We have fun and are entertained because physical, real-world experiences can evoke pleasant feelings and emotions about ourselves, and Pokémon Snap serves as a reminder that videogames aren't necessarily fun onto themselves, but fun because they virtually simulate some of those real-world experiences. So playing Pokémon Snap is good, but if it inspires you to take up photography, visit a zoo, or go on a real wild safari (not that phony Disney stuff), the experience would be far richer.

With countless ways to get different shots of each monster, no two people will have the same pictures. This gives depth to a seemingly shallow game. Its graphics also capture the cute nuances of Pokemon.

Pokemon Snap is a rare treat, a truly inventive game that is fun for both kids and parents alike. If you're a fan of the whole series, Snap is a must have. If you're a novice, you'll find no better introduction to the Pokemon phenomena than Pokemon Snap.

Yet if you're willing to look past the rather small number of courses (the bonus one really isn't anything of note), there is a substantial amount of replay value involved in trying to collect bizarre or unique pictures. In addition, the game offers a special point challenge after completing it once to further entice players to take another trip through the courses. Most, however, won't need the incentive.

Denkend aan al die Japanners met petjes op en grote camera's om hun nek, begrijp ik waarom Pokémon Snap het zo goed doet in Japan. Ik heb echter diep respekt voor de manier waarop ze ook Dre en mij zo gek hebben kunnen krijgen dat we drie dagen lang virtuele zakmonsters hebben gefotografeerd. Grote Klasse!

Pokémon Snap's a fun game and a relaxing break from the other Pokémon titles. It's got one enormous flaw, though - it's super short. If you don't fool around, it's quite easy to photograph every type of Pokémon within an hour! Another annoying thing is that only one file can be kept at a time. If you want to start over, you have to erase your previous game. Still, though – it’s fun while it lasts and a nice break from the norm. Just don't expect something deep and involving!

Well, if you like Pokemon then you will most likely love this game. It's a great game, but keep in mind that the average gamer could complete it in about 3 days. The Pokemon phenomenon only gets better with Pokemon Snap. Join the craze!

Es ist wirklich etwas schade, dass nur knapp 60 von den (damals) insgesamt 151 bekannten Pokemon im Spiel enthalten sind, denn da wäre durchaus etwas mehr Inhalt dringewesen. Man muss schon Gefallen am Fotografieren haben und auch den Taschenmonstern nicht gerade abgeneigt sein. Während das Spiel eingefleischte Pokemonfans also mit Sicherheit sofort in seinen Bann ziehen wird, sollte auch die übrige Spielergemeinde dem exotischen Spielprinzip eine Chance geben und darf einen Blick riskieren.

Pokemon Snap's arrival on the Virtual Console comes with both positive and negative considerations. On the plus side, the added Wii functionality and ability to share your photos with friends is definitely notable and one of the most interesting and encouraging features we've seen added to a classic game release, well, since the VC first launched last year. But on the negative end, Snap is a game that's certainly showing its age now more than ever before – its franchise has gone on and grown through the past decade, and it's still crippled by only featuring a small subset of the very first generation of Pocket Monsters. What the Snap concept really needs isn't a VC re-release with a bit of added-in photo sharing – it needs a sequel.

Och trots att jag är ganska säker på att de lite yngre spelarna kommer att jubla när de ser de förskönade varianterna av sina favoritmonster tror jag att Nintendo nu även kan lyckas tilltala en äldre publik. Pokémon Snap handlar nämligen minst lika mycket om estetik som maniskt samlande. Om man sedan orkar lägga ner så mycket tid som krävs för att sätta ihop ett riktigt snyggt fotoalbum är främst en fråga om inställning.

Les fans des Pokemon ne manqueront pas de se ruer sur ce jeu qui, après tout, leur est destiné. On ne peut que louer le travail de Nintendo pour avoir su sortir des versions rouges, bleues et jaunes en proposant un principe de jeu complètement original et qui s'adapte bien à l'univers étrange des Pokemon. Mais la pauvre durée de vie du soft ne le destinera qu'aux plus passionnés des Pocket Monsters.

This game is guaranteed to give you hours and hours of fun. Trying to get that perfect shot with a great pose by the Pokémon. And trying to see all of the different ways you can affect the Pokémon with items. Of course, once you see all of these things, they will quickly grow old. And don't forget that with the right accessories, you can even print your photos, if I remember correctly. Just don't ask me what you need to do it, 'cause I don't know. It should be enough for you people just to see your pictures on the television.

Pokémon Snap, para bien y para mal, es un juego único.

Biorąc do ręki Pokemon Snap spodziewać by się można niesamowitego gniota, gdzie na siłę zostały wetknięte Pokemony dla zwiększenia sprzedaży. Jednak nic bardziej mylnego. Dostajemy całkiem przyzwoity tytuł, który może nie powala na kolana i zajmie nam mniej czasu od Contry, ale daje tą przyjemność jaką powinna dawać gra. Niezbyt wysoki poziom trudności, dużo kolorów i proste sterowanie pozwala zagrać w tą grę również najmłodszym do których bez wątpienia była pierwotnie kierowana. Zdecydowanie brakuje tu przemocy czy choćby niewinnego wypalania znaków na zadach pokemonów, ale jak się nie ma co się lubi... Nie oszukujmy się kto nie lubi robić zdjęć? Równie dobrze mogłyby to być normalne zwierzęta, a my w roli uczestnika safari.

Sympa et mignon, Pokémon Snap est un jeu sans prétention qui se laissera jouer par une après-midi de pluie.

Pokémon Snap est un parfait produit Pokémon qui ravira tous les pokémaniaques entre 7 et 12 ans. A la fois simple à prendre en main, pacifique, gratifiant (les enfants adorent leurs albums), le principe du jeu n'est pas aussi simpliste qu'on pourrait le croire, grâce aux surprises et événements à déclencher qui ne manqueront pas de ravir les joueurs, du moins pendant les quelques premières heures de jeu. Au-delà, seuls ceux qui désirent améliorer leur album-photo virtuel persévèreront.
