    Pokémon LeafGreen and Pokémon FireRed draw you into the mesmerizing world of strange little creatures no matter how many times you've been there before.

    FireRed and LeafGreen should appeal to those who wish to relive the original Red/Blue experience with updated graphics and conveniences.

    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.
  4. 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.

    If you like wasting small bits of time here and there with your GBA - and especially if you're new to the series - this is still the best thing you get get on the portable. [Nov 2004, p.134]

    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.

The storyline was great, the graphics were the average good gameboy type, and of course the sound effects were nice. The only issues I've ever had with the game is the fact that I have both fire red and leaf green, never realizing when I picked it up that the only difference was some different types of Pokemon. I did give it to my brother who is a few years older than me and he loved it. Overall, the game is great. The newer games definitely are terrible, but these old classics are great. Expand
