MyGamer writes: "Fans of the Pokemon series know what they are getting with this title - some small tweaks on an otherwise familiar game. What can't be understated, though, is the sheer potency of the single-player experience, which you can't tackle more than once without erasing all the little critters you worked so hard to catch and train. The simple fact that you WILL want to go back and retackle everything, though, just about says everything you need to know about this game. If you're looking to dive into the newest generation of Pokemon, do it with Platinum. I don't have to tell you fans of the series to do this, though. You've probably already done it".
