    However, Fossil Fighters: Champions proves to be a worthy successor to the original Fossil Fighters. [Nov 2011, p.83]

    The fossil-cleaning mechanic is fun and the battles are decent enough, so if you love dinsoaurs - or just want more Fossil Fighting - this game will likely not dissappoint. Otherwise, you'd do well to save your money for an actual Pokemon or Dragon Quest game.

    Fossil Fighters: Champions is very similar to its predecessor, but doesn't offer a significant improvement.

    Fossil Fighters: Champions certainly succeeds at mimicking Pokémon while still creating its own brand and style of gameplay. However, the biggest fault of the game is not in the new material but that it doesn't succeed in pulling off the areas that are similar to Pokémon such as creating endearing creatures and appealing to a wide variety of gamers.

    Fossil Fighters: Champions might be worth digging up, but it's too similar to its predecessor to be a significant find.

    We've played worse Pokemon knock-offs over the years. [Christmas 2011, p.72]

    For kids with a serious dinosaur affectation, playing Fossil Fighters: Champions will feel like discovering a buried treasure, and there's something to be said for a monster fighting RPG that doesn't require the same time commitment as the Pokemon games. For everyone else though, there are better monster battling RPGs out there, published by the same company, and once you've played them it's hard to see imitators, even ones with dinosaurs, in the same light.

    Fossil Fighters: Champions is too derivative and too stuck on the source material to really stand out. Instead of bringing us something clever and entertaining, we're instead saddled with what feels like leftovers from the first game.

You hunt for fossils, clean them, AND BATTLE OTHER PEOPLE WITH DINOSAURS!!!!! Now the story is ok, the graphic are a little pix-elated, but nothing distracting, and there is a large variety of vivisaurs to battle with. If you like dinosaurs, and rpg, you will like this game.

    Although it's pretty similar to the original, Fossil Fighters: Champions is still a fun experience that offers a much better story this timeAlthough it's pretty similar to the original, Fossil Fighters: Champions is still a fun experience that offers a much better story this time around. However, it does take a few steps back win it comes to art direction and stage design and difficulty. Full Review »

The story is, admittedly, cliché and predictable as **** but you don't see those complaints about Pokémon, do you? Considering all the bad Pokémon ripoffs out there,(*coughDragonQuestMonstersJokercough*) it's good that this one keeps somewhat original with good characters and gameplay. Full Review »
