  • Summary: Previous games in the Monster Rancher series may have been grander in size or graphical splendor, but Monster Rancher Advance may be the greatest entry yet for a number of reasons.

    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.

    One heck of a game. [Feb 2002, p.100]
  3. A thoroughly addicting experience unique to the Game Boy Advance that can be enjoyed by die-hard fans of the series and newcomers alike.
  4. The familiar graphics, interface and gameplay don't add anything to the series, but if you're looking for a way to raise monsters on the go, it certainly fits the bill.
  5. Nintendo Power

    With rich graphics, fun combat and personalized possibilities, MRA is monstrous fun. [Dec 2001, p.172]
  6. Those already converted to the unique sport of monster breeding will find Monster Rancher Advance to be a fine continuation of the PlayStation series that translates very well to the Game Boy Advance.
  7. Absolutely nothing we haven’t seen before.

    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!
