5.0 out of 5 stars Best Pokemon Game to Date, March 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pokémon Black Version 2 (Video Game)
Nintendo finally got it right. When pokemon diamond came out several years ago, nintendo showed us better graphics and gameplay that had ever been used on a pokemon game. However, I felt that nintendo failed to capitalize on what truly made the ds special. HeartGold and SoulSilver came next, and I felt that this time, nintendo used the right tech, but missed what consumers wanted. They took a classic game and tried to add little perks that hadn't been there. As a result, you could catch a whopping total of 11 legendaries in the game! That's ridiculous! Then along came Pokemon Black and White. It was a game that I was very skeptical of. After the first Pokemon Games, Red and Blue, the following Pokemon games always had a combination of new and those original 150 Pokemon. 150 NEW pokemon seemed a little odd. But I got it anyway, and it turned out to be the best pokemon game I have ever played. The Unova region was fun and new. And with 100% new pokemon, I was reduced to, "hmmmmm that pokemon looks cool, I think I will catch it." Also, the story was by far the best I had ever played, after all, Team Plasma simply wanted to free pokemon, and how many pokemon trainers do we know have abused their pokemon. Let us count... Then I played Pokemon Black 2. This game again takes place in the Unova region, but this time there are Pokemon from all generations present. I still enjoyed the story, but I found it a bit shallower and not as engaging as Black/White. Still, the game does a nice job of modifying the Unova region enough to keep it new for players who played the original Black/White, and the presence of old pokemon allowed me to easily create a "dream team" with pokemon present from every generation. The only thing I didn't like about the story was the fact that Kyurem takes a huge role, and if you caught Kyurem in Black/White, you will know that Kyurem is a pretty lousy legendary, similar to Heatran in the Diamond/Pearl games. I found that I didn't want to lose the stats and moves that Zekrom had to fuse with Kyurem. But besides from a disappointing mascot, nintendo really has created an amazing game, so definitely check it out.
