Pokémon White Version 2 Review | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "It’s Pokémon, but not quite as you remember it. Whilst the core mechanics remain the same as when the series first burst onto the stage, something’s changed. The game is still as solid as ever, with 649 Pokémon ready to be commanded by the benevolent trainer you control, but things feel different. The difficulty curve is jagged, meaning you can enjoy the game and power through the gyms fairly easily, but the extraneous stuff and the occasional random battle can be confusingly overwhelming.

If you’re looking for another outing of those lovable Pokémon, then Black and White Version 2 continue the changes brought about by their unnumbered predecessors. Whilst still undoubtedly fun and still as addictive as before, it’s a real worry that the simplistic formula that made the series such a hit in the first place has become more strained and diluted than ever before. White Version 2, the one I spent my time with, is a good instalment in a great series, and that’s its only real problem; the magic is wearing off." (Nintendo DS, Pokémon Black Version 2, Pokemon White Version 2) 8/10
