- Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness
After playing Pokemon Colosseum I was very eager to go and play Gale of Darkness just to see how much it was different from the first game, even though it had the basic set up as the first one with the Shadow Pokemon is was also different in many ways which was something I was glad to see, which right away caught my attention.
I give the graphics a good score just like Pokemon Colosseum the graphics were great, I love the fact they have it that you can always see the attacks that the Pokemon use cause that gives some real life feeling to the game instead of taking that out. The graphics where clear and smooth easy to follow it was just a great in general.
Sound was just as great as graphics, the way that it matched the moods of the story when a certain part was coming and the sound was also good during the battles along with the sound effects of the attacks that were fired. The sound was very clear and it also gave some feeling in the game especially when it became dramatic.
Giving more Shadow Pokemon in this game, than it Pokemon Colosseum was also I believe a good idea cause it extend the gameplay in the game a little longer. It also made the game more interesting when they changed some of the Shadow Pokemon around instead of keeping the same ones. They also choose other locations only keep some the same which I also believe was good.
Lastability I would have to say would be great cause even I have played this game many times because each time I always loved to play the storyline and change my strategies each time. I think that you could play this game over and over again and it wouldn't get old when you always try something new with it.
Overall I will give it a 9 because personally I loved to play it, I loved the storyline and the choice of shadow Pokemon that were used in it. I would play it over again over again whenever I could. And from here along with the game being good, there is also always room for improvements.
