Pokémon SoulSilver (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 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 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...

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 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.

Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver - Nintendo Wants Your Money NOW!


I am a long-time Pokemon fan......and have been ever since the series was brought over to America in the late 90's. While Pokemon plays like a typical RPG, the sheer size of its playable roster (officially 493 monsters, although ...

The games make better use of the DS's touch-screen, especially for the Pokeathlon mini-games

The games are completely unnecessary, weighing down the originals with a lot of excess
