Pokemon Black Version 2 Review [Gamespot]

Gamespot - Despite being plenty of fun and sporting a few new tweaks, Pokemon Black 2 fails to outshine its predecessors. (Nintendo DS, Pokemon Black 2) 6.5/10

Gamespot sucks now.

to be honest this score is about right. Just download the rom and play it. Nothing revolutionary about this game at all. it's still the same old formula with an even worse story.

When you can at least get 16 badges again like Silver and Gold and has a good story then I could give it an 8. But the story was way more dull then the first Black and white. And achievements in this game are so hollow they aren't even worth mentioning. you catch a Pokemon you get an achievement, you get a badge you get an achievement. The achievements are about as satisfying as the ones on the angry bird trilogy and do nothing for you outside of the game. All these achievements are so easy to get and because the DS supports cheat devices I'm sure there will be a code for all the achievements lol. And as far as world Tournaments go you can partake in a real one. the in game world tournament is nothing.

You know what would be revolutionary? Custom character creations, being able to make choices that affect the actual story of the game, and no friendcodes.

your aren't educating anyone. All your are ding is making everyone dumber by you blind fanboyism.

I have yet to see in anyway shape of form you going to different regions and collecting those badges. Your the one trolling. I don't care if every gym leader is in the game, if I can't go to Kanto to take on Brock and Misty, or travel to Sinnoh then what the hell is the point of having all of that? Zero!

And those 300 achievements aren't much of an incentive to collect like lets say xbox or ps3 and steam achievements. Its like collecting the trophies and stickers in brawl. Who else beside you is even going to know? The whole reason you collect trophies and achievements for a game is to show them off.

the advance mode isn't that advance for competitive players, maybe a noob like you but its more of the same.

And the battle frontier is old news.

Only good thing about this game is they brought back the move tutor.

I'm glad someone has finally called nintendo out on thier lather, rinse, repeat formula. There was no need for another DS pokemon game. Pokemon needs to move into the 3d realm and start to tweak it's formula a little bit. I liked the first set and thought that Black and White were a step in the right direction for evolution of the series, but the changes made were still pretty small. Not to mention, the online trade system is broken. (lvl 9 Zekrom anyone?)

Reviewers need to send a message to developers. Innovatation is key. This is not doing it.

Rom isn't out yet... So, why are you lying that you played the game?

Ignore Bloop, he is a clear Pokemon fanboy that tends to go after anyone who says anything negative about Pokemon regardless of how constructive the criticism is.

Haven't they sucked for a while now? If I recall correctly, they've fired people for being honest with their reviews.

Meh, I appreciate gamespots reviews. Its nice to put IGN's overrated review, with gamespots probably underrated review. Put them together and you'll probably the get the real score for Black and white 2.
