    What a wonderful little action game. The graphics pop, the control is simple and any person could jump in and play. The music is big and full with an over world melody that will keep you going. The possibility of collecting 600 Pokemon without having to do the hokey pokey is also a nice, especially for busy gamers. And speaking of the actual little monsters, the models are cute and lend themselves to the toy theme. Pokemon Rumble Blast is a simple fun game that is addictive and straight forward. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Is a wonderful Pokémon 3D game, I highly recommend the game for fans of this franchise and new players. It's a very fun and entertaining. It should not be based on the graphics if you see looks good or looks bad maybe there who appreciate the history, game mode (which is very good). This really recommended. Expand

    The critics are correct that this game is not tremendously varied, but if you were a fan of the Wii game, this is a nice upgrade and port to the 3DS. Game play is quick, with just enough of the original Pokemon strategy to make your progress dependent on moves and skills you learn as you move through the game.

    Pokemon Rumble Blast is a game you can pick up and play for 5 minutes or 5 hours. While the gameplay can get repetitive if played for too long in one sitting, its simplistic style makes it the perfect game to help you unwind after a long day. It is not as involved or well done as the main games in the series, but it is a fun game for Pokemon fans who want to collect all the toy Pokemon in 3D and is a good sequel to the first game, Pokemon Rumble for the Wii.

    Hey, guys, this review is strictly from my 7 year old son, and this is his words. This game is great because you get to capture legendary Pokemon fairly easy. You also have a lot of things that you can continue to do after you have beaten the game. It's fun to try and capture some of the hardest ones on the game, like Zekrom and Reshiram. For a young kid, the fighting is the most exciting part. It doesn't have a lot of depth to the story like some of the other games, but for a young kid, it drew him into the Pokemon world. Expand

    You can't really say that this is a true Pokemon game, and a decent game for that matter. Just wait for the true 3DS Pokemon that is under development.

    Since assembling a team is more luck than judgment, Rumble couldn't be further away from the core values of the traditional Pokemon games. [Issue#118, p.110]

    Unless you're the kind of fan who already owns every Pokémon game and knows everything about the creatures and characters, you're bound to lose interest quickly due to the extreme simplicity and lack of depth, and return to the more ambitious chapters of the series.
