Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon represent everything Game Freak has worked towards in its 20 years of growing the Pokémon franchise. It has its flaws, as every game does, but they don't detract from the lively world, incredible writing, and sheer fun that the game provides. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are likely the last big games to be released on the 3DS, and Game Freak sees the console out with a game that will be remembered as a shining example of what the series can do when at its best.
Much more a refinement of what came before than a new entry, Pokémon Ultra Moon is very deceptive, as what begins as minor story and backdrop alterations becomes so much more as the game progresses. There is still a great sense of familiarity that may understandably disappoint for a full price purchase, but buyers will find what ultimately ends up as a title highlight for the whole series, and a tantalising glimpse into the future on Nintendo Switch.
anche se da molti disprezzati per me sono comodamente rientrare tra i 5 giochi pokemon migliori di sempre e con una trama che a tratti ricorda quei capolavori di nero e bianco, anche se il game play è fin troppo guidato con poco margine di esplorazione, graficamente parlando li ritengo nella media dove pokemon ancora non aveva avuto il suo decadimento con i recenti giochi su switch, la difficoltà si può dire che è fin troppo superiore a quella di giochi sia precedenti che successivi. Il post game lo si può definire quasi infinito grazie alla presenza dell'ultra varco esplorabile dove trovare leggendari e pokemon estranei al dex di questi giochi. in conclusione sono i giochi che consiglio di più per approcciarsi alla saga insieme a Nero e bianco e heart gold e soul silver.
Unless you can't live without a few new pokémon, Pokémon Ultrasun is a must have if and only if you still haven't played neither Sun or Moon. Postgame content is meatier but most of the game looks and plays too similar to Sun or Moon.
For players that skipped Sun and Moon, there is more than enough new stuff here to make this the ultimate way to play. Returning players will definitely be left with a strong sense of deja vu, but if they finished everything last year's game had to offer and were hungry for more they could still get their money's worth here, especially if they're up for a big dose of nostalgia.
If you skipped Sun and Moon last year, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are must-buys. Sci-fi storytelling, plenty of new content and adorable critters all included, but feels too soon a release to make the most of the innovation.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are fine games by virtue of being Pokemon games. They have the same fun battling and collecting mechanics you’d expect and offer an opportunity to re-explore the gorgeous and lore-rich Alola region. But their butchered retelling of Sun and Moon’s story and the addition of the obnoxious RotomDex should once again have you questioning why you would pay full price for almost the same game a year later.
Pokémon Ultra Moon adds a significant amount of new content to the original Moon, with a richer Pokémon selection, new areas that expand on the original lore, a surprisingly fun and polished new surfing minigame, new challenges and overall a decisively higher difficulty making for a much more engaging experience. Massive changes were made to the narrative as well, ultimately making it notably worse. As much as the new characters and plotpoints introduced have potential they're sorely underdeveloped and introduced quite haphazardly, and the greater scope of the new storyline often awkwardly clashes with the more intimate story told in the original game as some important scenes of character development have been entirely removed, leaving the whole narrative feeling somewhat disconnected. Nevertheless, a new grandiose story episode was added after the main campaign, which creatively builds on the new concepts introduced to craft a surprising narrative with nostalgic returns that perhaps doesn't take itself seriously enough, but still functions as an extremely fun postgame content and a nice celebration of past narratives. Decisvely better than the original, Ultramoon still greatly suffers from its terribly bland level design and the series' somewhat repetitive gameplay.
An enhanced and better version of Sun & Moon. It's so similar to the first set of games that it makes them redundant. Considering the content, it's just like a remake with slight changes, some new additions. It's basically fixing a pretty mid Pokemon release and making it a little more interesting.
SummaryA new light shines on the Alola region.
Take on the role of a Pokemon Trainer and uncover new tales, and unravel the mystery behind the two forms reminiscent of the Legendary Pokemon. With new story additions and features this earns Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon the name "Ultra!" Another adventure is about to begin.
