Summary

Takes the original and improves it tenfold!

The Good

Well what can I say? I takes the original and manages to capture the magic of it while making it feel like a whole new game. Everything from beating your rival in that first battle, to getting that final legendary, is a wonderful trip through memory lane, and the ultimate Pokemon experience. Plus, the free wireless adapter is awesome too!

The Bad

Well, with Pokemon there is the annoyance of having to wander around the grass, leveling up your pokemon before every important battle. Also, going through those caves (victory road took me a month) is gruelling and a bore.

The Bottom Line

In short, this is a brilliant pokemon experience with little to fault. However, I don't think people who don't like RPGs will be convinced by this
