  • Excerpt: Anyone who knows me knows that some of my toughest reviews have been any of the Pokemon series. For some strange reason I have not been a total fan of the games. I can be honest and say that I have tried to really get along with the whole “gotta catch them all” gameplay, but it just hasn’t been my cup of tea. That being said, I was somewhat intrigued to see how Nintendo would bring Pokemon into the DS world by offering a true sequel.

Classic Pokemon format, this one's worth catching.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a non-violent game, even though the focus is on "battles" with the Pokemon that are strategic turn-based moves and don't feature any physical contact between characters. When a Pokemon loses all of its health, it faints. This is the newest version of the Pokemon series, and it allows children who have played the earlier GBA versions to download their caught Pokemon into this game.

  • Excerpt: It never fails - new Nintendo handheld begets new Pokémon game. It was only a matter of time before Nintendo brought an entry in the main series of its famed franchise onto the DS. Though many people may have already gotten tired of catching 'em all, the newest title in the Pokémon series may just change their minds.

  • Excerpt: As the sun rises over the Sinnoh Region, children are leaving their homes by the hundreds. They aren’t attending school, nor are they running away from tough family situations and domestic abuse. In fact, their parents are waving goodbye from their doorsteps, secretly wiping tears from their eyes and hiding their emotions. They know that they may never see their sons or daughters for months, years, or ever again.

  • Conclusion: Gamers will get a great value for Diamond/Pearl. There is simply no question about it. There is an immense wealth of things to see and do, and the main goal of just catching all of the Poke’mon will take a great deal of time. Besides that, there are tons of mini-games and other activities, and players will be trading and battling with other players for weeks, even months.

  • Conclusion: Pokémon Diamond (and Pearl) uses all of the Nintendo DS’s features superbly, and doesn’t try to be too clever or innovative. While past games on the troubled handheld have made attempts to be innovative and failed, this game doesn’t bother with that because it doesn’t need to. It’s Pokémon, a multi-million selling franchise that has lived through several generations of gaming hardware.
