Judging by the look of the game, I initially thought of how good the game was. I was by far, not dissapointed. This game is a very great game and can really have you hooked, if you still like to play these kind of games, which will keep you at your knees to continue playing. If you've played Pokemon Colloseum before, you have a general idea of what the game will be like. It's just about the same as Colloseum, except for the fact that you get more Shadow Pokemon, and there is a lot more to explore, and new Shadow Pokemon, and the best part, snagging the Ultimate Shadow Pokemon, XD001.
The graphics are similar to the ones you use in Pokemon Colloseum, however, with more Pokemon to see and explore, the graphics are different drasticly, and the beautiful landscapes are astounding. If you like the look of this game, your going to like the graphics. A lot of things can keep you hooked on this game. The graphics are some of the top things that I would see, reccomending the battle graphics look a lot better then they do in some of the Handheld games, and definitly better then how they look from Colloseum.
The sound is pretty much the same as in every Pokemon game. I highly like the sound and think it's finally loud enough. You can blast it and not really care much. If you enjoy good sound quality, then you're going to have a big enjoyable time with the sound. The battle music is excellent, and just all around, boss battles are pretty good, Sim Battles have a different music, which is really good and sounds pretty nice as well.
There is a lot you can do in this game, and I mean A LOT to do. You need to snag 83 Shadow Pokemon, and there's still the fact of PokeSpots! You can finally catch wild Pokemon on a Platform Pokemon game! This is something a lot of people have been anticipating and will definitly be viewed by you big fans. Now you can look at all the missions you need to do. You get to run around like a maniac helping these people, protecting people, or just rescuing someone. The places that were in Pokemon Colloseum make a return, with more to do, keeping you hooked on this part of the game, with love. Then you have to beat all the Colloseums that were entered in the game, even more things to do now, and the big thing that I enjoyed the most, Orre Colloseum. The best Colloseum is right there. This Colloseum is just like Emerald's Battle Frontier. It's going to test your limits and your Pokemon knowledge to beat here. Good luck in playing this part of the game. Way to go on Nintendo's part for doing such an excellent job sticking all of these missions down in the game, and the challenge of putting Orre Colloseum, get out there and face your real tests!
You will definitly be playing this game for a really long time. It's really jam-packed with a lot of missions, meaning that you're going to be doing a lot and spending a heck load of time doing things and running around, having a big lastability. However, like many Pokemon games, you are most likely going to want to restart the game to get some things you missed, or to just pick up more fun of the game. Peresonally, I don't relaly mind this, because it does help. But the trading part of the game will help you want to beat Orre Colloseum, which means your going to be playing a lot more, making me happy .
This game is definitly one of the top games to be sold. It sold very high when it came out, many fans loved it and you will be having a lot of things to do, giving the game a lot of enjoyment to it, and the enjoyment of you, the player, playing the game! You're going to be doing a lot, training your hard-earned Pokemon, and of course, purifying those 83 Shadow Pokemon, your challenge being Shadow Lugia, XD001. Having fun in this game is what you should really think about. This game has a solid 10/10. Hail Nintendo for the game!
