EGM: "The story takes a step backward, and the new game modes aren’t that impressive. Mostly, it’s just the same ol’ Jigglypuff song and dance from Pokemon Black/White 2."
Im glad this got a 6.5. More people need to start calling out this series out. Just like most nintendo games, this doesn't even try to do something new to spice up the gameplay or the story.
Anger consumes him.. The truth hurts a lot of ppl on here.. What u said must have really REALLY affected him to the point he had nothing else to say & was name calling.. Wow, how low is that?
You know what's lower? The fact he was so angry that, when he used his bubbles up, he had to create another profile to continue ranting. So pathetic lol.
I strongly disagree i have been playing pokemon since it came out (8 at the time now i'm 23).B/W2 does not feel like B/W 1.5 instead it feels like a whole new game IMO.Especiialy since we cam rebattle the old gym leaders :D. @Mika Oh and the gameplay has changed big time since it came out guess you don't know what EV training is ehh?? http://youtu.be/y1ZOu9WErVg http://youtu.be/sRjnJJ_z9o4 http://youtu.be/r4oV9KP3Rn4 http://youtu.be/5TYhsLLm3Ho http://youtu.be/DdHpc6wcIyo
I don't really think the "oh it's a carbon copy sequel" is a good argument. This is not aiming to be the 6th gen real pokemon sequel that will inevitably hit the 3DS. This game essentially fills the same role as Pokemon Gray would have, only instead of literally being the exact same game they did a sequel that has the region redesigned, added new locations, a new story, etc. If anything this is the least lazy "3rd version" they have ever put out. Though, I'm down for any encouragement to Game Freak to shake up the games archaic "start in small town, beat 8 gym leaders, beat elite 4" formula, even if that encouragement does come in the form of these less-than-stellar reviews.
I know... EGM didn't think bad of Crystal, Emerald, Platinum(that I can remember) and those were 90% the same game over + extras. This is a direct sequel, a FIRST in a pokemon main game(depending on how you file red/ blue~gold/silvers relation) with a completely different adventure... did they even play the game? DISCLAIMER: Based on header paragraph Also, Gamefreek did recently make a brand new game called Harmoknight(Hope I spelled that correctly); a side scrolling rhythm action game for the Eshop in Japan. It most likely will come over here soon...
Pokémon is one of those games that simply doesn't need to change it up, it evolves over time, developing new features and gaining more and more depth.
If this ends up being the average critical response I'll sort of be happy. Those games really need to mix it up a bit.
