    Playing New Pokémon Snap filled me with a joy and excitement that I haven’t felt from a game in a while. Though it has its minor flaws, it really is an experience worth playing that offers gameplay you won’t find elsewhere.

    New Pokémon Snap is a heartwarming trip down nostalgia lane. With a huge range of levels, gorgeous graphics, and a relaxing soundtrack, it’s hard not to enjoy every minute you spend in the Lental region.

    A very nice evolution over the original Pokémon Snap, this new chapter is excellent for young players and nice for experienced users too.

    New Pokémon Snap is a photography game with occasionally clunky progression, but which is eager to show off its delightful subjects and let them surprise you.

    New Pokémon Snap brings the spirit of the original game to a brand new generation on the Nintendo Switch. With breath-taking visuals, tight gameplay, and an unmistakable Pokémon charm, this title is a relaxing and laid-back experience worth exploring.

    A pleasant experience that will easily appeal to fans of the original opus, and even to newcomers.

    But by stripping the Pokémon of anything that feels organic, Nintendo has effectively made its critters feel like wind-up toys, removing the romanticism and mystique that should always come through witnessing raw, unbridled nature. They took these untamed lands and tamed them before we even got there. Unfortunately, the resultant game is as exciting as you’d imagine.

The game is fine. Its not a traditional pokemon game and never has been. It keeps with the originals formula and adds in SOME of the new pokemon. The whole game is set on "rails" and its a decent challenge to snap the picture in time with the right boxes ticked off. Im giving it a 10 because so far im enjoying a game that i knew who it would be going into it. Expand

    Uno de los spin-offs de Pokémon más cuidados en términos generales.
    Lo recomiendo mucho para los fans más cercanos a la saga.

    Sus mecánicas jugables son similares a las de N64 con añadidos y su apartado gráfico y artístico es sobresaliente
