Excerpt: POKEMON'S SUCCESS IN NORTH AMERICA Nintendo’s Pokemon RPG games have always had the addictive qualities of capturing gamer’s sense of adventure and exploration as they attempted to capture all the different types of Pokemon to train for battle and the upcoming Pokemon Colosseum looks to be just as addictive if not more. Pokemon has taken North American gamers by storm with the RPG series already having sold 38 million games in the region.
Excerpt: Pokemon Colosseum is a fun game from developer Genius Sonority. While it could have included a better story and graphics, this game shows that sometimes having fun is all that really matters. As I played through the game I enjoyed the admirable attempt the developer went into creating this Pokemon game with a slightly more mature and darker tone to it than in past Pokemon games that have been released.
Excerpt: Lets just say this if Pokmon wasnt around either would be Nintendo, Sad but True. However since it is Nintendo’s most popular franchises (well depends who you talk to) and the Pokmon RPG’s are pretty good games. It when you come to the Cash-in’s on the Pokmon Games that it gets sketchy, there has been some good ones (Pokmon Stadium 2) and some very average (Pokmon Snap) and the Shockingly Boring (Pokmon Channel).
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: This game is a great addition to a Pokemon fan's collection, but if you've never played Pokemon before, then I strongly suggest you buy yourself one of the GBA versions before you buy this game.
