  1. The game where yelling at the television is actually productive. [Jan 2004, p.189]

  3. I had a difficult time even playing this game for more than half an hour. It's simply so boring and mundane that I can't see anyone over the age of 10 enjoying this game.

  5. If there were some kind of branch progression throughout the game that allows you to train your Pikachu instead of just playing peek-a-boo with it, this game might have been a little more tolerable.

  7. Even if you dig Pikachu's act, the "game" is ultimately a spirit-crushing, mind-numbing exercise in tedium.

    boring, and most the time pikachu goes off to lala land and does nothing you tell him to do!!!
    It is a great idea, and they should make a new
    version of it with better technology, but dont pick up this old n64 title. Full Review »
