  1. Monster Lab has a ton of monster-making potential, but poor controls ruin this experiment.

    Maybe a must-own for Tim Burton fans, but definitely a rental for everyone else. [Holiday 2008, p.88]
  3. Though an amicable attempt, Monster Lab is plagued by a number of issues. Monster creation falls flat, not feeling truly creative or interesting. Mini-games are excessive and as one would expect, entirely Wii Remote feature-based. Battling is unfulfilling as well because getting into a fight does nothing but net creation parts that are neither unique nor hard to come by.
  4. Because there are not so many new RPGs for the Wii, some of the genre-fans will be fond of Monster Lab! The combination of mini games, combats and the creating of monster-parts are able to fascinate gamers!
  5. Monster Lab is a surprisingly deep game in regards to the creation aspects and battling system.
  6. It might be a jack of all trades and master of none, but that’s better than sucking.
