    I think this game is alot better than Pokemon, to be honest...although I love them both. This is an awesome game...definitely worth adding to your GBA SP Library.

    Kind of ironic that some criticize it as a Pokemon ripoff, when in fact Pokemon essentially lifted its entire "recruit and train monsters" system from the original Megami Tensei games on the NES and SNES (of which Demikids is a side-story). It is unfortunate, though, that the formerly rich and well-developed demon negotiation system is so limited in these games.

    It's great in a way that there are so many different demons. Heaps better than pokemon.

    In all realism, although a terrific game, it lacks some of the more user-friendly aspects of Pokemon, Demikids is a challenging RPG for Hardcore gamers, but if you do not like RPGS, or are not a Die-Hard gamer, Pass this one by.

    Well, i don't think it's as good as Pokemon, but it is very creative. The creatures are more detailed, but when it comes to the way the battle system is set up, it's not very easy to read.

    This game is horrible and makes pong look like The greatest RPG ever. I mean when will these poor fools learn that the pokemon fad died years ago, and now all those kids that played pokemon are dead due to frequently being beat up, by everyone.

    DemiKids has a finer pedigree than most, but the rest of us are still waiting for these things to grow a spine. A curiosity at best. [Nov 2003, p.91]
  2. Game Informer
    DemiKids (both Light and Dark versions) are what the last Pokemon entires should have been... If you have any affinity for the GBA Pokemon games, DemiKids is a must-buy. [Sept 2003, p.126]

    The game’s storyline and Demon collecting aspect more than make up for these SNES shortcomings, providing gamers with an entertaining, albeit dark RPG.
