Summary

Nexomon is Pokemon let’s get that straight, it uses so much of the Pokemon DNA that it’s just hard to not notice. Nexomon does however make a Pokemon-like game that is faster in so many ways from accessibility to how the interactions and combat phases play out. I really like Nexomon as they do have some fun with creating these little creatures, the names are terrible but the little dudes themselves are quite good. You can say how it’s just a rip-off but at the end of the day it’s a good rip-off and does have a few of its own tricks up the sleeve but overall it’s a fun game, full of fun, and looks fantastic. It makes a streamlined version of Pokemon and gives it to more players thanks to cross-console releases.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
