    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.

I was pleasantly surprised with the first game and the second game only expands on the first with better combat, a more enriching story and a larger selection of dinosaurs to choose from. The only thing keeping it from a 10 is its cliche story. Full Review »

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 »
