Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner 

 

Does the concept of Pokemon interest you, but the characters look too kiddy for you? If the answer to that question is a yes then Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner from Atlus may be of interest to you. In this fantasy world monsters are contained within jewels, and the summoners call them forth to fight for them. Players have a team of three characters who can each hold three monsters; bringing the grand total of nine monsters at any time. Additional monsters can be contained back at the bank of the Order (main headquarters for Jewel Summoners). The main character (which is the player’s character) Vice is out for revenge against a specific Abomination. Abominations also control monsters that are out in the open (not imprisoned in jewels).

The graphics in this Playstation Portable (PSP) role playing game are very crisp and clear. The animation is okay, and the attention to detail is quite nice indeed. The art style used reminded me of one of my favorite series of all time - Ys. The monsters are hideous, with an occasional one being somewhat pleasant to view. The most shocking graphical content is how provocatively the women are dressed. The enticement to lust levels are way too high in this game. Why do men get to be dressed, but the women go around half dressed?

The music is Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner is okay for a little while. I got a little tired of it, and muted the sounds after five hours or so. This game has some serious issues with profanity. I found such constant usage of a display of weak minds was annoying. The characters who are supposed to be heroes also have horribly bad attitudes towards everything that is not boosting their own egos. Authority figures cower in the face of these adult style temper tantrums way too often. There is also an old man character who is sexually harassing the half dressed women at every opportunity.

Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner succeeds in the extras department quite well, as long as you can stomach the plethora of bad content. Just like Pokemon there are a ton of different monsters to catch, level up, etc. There are also items hidden in different dungeons after certain skills are learned. Only one person can play this game at a time, but the story is long, in fact a little drawn out for me.

This game controls generally well, with the exception of trying to get in position to open a treasure chest. For the life of me, I could never get that right the first time. The layout of the controls, and the menus is pretty intuitive. Even though there are a lot of monsters, their moves are way too similar.

Too many teenagers already have bad attitudes towards adults, and this game fuels that rebellious (editor: and disruptive) mood. Authority figures are to be respected. Women are more than sexual objects as well, and should be properly respected. Sexual harassment is not funny. Revenge is not something we should seek, but forgiveness is what we should offer. The RPG Master really wanted to like this game more, but the major moral shortcomings is a real downer.
