Excerpt: The first Pokemon game for 3DS, Pokemon Rumble Blast is a simple beat-em-up-style action game featuring nearly every Pokemon in the series, including all the new Pokemon from Black and White. What it sets out to do it does fairly well.

Cons: Boring level design, Feels repetitive, Gameplay is too simplistic for older fans

Excerpt: Make no mistake: I am a Pokémon fan. I’ve been a fan since I collected all 151 Pokémon (yes, including Mew) in Pokémon Red in 1998. My Pokémon Black Pokédex is fully completed. I’ve snapped a picture of every Pokémon in Pokémon Snap and unlocked a Surfing Pikachu in Pokémon Stadium .
Excerpt: These creatures that we call Pokémon have taken the world over with memorabilia of all shapes and kinds. So it would only be fitting that a Pokémon game would be created starring Pokémon toys. Thus, Pokémon Rumble Blast has come into existence.
