I know, that's probably the least most journalistic way I could review this game, but it's true. This game is a joy to play. Maybe it's because I never did play the original Sapphire/Ruby titles back in the day, so picking this up feels like an even bigger treat. There is a lot Alpha Sapphire has to offer, with the addition of many new features – although some have sadly been removed as well."
