Excerpt: Over the years, Pokemon has made constant changes to its basic combat system, eventually resulting in a system that is wonderfully balanced and provides a wealth of customization options to advanced players without making things too terribly complicated for beginners. Where Pokemon Battle Revolution goes horribly awry is where it decides to completely shuck all of the secondary aspects of the Pokemon series, such as the plot, the capture-and-train theme, and the sense of...
Conclusion: In case you haven’t figured it out by now, Tetris Party is aimed more at multiplayer than it is at delivering a solid single player experience. The latter is definitely dull and loses its shine only after a couple of hours, but the former is where the game excels. Get a couple of friends over, give them a Wii Remote each, and have a party! It’s the same-old Tetris we’ve come to love, plus a few new game modes.
Excerpt: Well, I’ve probably already lost all my credibility by reviewing a Pokemon game, but because of the bad TV show, people who play Pokemon games are branded as immature children. What most people don’t understand is that the main Pokemon games are actually well-crafted RPGs. However, does this peripheral installment in the best selling RPG series of all time live up to the standard set before it?
Pros: Nice and colourful, Pokemon sounds are authentic, Attack sounds are good, Not too bad, Does what it was marketed to do (have Pokemon battles on a TV)
Cons: A few small inconsistencies in battle animations, Announcer is irritating and repetitive, Not too good, Does nothing beyond its marketed purpose, Online suffers from the curse of Nintendo WFC, Rental battles have no variety, Nothing particularly memorable, No reason to play it after completion of main quest
Summary: Parents need to know that this game offers an extremely narrow gaming experience. Gamers should think of it as an add-on to the Nintendo DS Pokemon Diamond/Pearl experience and should only consider buying it if you already own one of those two games. It's all about participating in battles using Pokemon that you upload from your Pokemon Diamond/Pearl DS games. Pokemon fans may have a hard time ending play, so a timer may be a good companion.
Excerpt: Warning: This Review Spares No One in its Use of Terrible Puns PIKAWHO?! On September 30, 1998 Pokémon Red & Blue spread across the states like the plague spread in the middle ages. Since, Pokémon has left its mark on a variety of systems including every handheld (Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and DS), as well as Nintendo 64, GameCube, and now Wii.
Excerpt: The first of these elements is color. Scattered throughout the levels are various doors and switches which require your blob to be a certain color to activate. To change the color of your blob simply roll through a red, green or blue color sprayer. The strategy comes in when you need to create colors like yellow, purple, or sky blue to reach a goal. How do you create these colors?
Pros: 150 Levels, Top Notch Controls, Unique puzzle elements, fresh take on the genre
Conclusion: 1) The gameplay was so poor on the stand alone
game that I went out and bought Pokemon Pearl. I couldn�t in all
conscience review this game without testing the import feature and I�m
glad that I did. The game is much less mind-numbing when you have
more Pokemon to choose from.
