Pokemonheartgold Reviewed For The Nintendo Ds

You take what was originally a great game, add the new features found in the more modern Pokemon Pearl and Pokemon Platinum, add them together and you end up with PokemonHeartGold. Whether you’re a fan of the original Pokemon games for the Gameboy and Gameboy Advance, or prefer the newer ones that have been realized on the Nintendo DS, you will enjoy this remake. In Pokemonheartgold you can use random choice generator to improve your gameplay. It is really easy to use as well. You can even learn about different pokemons and their attack and defense powers.

One of the best new features of this game is the Pokewalker that comes bundled with it, this is a nice little Pokeball shaped gadget that acts smilar to a pedometer. You send a Pokemon to it wirelessly from the DS, and then it gains experience for each step you take in real life, and can level up as well as uncovering hidden items and battle others around you.

The game can be a little hard to finish as like the original Gold you have to defeat 8 gym leaders and the Elite 4, but after that you can visit the region from Pokemon Red and become champion there too, and then face off against Ash. After all of that there are still a little under 500 Pokemon to catch in total before you’ve got them all. On top of this (as if its not loads already) you have a wealth of special arenas you can fight in and then switch to wi-fi to attle your mates as well.

I read a lot of great previews before I managed to get my hands on a copy of this game and it really lived up to everything I had heard, If you’re like me and grew up with the original games it really is a total must buy although I must warn you that you may suddenly notice a lot of time has been eaten up playing it.

Good Points 

The very best bits from every Pokemon game since gold added to the original game, includes a Pokewalker, hours upon hours of game play.

Bad Points

It is the same old story and the game engine; as good as it is hasn’t really been updated.

Despite on the outset just looking like a re-release of an older game, this has so many added extras and updates from the more recent titles. Adding in the Pokewalker which is worth buying the game for anyway, this game is a must have.
