  • Summary: Remember when you though monsters were lurking in every dark corner of your house? Well, you were right: Every CD YOU OWN CONTAINS A MONSTER. Every PC CD, ever music CD and every game CD each has a monster living inside. Use Monster Rancher to safely release these monsters into a virtual environment where YOU'RE THE MASTER, TEACH YOUR MONSTER ATTACK MOVES. Capture your monster (on a memory card) and take him to a friend's house for some HEAD TO HEAD FIGHTING ACTION. We dare you to find and train your ultimate fighting machine! Expand

  1. If you don't value your time to any great extent besides playing video games, give this gem a try. If it hooks you, it hooks you big time!
  2. A superb game. There is really nothing like it on any platform. With an infinite replay value and immersing gameplay, it keeps you coming back for more and more.

    An incredibly original title that also happens to be a barrel of fun.
  4. You'll actually feel a loss if (and when) your star monster passes on. You might start to relate better to your monster than to actual people.
  5. Make weird customizable beasts, then let them kill each other. [Jan 2004, p.188]

    One of the most unique concepts to any game. U use your gaming library to make better monsters. It was very difficult however. I like it but the replay ability was not high. Expand
