Looks like a lot of people slept on this one. It's a really good game, as some of the other topics here suggest.
1) Great customization options for your monsters. 2) Lots of monsters to choose from. 3) Your hero can equip different kinds of weapons, and he has jewels that he can throw around, so he isn't as "boring" as some reviewers have said. It makes sense that he can't use magic since that's what his monsters are for. Otherwise, why bring monsters into battle with you at all? 4) The music is freakin' awesome. Sometimes I'll just leave it playing while I'm studying or relaxing. Especially the music that plays on the menu screen right before you go into battle.
It's not a perfect game I suppose, but what game is?
I'd really recommend it to someone who likes Pokemon mixed with Final Fantasy Tactics and the like.
