    PokePark 2 is, more or less, on the same footing as the Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball games. It's much more kid friendly, of course. But like DOA Extreme Beach Volleyball and Xtreme 2, PokePark 2 is all about playing nice and doing favours (or maybe even "battling") in hopes of acquiring more friends in this world devoid of humans trying to stuff unwitting creatures into Pokeballs.

    Overall, the game looks nice, but there's nothing truly beautiful about it. The gameplay and story are solid, but nothing really stands out.
  3. A decent game, but samey and too like the first title to be a real must-buy. [Apr 2012, p.98]

    The game is, simply put, harmless. PokéPark 2: Wonder's Beyond is made for kids and has a lot of flaws, but it still has enough good sides. The cute design and great music makes up for the repetitive nature of the game.

    PokéPark 2 suffers from clunky controls and a lack of challenge. Only the young Pokémon fans will overlook that for an overall happy and cuddly game.

    Pokepark is largely unchanged since the last time we visited. there are a few new attractions, but the same camera and control annoyances. That said, it's still a very hard game to hate. [Jan 2012, p.107]

    One of the worst introductions to Pokémon - and gaming in general - a small child could suffer. The video games equivalent of corporal punishment.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Absolutely amazing game, geared towards kids but still a masterpiece nonetheless. Obviously not a game for everyone, but if you enjoy pokemon, this game will fit right into your collection. Expand

The game will give you many hours of play if you want to complete it to 100. I really like that there are four playable characters and such a variety of scenarios. Highly recommended. Expand

First of all, the graphics are phenomenal. They hold up today and are great for on the Wii. The soundtrack was fine, nothing too amazing or stand out but it was good and did its job. The story was good, with a solid ending and pretty good characters. The biggest limiting factor was the lack of attractions, with only 4 in the game and only one of them being one I actively chose to keep replaying. This game shines the most in its main gameplay- making friends. There are so many Pokémon to befriend, around 200. They all have really nice models and unique animations. I noticed that there were so many nice animations, from unique loading screens to every single skill/attack level up having a cute cutscene of the characters training that skill with their mentor. There is also a massive post game with new areas and a new story to complete, and a ton of friends that you can make. All around, it is a very cute game that offers a ton of fun. Expand

Sure, it has its drawbacks, but it's a funAs you guys may remember from my review, I actually enjoyed "Poképark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure." Sure, it has its drawbacks, but it's a fun little adventure for the short time it lasts. So, when I heard that a new "Poképark" game was being released, known as "Poképark 2: Wonders Beyond," I was reasonably excited. Even though the reviews were less than stellar for this one, so too were the reviews of the first game, and I still walked away from that one quite happy. And ultimately, I walked away from this game even happier.
    "Poképark 2: Wonders Beyond" retains many of the great things about the original game: the vibrant and colorful visuals, the simple but fun and accessible gameplay, and the appearance of a lot of different types of Pokémon. However, along with these things, this new adventure brought about some nice changes as well: the visuals have been polished up compared to the first game, as shown through the more detailed and smoother animations on the characters, the combat is a bit better in that the Pokémon have brand new, more varied sets of attacks in the game, the controls have been refined a bit to feel a lot less frustrating, and the story is quite different from the last entry. Don't let the colorful, vibrant artwork on the front cover fool you, this game's story is actually far more developed, and a bit darker, than "Poképark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure," and all the better for it, as it makes things a bit more interesting. And, while the music in the first game was good and enjoyable, I actually found quite a few of the tracks in this game to be even better. It's clear this entry was far more polished than the last, and it's all the better for it.
    There are a few minor flaws with this game: once again, it does get a bit repetitive, and the ending of the game once again feels like it was built around the idea of padding. The game also isn't all that long, and you may not find much reason to go back to it after one play, and finally, the fact that there are fewer minigames this time around does hurt a little bit.
    Even so, these are just minor flaws in a game that, surprisingly enough, actually feels like an improvement on its predecessor. "Poképark 2: Wonders Beyond" is a really enjoyable game and I definitely suggest giving it a play. It isn't the longest game in the world, but while it lasts, you should enjoy yourself with it. I sure did.
    Final rating: 8 out of 10 "Great"

    A lot of conversation and a little action. The graphics are great, but the game is boring.
