Monster Rancher 2 is an oldschool, household name of the Playstation : a classic. It is about raising monsters, making them stronger to compete in tournaments, show off to your friends and prove yourself to be a master trainer. You would think it's Pokemon but it's much more than that. It's a deeper type of game wherein you have to plan out your raising methods in order to even come close to a powerful monster. But even if you're not a hardcore player and just want to enjoy the game once in awhile, it will still prove to be a fun game that never grows old.
Genre is a decent grade as it is somewhat unique and original amongst its competition. Image and Sound Quality aren't so great since the game focuses on its Content. Content is average as you can only control your monster, your "real" main character, during a tournament and even there it is minimal. Maturity Rating is a bit low due to the fact that I said earlier : it is hard to raise a superior monster without utilizing a complex raising technique.
Overall, Monster Rancher 2 is a classic game that should not be missed. A Playstation great.
