After all, there was still an adventure there, and even though we weren't participating in deeper-than-you'd-guess turn-based pokemon battles, at least we were exploring the world and befriending one cuddly critter after another. The problem with Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is that two years later, the game is still the same half-baked, "where's the rest of it?" offering we struggled through last time."
* Being back in the Poke-world
* Collecting pokemon, even temporarily
* The Friendship meter
* Too simple and similar to last game
* Gets boring fast
* Lame plot and bonus pokemon
