For anyone new or returning to the Pokémon series, Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl is a perfect starting point that bridges the gap between classic and modern Pokémon games. The quality-of-life additions make the game more accessible without making it feel bloated, the art style is simplistic and cute, and the gameplay mechanics will keep players moving through the adventure with ease. For veterans of the series, these versions are an easy recommendation and an excellent recreation of a fan favorite. With only a few exclusive Pokémon between Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, either one is an excellent choice for any player.
I love every single little detail in Shining Pearl even love the chibi art style, it's reminds me of old days of Pokemon I wouldn't mind if they did this for HeartGold and SoulSilver if they decide to make a port for switch.
These remakes are totally serviceable and a very good time for any Pokémon fan out there. There is however a nagging sense that more perhaps could have been done, especially for fully priced releases. The Pokémon franchise is big, the company behind these games makes millions off of these and yet there is a feeling time and time again that we're not getting the full AAA experience that such selling numbers should warrant, and this is seen very plainly in how technically dated these games look, even if artistically speaking they are still super cute. We are pleased with these remakes for sure, they're jolly good fun... but we're not impressed and this has to change in the future for the franchise!
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have their flaws and are not particularly ambitious remakes, but they’re somehow still fun. I don’t regret the 25 hours I spent with the main story of Brilliant Diamond, and there is enough post-game content to keep me interested for a while longer. I just can’t help but wish that these gems shined just a little bit more brilliantly.
By attempting to remain as faithful as possible to the original games, this remake has ended up with a great deal of problems. While other Pokémon games (including the remakes) have continued to evolve the franchise, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will likely only be enjoyable for players who have a nostalgia for the originals.
This review contains spoilers. Llegué con una antorcha para quemarle la casa a IlCA estudios pero no. Este juego es entretenido, viciante. Sin darte cuenta tienes 20 horas jugando. Para ser un remake me gustó mucho, lo recomiendo. Collapse
In some ways, incredibly frustrating. In others, too smooth for its own good. The exp. share, notorious at this point, carried me through the game. Save for type advantages, you're never incentivized to use a Pokemon for any good reason. Any Pokemon that's lagging in levels will remain that way until every Pokemon floats around the same level for the rest of the game.
Also, the movement controls border on terrible. Never has a Pokemon game required dexterity while navigating the world, and yet, there were one-space wide walkways placed right next to a ledge that truly tested my abilities to swing my character at a tight enough angle to not accidentally hop down the ledge.
With all these issues in mind, the core game is still great, still overall a recommendable Pokemon game, especially on switch.
Tho not the remakes they could of / should have been there not bad games, tho i'm not a fan of the chibi characters or the changing of contest, overall its pretty good. But there are things to not like like how characters look out of battle which is just dumb founding since in battle they use much better character models, i just don't understand why'd they go the chibi style when they had much better models but whatever lets get into the stuff that is actually bad such as movement, there are a lot of times when you'll need to use the D-pad to not fall off edges which is really annoying also even tho the game starts you off not wearing a hat once you get it you can't ever take it off without fully changing outfits which you can't even do til the 3rd gym, lastly and this may just be me being too use to gen 8 and 9 where its super easy to catch pokemon but catching pokemon in this game seem way to hard iv had level 30 pokemon be asleep and in red heath and would brake out of 20 pokeballs in a row like it was nothing where in gen 8 and 9 they can be level 60+ and they'll just get in any type of ball right away and you don't have to put them to sleep or damage them or anything so again maybe i'm just use to it being so easy in thses other games but the catch rates just seem way off **** E4 also stall way too much thankfully the final pokemon only really has earthquake and poison jab so it's easy to bait the ai by swapping between a flying and steel type but my god was it annoying
This game was boring, easy, ugly, and stupid. This game had no reason to be bad. It's a **** Pokémon game it can't be that hard to screw up. Yet, they did. Badly. This game is so basic, and buggy, this was clearly rushed, and barely any love was poured in this stupid port of a **** kids game.
