Um es kurz zu machen: Ich bin sehr zufrieden. Anfangs war ich ein bisschen besorgt, dass PokéPark zu einem simplen Ablenkungsmanöver für die Poké-Fans, die sehnsüchtig auf Schwarz & Weiß warten, werden würde – aber zum Glück hat sich diese Befürchtung nicht bewahrheitet. Stundenlang war ich unterwegs, um mich auch noch mit dem letzten Monsterchen anzufreunden. Auch wenn der Umfang noch ein bisschen größer sein könnte, ist PokéPark definitiv ein wahres Vergnügen für alle Poké-Fans!

So despite its (extremely) simplistic design, PokePark Wii is technically proficient and amazingly fun for a Pokemaniac like myself. Yes, I said, "All right!" out loud when I found out that I was going to be freeing Mamoswine from his frozen tomb. Half the fun of this game is seeing your favorite Pokemon in more or less their natural habitats in glorious, eye-popping 3D. I heartily recommend it for everyone who loves Pocket Monsters.

Wer die Pokemon mag und sich auf das Abenteuer einlässt, wird mit „PokePark: Pikachu´s großes Abenteuer“ auf jeden Fall seine Freude haben. Viele Figuren, tolle Aufgaben und sehr gute Minispiele laden auch ältere Spieler zum lustigen Pikachu-Rennen ein. Natürlich ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht zu hoch bemessen, doch gerade das macht das Spielchen für junge Gamer empfehlenswert. Generell können wir den Poképark jedem Fan empfehlen, wer mit Pikachu und Co. nichts anfangen kann, wird nicht wirklich glücklich. Spaß macht es allemal, denn abseits von der Hauptserie ist „PokéPark: Pikachu´s großes Abenteuer“ das gelungenste Spiel der Serie.

There seem to be some missed opportunities with PokePark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure (why is there no multiplayer option?), but that doesn’t stop it from being a solid game for children and the young at heart. With fun motion-control based mini-games, up to 193 Pokemon to befriend, lots of areas to explore and leveling up to do, Pikachu’s Adventure offers a lot of content. Sure, there are some slow and frustrating times peppered throughout the PokePark, but overall it’s an adorable and satisfying family-friendly experience.

All in all, PokéPark is a solid title that holds up for a range of gamers. With its well-rounded story, variety of things to do, and hidden features, many gamers will find PokéPark to be a good place to spend some time. How do I love thee, PokéPark? Let me count the ways...

Worth Playing
PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure certainly isn't a perfect title on the Wii, but I think it's worth checking out for younger Pokémon fans. There's not a lot to hold the attention of the 20-plus crowd, but kids who are just getting introduced to the world and characters will probably have a fair amount of fun with this one. Non-gaming parents can also sit down and enjoy this title with their kids without feeling too lost about how the game controls or works. PokéPark Wii is definitely not for everyone, but it's certainly worth a shot.

Even though PokePark is primarily aimed at kids, Poke-fans will find a lot to like in this action adventure title. It may not be the 3D Pokemon game fans have been crying for ever since the N64 era, but its own take on the "gotta friend 'em all" formula can be just as addicting as catching them.

Clairement destiné à un très jeune public, Poképark Wii est un voyage attendrissant dans l'univers des Pokémon. Manquant certes de profondeur et de challenge, l'aventure n'est pas pour autant dénuée de charme ni d'intérêt. Pour le coup, on regretterait presque d'avoir quitté les bancs de l'école...

Obviously intended for young gamers, and that's exactly who'll get the most out of this. Everyone else will get bored quickly.

Despite the bland attractions and repetition of the skill games, exploring the PokePark is still somehow fun and engaging if you're a Pokemon fan, in part because this is easily the prettiest Pokemon game to date. The Pokemon themselves also have strong and often funny personalities, which is a side we rarely get to see in the Pokemon series despite the games revolving around the titular beasts. We love the little touches too, like the absolutely adorable Pikachu animations that play during loading screens – after you see Pikachu's somersaults and pop and lock routine you'll actually wish the game had more load times. So while the spectacle of the park exceeds the actual rides, PokePark Wii is still worth checking out if you're a fan of the actual Pokemon themselves and just want a relaxing Pokemon-themed diversion.

PokePark Wii: Pikachu's Adventureseems to be another disappointing entry in the Pokémon franchise on the Wii. From the lackluster Pokémon Battle Revolution to the too-think Pokémon Ranch, it seems the Wii can't quite decide what it wants to do with the Pokémon franchise. I was really ready to get behind PokePark, as its premise (platforming plus minigames) sounded like it could have been a lot of fun. However, the monotony of the "friend"-ing exercises and the lack of multiplayer make this game feel like more of a chore than it should be. It has some undeniable charm (especially in the visuals department) but after the initial cuteness factor wears off, you're left with a game that is fun in places but doesn't offer that much beyond tired single-player mini-games and a friend roster to fill. This game is really only good for the youngest of Pokémon fans, and even then, kids might find themselves bored and/or frustrated with this title.

For what it is, PokéPark Wii is an endearing little game that is sure to incite nostalgia in longtime fans of the series. The title succeeds most as an introductory adventure for children, but those who enjoyed any of the early Pokémon spin-offs on Nintendo 64 are likely to enjoy this one as well. It may not be a challenging or lengthy quest, but it is very much a pleasant one, and at the end of the day that is really enough to recommend the game to those curious about it.

There isn’t a huge amount to keep you coming back, so this game is going to be most popular among kids who go straight for the box, collectors who have to have everything with Pikachu’s face on it, and video game journalists who give it 5.8 out of 10 and almost feel bad about it.

This Pokemon-themed minigame collection misses the point for anyone other than very young Pikachu fans.

Each cutesy character is matched by a plodding task. For every smiley, pug-nosed Pokémon there are five mini-games asking you to beat them in a ten-second long race. For each happy-looking berry you collect out of a crate you are told to click on and say hello to every Pokémon within the district. The mini-games are so lacking in variety that between ten different Pokémon you'll have played the same game against them four times. It's the kind of repetitive process that is the hallmark of any standard children's game, yet the bane of every other genre. Regardless of whether or not this is aimed at the under-10 market, the game still fails to be anything but a Pokémon walkabout built around menial tasks.

PokePark Wii: La grade avventura di Pikachu, sin dalle premesse è una produzione strettamente dedicata ai giocatori più piccoli, amanti dei mostri Nintendo. Pur tenendo in mente questo, il titolo non riesce comunque ad essere minimamente interessante. Dopo i primi momenti, l'esperienza ludica diventa estremamente monotona, povera di qualsiasi guizzo d'inventiva, lasciando che gli eventi percorrano sempre le stesse, noiose routine. L'esplorazione del parco risulta essere uno dei momenti più lenti del gioco, e neanche i minigiochi proposti, che dovrebbero offrire una variante al gameplay, convincono a pieno. Fin troppo semplificati, i Supergiochi non fanno altro che essere un altro elemento facilmente dimenticabile all'interno di questo prodotto.

Poképark Wii Pikachu’s Adventure stelt behoorlijk teleur. In plaats van een vrolijk avontuur krijg je een opeenvolging van vervelende klusjes voor je kiezen. Zelfs de kenmerkende verslavende werking van Pokémon verzamelen wordt danig op de proef gesteld door de beroerde besturing en gebrek aan variatie. De verschillende leuke attracties die vrijgespeeld worden maakt het geheel nog wat dragelijk, maar helaas niet meer dan dat.

Whatever the expectations of this game are in your neck of the woods, we have a feeling that they're way above the satisfaction that it will offer you. Buy it if you are thinking of starting your own Pokémon museum, or if you have youngsters at home who want wholesome yet unsurprising ways to kill thirteen or so hours. It's a shame that a respectable franchise should have something so mediocre tarnish its name, but hopefully this will be a lesson for Creatures Inc. to take on board and realise that if it's going to produce a spin-off it should make sure that it's something they themselves would play.

Des Pokémon, puis le vide. Poképark Wii : La grande aventure de Pikachu espère cacher son manque de profondeur derrière les bouilles réjouies de deux centaines de Pokémon en manque de divertissement. Est-ce un bon party game ? Non : les quelques mini-jeux proposés n'ont rien de bien extraordinaire. Est-ce un bon jeu d'aventure ? Non : on lit des dialogues peu intéressants, on se promène dans des décors trop vides et pas très jolis, et on refait souvent les mêmes épreuves. Cerise sur ce gâteau empoisonné : pour ceux qui ne le savaient pas, Pikachu est aussi maniable qu'un transpalette rouillé. Germignon, Salamèche et Tiplouf ont beau être super sympa, ils se moquent quand même un peu de nous avec ce Poképark miteux.
