Pokemon HeartGold Version (DS)

 

It's absurd how many variations of the Pokemon role-playing games have been released since the series first hit the US in 1998. Most entries are launched in pairs with only minor differences between the two--typically in the form of unique Pokemon that...

Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver Review

 

The popular and critically acclaimed Pokemon Gold and Silver have been re-released by Nintendo. Is this simply a way to make a quick buck or is it worth the purchase for fans of the series?

Heart Gold and Soul Silver offer a solid, two pronged attack on the Pokemon fanbase. It is a fantastic remake of a gaming classic, while offering plenty of new features and improvements to make it stand out as it's own game, especially for those who...

Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver - Nintendo DS Review

 

Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver don't do much to add to the already-popular Pokemon format, but they do deliver a genuine, enertaining, deeply enthralling experience. Fans of the series won't see too much that is new here, but they will get yet another...

A funky little pocket peripheral adds a fun new twist to a dated formula.

Pokewalker is an ingenious peripheral ; A nice visual update to the original ; Still addictive after a decade

Life can really burn you up, If you're a Poké-maniac!

Overhauled to near-perfection; Graphically gorgeous; Pokéwalker is actually worthwhile!; Online play is stable and available

Online mini-games available but lackluster; Battles could use an overhaul

Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver

 

Despite being well over the age of the target demographic of the Pokémon games, I still unabashedly glean an enjoyment from the games that borders on unhealthy – some around me have already determined my obsession with each game thus. But what do they...

It's amazing that I am able to find more amusement in handheld Pokémon games than many full fledged console RPGs. Whether that is telling of console RPGs or the Pokémon games is something I leave up to the reader, but I ended up going back to Pokémon...

I can't quit you.

Addictive, timeless "gotta catch 'em all" gameplay ; Pokéwalker is a fun addition ; Excellent interface ; Everything the originals had and then some

Gameplay additions more neat than necessary ; HMs still suck

Poison got nerfed pretty bad, and never really recovered. It used to be super effective against Bug types, but from Gold/Silver on that was removed. Then they added Steel which was immune to Poison and it reduced an already lackluster attack type to...

Nintendo revives two favorites with improved graphics and a cool accessory.

Bottom line, Pokemon fans will pick up these games no matter what we say. Thankfully, there's a reason to snag them. Even though most of the presentation and general gameplay hasn't changed much from previous Pokemon adventures, both HeartGold and...

Pokemon HeartGold Nintendo DS Review

 

Now, if you've played these Pokemon games before (the original Gold and Silver titles that these two are based on), then you'll have no problem getting into the turn-based combat, choosing which attack is best suited for the Pokemon you're fighting...

Connects to other Pokemon games, graphics were upgraded from the original Gold/Silver, Wi-Fi lets you battle and trade online, the Pokewalker is a helpful device to level up Pokemon on-the-go

Audio needs upgrading, the battle system hasn't changed much, you still need Friend Codes to battle online

After putting up with the below average Pokemon Dungeon and Explorers games, we needed the series to get back to doing what it does best: letting two breeds of monsters smack the crap out of each other. Fortunately, Pokemon SoulSilver and HeartGold...
