turni ed una raccolta di minigiochi, un mix strano ma azzeccato. I controlli fanno bene il loro dovere nei vari giochi, gli scontri sono pieni di strategia e per nulla scontati, la veste grafica sembra uscita dalla mente di Tim Burton con personaggi strampalati ma simpatici e il doppiaggio in italiano è molto buono.
  • Pros: Buon mix di diversi generi;, Molto divertente creare i propri mostri;, Scontri online su Wii…;
  • Cons: …ma solo tramite scambio codici amico;, Forse un po’ ripetitivo alla lunga distanza;
