Summary: This game graphically is a massive leap forward, and it probably took a lot of effort to bring all 700+ Pokemon into 3D. But is this the best Pokemon game ever released? NO. I've been playing pokemon for 14 years, and I've played through EVERY single generation, With no bias to the older games or the newer games. X and Y have the worst Story yet.
Summary: Son loves it. He has played for days and says it is a great game. Wanted to buy it in store but it is priced $6 higher than the posted online price. So we bought it online and waited for it at the in store pick up a few minutes later and saved some of his cash.
Summary: I've been a long time pokemon fan, so I was pretty happy when this game came in the mail. Instantly I was taken away by how fresh this game was, which is saying something because pokemon games usually don't change much (aside from adding new pokemon and changing the layout a bit). The game feels fresh, but at times it was a little unpolished (i.e annoying camera angles going out of control).
Summary: I've played every generation of pokemon. I put off buying a 3ds for as long as possible despite my desire to play pokemon X & Y. I shouldn't have. The games are the biggest step forward in the franchise since Gold, Silver and Crystal. I recommended it to a friend who is in her thirties who had never played a pokemon game, and she is obsessed with it. I would recommend this game to ANYONE.
Summary: The game, compared to Pokemon Black and White (the last two entries I played) is much more streamlined and improved. The scaled experience has been stopped, which was a major gripe for me pokemon B/W. The ease of leveling all your pokemon simultaneously using the experience share is far simpler than any previous version, which is kind of a bad thing in that I could keep using one pokemon throughout the entire game and still have a perfectly leveled team.
