Has potential, online multiplayer, interesting plot
Glitches, boring game play, low quality animation
Monster Warlord for Android is a lot like playing RPG cards. Collect monsters, do battle and stack abilities. It’s decent fun, but more of a kid’s game.
Monster Warlord has some ok action, but the presentation is a little Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Games that rely heavily on imagination are fantastic, but all the more reason to do a killer job on what little we do see. There are an array of different monsters you can do battle with and collect by winning them from opponents. The online mode against live players works ok, but the battles are over before you really know what happened. This is one of those games where you just push a few virtual buttons and everything happens for you.
I think kids will appreciate the rudimentary graphics and controls because it keeps things simple. The graphics are colorful and spark some real imagination, but are relatively static and don’t have much movement. I guess all that’s fine if we’re talking about a deck of fantasy cards, but for an app, it’s hard not to expect a little more out of it.
Monster Warlord is a decent kid’s game but more seasoned players may get bored with it fast. You can spend a lot of money on some of the upgrade packages and it all just seems far too greedy for what little this game has to offer. In the end, you just gotta ask yourself, 'how much you’re willing to pay to play RPG cards?'
