  1. While raising monsters can still be absorbing, Monster Rancher DS looks and feels a bit too old fashioned for its own good.
  2. It's nicely made, just rather dull. [Oct 2010, p.64]
  3. There's ample variety in terms of what you can have your monsters do, but as the player, you'll be doing a lot of watching and waiting. The game isn't broken in any way; it just isn't all that engagin

    While it may sound cool, Monster Rancher is repetitive, and as a result the gameplay can get rather dull.
