The realIn Monster Racers, players embark on a quest that will take them around the globe in search of monster breeds to train, nurture and race. Throughout their journeys, players build lasting friendships with new allies, and encounter daunting challenges from a bevy of rival trainers. The real fun comes from capturing wild monsters in their native habitats. As the player progresses, he or she can explore different regions, venture into secret habitats and discover more adventures. The game's race courses are filled with challenging obstacles that test both the players' and monsters' skills in controlling speed, jumping ability, and reaction time. With enough courage, skill and practice, players can make it to the greatest race in the world, the "Super Cup." Using the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, players can join up to three other trainers to compete in race tournaments or to capture new monsters on safari. [Koei] Expand

  1. The track variety could be better, but there's a good bit to see in the world of Monster Racers. Online tournaments, single-card multiplayer, and trading all add real value to an already fun package.
  2. The campaign adventure is a colorful and exuberant affair. There's a lot to explore, and the 2D racing and the monster-rearing elements quickly become the most addictive aspects of the game.
  3. The racing is repetitive and boring but the monster-collecting and presentation make up for that. [July 2010, p.65]

    While Monster Racers is an enjoyable way to while away a car trip or fill the time between longer, more substantial games, it is ultimately an inessential addition to most game libraries.
  5. It’s too bad there’s so little variety, because this could’ve been a great game.
