''In the Eidos booth, one game I wasn't really looking forward to any time with was Monster Lab, because I had no idea what it was. I didn't even look at any screenshots or videos, I just assumed it was another version of Monster Madness and wrote it off. When I sat down to play it I saw a game that was not at all what I expected, and one that I can see myself picking up when it comes out, especially at $39.99.
Instead of a stereotypical beat-em-up featuring a whole bunch of monsters fighting a whole bunch of monsters, the game is a turn-based RPG featuring a huge amount of mini-games that actually matter to the game. You play as a new initiate in the Mad Science Alliance, exploring six different areas and collecting different parts to build and upgrade your monster.''
