4.0 out of 5 stars Good But Not Perfect., November 5, 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Pokémon Black Version 2 (Video Game)
Okay, let me start off by saying I've played every generation of Pokemon game starting with Blue. I've always loved pokemon games and Black was one of the coolest I had played. So naturally I was very excited about the release of Black 2 and bought it the day it came out.

As in most pokemon games, you start out in your house with your mom. Then you meet your friend/rival, get your starter pokemon, try to fill the pokedex, battle the bad guys, and obtain the gym badges.

After completing the main game, I found myself a little disappointed in the story. The original Black had an amazing story. Even though you were still trying to beat Team___, it was unlike any other story in a pokemon game I had played. The story in Black 2 was similar in that sense, but it just wasn't as good.

There are also no new pokemon to catch, just old ones with new forms. You would think they would want to add at least 1 to make the total 650. It's alright though, because they added in more Pokemon from past generations to help make up for this.

This game also introduces new areas and features. One of the first you will see is this "key item" called medal box. This keeps a record of different achievements you've completed in the game such as; taking 20,000 steps, catching a shiny pokemon, earning 1,000,000 exp in a day, ect. I find this feature to be both good and bad. It's cool because it shows everyone the hard work you've done to earn certain medals. It's annoying because you may find yourself doing things you wouldn't normally or want to do for the sake of collecting the medal. After careful consideration I decided I would prefer a game without this feature. Although, others will probably enjoy it.

My biggest gripe with this game is the fact that they added some stuff that makes you have to use the Passerby on your C-gear. I'm sorry, but who wants to walk around all day long holding their DS and praying someone else around them is doing the same. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good battle with a friend or trade on Wi-Fi, but the Passby feature should never have to be used to fully beat a game.

Now the cool features in this game. The Pokemon World Tournament is probably my favorite new feature of this game. I don't want to give anything away, but it's nice to see some old faces. Where was this in black? XD The gyms got upgraded, too.
Again seeing some older pokemon makes this game more fun. Making movies is pretty interesting as well.
One of the most useful features they added is a habitat list. This is a list of all the pokemon that can be found in each area. This is especially helpful for when you're trying to fill the pokedex! There are many other fun features for players to discover such as Unova Link and the Pokemon Dream World. It's a blast to explore it all!

The graphics and sound are good. Very similar to Black.

All in all, despite my gripes, I really enjoyed this game. It added more things to do and explore. It's a cool game for any Pokemon fan! Go catch them all!
