  • Summary: Fossil League follows the epic journey of boy action-star Taiga as he travels back in time to historic Jurassic eras to recover his stolen and most personal treasure, the "Big Mother" fossil. Fossil League (DTC) offers classic turn-based RPG play with players adventuring as Taiga to battle, tame and collect realistic 3D dinosaur models, each with their own special powers. A "dinopedia" gives players true dinosaur facts as they engage in fun mini-games, utilize special attacks and experience cool archeological digs. Fossil League (DTC) allows players to adventure across 6 historic dinosaur eras to collect and battle more than 100 different 3D dinosaurs, each with their own effects. Players utilize the dual screen capabilities of the Nintendo DS to experience archeological digs and collect as many dinosaurs as possible to utilize wireless multiplayer mode for up to two players to compete in the Dinosaur Grand Prix at the end of the adventure.

  1. Nothing amazing, but not without cheeky charm. [Apr 2007, p.70]
  2. Despite the game's less-than-stellar visuals, budding paleontologists and Pokémon fans alike should find an enjoyable and lengthy romp through time in this handheld adventure.

    The game is fairly solid, and it's a game that deserves to not be left in the Stone Age.
  4. A good bet for your entry into the RPG genre, or if your parents will only buy you educational games. Otherwise, it’s decent, but nothing you haven’t played before and probably better.
  5. Fossil League is essentially a Pokemon clone that's pretty decent on the surface but lacks the depth, features and polish of the original monster-battlers. [May 2007, p.85]
  6. We really wish you could battle using multiple dinos at once, but in the end, the combination of paleontology and Pokemon won us over.
  7. Perfectly competent in execution, yet lacking that spark that makes us visibly excited to cough up yet more money for almost exactly the same Pokémon game as the last forty-four when Diamond and Pearl land over here.

    Awsome! My latest Dino is Carnotaurus and I'm on middle cretacious. This is an awsome game with a mix of pokemon and education.

    This game is fun! I beat it in 12 hours, I have T-Rex, and I completed my Dinodex!
