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.

Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia (DS)

The Review Busters
1 December 2008
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Even if you're a hardcore Pokemon freak, minor gameplay changes and a yawn-inducing story means this kiddy DS title just isn't worth the price for more seasoned gamers.
  • Pros: Colorful, vibrant graphics; accessible gameplay for the DS stylus
