Pokemon Conquest Review

About.com
20 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Pokemon Conquest is one of this year’s nicest surprises for the Nintendo DS and 3DS. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s engaging, and it combines two popular properties with relative ease. If you’re tired of slogging through regular Pokemon battles, maybe it’s time for you to take your favorite critters out for a walk on a real battlefield.

Pokemon Conquest

Destructoid

  • Summary: When Tecmo Koei first revealed that it was working on a crossover between Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition , heads were understandably turned. While I'd have much preferred Dynasty Warriors , the concept was nonetheless intriguing and worthy of attention, seeming just too ridiculous to not be worth at least a chance. Of course, baffling games that sound great on paper don't often end up too well in practice.

Pokemon Conquest

Family Friendly Gaming
22 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Long time readers know I enjoy playing the Shining Force kind of video games. I patiently await a new game in that franchise from Sega. I also look for anyone to get into the same league as Shining Force. Family Friendly Gaming massively covered Pokemon Conquest. It was our hope that this game would at least enter the Shining Force arena. Pokemon Conquest finally entered a price zone I was willing to pay for, and risk that it would be worth the entry fee.

Review: Pokemon Conquest (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
31 August 2012
  • Summary: Not only is Pokémon Conquest one of the best tactical RPGs that I have played in some time, but I’m also thrilled to have another Nobunaga’s Ambition title in English – the first since Iron Triangle . Pokémon Conquest is a wonderful blend of the two franchises and the end result is a game unlike any other, although comparisons to games like Dragon Force , Dark Wizard and Brigandine are apt.

Strategy-based battle game breathes new life to series.

Common Sense Media
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Pokemon Conquest is a very different game than every other title in the Pokemon franchise. This game is a strategy-based role-playing game in which players conduct battles on various game-like boards. Players move their Pokemon to various points on the board so that they can attach nearby opponents while also preventing being attacked from the opposing Pokemon.

Gotta Conquer Them All

RPGamer
2 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Pokémon Conquest is the crossover that no one saw coming. A mix of classic Pokémon RPG mechanics and Koei’s long running historical strategy and simulation series Nobunaga’s Ambition , at first glance it seems like they would make for a poor pairing. As it turns out, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Though Pokémon Conquest largely drops the historical aspects of Koei’s series, it keeps the kingdom conquering and strategy battles, now fought using Pokémon.

  • Conclusion: Conquest doesn’t excel at anything it does, but it doesn’t really take any missteps either. For what it’s worth, the fact that someone is trying something new and outside-the-box with Pokemon is commendable in itself, and I hope that this game is enough of a success that it makes it viable for The Pokemon Company to keep trying new things with the franchise in the future.
