Summary: We got this from the library and my 5 year old liked it. He doesn't really have the coordination or the interest to learn how to play it, so he forced me to play it. His favorite is going around and making friends with all the different pokemon and then going through the list to see who's missing. I think there are around 160 characters if I remember correctly.
Summary: The other reviews pretty much say it all, but I will add this: This title does NOT have connectivity to other games. It is a stand-alone. Challenging enough for this Mom and my daughter loves the mini-games. A nice addition for the poke-freak who's Gotta Collect 'em All (the games, that is).
Summary: I bought this game at the beginning of last year, because I was curious and hey, it's a Pokemon game. Let me just say that there was nothing that made me happier in this game than being able to hear the spoken cry of an Umbreon. It's adorable, yes, but I managed to finish it in about three days flat. But again, I am 18, so it wasn't even slightly a challenge for me. But it is cute, and it is amusing, and I don't regret buying it.
Summary: If you even have the slightest liking to pokemon, you will love this game. It is aimed towards smaller children, so gameplay is easy. It's really fun to live in the world of pokemon. The graphics are stunning, if I do say so myself. The 3D models are extremely accurate. It takes a little while to beat the game compared to what you would expect. Gameplay could be slow at times. Just note this isn't anything like a standard pokemon game... Pretty addicting though.
Summary: Well, funny enough, this game is a little too nice. My boy has been through it already however, I think, ultimately, it needs a little bit more excitement. As is, it is probably compelling for a talented 6 year old, who can understand how to use the hardware. Otherwise, this game is lacking a little punch. Parents, don't worry about too much "rock 'em/sock 'em" violence with this game. It's tame, tame, tame. The message here is: probably too tame.
Summary: My kids, 10 & 12, got through the game plot quickly - in a matter of days. But, now they are on a quest to find and befriend all of the Pokemon, and that is keeping their interest. They also like to go back to individual games and try to beat their high scores. So overall, they think it's fun and I feel like I got my money's worth since they are still playing it.
