I've played Monster Rancher 3 (for Ps2), and I think this game is better because 1. Regenerating monsters is easier, 2. You can go exploring, 3. It's easier to earn sertain monsters (Dragon, Durahan, etc.),and 4. Monsters don't die, they can retire or turn into coaches, so you can train your other monsters more effectively.
On the other hand, on Monster Rancher 3 1. food is cheaper, 2. You can battle your rivals more often,and 3. you can train in different places.
They're both good games, but you don't need to use other games to regenerate monsters on MRA 2, and you can take it anywhere. That's good enough for me.

This game is fun, exciting, and easy to learn how to play. I got this for Christmas last year, and I still love to play. Trust me, I have a very short attention span and a complex mind and found this game great.

Pros:

*cool monsters to raise

*tournaments to win

*many secret breeds to unlock

*many tasks to accomplish

*lots of monsters to pick from

*challenging for pro gamers

*enjoyable for untalented gamers

*rules aren't confusing

*good graphics

Cons:

*people talk a lot

*monsters only have 4-5 year life spans

This game is varied so that a variety of people can enjoy. At first it is Ahhh,uhhh, okay. Then once you understand, it becomes great fun.

I had this game in fifth grade and my friend and I shared so much laughter and good memories. This is a good game for anyone, so try it.

I played both Monster Rancher Advance I & II. Certainly, it is neat to enter random sequences of letters and numbers to generate new monsters. The story is reasonable strong although slow paces. Unfortunately, I found the game tedious after a while. The challenge of training monsters wears thin after about the 1ooth time. It is particularly frustrating when your monster is forced into retirement just before completing a battle that would advance the story. Also, the time frame is somewhat unrealistic, I figure that my game lasted about 100 years or so (within the game). Each monster lasts roughly 4 years and it took me about 25-30 monsters to complete the game. Although monsters age your character and other characters in the game do not. I played this through to the climatic battle, and while that was cool I'm not sure it was enough pay-off. If you like doing the same thing hundreds of times, this game is for you. If you like a good story and can tolerate doing the same thing over and over, you might enjoy it too.

This game is sort of like a mix between Monster Rancher 1 and 2. Graphically it is closer to 1 but entertainment value is closer to number 2. There are a lot of add ons in this game such as the ability to create monsters using words or letters you choose. Raising them is pretty straight forward if you have played the series before. During the first and sometimes second monster you raise they will be giving you tips similar to a long term tutorial to get you warmed up to everything. The coaching addition to the game makes for yet another way to boost your monster's power quickly, so that is nice. Breeding is still super fun in this game, and unlocking monsters can be a great process all by itself.

Overall I would say this game is very fun, despite the graphic quality, and eventual monotony once you find a good pattern for training. Fortunately though each monster is a little different, and obtaining the more poweful ones can give the game an extra boost just as you are getting too good at it.

This is one of the GBA's games. First off, if you like any other Monster Rancher game - this is for you.

Really it is pretty impressive having a little over 500 monsters, a whole bunch of special monster that have requirements to unlock and a system by which words generate new monsters.

The story is solid. Monster life span is about 4 years at the most, so it will take you a few to make it through. I did it is 4 but others have done it in as little as 3 and as many as 40. Any level of gamer can enjoy this as it offers difficulty, a curve and, accessibility.

The only big con, is the expedition system in the game. It adds little, expect to help the story.
