Nexomon: Extinction is a solid take on the monster training genre with some interesting gameplay tweaks on the Pokémon formula and narrative decisions. The higher difficulty saps some of the pace and enjoyment of adventuring, making me hanker for a return to a Pokémon game. Still, if you're after some monster catching and battling, Nexomon: Extinction will do the job.

With a sensible update or two, Nexomon: Extinction could evolve into a much more enticing experience. It's never going to have the charm of Pokémon, but it could yet be a decent alternative.

Audience Reviews

Before you write Nexomon: Extinction off as just another wannabe remake of Pokémon, hear me out.

Against my better judgment, I set out to review Nexomon: Extinction to prove to myself and others that we were not missing out. What I found was an inviting, vibrant world
