Impression: Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia

Excerpt: If there was one game I didn't expect to play at Nintendo's Fall Press Event last week, it was Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia . Not only because I haven't kept up on the series much since Diamond and Pearl , but I also managed to somehow skip over every mention of its existence. Whoops!
Still catching Pokemon, just this time to solve puzzles.

Summary: Parents need to know that this Pokemon game de-emphasizes combat in favor of "befriending" Pokemon and capturing them for a short time so that they can help players solve environment-based puzzles.
Excerpt: In Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, you once again play as a Pokemon Ranger working to help people, Pokemon, and nature in general. These duties take place in a new area called the Almia Region. Starting out as a Student Ranger, you quickly earn the title of a full-fledged Pokemon Ranger.
Conclusion: With the little enhancements made in Shadows of Almia it is still a good game. I still prefer the regular Pokemon games; the Ranger series is just way too easy after awhile. Certain aspects of the game feel like a chore, which is why I can only recommend this to Pokemon fans.
