There is also the opportunity to take part in challenging Skill Games with Pokémon. Depending which Pokémon you approach in the PokéPark may determine your skill level as different Pokémon will prefer one skill game to another.

Never heard of an release date that was set so close by.
This one looks real cool. And Corn Houndooms? Why does this site have an issue with turning me into food?

I would only want a console pokemon game if they allowed me to go to all 4 (at the moment) generation's worlds, as well as making a new gen please.

I actually liked the 'Cube adventures, especially XD. I don't see why people hate them so much...

But I'm giving this one a miss, looks way too childish for my liking.



Aviator said:

@SoulSilver As did I, but the battles took way to long compared to the handhelds, and it would have been fine if it had been a game like the Stadiums, but they just had to shorten the battles and I would have loved it soooooo much. I only like it.

This isn't the same for Australia is it?

@consolepoke-conversation: Yeah, I recently played through the XD. It took me 30hrs and at least 20 of them was spent tapping A to skim the battles, it was so boring it was exhausting.
I just don't realize why they couldn't make a decent pokémon game on a home console after stadiums... I mean the colosseum and xd kind of pass as games, but PBR?? that's garbage. Well, pokémon snap wasn't all bad either. But there's so much more that could be made. I've kind of given up the hope, and this Park thing doesn't look like it's going to turn the lameness around.
(but I can totally see myself painstakingly playing through the pokepark wishing to find something to make my poke-veins pulse...)

I actually think PokéPark looks kinda good, of course I dont expect Deus Ex type greatness...



Klapaucius said:

Looks good to me I'll probably pick it up in Japan if I get a chance to play it.

I also enjoyed Collosseum, but never tried XD.

@jkgatling ...Well, no, they're completely different genres of game. Not even comparable.




The intial reviews/previews using the Japanese version that is already out suggest its a mid 6/10 at best. Seems to be aimed at a very young audience. I'll wait for the reviews of the EU version, but I also have to consider all the other games I want ahead of it. My lad is a big Pokemon DS series fan and is keen on this, but...

This game looks like it takes place in the same park as Psychonauts

Will almost certainly have to get it for the boys who havw put in many hours with Pokemon Rumble.
