Game description: Even monsters need to be trained, loved, and bred--and you can be the one to do it. The third installment in the Monster Rancher series lets you breed and train your own monster, and then enter it into fighting tournaments to battle for prizes and fame. New monsters are bred by pairing two existing ones or those spawned from music CDs, movie DVDs, or game discs. Monster Rancher 3 includes unlockable levels, secret expeditions, and hundreds of new monsters.

I also tried using ZeroGS and believe me it was even slower. the game also has bunch of graphical Problem like when in battle and observing some objects (and I tired removing the hacks to make sure it wasn't the hacks), Far from Perfect but it's playable.
