Summary: I bought this game new when i had a nintendo dsi as a teen somewhere in 2010. Now that i have a ds again i decided to rebuy it because i traded my old copy back to gamestop years ago. -Review Part- This game is basically the DS remake of Pokemon Gold Version for the Gameboy Color with some bells and whistles added here and there. Graphics 7.5/10: The graphics look very nice for a DS game, not the best on the DS ever but not terrible looking.
Summary: Nintendo's Pokémon series hasn't changed much since its humble beginnings on the Gameboy, although it has nonetheless managed to sell well in Japan and beyond. After the series landed on the Nintendo DS with the Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum versions, Nintendo announced remakes of the Gold and Silver versions on the Gameboy entitled Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver, which retain the franchise's addictive gameplay, in spite of their flaws.
Summary: I haven't been able to complete this game yet, but from what I've experienced, it has been pretty entertaining. My favorite part is that the Pokemon follow you in the party, which made me experience a flashback to my first, and maybe favorite, Pokemon game, which is the Pokemon Yellow for Gameboy Color.However, one thing I don't like, is that the game seems to take a LONG time, almost running in slow motion, part of the reason I haven't finished, I run out of patience...
Summary: Unfortunately, the game which was sent to me was defective. That is NOT the seller's fault, because it was a brand new copy, sealed, and it happens. It's not the first time I've gotten a defective video game, DVD, CD, etc... I sent the seller an email, and hope to hear back soon. I could only play up to the fourth gym before my game crashed. I have restarted the game and it freezes a lot.
Summary: I haven't beaten Heart Gold Version yet, but I've gotten pretty darn close. You see, I grew up with Pokemon. As an 18 year old, I was in the middle of all the hype back in the day of old school GBA cartridges. So I played Red, Blue, Yellow; Hell, I even played Green version on a special Japanese Game boy when I lived on the Air Force base in Yakota, Japan. I got both Gold and Silver versions when they came out; Loved em.
Summary: Pokemon HearGold is half of a pair of remakes of the highly popular Pokemon franchise games, released almost eleven years ago. The games, while still very formulaic, immerse the player into the shoes of the character (named at the player's discretion), and the goal of the game is as well known as the mascot of the series, Pikachu: to catch 'em all, and to gain Gym badges.
Summary: I played the original Pokémon silver on the game boy color, and after seeing remakes like FFIII I thought that this would be worth a try. And this is a very enjoyable game, even though I did get stumped on the 8th gym leader :( Pros: - It is a perfect recreation of the original game, but with improved graphics. - Your Pokémon gain EXP at a much faster rate than in the more recent games, so you don't end up having to grind.
