Variety Reviews Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals

Review by Tom Chick:

"Disney launched its answer to "Pokemon" last year with "Spectrobes," a sci-fi themed Nintendo DS game about flying around the galaxy, digging up fossils, reviving them and using the resultant creatures to fight monsters. The game's more descriptive Japanese title said it all: "Fossil Super-Evolution Spectrobes." Now comes the inevitable sequel, which improves the original game considerably by adding better combat, sharper graphics and deeper online features. The Mouse may just have a viable kids franchise on its hands."

The story is too old to be commented.
