Summary: Is not entirely boring but is not one I would purchase again. In battle it like playing rock, paper, scissors. Customizing your monsters is neat, but there are not many choices when trying to design your monsters. Gameplay is slow. Getting powered up during the game is difficult. Getting extra additions to design your monster further is difficult. Concoctions are fun to mix to give your monster more powers. This is game is really not for older kids or adults.
Summary: OK, for me personally, not too exciting (waaaay too little challenge), but it's not really meant for 30-something moms. It's meant for their elementary and middle school boys (and girls). My preschooler is too young to play but keeps having me play so he can watch the monsters fight. The "fights" are basically a variation of rock-paper-scissors, and the monsters actions look like little kids "fighting". Sometimes, one monster will hurt the other by farting.
Summary: As a big fan of monsters, and remembering an old game where you could build and fight monsters, I bought this game sight unseen. A slight mistake, as I think I am a bit outside of the age demographic for this game now. You start in the laboratory, and have a fledgling monster to work with that looks a bit like Shrek. From there you can add a variety of different types of spines, spikes, tattoos, ears, etc. Kind of like a Mr. Potato Head, but more interactive.
Summary: Well, first off let me give credit to the developers. The actual product is quite polished and I didn't have really much difficulty on the technical side of things, it's just that I don't really like the concept and the gameplay. First off, I am not a big fan of Monster games, if you are, this might be a nice choice for you. As I am not, I was immediately wary of the game. However, I decided to give it a shot, and didn't really like it.
