Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner is a slightly darker take on the collectible-creature formula made popular by the PokÃƒÂ©mon games. But while the monsters are a bit more imposing and the characters are a bit less clothed, Jewel Summoner certainly isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mature in any sense. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a bland role-playing game wrapped around a compelling, if unoriginal, creature-collection system. The greatest shortcoming of Jewel Summoner isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t its dull story, dearth of character, or lifeless world. Rather, the most nagging issue is the extremely slow progression of the game and a very poor action-to-dialogue ratio. If you can forgive those problems, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find several hours of passable entertainment in Jewel Summoner.
