    The game is really fun the game battling is awesome and digging for the fossils the game is somewhat like pokemon but not really if it was supposed to be like pokemon it is the best version they will probably never make a game like this in the pokemon style that will be better so the creator of the game did a really good job. i think that this game was the best DS game I have ever played The game is really fun the game battling is awesome and digging for the fossils the game is somewhat like pokemon but not really if it was supposed to be like pokemon it is the best version they will probably never make a game like this in the pokemon style that will be better so the creator of the game did a really good job. i think that this game was the best DS game I have ever played I have trouble trying to put the game down so if you are buying a DS game Spectrobes is a good game to get. BUY Spectrobes NOW. Expand

    This game is great. Even though you are spending most of your time digging up fossils it's pretty darn good. It's perfect for any yu-gi-oh or pokemon lovers (even though I think that yu-gi-oh is crap).If you are looking for a new game to get then buy spectrobes if you have already purchased all of the pokemon games.

  1. It seems Buena Vista has gone from making lacklustre titles out of much-loved franchises to making a reasonable game from the coldest of franchises. [Mar 2007, p.82]
  2. The game definitely has its roots in the Pokemon world, but provides enough new features to give it its own identity. [Apr 2007, p.86]
  3. Not Pokemon. In fact the very reverse of Pokemon - fixing that which was broken and breaking that which was fixed. D'oh! [Apr 2007, p.67]
