Kids' Reviews: Fossil Fighters For Nintendo DS
This is a dinosaur game to play on Nintendo DS. What you have to do is bring back the dinosaurs from the past which can be really hard to do. There is lots of fighting on the quest which is really good too. I think kids would like it because there is dinosaurs and fighting together. Also it’s not too hard so lots of kids can play it but there are still some hard parts that make it challenging.
When you start playing there is someone telling you what you have to do on the quest and you can learn how to play too. There’s an island where people go to see Fossil Stadium to watch dinosaur battles. There are fossils you have to dig for. Sometimes the fossil has chunks of rock attached to it so you have to break the rock off first to see the fossil. You get points if you don’t break the fossil when you’re taking off the rock.
If you get a fossil that’s a skull you get something called a Vivosaur that you can use to battle other dinosaurs in the stadium. If you get a body, arm or leg fossil it adds power to your Vivosaur. Each Vivosaur has different powers to use in the battles.
It's cool that the game is on the Nintendo DS because you actually get to do all the stuff and not move a controller around. You can bring the Vivosaur back to life then fight with them and they look great! The more bones you get the more powerful your Vivosaur gets. It's cool because the game is a bit like Pokemon, but with dinosaurs and you learn a lot about them. When you do dinosaurs in school you'll know a ton already.
The Boys Thoughts
I like how the dinosaurs look and there are lots of different species you can unlock. I think it’s fun for kids to try and find all the different Vivosaurs. I felt like this game was a good mix of my other favorite games which are Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh so I really liked it. And other kids that like those games will like Fossil Fighters too.
The Girls Thoughts
I thought the game started really slow, but once you figured how to do everything it was tons of fun! I really liked how you got to use all of the tools to get the dinosaur out of the fossil and I learned a lot about dinosaurs. I don't play many games, but this one was really interesting so I kept playing it. It's addictive and some of the dinosaurs are really cute! Everyone should try it out because you'll learn so much but have a lot of fun!
