Monster Prom had so much potential and so much to offer that I couldn't wait to tear into it. And on a superficial level, it's an interesting experiment that I thought I would love. Unfortunately, just like the monsters you're courting, once you get to know it it's only a great-looking shell with some fairly rotten insides.

It may take a few tries to discover how to land a date, but playing Monster Prom is some of the most fun you'll have trying to figure out a game's mechanics.

In the end, Monster Prom's charm stems from its thematic elements. Fantastic interactions, its satirical narrative, and the monster theme offer a unique spin, even if it doesn't deviate all that much from known formulas. But, it does bring a little more to the table, a party for daters who are in it more for the ride than the destination.

It is still most certainly worth giving a go, so long as you're aware of its limitations going in.

Monster Prom is ridiculously fun and laugh out loud funny; I've been cackling like Edna Crabapple with almost every panel. I plan to play it a lot more even though I'm done with my review, which is basically the biggest compliment I can give a game these days. Whether you're a fan of dating stimula—er, simulators—or not, I highly recommend it.

It could be far more engaging with these premises, and sometimes the good cards that the game have could be played in a better way.

Monster Prom is simply hell-a fun. With an amazing art style and a cast of lovable characters, this game has every ingredient to get you hooked to it, if you are a type that feeds on internet culture. Plus, is a very hard dating sim, even for veterans of thousands visual novels.

Monster Prom XXL is not a game for everyone, but if you're down for some hardcore monster dating with a penchant for foul-mouthed humor and goofiness, it's incredible. I love the way it takes a visual novel and dating sim and transforms it into a party game. Some rough edges might be present in the interface, but Monster Prom is a riotously good time.

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.
