    The game is pretty fun- if you happen to be a huge pokemon fan under the age of, say, 12. Oh, and when the interface works: which it too often doesn't. Rent, don't buy.

    All you can just do in this game is watch the many fourth walls getting broken everytime you try to talk to Pikachu. Sounds fun, right? Well, not when the first hour's already over.

    In metascore I would rate this a 57. The game microphone is good but the system doesn't read it well. Watching and talking to pikachu is a pain and the gameplay gets harder and harder but it is pikachu so I just have to give it an okay rating.

    Hinging on a technological gimmick and the Pokémon license, the game falls well short of the standard set by previous Pokémon titles.

    But if you're looking for more than a distraction for the kids, a learning tool perfectly disguised as a game, then consider Nintendo's Hey You, Pikachu!.
  3. Once you give it a closer look, Hey You, Pikachu! is a highly addictive game that both children and adults can enjoy.
