    Pokemon Dash shows a welcome difference to other pokemon games, taking on an entirely new concept. The game is highly enjoyable, including added features, and works quite surprisingly well. After a while, the style of the game gets boring, but will soak up a couple of hours time every now and again.

    Can't believe I'm saying this but pokemon dash is okay. Sure it is flawed like only playing as pikachu, horrible controls, and more but there is a fair share of good things to offer.

  1. The mix of rules and conditions mean that Dash is unique. It's more of an 'orienteering' game than anything else and while it lasts it's exceedingly good fun, especially in multiplayer. Unfortunately, once you've got the hang of things there's little in the way of extra modes to unlock. [NGC]
  2. Amazingly, the game still manages to be rather fun if you can get past the warts.
  3. Simply one of the laziest uses of the DS's touch screen technology to date, featuring highly repetitive gameplay that gets old before you've even finished your first race.
