Sure, Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Tara's Adventure might not be the most innovative game out there, but it's entertaining-and that's what really counts.

Gaming Target
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.

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!

Unless you’ve played RPGs before, this is a good introductory game. Devout DWM and Pokémon fans will instantly see the good aspects of this game, and like it, but I wouldn’t recommend it outside that small group. If you don’t have a Game Boy Advance, spend your money on other titles, like Metal Gear Solid, and Warlocked; but if you do have one, then spend your money on things like Advance Wars (Something I highly advocate), and Mario Kart.
