So after a while waiting I finally got my hands on one of the new Pokemon games. I have yet to progress that far into the game yet, however I am going to share with you some of my thoughts on the game so far.
The first thing I noticed once starting up the game was that it is certainly the best looking Pokemon game so far. The graphics appear to have depth to it, which is greatly enhanced by slight changes in camera angles that happen at certain intervals in the game. The battles themselves even have a certain depth to them which makes them much more interesting to watch. However anyone who has play a Pokemon game (or any game really) knows that graphics can not carry a game alone.
Aside from the addition of three versus three battles, the core formula of the game is essentially the same as it always have been. This should come as no surprise to anyone being that every game has had the same formula. This provides a familiar experience that, in my opinion remains fun.
On of the interesting things that has surprised me so far is an aspect of the game that has remained relatively absent from the previous games. Yes I am in fact talking about one sort of a story. This is not entirely unwelcome, and does kinda shake things up a bit while keeping true to the original formula.
So far I am finding this game to be enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed a Pokemon game in the past.
