Excerpt: Hopefully you read my preview on the website before reading this review. There are some interesting behind the scenes information in that preview. Pokemon Ranger is one of the stranger Pokemon games we have played at Family Friendly Gaming.
Excerpt: Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs may have some new places to see and more gameplay features, but like previous titles in this side-series, it's just not interesting or engaging enough to warrant much attention from older gamers.
Pros: Lengthy single player mode for $30, plus the ability to import rare Pokemon to other DS games. Flexible multiplayer missions can be played with human companions of computer-controlled A.I.

19 March 2010
Excerpt: While here in North America we have been celebrating the release of Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver , Japan has been enjoying their own Pokemon release this week – that of Hikari no Kiseki, AKA Pokemon Ranger: Locus of Light , which some are translating as Tracks of Light or Path of Light .

Excerpt: This has been an excellent year for Pokemon. Although it started off with a mediocre game in Pokemon Trozei , it was then followed up with an excellent twist on the turn based RPG format via Pokemon Mysterious Dungeon .
