A strategic game involving a generic, fun story.
Fossil Fighters uses a standard turn-based battling format, and combines it with the peak if a child's imaginations, dinosaurs! I started this game at 8, beat it after a year, and came back to it 3 years later, and it is still my favorite game. Its story leaves room for exploration and adds suspense with the digging element. Your goals change throughout the game, from perfecting battle strategy, to collecting vivosaurs. After that, you reach the stage of "gotta catch em all"! This game provides endless replay fun and plenty of postgame, side missions, and a fresh sequel; Fossil Fighters: Champions.
New concept? I dont think so!
This game looks pretty promising but the concept of digging up fossils and bringing them back to life was done by the two Spectrobe games. Those games were fun but the first Spectrobe game was a bit monotonous at times because it just seemed to drag on and on and the second one seemed to work out the kinks by making it more 3D. This game seems to have 3D graphics at all times which is a plus so in that aspect it is one step ahead of the first Spectrobe game which is where it lead to being boring at times. Overall the Spectrobe games are enjoyable because of the fresh idea of digging up monsters and bringing them back to life which is where this game will succeed. However, in order for Fossil Fighters to stand out, it has to bring something new to the table with the fossil digging and battle systems, or else in will just go completely under the radar. In conclusion, Fossil Fighters is another member to this fossil reviving game family which will end up giving titles such as Pokemon and Dragon Warrior Monsters a run for their money.
A solid game for kids but not Pokemon
Back when I lived in Canada I worked at a game magazine. I was head of the Ds department. So one day I was supposed to give a review for Pokemon diamond but one of my friends begged me to trade games. So I did and I got fossil fighters.I thought I was screwed. Then I found out this game is decent. I let my son play and I asked him what would you give it. He said an 8. I played for five hours and decided it was a 6.5. Then I asked my son why did he give it and eight. He said the story is cheap knock off but the the game play is a very good mix of Pokemon and final fantasy. He also said the graphics are bad even for the Ds and the soundtracks pretty good. So I raised it to a 7.25 but I didn't have that so I gave it a seven. A problem I saw was how little I could explore. I also saw how much of a rip off this game is of Pokemon I recommended you to get Pokemon but if you don't like that game or love Dinosaurs then the game is perfect for you.
Fossil fighters rulez!!!
Fossil Fighters was a very fun game. I very much enjoyed playing this game. Anybody who's into the pokemon rpgs i garantee you'll love playing this game. The graphics were probably the best i've ever seen in any rpg. I went for a day non stop trying tobeat this game. I did! But this game was probably the best i've played in a long time! I give 2 thumbs up to the people who made this game! THis game was pretty challenging in some points but it just depends on which vivosaurs you use, train, raise, and battle with. This game can go on forever, because after you beat the game you have to get all of the vivosaurs such as Dynal, Raptin, Duna, Frigasaurus and ignosaurus, the legendaries and let's not forget the one on the game cover, T-rex!!!!! He rulez!!! You can find him out in parchment desert. For Duna, Raptin, and Dynal youcan get them after you beat the game. You go to the teleporter and find them on the ship, once you beat them they give their vivosaur to you. For ignosaurus you go to Fossil Stadium common room, saurhead will be there, beat him 3 times he gives you ignosaurus, you can only do this once you beat the game. For Frigisaurus you go to BB base and go to the highest part until you see rex and the gang, beat them 3 times and they give you Frigisaurus. I hoped i helped!!
I would a little bit more than moderately recommend this. I would not say it is a waste of your money. It is actually a good role-playing strategy game. First you have to do the most difficult part clean it. It is hard to try to clean it without really breaking it, but that is okay. I say its addicting but sometimes gets boring. You fight a vivisaur and its hard. Overall I think its good though. If you have spare money and you have a ds you could get this. You have to be a good role playing game fan to love this. It also includes lots and lots of strategy. People keep saying negative things about this but I really disagree!!! In my opinion I think you should really get this game! I goodly recommend this video game and that is really all I have to say...
Fossil Fighters is an awesome dinosaur game!!!!!!!
Last year in August, my friend got this game for his birthday. I asked him if he liked it and he said yes. 4 months later, I got the game. Even though the price is cheap, the game is awesome! It is cool to mix up prehistoric, fossils, dinosaurs, and battling on the nintendo Ds system. If you want to know how to get legendary dinosaurs if you have this game,ask me!
prehistoric trauma....GONE!! LOVE IT!!
well, i regret not getting it when you had the ability to get the shirt with it!!
this game is #1 on my list, and i have about 200 hours on my ....first copy.
i was pretty mad when i lost it, i loved that game like a son
i used to had dinosaur games.... reason: dinosaur king. this game makes me feel more open to the more "natural prehistory" section of games. worse is that i judged this game by it's name (book by cover, same thing) and i missed out on a big deal with it! this game supasses all in my book, i've played the demo 80-something too many times for me NOT to be addicted! I plan on re-buying it, this game is so worth it. now some who grade like "it's bad because of the graphics" are there for vision. i'm here for quality. and the graphics may be choppy, but this is the first game i've seen by RED, so i expected that, so i don't complain.
overall: THIS GAME IS THE BEST!!!
This is a really good game for kids and especially for fans of games like Pokemon. Besides the extremely difficult end the game is fun and is a good buy.
A medium game
Fossil fighters is an average game. The only thing I like about is the battle system. I've beaten the game(three times actually) and now all I do on it is develop new strategies for battle, since I have all the vivosaurs. Even so, I never actually test out most of these strategies. After a few weeks, I was already done with this game. The first play-through of this game was tough, and the story was sort of good. The second time I played through, I was able to create a better, more balanced team. Winning the fights were a snap the second time, and the story was nothing new. The final boss on this game is extremely easy, in fact, several other bosses before the final were twice as hard. So, over-all, Fossil fighters is an average game for people who like strategy, and if you don't, you won't want this game. It isn't the same "Spam a move over and over agian" game like pokemon. Without strategy, you'll find this game extremely hard.
very good play agian nad agian.
this game is my favriote.i cant wait for the new won i im going to pre order it.the game is so exciting. the greatest.
