CGR Undertow – ELEMENTAL MONSTER: ONLINE CARD GAME review for PlayStation 3


Card battle games are one of those genres
that you either love it or you hate it, and I never really loved it. I just never could
get into it. I’ve tried a couple different games, but each one just didn’t really feel
like my cup of tea. So would Elemental Monster: Online Card Game be the one to change my mind
and have me running out for virtual booster packs? Well, no, but it is still a fairly
good card game. The game strangely enough has a storyline
to go with the single player. The people of a land are obsessed with turning ordinary
objects into cards and using their power. The best at this come to be known as masters.
But an evil master unleashes a terrible monster that threatens the world, so you, a young
master, must quest and defeat opponents as you journey and train to defeat the monstrous
beast. What this is, is a series of card battles against progressively harder opponents and
boss characters. The card battles revolve all around match-ups,
just like the NHL playoffs. There are five different colors, each representing a different
element. Blue is strong against red, red against green, green against blue, and light and dark
are opposites. Even from the first move you have to decide. You can have six cards in
a deck, three up and three down. When a card dies, its under then comes into play. The
round starts with you summoning a monster, and your opponent will do the same. Most cards
have two different abilities on them, and some abilities cost energy to use. If you
want to start getting fancy, you can use abilities from other cards, for a price. Some attacks
can do damage to nearby cards, and some have you regenerate health. Defeating all your
opponents cards will have you win the game. The combat is pretty straight forward and
really easy to grasp, but deeper strategies are always there to learn. Defeating characters will earn you new and
more powerful cards, which you can use to make better and better decks, and that is
where some of the fun is. But the rest of the fun is in the online battles. It is great
to have a deck that you are so proud of and take to the online realm and see how weak
you really are. It is very…humbling, to say the least. Elemental Monsters is a solid addition to
the card battling genre. New cards get you excited and defeat is sickening, but so if
the life of a card master.

  1. Terrible review, he first says that this game isn't the one that's going to change his mind about card games, but then I hear no defects that make him think that way. He aso didn't expand on how you can have deeper strategies. According to him the game is too straight forward, but after him saying that about "deep strategies" I'm not sure..

    Plus didn't really like his voice… How do I subscribe to John Lots?
