@jump Yeah it is a bit ridiculous. I can understand them wanting to make things a bit puzzling - to add to the longevity of the game and to make certain moments truly special when you discover them. But some of the requirements are definitely excessive, and the game doesn't really do a good job of establishing the "rules" (for lack of a better word). For example, to my knowledge, at no point does it indicate that repeated use of the scanner or any other tool is necessary to trigger specific events.

I find anything involving the scanner to be particularly egregious. These never seem to be intuitive and it ends up just being trial and error of just spamming the scanner. And when you're constantly spamming different tools and something happens...you have no idea what it is that you did that actually caused a reaction in the Pokemon.

That would be my number one criticism of this game, actually. A lot of the interactions with Pokemon feel a lot less intuitive in this game than they did in the first game.

@timleon yeah that is nail on the head.

In the first game there was a logic that came from natural experimenting and curiosity. This feels like one of those rubbish point and click adventures that has such a weird random logic on how to complete the puzzle.

There’s one thing they can do to make up for this, a on rails shooter free dlc where the apples are replaced with grenades! ;p

I've got around 20ish hours out of this game and I've snapped all the pokes. So now I can resell Snap and pretty much get my money back on or I can keep it and try to complete the challenges which will pee me off and possibly tarnish my enjoyment I had with it but I would normally try to 100% a game like this as I like the secretes and discovery in it. Hmm...

@jump Maybe give it a break and see if you feel like coming back to it a few days later. I finished it about 10 days ago (still not got all the Pokes though) and felt a bit burnt out...but I still find it nice to come back for a few sessions at a time every few days.

@timleon I've actually been playing Snap inbetween DOOM already, it's been making an odd contrast of testosterone bumping killing and aggression to me going "Oooh, that Squirtle is doing something cute" lol.

Yeah, I'm gonna ease off for now and see how eager I am to get back to playing Snap before I decide to flog it or not.

Watched the credits roll this morning, and according to the play log I've spent at least 15 hours on it so far.

That's more time than I've spent on titles such as Onimusha, Devil May Cry, & Republic Commando, yet it doesn't feel as fulfilling as those titles. I'm NOT saying it's a worse game, just that story completion feels like scratching the surface rather than a satisfying endeavor in & of itself.

The only problem with this is that the meat of the game, these darn challenges, can be super obtuse & it's not fun replaying a course 3-4 times in a row and have nothing to show for it.

Would you suggest this game to a 6 year old?

@Scrubicius Yes!

Has anyone tried the free DLC yet? I think it's awesome! Being free content, I think it's very generous – the base game was already pretty meaty.

@Scrubicius Depends on the the 6yo. My Niece and Nephew are 8 and 5 respectively and their Mum said said they got bored with it pretty quickly despite being massive Pokemon fans, yet loved Gigantosaurus that they picked up in a sale around the same time - NLife reviewed that as 3/10.

@dmcc0
That’s a major issue with gaming sites. They don’t know or ignore the target audience.
My 5 year old as racked more hours in Paw Patrol then Animal Crossing.☺️

@Scrubicius Unfortunately that's largely true and that makes it difficult to buy for younger kids. I recall there was a review of a kids game on here not long ago that scored pretty high (8 maybe?) and the comments were full of "you gave this crap 8, but <my favourite game> only got 7 - I'm done with this site".

Plus, kids have no taste - my own kids used to play some god awful games when there were younger; some were licensed so it made sense that they would like a game that had a familiar character or something in it, but others I had no idea what the appeal was - often the games were just really bad in almost every way.

The appeal of bad games and shovelware is there for people that don't know any better.
They have no clue about gaming and what signs to look out for when searching for quality stuff. They can't measure the value. Buying books by the looks of its cover.

Kids would try anything. It's learning.
And if you don't have something to compare, you never know there's much better out there. You hold the crap tight to your heart and think you found the holy grail.

Oh yeah, New Pokémon Snap. I bought this game at launch, the first Pokémon game I bought in 9 years (last ones were PokéPark 1&2 on Wii in 2012). But I played other stuff and didn't have time to dive into it properly. Coming from the N64 prequel, I didn't expect the game to be so deep. The amount of side-missions you get was overwhelming at first but I put them aside for now and focus on the main story. It's such an incredible grower and I look forward to compete online with all of you.

OMG, this freakin' update...I love it...after messing with the new content for a bit, I decided to see if I can do a mission that I could never complete. ("Meganium's friend" or whatever) So glad I don't have to guess ten million times with what pic counts anymore. xD

Now if only I could increase that area's level...got like 15k points left, no idea what else to do here. >.>

I bought this game at launch and I just can't get into it. It's so disappointing because I loved the original and was excited to hear the news about a sequel being made.

My main complaint is everything being vague to the point of obscurity. Events and actions are seemingly triggered at random and its incredibly frustrating. For example, the log in the jungle has only fallen down once and I have no idea how I made it happen.

What should be enjoyable relaxing trips through levels ends up with me spamming every item on every Pokemon in the vain hope something will happen.

The tasks....I'm glad for the update that marks eligible photos but I can't be bothered trying to figure out the useless clues anymore. I have to use an online guide because I don't feel the game respects my time.

I'll 100% the game then trade it in
