Summary: I am a long time pokemon fan, having started playing the series when I was maybe 8 or 9, with pokemon red. I own a game from every series (not counting the remakes) up to this one, and this is the very first time I've ever felt that a pokemon game was unappealing. I re-started platinum to see if this was just because I've finally outgrown the concept of the game but alas, no. Platinum I still enjoy, so it really must be that this game just doesn't deliver.
Summary: As far as pokemon games go this one is pretty mediocre. The game play is long but not complex and feels very much like a generic copy of every other pokemon game. A lot of the actual pokemon just seem like literal redraws of the original pokemon: a tadpole, a dog, a cat, a duck, a rat, a pigeon, a bat, a bull, an electric rat, a turtle, a crab and worst of all another crappy heart shaped fish.
Summary: Somethings never change. Pokemon games are one of those things. In five generations, the basic formula has not changed. Players play the role of a Pokemon trainer. Players chose one pokemon from three starter pokemon (grass type, water type, and fire type). Players travel the land catching Pokemon and filling a Pokedex for a Pokemon professor who is normally named after a tree.
Summary: i was excited when i got it but as soon as i started playing it was so uncreative, i think i got to the third gym and then got bored and never went on it again. the overall graphics were O.K but the in battle graphics are terrible worse than like pokemon crystall for a gameboy colour really really Picksellated (btw im dislexic)
