Spectrobes Origins

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Spectrobes has made it to the Wii thanks to Disney Interactive Studios. Spectrobes Origins is an action adventure hack and slash role playing video game that also includes monster raising. Before you ask, this is not a Pokemon clone. Spectrobes Origins is in 3D for one thing, and the monsters come from artifacts that are discovered. The mini game to free these artifacts from 3D cubes of rock is one of the best parts of this Wii game.
