PKMN HeartGold Version
Pokemon HearGold is half of a pair of remakes of the highly popular Pokemon franchise games, released almost eleven years ago. The games, while still very formulaic, immerse the player into the shoes of the character (named at the player's discretion), and the goal of the game is as well known as the mascot of the series, Pikachu: to catch 'em all, and to gain Gym badges.
The games are the latest entries to the series (at least, here in the states, until March 6th, 2011), and boast powerful graphics and very clear, detailed scenery. Also, the sounds are amazingly presented on the Nintendo DS, and bring the game to life, even further pulling the player into the game.
The 493 different creatures that exist in the Pokemon world are presented in various situations, either as foes, or as possible partners, in an attempt to promote collecting them, and to become a powerful Trainer, with a team capable of taking on the final Champion of the game, who is a surprise return from the original games, Red, Blue, and Yellow.
If you're interested in turn-based games, with incredible graphics, rewarding gameplay, and a solid storyline, then you might want to check this game out, as it might provide a comforting entry into the franchise, or a refreshing look at the games you once loved, and chose to leave, due to creative differences. Either way, this game...it's not a game to pass on.Read full review
