    Overall, the game is fantastic. It’s fun for solo play and is even better when working in co-op. I’ve poured hours into the game and have still not completed every possible task available. There’s so much replayability and it’ll have you craving for more Yo-kai madness… or maybe a Yo-kai is making you think that. Regardless, the game is definitely fantastic and I’d highly recommend adding it to your 3DS’s library.

    While its rinse and repeat Diablo-lite gameplay can get a little repetitive after extended play, there’s no denying how much fun it is to return to the world of Yo-kai Watch. Whether playing solo or via local or online co-op, Level-5 has taken all the hallmarks of the series and made it even more accessible to newcomers and seasoned monster hunters. A fine way to see off the series on 3DS, and proof the Yo-Kai series is strong enough to tweak its formula with a spin-off and still maintain that quintessential Japanese magic.

    Yo-Kai Watch Blasters never manages to shake off that minigame feel, but its core gameplay, though shallow, is fun. Don’t go in expecting anything too deep (or expecting to go anywhere beyond the town of Yo-Kai Watch 2), and Blasters is an enjoyable enough way to pass the time.

    The game is repetitive and the gameplay too bland. Only recommended to big fans of Yo-Kai Watch.

    Watch Blasters has some good ideas, but it ends up feeling repetitive and wearing out a concept that could’ve pushed the series a little but further.

    Its approach to the series remains simple and intuitive, with a good use of the 3D component. Unfortunately its tutorial segments are too long and cumbersome, the game is too blatantly based on the Ghostbusters movie license and its low level of difficulty renders the game's tactical component rather irrelevant.

    It’s a shame but Yo-Kai watch Blasters could have been a good game, but it’s let down by a lack of variety in what it offers in itself and against its predecessors.

The gameplay seems very simple and repetitive at first, but I am here to tell you that there is an incredible amount of depth to this game. The main story takes probably around 8-10 hours to beat, and it's honestly quite underwhelming; but this game isn't good for its story and its main campaign; this game is mostly postgame content. There is a massive system of equipment, hundreds of monsters to collect and use, and plenty of bosses to learn the ins and outs of. This game is not the pinnacle of game design, but the amount of content more than makes up for it. Expand

    A very good game that has exciting gameplay with a high skill ceiling in not only strategy, but also in the gameplay itself. This game offersA very good game that has exciting gameplay with a high skill ceiling in not only strategy, but also in the gameplay itself. This game offers perhaps the largest amount of playtime of any Yo-Kai Watch game, even when compared to the beast of content that is Yo-Kai Watch 3. If you get the impression that the gameplay is repetitive, it's understandable, but false. The game offers many different scenarios, and if those get boring you can simply try a different Yo-Kai who is bound to have a different playstyle. The progress you make in the game on the way to making your Yo-Kai the best they can be will always feel worth it in the end. All of that, and that isn't even to mention the massive post-game that introduces so much to the game, the music, the witty character dialogue, and just how invigorating the boss fights are. This game has so many upsides to it that I wouldn't be able to fit it all here, so I highly recommend you buy this game to experience for yourself.

    Side note: my exact rating would be a 9.5-7.
