    One heck of a game. [Feb 2002, p.100]

    An inexplicably rewarding, utterly bizarre, and impossible-to-put-down battery-sucking gem that feels like it was born to live on the Game Boy Advance.
  3. A very shallow game, but there's just something about it that keeps you going. I really felt compelled to work my monster WAY up the ranks, to see what new creatures I could unlock next.
  4. A thoroughly addicting experience unique to the Game Boy Advance that can be enjoyed by die-hard fans of the series and newcomers alike.

    Looks good, has plenty of tactical depth.

    The Monster Rancher series is just fantastic. Once a classic, always a classic.

    Very awesome! The fact that you use codes instead of cds is just plain sweet. It makes it a little too easy though. Put in your friends name, Very awesome!
