Reviews 2 Go just finished up their "retro review" of the Pokemon Virtual Console re-releases. Here are their final thoughts:
"Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow are just as difficult and nostalgic as they were back in the 1990s. It’s a huge trip down memory lane, and for others, a way to see how the famed franchise first began. What brings the games down is the lack of a color option in Red and Blue, technical hiccups with jumping and freezing, and the trading and battling options added in being limited to local wireless and not online."
