    Coromon has so much going on, but it’s not difficult to play. This game is just really entertaining and fully engaging with plenty of challenging battles between creatures you capture and train. It’s got so many different paths that will set up as you continue to play, cause each choice you decide will create the journey you’ll need to continue on to complete the game. I feel that this game is really something worth playing. It’s perfect for all styles of gamers, beginners to expert RPG gamers, and will keep you playing over and over again and again.

    Coromon is a delightful master catching game that runs really well on the Switch, and is perfect for handheld sessions on the sofa.

    It’s clear that Coromon was worth the wait, even if it didn’t quite live up to my hype as the game that dethroned Pokémon. That said, this is a beautiful and creative adventure full of heart, with hours of gameplay to keep you going and plenty of reasons for hardcore players to pay attention. Sure, I might have wanted more optional content, but what’s here is hard to dismiss. If you’re a fan of monster-hunting games and want a new portable adventure on Switch, look no further.

    To be sure, if you want something original – or even a unique spin on Pokémon – Coromon isn’t it. But if you just want that kind of game done exceedingly well, you need to check it out.

    It’s easy for Coromon to be labeled a clone. It almost begs you to think of it as one. On the surface, it looks like a new set of monsters were dropped into a nearly identical world. But dig a little deeper. A story that doesn’t have gyms or badges, customization in both difficulty and player options that you don’t see in the competitor. Coromon feels more like a spiritual successor to monster trainer games of decades past. Sharper pixel graphics and features that people ask for are present throughout. The look of Coromon is more refined than what you’d expect from a "clone". If you enjoy collecting monsters, then Coromon has it. If you want a new twist, something that helps define the genre moving forward, you might be let down.

    Coromon takes aim at one of the greatest series of all time and, while it isn’t any threat to Pokémon’s worldwide domination, it is a charming and fun nostalgia trip for fans. Excessive grinding and a story that takes its time to get going mar what is otherwise a worthwhile journey, but if you're a fan of old-school Pokémon, that shouldn’t put you off investigating this title up. Whether you’re a new trainer or you’ve been catching 'em all for years now, Coromon has something for you to enjoy.

    However you slice it, you’re ultimately getting a slavish homage to the early-era Pokémon games, but one that can’t get anywhere near their quality. Coromon is let down by having even fewer monsters to collect than the very first Pokémon, and some amateurish production values and gameplay design that Game Freak, for all its faults with the presentation of its own games, would never let happen. It’s still fun, because it’s so akin to Pokémon that of course it’s fun, but Coromon’s immediate rival, Nexomon (also available on Switch), actually tries to subvert some of the expectations of the genre, and comes off as the most interesting work as a consequence.

    "Coromon is very much made for veterans of the Pokémon series who have been itching for a challenge that Game Freak doesn’t seem to want to"Coromon is very much made for veterans of the Pokémon series who have been itching for a challenge that Game Freak doesn’t seem to want to give them. With it’s refreshing roster full of interesting creatures and its compelling – although perhaps a little anticlimactic – story, the game brought back feelings of playing the original Pokémon Black & White. The tweaks TRAGsoft have made to the formula are largely positive, even if there’s the occasional misstep, making this my favourite Monster Taming game on the Switch so far. I hope Coromon continues to evolve in future instalments, as there’s a lot of potential here for an outstanding franchise."

    HOLY SMOKES this game is absolutely fantastic. It looks so polished and well thought out. I-I have never played such a good monster tamingHOLY SMOKES this game is absolutely fantastic. It looks so polished and well thought out. I-I have never played such a good monster taming game. I was used to very low standards with all the mainline Pokemon games that I forgot what makes them fun and interesting.
    I really don't know if I can ever play a mainline Pokemon game again. lol.
    It has charm, polish AND style.

    Ok, now back to playing!
