Graphics 9 out of 10
Just because this is a Game Boy game doesn't mean that it can't
have good graphics. I love the new graphics compared to the older
ones. True to the fact that some of the new sprites for the animals
do tend to look a little worse, but overall, the new monsters look
Music and Sound 6 out of 10
The sound is the exact same as the older Red and Blue versions.
I mean, come on, you can't make the exact same game and expect
not to have anything new. The sound of the entire game has improved
over the older versions but, that doesn't mean that the game is
going to improve as much as the Final Fantasy Anthology over the
original Final Fantasy 5 & 6. But I will admit that the sound effects
and all other sounds have changed in tonality from the original versions.
Game Challenge 4 out of 10
Let's face it: once easy, always easy! This game's challenge is
the exact same from the original games of the series and it isn't
surprising. If you plan to remake a game, you need to add a couple
of little extras. I'm expecting to find that this game will sell over a
100,000 copies, but it just needs to be unique.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
Lookie! This game is just so much fun that you can't put it down
for twenty minutes. Believe me I've tried it, and it didn't work!
How hard can it be to put a game like this down? On a scale of
1 to 10, I give an 11. Why is it so much fun to collect so many
different monsters and pit them against one another? Maybe you
can trace it all the way back to the early medieval days of kings
and queens......oops......I thought I was in Etymolgy, my bad. But
this game is so much fun you can't touch it with a ten - foot pole.
The only frustration I have is trying to get into that crusty old
town of Saffron. Let's face it, that just plain confuses the heck
out of you, doesn't it? Personally I wish you could take out a
de-atomizer and fry those dumb little police officers!
Once you get all 150 Pokemon, they're not going to start all over unless
they did something tragic like lose a Squirtle of something.....oops.....
again. But, no you would have to be an idiot to do something like that.
Game Value 10 out of 10
Even though you have the exact same game on your hands, it was
worth the price. Heck I only paid $19.99 for mine, and I love it as
much as when I got Red and Blue for my birthday. I can't wait for
the day when Gold and Silver come out.
Overall 39 out of 60
Overall, I'll put it this way: This game is too lovable to put down!
You can't tell me that this game sucks, well you probably could,
but who cares?! This game is one of the best ever made and if
you don't like it, you should be drug out into the street and shot!
I may give this a bad overall rating, but don't take it the wrong
way. This is the exact same game as before and you can expect
a rating like this out of a true gamer.
