For those of you who enjoy RPGs, this is recommended. For those of you who are a fan of the Dragon Warrior series, this is recommended. For those of you who are fans of monster-breeding in general, this is recommended. Heck, the only people this is not recommended to are those who just do not have the time to get involved with a time-consuming game. It takes approximately ten hours to complete this game, which is not so bad, but for the complete Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 experience, you need to play the optional worlds, you need to breed for the optimal party, and that could take years of gaming. But, Dragon Warrior 2 is worth years and years of gaming, and this writer fully recommends that you make it your own.
Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 is a great combination of role-playing and monster raising games. Almost everyone that gives it a try will find that DWM2 is one of the few RPGs that has any kind of staying power once the story is complete.

There's no doubt that Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 is a fine game in its own right, but it's hard to shake that been there, done that Pokémon feel. Also, as good as this game is, I find it inferior to the recently released Dragon Warrior III. If you do not share my prejudices, however, have at it!
The game lasts about fifteen hours, but you can play the game to collect more monsters after you "beat" it. There is also a ton of replay value for two player battle mode, which is accomplished via link cable, and the ability to trade and breed monsters with friends. Though the game is no Pokemon, it certainly holds its own. If you were a fan of Pokemon, check it out. If not, you may want to pass.
These are great games for kids who are into Pokemon and Digimon. Or for any aspiring geneticists. The bulk of the game is capturing, training, trading, breeding and fighting. It is a collection game just like collectible trading card games. Both Cobi’s Journey and Tara’s Adventure are massive in size and will keep anyone occupied for hours. If you are a fan of the Dragon Warrior RPG series and are looking for a deep storyline, this is not for you. However, if you loved the fighting in Dragon Warrior, pick up Cobi’s Journey or Tara’s Adventure or both and let the breeding/fighting begin!
The Next Level
With some solid graphics, addictive gameplay with essentially two games in one, and a huge world to explore to boot, Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 is a great alternative to those who are getting bored of the Pokémon series. In fact, in some aspects DWM2 actually eclipses Nintendo's moneymaking machine in many areas of gameplay, and there can't be any higher praise than that. If you're hunting for a new, exciting Gameboy Color RPG, be sure to pick up a link cable and give this game a whirl!
