Kotaku: "That obsessive compulsion is what defines the Pokémon series. It's right there in the tagline: 'Gotta Catch 'Em All'. It kept me playing into the wee hours of the morning when I was a much younger man. It drove me to acquire each iteration of the game since, hoping to rekindle that manic motivation. I've found it again in Pokémon Black and White 2."
