Pokemon SoulSilver Review

 

Enslaving magical creatures one step at a time.

Same deep gameplay as always, Pokewalker is a nice accessory, tons of things to do when not battling

You've already played this game, many, many times over, leveling up via Pokewalker has drawbacks

As Pokemon games go, it's definitely the most polished version yet and the new additions all add up to make the overall experience even more enjoyable. Unfortunately there is still a lot to the game that has been around for over ten years now and if...

Pokemon SoulSilver Version

 

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

Pokemon SoulSilver on Nintendo DS

 

In It for the Long Haul

So now the all-important question…should you buy this game? Well, it’s obviously a somewhat tough call. There are already a trio of quality Pokemon titles on the DS in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. Then again, SoulSilver and HeartGold hold plenty of...

Pokemon SoulSilver Review

 

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 SoulSilver 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...

Pokemon SoulSilver Version

 

Pokemon is back, and this time it's in the form of a remake of what many people consider to be the best installment in the core series, Pokemon Gold and Silver.

Huge, lengthy game; menu interface improvements; PokeWalker implementation

Wasting move slots on your Pokemon for those annoying HM moves

Pokemon SoulSilver - Review

 

If you've stumbled across this review for Nintendo's latest dual entry in the long-running and ever-addictive Pokemon series, Heart Gold/Soul Silver, consider yourself lucky. As a change of pace, I've decided to bring in a special consultant to make...

The overall score I felt was appropriate for the game was a 94/100, but coupled with Wendi's 96/100, we've settled on a 95/100.

It's the same old formula you've played before

Pokemon SoulSilver

 

With HeartGold and SoulSlver the Pokémon series has reached a point where it can't get any better. It's like a level 100 Pikachu; it's as good as it can possibly be.

PokéWalker is an inspired addition ; 493 of the blighters to catch ; WiFi features are as innovative as ever

The Pokémon formula is becoming worn out

The only thing preventing the game from reaching the lofty heights of double digits is familiarity; the game is distressingly similar to all those that have come before it. This isn't necessarily a bad thing depending on your perspective, as HeartGold...

Pokemon SoulSilver

 

Much like the first original Pokemon titles for Gameboy Advance were followed up by remakes of classics, so the same has happened with the DS. Pokemon SoulSilver (and HeartGold) gives players another chance (or in some cases, first chance) to explore...

GBC classics given a new lease of life ; Better use of touch-screen controls ; Plenty of hours of action ; Pokewalker can encourage kids to exercise

It's basically the same old game again ; Transferring to and from the Walker could be simpler ; About time they implemented touch screen movement

Quibbles aside, SoulSilver is a decent game (and, by default, so is HeartGold), but your need for it is really dependent on your level of interest (or perhaps lack of it). For the Pokefan who absolutely must have every title, it'll be a must-have, for...
