Pokemon Black Version 2 Review

26 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Time and time again we return to Pokemon because it’s reliable. From a playground craze to a guilty pleasure on lengthy commutes, Game Freak's golden formula has remained largely untouched over the years, but what it does it does well and delivers it in spades with each new instalment. Choosing to forgo a 3DS debut, Black and White 2 rely on the laurels of their forbearers in the continued absence of big changes.

PC Magazine
20 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Pokemon Black and White Version 2 offer more Pokemon fun on the Nintendo DS, and change just enough from the previous games to offer a unique and enjoyable experience for veterans.
  • Pros: Enough changes from the last version to feel fresh. Plenty of content.
  • Cons: It's still the same Pokemon formula, so don't expect anything too new.

The Gamers Temple
20 October 2012
  • Excerpt: As The Gamers' Temple resident Poke-expert, it is always a big deal for me when a new Pokemon RPG comes out. All other leisure activities grind to sudden halt and my DS (or in this case, 3DS XL) is never far from my grasp at any given moment of the day, whether I'm at work, watching TV on the couch, out to dinner with the wife (who is also hopelessly addicted, by the way); no institution is safe from being sidetracked by catching 'em all.

Not Quite Worthy Of The Number 2

Game Informer
1 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Give Pokémon its first numbered sequel by picking up the story and adding a handful of new features Graphics: Visuals are between the second and third-dimension without settling comfortably into either. The art direction, however, is as inviting as ever Sound: You will hear familiar Pokémon sound effects and tunes. You will either love them in all their nostalgic glory or play with the volume down Playability: The stiff non-diagonal grid movement returns.

Pokemon Black Version 2 review

26 October 2012
  • Summary: Pokemon Black/White Version 2 is the best edition of the longstanding handheld series to date, but developer Game Freak sorely needs to bring its online functionality into this decade.
  • Pros: More detailed world. Huge volume of content. Achievements at least reward more mundane tasks.
  • Cons: Three-way battles still feel superfluous. Online components hardly realised.

Expert Review

23 October 2012
  • Summary: Små endringar er det som skildrar Pokémon-serien best. Det skjer ikkje frykteleg mykje nytt i kvar utgåve, men det er nok til at det kan få ei merkbar effekt på spelet. Spørsmålet er om det er nok. Sjølv om Pokémon Black Version 2 byr på ei og anna nyvinning er det i praksis rimeleg identisk med dei føregåande spela.

Pokémon Black Version 2

10 October 2012
  • Summary: Pokémon-spel sägs ofta vara mer evolution än revolution, och i den senaste delen är det mer sant än någonsin. Men den nya reprisen har ändå en del spelglädje att bjuda på.
  • Pros: Mysig spelvärld, Beroendeframkallande gameplay, Lång, lång speltid
  • Cons: Banal historia, Serien är i behov av en nytändning
