    Managing your deck is nearly as exciting as the battles in its own way. Nabbing new booster packs and busting them open with the touch screen is a simple joy that offers a little joyful suspense every time you acquire new cards.

    Sure, the gameplay is great, but at the same time, it's not the kind of game that you'd want to be caught playing in public for fear of feeling like you belong on a sex offender registry. In other words, the whole rubbing up and down motion is kind of appropriate since, like the action it simulates, it's something you'll most likely want to do in the privacy of your own home.

    A sleeper hit in the making, Monster Monpiece's rich battles and complex strategy elements are unfortunately overshadowed by its tawdry artwork and painful fan service.

    A higher score if we didn't feel a sense of shame rubbing half naked girls to level up.

    Compile Heart has developed a decent game, but few will notice: the cause is the licentious army, shown in every trailer or game's pictures. If we add to this the online slow in matchmaking and an AI deficit, the result is a title with spikes and dips worthy of a roller coaster. However, digging over the hundreds of thousands of breasts and buttocks, the game is there. It's up to you to decide how much and how this erotic outline can slow you down, or push to eventually purchase.

    Surprisingly enough, you won't just shake your Vita trying to undress the girls. Underneath there's some gameplay, and not in a bad shape.

    An interesting card-battler is at the core of Monster Monpiece. Too bad it's surrounded by so much drivel.

    The scores for this game all seem to be revolving around the fanservice. If you aren't bothered by the presentation or the content, then there is an interesting and quite fun game to enjoy here. Expand

    A few hours into the game, and I'm hooked. With the exception of the rubbing (which is but a necessity for leveling up cards), this is a solid card game. The graphics are good, if you're into the chibi stuff. Love the fusion of a card game + game board. Enjoyable game indeed. Expand

    Unfortunately another underrated Vita game. And this, i assume, for the worst reasons. Its obvious that the erotic components o f the game irritated most angry american reviewers. But i think that, if they are allowed only for adults, the auto satisfaction mini game is fun and a real piece of art. The core of the game is a card battle game so fun adictive and well designed that it can be viewed as a comedy version of magic-the gathering or such. The graphics are nice, the soundtrack is epic and it has a progressive story, very naive but engaging. Please: stop majing boicot to the most powerful portable console of history Expand

    There is actually a great card game underneath the provocative artwork and boring dialogue. Players battle their opponent on a 3x7 grid with castles at each end. The goal is to play cards in each of the 3 lanes which advance toward your opponents castle and attack/defend automatically. When your castle is destroyed or you run out of cards, you lose.

    It sounds simple, and it will feel boring for the first few matches, but then you quickly unlock the extra mechanics that make the game more strategic. Cards can have skills and special traits that give players some tactical opportunities instead of simply duking it out with your highest attacking cards.

    There are some really interesting combo mechanics that make your decisions more interesting than just dropping your biggest card in your hand. You have to strategically consider whether you want to play a color combo, fuse two cards to combine their power, defend a lane, or create one powerful lane to push through your opponent's defense.

    First, let me talk about what I don't like about this game. I hate the art style and the drawing of this game. They all look like children. In fact, I hate the who loli culture. If you haven't heard, you have to rub those pictures in a masturbating style to level up your cards. There is no way around it. I don't have any problem with that except that it gets old after a while. And since I don't like the drawing style, I don't really enjoy rubbing them that much. I really really wish they replace those children monsters with curvy, mature, leggy, lustful demons. I prefer more "mature" art style (for example, the girls in Highschool of the Dead). I would rub those sexy legs and perky boobs ALL DAY LONG. It's not a moral thing, it's just different taste in art style.

    Now, the game itself is really addicting. I am sort of biased since I love collecting/card games. Your cards can be evolved like in Pokemon or Dragon puzzle. I am about 5 hours into the game, and I've been trying different strategies with different customized decks. (Haven't touched PVP yet, but it's supported both online or local). I don't want to go into details of the game play since you can find better information elsewhere. I just want to say I am having a blast playing this game even thou I don't like the art style.

    I normally do not do reviews but with all the controversy around this game dragging its score down I felt that I should. Monster Monpiece is a solid card battler/rpg. Honestly I have not enjoyed a card game this much since Yugioh. The battle gameplay itself is kind of like a cross between chess, Duel Masters, and Megaman Battle Network (If that makes sense). Now for the cards themselves a lot of them can be quite perverted but honestly this is a small negative at most. The way you power up cards (First Crush Rub) now that is something else you have to pinch, rub, and poke certain...parts. This feature is kind of cool at first but it does grow repetitive. Moving on the story is something you'll hardly give a damn about but it is long which leads for a very long playtime and you can redo fights so replayability is certainly high. These fights range from mind numbingly easy to holy crap this is impossible. The online seems to run fairly smoothly but only if you can actually find a game. All these elements combine to make a fun and addicting card battler. If you like anime and card games you will probably like this game. Expand

    The first impression was good. It was for me a new take on card-strategy gameplay. I don't mind the erotic part in itself. I actually think erotics fits best on games. The problem comes with after only a short while. First of, the erotic in this game has its problems:
    1. Only women
    2. only white
    3. Some are children

    Now the gameplay gets old pretty fast with the same easy fights and to few cards and abilitys to make you use different strategys. The work to level up characters are frustrating and they don't always become better. You should have a before and after look so you don't "level down" by mistake. The characters that talk are all potrayed in a sexist way and the story is a yawn.

    Long story short. It starts of fun but all its flaws just builds up and destroys the good parts of the game. Do not encourage games like this. They will only keep making sexist and rascist games with mediocer gameplay.
