Sorry, no Pokémon Dash review yet.
All your perfect imperfections
Today marks the 15th anniversary of NBA Live 08 on the Wii. Quite why there wasn't a national holiday and organised street parades for this excellent game is beyond us. Except, of course, it isn't excellent at all. The game was, for all intents and purposes, objectively bad, and yet there is a very large part of this...
Race through 25 courses (all with different difficulty levels and Cups) using your stylus in order to keep Pikachu™ on a direct course to the finish line.
Race in single mode or play wirelessly with up to six friends (other players also must have a Pokémon Dash game card).
Use Pokémon Ruby, Pokémon Sapphire, Pokémon Emerald, Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen in order to create new courses (adding more than 380 courses to the game). Each new course takes on the shape of the imported Pokémon.
Game Storyline: A novelty racing/puzzle game that will be available for Nintendo DS. Players control Pikachu and race against other Pokémon. The objective is to clear all check points and aim toward the goal. In addition to running the courses, Pikachu can cross water terrain by riding on Lapras'™ back and can also fly using a hot-air balloon. Most of the control is based on using the unique touch screen of Nintendo DS, making this game unlike any previous Pokémon title.
Characters: More than 380 Pokémon. Plus, a first-time appearance of all-new Munchlax™ – the pre-evolution of Snorlax™.
How to progress through the game: Player starts with a tutorial mode making it easier to begin the game. Again, the objective is to clear all check points and aim toward the goal.
