Pokémon Diamond/Pearl

There's a review at Eurogamer:

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=76213

Before anyone scoffs (which they will) it's a cracking game. It's still an RPG like Warcrack or Guild Wars and involves levelling up, gaining skills, using the move and Pokémon types to ramp up effectiveness and, of course, there's the seemingly never-ending task of collecting of the Pokémon (not required but frustratingly fun.)

The mechanics and the methodology of the game is far more advanced than you'd ever think. You can even battle and trade online in this version! ^_^

If you have a DS, make this a "to buy".


#70 might be a Poké-LAN. (haha, if only I could rep myself for that.)

Heard good things about the latest Pokemon games, last one I actually bought was for an old Gameboy iirc, Pokemon Silver I think. Before that I had both Blue (Squirtle) and Red (Charmander) versions. It all seemed to go a bit crazy when Mew and Mewtoo came into it all after the movie.

With the DS sitting there gathering dust I may take the time out to invest some time in a new game. Its just so hard to justify when Final Fantasy 7 (and to a lesser extent Zelda 3) is sitting there needing to be finished on the PSP.

Brining my DS to the lan didn't even cross my mind, but its a defo now.

I'd better get levelling my pokemon.

Its a great game, a truely refined experience. Completely polished in my opinion.

I'll be getting this. Could import it but I think I'll just wait until June when the UK version is released.
