Expert Review

28 October 2005
  • Conclusion: It's superior to Ruby and Sapphire, but a lack of new content means it's only worthwhile for the biggest of Pokémon fans.
  • Pros: Refines the new features of Ruby and Sapphire, new Pokémon animations.
  • Cons: Not enough new additions.

Pokemon Emerald

Just RPG
13 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Nintendo is always an interesting company to ponder. While it is usually very easy to guess what they are going to do, they always go that extra mile to defy your expectations somewhere along the line. In the case of Pokémon Emerald , that a director’s cut variation of the Ruby and Sapphire games would be made was easy to predict. What I didn’t predict was that a game so very similar to several others I had played would be so very engaging.

Pokemon Emerald

The Armchair Empire
6 June 2005
  • Conclusion: - Seemingly simple strategy proves to be quite deep - Easy to get into if you’ve played the other Pokémon games If you’re unfamiliar with the Pokémon concept – all three of you – here it is in a nutshell. In your role a as Pokémon trainer you wander the gameworld battling wild Pokémon and challenging other trainers to earn more experience for your roster of Pokémon creatures that can conveniently be stored in Pokéballs.
  • Pros: - Seemingly simple strategy proves to be quite deep, - Easy to get into if you’ve played the other Pokémon games, - Straightforward presentation, - VS. mode fits right in
  • Cons: - Battles sometimes feel a little protracted, - Not too engrossing for anyone looking for deep, deep RPG, - A lot of trial and error as you figure out the strengths and weaknesses of each Pokémon

Pokemon Emerald

Nintendo World Report
29 January 2005
  • Summary: Are you a bad enough dude to catch them all?
  • Pros: Combines the best of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Hours and hours of gameplay, New storyline featuring both Team Aqua and Magma, and both Legendary Pokémon from Ruby/Sapphire
  • Cons: Rehash of Ruby/Sapphire, Story is slow-moving and somewhat predictable, Technically unimpressive

Pokemon Emerald

Project COE

  • Conclusion: Like every different version of a pokemon game, Emerald won`t have the exact pokemon locations Ruby or Sapphire did. Some pokemon will learn new moves they weren't able to before. The entire pokemon roster of Emerald hasn't been officially released yet but you won't be able to catch them all without trading. Besides the new animations, the pokemon will also have a slightly different look.

Pokémon Emerald

Level 7
13 March 2006
  • Conclusion: Något skapare och tydligare än Ruby/Sapphire, men det grafiska imponerar verkligen inte. Hemsk musik, ett uråldrigt kontrollsystem som inte ens använder L- och R-knapparna, samt bristen på nytänkande gör sitt bästa för att förstöra upplevelsen. Men tillräckligt mycket av Pokémon-magin finns kvar för att rädda spelet- till viss del. Om du inte tröttnar under de första timmarna så kommer spelet att hålla länge. Ännu ett Pokémon-spel.
  • Pros: Passar bra för korta spelsessioner, Välfylld manual som gör att även unga spelare kan förstå vad som ska göras
  • Cons: Deja Vu^9, 1

Manie-Manie: I racconti del labirinto

GamesZone
10 March 2006
  • Conclusion: Avevo qualche perplessità riguardo questo anime, ma guardandolo ho cambiato completamente opinione, sicuramente è una storia molto particolare, ingarbugliata, gli episodi fra loro sono solo incastrati e mal inseriti l’uno nell’altro, ma il suo vero fascino forse è questo…tre storie che cercano di incontrarsi e che raccontano a loro modo tre mondi diversi.
  • Pros: Delizioso e raffinato;
  • Cons: Non adatto a tutti;

Pokémon Emerald

Geek Culture
29 October 2005
  • Conclusion: Pokémon Emerald indeholder så mange muligheder, at man nok aldrig kommer til at kede sig i selskab med spillet. Ynder man at samle på ting, er det her nærmest at betragte som et stærkt vanedannende narkotikum, der er svært at lægge fra sig igen. Der er så mange Pokémon at finde og så meget at gøre med dem, at mulighederne næsten synes uendelige - og det bliver aldrig kedeligt, takket været Nintendos eminente design, hvor gameplay [*] altid er alfa og omega.
