Critic Reviews for Nexomon

Clearly a clone of Pokémon, albeit a very well done one. With a large world to discover and hundreds of Nexomon to catch there's plenty to play if your monster breeding thirst is not yet placated.

Design gripes aside, Nexomon is a decent Pokémon clone. It's a bit rough around the edges, but if you're hankering for a cheap and cheerful creature-based RPG, it's not a bad pick.

Nexomon is a solid Pokémon clone with charming monster designs and technical flaws that lacks the heart of the original.

4 / 5.0

Overall Nexomon on Switch is much better served in the sequel Nexomon:Extinction, than in this version. Whilst having its moments of fun and slightly addictive gameplay, it is still at its core a mobile game that's really best enjoyed in smaller 5-10 increments rather than a proper hour or two of normal playtime. It was disappointing to see that no effort was made to update the game from the mobile with the exception of the removal of micro transactions. At £9.99 it is not the most expensive game and would be good for those of you who want to scratch that monster catching itch before the new Pokemon games come out.

‎Nexomon brings us the first part of this saga for the first time to consoles, in which we can participate in challenging combats thanks to its tight gameplay, which hooks from the beginning of the game. With a good technical section and an interesting story.‎

I hope Nexomon continues to perform well and grow from here. The developers really do have an opportunity to take what they've done across the first two titles and build it into "the alternative Pokémon", especially considering that both Yokai Watch and Dragon Quest Monsters seem to be on the wane. Nexomon isn't quite the game that its (console) predecessor is, but it's still a warm, comfortable, and amusing experience, and while it can be frustrating at times to try and catch all 300+ monsters on offer, they're so ultra-cute that you'll do it - and love it - anyway.

If you’re tired of Pokemon hunting and want something different and refreshing, then Nexomon would be something that you would enjoy. It’s a game with heart and passion. It’s a game that despite it going against one of the biggest game franchise, it can stand on its own.

Players looking for a short romp that doesn’t overstay its welcome will want to pick up this title before tackling the sequel, which has many gameplay improvements that would be sorely missed when returning to the original.
