  • Excerpt: In just over 10 years since its first incarnation, the Pokemon franchise has proved that, despite its unstoppable success, it’s the one title whose quality adult gamers are still loathe to admit. Perhaps it’s the marketing blitz that heralded its arrival in the late nineties, perhaps it’s the perceived shallowness of its turn-based battling, but nowadays most gamers would rather be caught playing Pippa Funnell than the latest Pokemon instalment…

  • Excerpt: Ah Pokémon, a phenomenon that spread across the world many years ago. Who knew that catching and training virtual monsters while battling other trainers would prove to be so entertaining. When Red/Blue (Red/Green in Japan) was released for the original Game Boy in 1998, Americans caught Pokémon fever too, watching the anime non-stop along with buying Pokémon merchandise and kids fighting each other for trading cards.

  • Conclusion: As lovely as it would be, good things don’t last. The Pokémon RPG series used to be something so phenomenal in its beginning. What really bothers me is that this series may continue on using the same method, creating the same experience every time, that slowly dulls, and people will still buy it. Those of us who once loved the series and want to see it evolve into something that could far overshadow the previous games will be left waiting for an unknown amount of time.

  • Excerpt: Having now pumped more than 15 hours into the game, I can assure anyone who hasn't got a copy of the game, my last question above is not at all true. In fact, Diamond has to be ranked as one of the best games I've played this year. Everything from the graphics, to the music, to the gameplay Nintendo has got virtually everything spot on.
  • Pros: Its Pokemon, on the DS, with two screens!
  • Cons: The Touch Screen isn't used to full potential, and the Poketch at the best of times is useless.
