If you love games that are real fun and never boring then your
the person that should own Pokemon. The game is a big hit in
Japan and also in the good ole U.S. If you are a real Pokemaniac
then you shouldn't hesitate to buying Pokemon it is a real
suspeceful game. Just about every turn you go to on this game
something exciting happens like, you found a rare Pokemon or
even you caught a Pikachu! Trust me if you get the game you wont
regret buying it!
Graphics 9.0 out of 10
The graphics in these two versions are exactly the same. But
while playing the game on regular Game Boy the graphics are not
as good as the ones on Color Game Boy. But all in all I'd say the
graphics are pretty good. The head character Ash Ketchum looks
just like he does in the cartoon series. The detail of the land around
you is pretty well designed for Game Boy.
Music and Sound 8.5 out of 10
The sound is really not the best thing but it is pretty good when
you catch a Pokemon they make funny noises. When your opponent
throws and attack at you it gives a cool sound of what it might be
doing for instance if you gave someone and electric shock it would
sound like (tshhhhhhhhht!) The music is pretty good! The themes
are really nice and just the plain ole music is pretty good too!
Game Challenge 9.1 out of 10
The game challenge is hard and easy depends if you know what your
doing or if you don't. If you do know what your doing then you will be
ok in some hard parts like catching Pokemon or fighting your opponents.
There are a lot of people you have to fight in the game even Pokemon
who don't even have trainers these Pokemon are called wild Pokemon.
If you don't know what you are doing maybe you should get an official
players guide I suggest that you get Prima because it is well detailed
and really good explained!
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
Well what can I say but the game play-fun is perfect you will never
stop playing it if you have played it even for a moment. The game play
is exciting cause you always get to fight other Pokemon all the time
and you also get to fight the gym leaders if you defeat the gym leaders
you get to receive a badge for beating a gym leader.
There is little frustration in this game. The only frustration in
this game is getting beat by a Pokemon trainer or a gym leader.
Like I said there is no frustration at all
Replayability 9.5 out of 10
If you play this game once you always want to play it again and again.
You always save then you can quit and come back to it later and keep
on collecting your Pokemon.
Game Value 10 out of 10
If you already don't have this game I suggest you go and purchase
it right away. It's worth your money and it's worth your time. Trust
me on this one I spend most of my time playing Pokemon.
Overall 10 out of 10
Overall you should know by now that you need to get this game.
This is one of the finest games that ever came out since Final
Fantasy 1, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
