Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip Review

After choosing a ghastly monster and the proper tunes, players are properly introduced to the party ghost Polly Geist and Scott Howl, a werewolf athlete with a heart of gold. With these two in tow, the three of you hit the road, seeking out a destination and enjoying the journey along the way.

However, it’s not all smooth sailing from there; players must balance six essential resources to determine where they end up. Juggling hype, magic, mind, money, soul, and stamina, the first one to reach 25 points determines where one will end up. Be warned, however; running out of any one of these elements will put your adventure to a screeching halt, and nobody wants that.

In order to gain those precious points, players will take part in a number of events that will help players earn points. There’s a catch, however; players can also stand to lose points as well. Some events might pay off more than others, but players must be deliberate in this title to make sure they get what they want out of life.

Therein lies the crux of Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip – making decisions. A visual novel at its core, gameplay consists of reading swaths of text and making judgment calls that make or break things. Do you read philosophy to an ugly cat? Do you ride a minotaur? Do you overthrow a farm animal called Snowflake? Choices made are just as wacky as the scenarios provided, ensuring that each run stays quickly in the oddball.

However, this also proves to be Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip’s biggest drawback. This title doesn’t quite seem to know what audience it should go for; the younger generation will likely be tuned out by its still images and large blocks of text, while the older ones among us (well past the teenage years) will likely find the humor too childish and crude. The title veers on the side of vulgar, like something one would see on Adult Swim. Some may appeal something in line with Rick & Morty, but the Venn Diagram doesn’t exactly have mainstream appeal.

However, those that do stick with it will be able to get some serious runtime out of this title. There are multiple choices and multiple endings to be had, and players can also change the course by dating characters and customizing things at different rest stops.

Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip’s basic presentation and crude humor will appeal to a select few, but those looking for a good tale with some ghoulish creatures will enjoy hitting the road.

A joint collaboration between Gus McGuire, Mark , Logan Bailey, Hailey White, Alan Buechner, and the Neumont College of Computer Science, Alpacalypse tasks players with kicking and spitting their way through hordes of alpacas. Should players live out their alpaca dreams in this 2.5D platformer, or is this one too roughshod for its own good?
After being released in Japan in 2014, Ryu ga Gotoku Studio and SEGA's Like a Dragon: Ishin! finally makes its worldwide debut. Is the journey worth taking, or should you look elsewhere for your samurai fix?
Cornering the shrine maiden shooter market, Pocky and Rocky are back for another go-around with the PC release of NatsumeAtari’s Pocky & Rocky Reshrined. Does this run-and-gun sequel have what it takes to stop the monsters of the mountains, or do its yokai signal a foreboding presence?
With the recent history of WWE games struggling to meet expectations, WWE 2K23 faced an uphill struggle to impress. With the release of WWE 2K22 being a big step in the right direction, it was vital for Visual Concepts and 2K Games to continue with that momentum and see a return to form for the most dominant franchise in the wrestling genre. Okay, there's not a ton of competition for that title...yet.
