Temtem

There is nothing original about this - it's a shameless Pokemon rip-off for PC with all the same elements and mechanics. That being said, Nintento never bothered to make Pokemon for PC, so Crema filled the gap and that's fair enough. I'm enjoying playing it here and there, because it's super well optimised and really pretty. Some of the Temtem are really cute, and the animations are all really well made. For Early Access, it's really well polished. If you like pokemon, then it's definitely worth playing. Otherwise, it's pretty grindy.

Pros

  • Pretty graphics, runs well
  • Battles are 2v2 which at least makes it slightly more interesting
  • Great music

Cons

  • You can't rotate the camera
  • You can't skip animations, making the grinding a little more tedious than it needs to be
  • Temtem are less memorable than Pokemon, even without the nostalgia value
