Diehard GameFAN: Pokemon Black & White Version 2 Review

DHGF: Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 are the latest entries in the franchise, but it’s also the weakest release of the core RPGs yet. There’s just not enough new content here to justify their existence, especially when compared to previous .5/remixed releases like Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, and Platinum. All you’re really getting here are a few new forms, a graphical overhaul you will either like or hate, a terrible new storyline, and a few tiny additions here and there that don’t justify full retail price. I’m a huge Pokémon fan, but even I’m vastly disappointed by what’s here. It’s not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, but it pales in comparison when held up to any of the previous core turn based RPG releases. In many ways, Pokémon fans will complain about this release for the same reason sports fans complain when their title of choice is released yearly with little more than a roster update and/or a few steps backwards. Let’s hope this is a one off rather than Game Freak and Nintendo focusing on cash grabs over quality. (Nintendo DS, Pokémon Black and White Version 2) -
