The issue of the repeated clicking needed to fight, for starters why is this such an issue? Most games require almost constant clicking during combat why is it a crime for it to exist here? Also I seem to remember in the intro section it tells you to click and hold for continuous attacking, so that's already solved that issue.
Secondly people saying it doesn't work on their computer, either your computer isn't good enough and you should have looked before you bought or is a simple error that can normally be fixed by doing this magic called re installing. Also giving a game a bad review because it doesn't work on your rig is ridiculous, you haven't played the game yet to review, so you're just throwing a tantrum. Yes it might be frustrating, I've had many game I couldn't play when I wanted to that are still amazing games so don't harm the name just because you want to have it all your way, problems occur, its a game not a divine artifact of perfection.
Finally to those saying its unplayable on their graphics cards, if your motherboard is pants then the graphics card make no difference, I have a GTX 770, not the best but not the worst, I've seen people on here with better cards complain it wont run on medium, which is interesting and I've got mine at a custom of the two highest setting and I'm getting 50 FPS. Either these people are lying, misinformed about their own cards, need a better motherboard or simply have messed the computers up and need repairs in one form or another.
As to the Actual review of the game, it's stunning, I had to show my mother, who never played games because they never looked real, and she was amazed by it, I was amazed by it ( I do not live with my mother, don't look at me like that). This is the kind of game that I'd be proud of making for the looks alone, there are places that look almost real and it's amazing to look at.
Gameplay is great, I love the choice of combat systems, being able to switch things up at any time, if you've got a strategy then by all mean you can get it down to the letter and if you're in the mood you can run at the opponent swinging at them like a mad man. I like the new informal conversation wheel, before everything felt intense, talking about nugs was an intense experience with the cameras so close ( didn't notice at the time) but now the camera lets you move your view if you're sick of someones face or you just wanna gaze lovingly into your own eyes if you want to. The conversations themselves are interesting, especially with the people you meet being fountains of knowledge mostly. I've not spoken to anyone and thought that they were a waste of time.
As I've said before the game runs really smoothly and I've yet to encounter an issue, that's not to say there wont be issues for everyone, it's a game and every game has issues for some people.
I'd advise you play it, it's a great game that I have yet to personally see a flaw in. Could it be love, maybe but that's not important, buy the game if you want a good time and if you see this a few years down the line, defiantly buy the game because it'll be a bargain now.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Dec 26, 2012I'll admit that I dislike most pokemon that appeared after Silver and Gold but I still bought all of the games and I did enjoy playing them,I'll admit that I dislike most pokemon that appeared after Silver and Gold but I still bought all of the games and I did enjoy playing them, even if my pokemon looked like a lab experiment gone wrong! I managed to get through White but couldn't bring myself to go another lap around the Pokemon White track. Now I've faced my biggest challenge of all, Pokemon White Version 2... I had my doubts when I bought the game and to be honest I shouldn't have tried it but I made that mistake and I can honestly say that this was Terrible. Pokemon is about being able to like your pokemon and be happy and a little proud at how well you're little guys are doing, this game made me want to drown each and every one of the ugly critters. What happened to pokemon that looked cool or cute? Now we have pokemon that are just blobs stuck together and make pained gargling sounds.
The new Rival system that seems to have come about is tedious as I don't feel the need to beat them like I once did, Oaks grandson thought he was the sun and we all revolved around him, I played that game not to be the best trainer but to knock him from his high horse. When I played Silver my rival was a crook who I was determined to show the error of his ways, even Ruby, which had your rival as a friend was great as it felt fresh and like a new direction. Now we receive the same back story almost like the developers are scared of inter human violence! The game is about animal beating the stuffing out of each other for crying out loud! There are many issues that I have with this game but the bottom line is that I find it unplayable. I am not interested in the pokemon or the characters and I couldn't care less if the Unova region sank into the sea. The thing I realised from this game is that 'Just because you have millions of ideas, doesn't mean you need to show them all off as sometime it destroys what you already had'
Of course this is just my view on the game. I will always think that the Kento and Johto pokemon are the best.… Expand
