Overall the visuals for creatures and terrain are crisp, sharp, and Pokemon-perfect even if the sounds are a little too sweet. Dash might not make much of a splash, but it should be a good kid-pleaser.
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]
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.
So warning to all, if you wish to play an enjoyable and gripping game, with a long lifespan, then do not buy Pokemon Dash. If, of course, you just want a senseless game where you play with Pikachu and you wish for a sore hand from constant rubbing, then I urge you to buy this game straight away.
A really uninspired racing game. It seems to be aimed at kids as young as a fetus with the exception of the sudden increase in difficulty that even gave me a headache. And not because it was challenging but because it's annoyingly difficult due to the lack of control.
It’s pretty clear that Pokemon Dash is a game for very young kids, the 6 and under crowd, although I can also see this game appealing to grandmothers. The problem is, it’s barely any fun for either demographic, and members of both might wind up trying to eat the stylus.
Christmas 2006. I asked Santa to offer me a Pokémon game. There is no word to describe the deception when I opened this 'present'. I was expecting something like 'Pokémon Ranger', 'Pokémon Emerald' (on GBA) or something, but no, I had 'Pokémon Dash'. I was even prepared to live another passionate adventure. I didn't need to play it for more than an hour to realize I had been fooled.
Terrible colours, mind-numbing repetitive gameplay, unoriginal, awful soundtrack, the possibility to play only one character (Pikachu), same opponents every race, just absolutely not the 'Pokémon: Gotta Catch'em All' atmosphere. Yeah it had multiplyer mode. You just had to find friends ready to get bored and dumber with you. At least it showed someting like eight different animated Pokémon, how amazing.
This game will scratch up your DS' touch screen a ton without a screen protector. Managed to scratch my screen protector a ton playing this game. Only being able to use Pikachu is another big negative. This game was made in Gen 3's twilight years and made obsolete overnight by Gen 4 Diamond and Pearl also for the DS.
SummaryHelp Pikachu race to the finish line in Pokemon Dash, the first Pokemon title for the Nintendo DS. Using the touch screen, keep Pikachu running toward the finish line by rubbing the screen in the direction you want the Electric-type Pokemon to go. The faster you rub, the faster Pikachu runs. The gameplay takes place from an overhead per...
