  1. Game Informer
    Everything about this title makes the previous installments seem archaic in comparison. [Nov 2001, p.100]
  2. Monster Rancher 3 rocks. That’s all that needs to be said. However, just to clarify, this game has really satisfying gameplay that should please even the most jaded gamer.
  3. The strength of this game is in its replay value. You can lose hours upon hours of your life simply checking your CD/DVD collection for monsters to add to your encyclopedia.
  4. An extremely solid game that takes the series in a promising direction.
  5. Whether you're new to the series, thoroughly sick of it, or can't wait to get back to raising monsters, this game has the capability to surprise, amaze and enthrall you.
  6. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    I can't stop playing the game. I'm hopelessly addicted. [Nov 2001, p.155]

    Delivers where it counts, with the deep breeding simulation that fans of the series have grown to love.
