  1. A complete makeover is overdue, but Pokemon remains as engrossing as ever.

    Once again, the Pokemon crew create a game that works extremely well for the handheld market. It doesn't have quite the same variety as "Ruby/Sapphire," but it's still incredibly satisfying.
  3. I can't help but shake the feeling that Nintendo cut corners on this game – with both the engine and the storyline already made – and this drags the score down.
  4. The quality of the game remains and it's an essential purchase for those who are new to Pokemon but we can't help feeling the update is a little on the cheap side. [NGC]

    I haven't had any desire to catch 'em all for damn near five years now, but this remake lured me back into the critter-collecting biz. [Nov 2004, p.153]

    The new additions don't add up to more than what we call an expansion pack for a PC game.

    Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you THE Pokemon. none of that Black and White gamees BS. This is what Pokemon is and holds. All though theLadies and Gentleman, I present to you THE Pokemon. none of that Black and White gamees BS. This is what Pokemon is and holds. All though the originals is what started it for me, this game brought back many memories and warmed my heart up. Its really a shame were the Pokemon franchise has now gone. Its just milked for money and no different than Call of Duty. This is a great way to relive the past with some added bonus. A Must Buy For Any Pokemon Fan. Period Expand

The one monotonous thing about this game is the abundance of trainers that you have to fight in certain areas - it gets old and takes away from the re-playability value. Still, the classic remixes, exotic/classic Pokemon, handsome graphics, and marvelous post-game make this game very enjoyable. This is a very respectable remake. Expand
