Excerpt: Pokemon Stadium was the first in a long line of 3d battle arena Pokemon games. The games primary focus is putting together the ultimate Pokemon team and beating your opponents as you progress through the leagues. This is aided by the fact that the player can transfer his Pokemon from Pokemon Blue, Red and Yellow into the game, through use of the N64's Transfer Pak.
Pros: Good multiplayer fun, has support to play B/R/Y on your TV, has a wide variety of Pokemon .
Cons: Team battles can be annoying, AI can be extremely hard in mini - games .
Excerpt: I first started out with one the original Pokémon™ games, Blue, Red and Yellow on the Gameboy Colour! I was hooked from then on, the enjoyment of the game would never end. However, once games Silver & Gold were released with 100+ more Pokémon™ everything got slightly harder and the game seemed to last forever, including the capture of the 3 legendary dogs, which took what seemed like a lifetime to get. Admittedly, I used a game cartridge to get them.
Excerpt: Pokémon - not the most loved franchise of 2002, to say the least. After it was milked like a cow, with games such as Pokémon Trading Card game and Pokémon Pinball popping up everywhere, gamers everywhere got a bit sick of Nintendo not coming up with any kind of new franchise. But although nowadays people either love it or they hate it, no one can deny that in its time, it was the most addictive games known to man.
Excerpt: This game needs no introduction except to say that it’s the sequel to the ever-brilliant Pokemon Stadium, Pokemon Stadium 2 boasts new monsters, new attacks, updated graphics and new mini games that no Pokemon fan will be able to resist! Pokemon Stadium isn’t just a sequel with little extras here and there it’s got that and more!
Pros: More monsters, more colour and more options than an N64 game outta have !
Excerpt: The worst thing about this game is that the graphics on it are really slow and boring. Pokemon Stadium is not very good when you battle (single player). But the mutiplayer is a bit better though. On the mutiplayer the games are good fun but after a while it does tend to get a bit boring as you're doing the same thing over and over. My favourite game on the mutiplayer has to be the Diglet game.
Excerpt: Pokemon Stadium is the first Pokemon game on the N64. It is basically an enhanced version of the excellent turn-based battles of the original game, except this time its in 3D. The battles in Pokemon Red and Blue were simple looking but great fun. The attacks didn’t look that great, with just simple animations and sound effects. This game hopes to undo that though, as it has made all 151 Pokemon 3D, all of which have their own characteristics and animations.
Excerpt: I recieved this game for christmas and i love it!!! There are many different games to play, not just the main stadium game: You can play your gameboy games using the transfer pack provided. You can play mini games with your friends, you can use your pokemon from the gameboy to play the main game!!! There are many different tournements that you can compete in, there are ones for pokemon levels 15- 25, 25-35 and so on.
Pros: lots of mini games, interacts with gameboy games .
Cons: grafics are not up to standard, tournaments are very slow and simple ! ! !
Excerpt: Buy it for the mini-games alone! To be honest, I was not *that* impressed with the main game, and at 50 quid, it would have to be pretty darn impressive for me to shell out for it (as opposed to playing it on someone else’s N64 as I do now!) However, if the Mini Games were available separately, I wouldn’t hesitate to cough up the “currrching”.
Pros: The Mini Games !
Cons: The annoying voiceover on the main game, the slow action, that the mini games aren't available separately !
Excerpt: After spending most of Boxing day playing 'Pokémon Stadium' I fear that I know just a bit too much about the hybrid little creatures. My 5 year old nephew was given a N64 and this game for christmas and it was a brilliant investment as it kept him (and me- spared me from the after dinner games of charades anyway)occupied during all of the family gatherings. I admit it- I was perhaps a bit too eager to play too.
Excerpt: Are you fed up of pokémon and tired of seeing those silly creatures fighting well if you do u will HATE THIS GAME and will detest it so dont buy it. but for those you like the series and have watched the film e.t.c will love the game playing. the games mostly a fighting one where u battle your pokemon and train them up, it also features mini games that also include pokémon. its priced at £49.99 but u can get it cheaper if you buy a preowned game or bid for it on Ebay.
