Sure Pokémon Platinum may not exactly seem like the manliest game, but with a sound battle system, a lengthy main quest, and a variety of multiplayer options, it may just be the best hand held RPG available right now.
Since I was played gen 3 pokemon game, this one version gen 4 is more than an improvement from the previous diamond and pearl. It was far more better than I expected, the intro was epic, the difficulty was balanced, enhanced pokedex, upgraded ui, the villain was more villain than the diamond and pearl, the distortion world is fricking shocker and etc. It's all mixed altogether into a masterpiece. I love the sinnoh pokemon, it was great, a lot of varieties and pretty nice design. But I was dissapointed when the copies sold was far than the expectation, although the quality they've given we're really great to fixed the sinnoh region. This version will goes into my heart, and it will be my best pokemon I've ever played.
This game is absolutely perfect, at least for me.
It has the best story of any pokemon game (again, for me), and an incredible roster of new pokemon like Infernape, Torterra, Luxray, Staraptor, Lucario, Mamoswine, Weavile, Gliscor, Floatzel, Togekiss, Garchomp, Roserade and so on.
It also has a really balanced dificulty, an incredible champion, the best legendary backstories, pretty graphics, etc. This game brings back childhood memories like no other, and for that it's a 10 for me.
Literally the best version of the game and one of best pokemon games ever made and I fact even better than of diamond and pearl
Its funny to think this is sthe best version of the game cause brilliant diamond and shining pearl were worse than the original games
A very by-the-book pokemon game, but solid nonetheless. Good pokemon designs, decent leveling curve, passable story, a champion that’s way easier than everyone says she is, and a decently non-linear region that comes at the cost of the sheer number of HMs you need, requiring you to sacrifice a third of your team’s movepool just to navigate the region
Pokémon Platinum adds a modest amount of new content to the experience of Diamond and Pearl. An expanded final act for the story, more spotlight given to certain characters, a couple of new areas to explore and new additional facilities to visit after completing the main campaign, where players can test their skills in engaging challenging battles, fighting with handicaps or special variations. All of this makes Platinum the definitive Sinnoh experience for sure, but none of the additions are incredible enough to make a meaningful difference and none of the major issues of DP are resolved.
I'm a veteran player who played all games with no exception, but this came with a price: when taking my fanboyism behind, this game is BAD. It's not even due its problems but mostly due it's complete lack of change when compared to diamond pearl. Even the low speed of everything wasn't fixed, almost nothing new to do anywhere, and the pokedex, while slightly changed, is still really bad and with few options. Bored me to death. Tried to give it a second chance really: BORED me to death.
Games like USUM and B2 did a vastly superior job at having a third version that's actually fresh and worthy of playing, so I say if you don't know the series: play them instead.
