While initially charming, I found Monster Prom didn't have the right elements to have any staying power for me. The charming characters, the multiplayer design of the game, and how it tries to engage players outside of the game are all great additions to the dating sim genre. However, the disjointed dialogue, repetitive nature of subsequent attempts, humour, and music all drag Monster Prom down a little too much for me.
If you are ready to go back to high school, but just because this time it might really be the end of the world, then Monster Prom is worth a selling your soul for
Monster Prom is as much a dating sim as Scary Movie is a horror film. It follows the patterns of a normal dating sim and completely flips everything upside down. The beauty of a game like this is that anyone that loves and hates dating sims can find value here.
Monster Prom is fun alone, but even more so in a group, with quirky characters that couldn't be more different from each other to fight over, and it's monstrously hilarious to boot.
