Telling you, the reader, over and over again that the game is great gives us a serious case of broken record-itis, and it's a lot easier to spotlight the game's minor problems than it is to try and reinvent the wheel. Pokemon RPGs are great games. I know it, Wendi knows it and we must assume that you know it, too. Heart Gold and Soul Silver are the best and most complete Pokemon games in the series, and no DS owner should be without at least one of them. It's as simple as that. If you need proof of Pokemon's wide ranging appeal and place at the top of the best DS games list, keep your eyes open next time you're in a heavily populated area. Wendi and I found, as you will, that the little Pokewalkers are clipped to folks of all shapes, sizes and ages. Let yourself get the itch, and you'll be constantly amazed as the game's hour count ticks higher and higher with no end in sight.
