4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty fun, April 7, 2010
This review is from: Pokemon HeartGold Version (Video Game)
I'm going to start off by saying that I am almost twenty, but I still wanted to play this game. It has been very fun so far because I am in college, and I need some entertainment during my downtime. I played red version back when it came out. I was nine years old and i thought it was the coolest game ever. I really didn't play any others because at about that time it became uncool at my age to do anything pokemon. After seeing commercials for this and reading a review, i decided to just try it. From what I have heard this was one of the best pokemon games ever released, and that gave me the urge to try this remake more than anything. It has sixteen badges to win instead of just eight, and there are more pokemon to catch. This game, even though it is targeted at a younger audience, can be fun for older people with an open mind. People my age and a bit older/younger were just growing up when this franchise was starting out, so thats why it seems that many older people are still playing it.
I would say this is really fun because of the day/night thing that matches up to the clock set on the ds. The red version never had that, so it has been fun for me. It also has a nice look. Many complain about how pokemon could do better, but i think it is plenty detailed to be fun. It is a portable game, and really brand new shiny 3d looks aren't gonna matter as much when the fun factor is high enough. The pokemon are fun to catch and train, and the story is fun as well. I definitely think that people wanting to chill out and have some fun should pick this up. As i said earlier, it might be geared for a younger audience, but it is still challenging for me. Training and leveling is entertaining, and striving to catch all the neat looking pokemon i come across is fun. People, just don't judge this before you try it.
I can't say anything about the pokewalker because i really don't feel like walking around with a pokeball on my pocket, and it is a little gimmicky (kinda like blowing in the mic on other ds games). Atleast people didn't have to pay extra for it. I won't knock anyone that wants to use it or play with it, but its just not something for me.
At the end of the day, try this game. Its really high on the nostalgia factor, and its a fun game to play with many ways to strategize. Honestly, all the different types of pokemon (earth, fire, water, lightning, ect.) really add to the difficulty factor. I think people with a ds that want to try a fun, long rpg should just give this a whirl. With the online things, mini-games, 16 badges, tons of pokemon, etc, this game is worth it.

Dude, I'm 21 and not only do I play this game I walk around proudly with the Pokewalker attached to me. I brought this game because I have a defective body, and when you're plauged with one of those theres ALWAYS the need for some sort of phhysical therapy, so I decided tostart walking instead of sitting in my equiment till kingdom come. I walk without any equipment now. Makes my parents happy, and level's up my pokemon! so don't be ashamed that you play Pokemon games, and don't be ashamed about wearing the Pokewalker. Just know theres an even older person out there doing both, you can't feel bad when you think about it like that.
