5.0 out of 5 stars The next step for Pokemon Rangers 25 Nov 2008
By 1234JMT
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My 7 yr old is a big fan of both Pokemon Pearl and Diamond games as well as the previous Ranger Games. I admit to enjoying them too!
This is definitely an improvement on the previous Ranger games - bigger, better, wider range of Pokemon all means more play time and plenty to occupy any pokemon loving gamers.
Some will say that this game is nothing new and just a rehash of previous Ranger games. While they have a point - it has the same game play style and same aims, there is plenty of reasons to purchase this game if you already own the previous ranger ones. The new arenas, wider range of pokemons not previously seen in the Ranger games (nice to see some of my personal favourites from Pearl make a reappearance), and plenty of different skills to use, make it a more interesting and varied game. It has a similar level of difficulty as the previous Ranger games and is suitable for age 5/6 yrs upwards. It is certainly keeping my 7 yr old occupied! She has played it more than any of the previous ranger games. In the past she has always enjoyed the ranger games but insisted that Pearl and Diamond are her top games. This is sharing the top spot right now - high praise indeed from my fussy daughter!
You do not need to have played the previous games to enjoy this alone and equally, it is ok if you have played the others - both new and old pokemon fans should find plenty to keep them happy in this addition to the Pokemon family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just too good 29 Dec 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just finished this game about a minute ago. And my goodness was it fantastic! Gameplay is greatly improved. The main aspect that was improved is the capture method. Although pretty much the same as the old game, to capture a pokemon you don't have to continuely loop it, you can take a break from looping. The 'friendship feelings' will stay with the pokemon for a while, allowing you a short break while the pokemon attacks. This meant that really, poke assists were a bit useless, but that was fine by me.
The addition of being able to swim under water, ride on floatzel, mantine, empoleon, torkoal etc was also pretty cool. I mean, there is nothing more awesome the surfing on lava!
You can catch Staraptor and fly on them, or ride doduo to get around a bit faster. There is a better variety of pokemon this time too. The only problem was the lack of save points. Luckily my styler only broke twice in the game, but at certain points, I could imagine how awful it would be for it to break, when you hadn't been to a save point in over 30 minutes.

Get this game before the end of February '09 to download the special missions from Ranger Net!

I couldn't put this game down, my poor DS is worn out. I think it deserves a rest now, but only once I have completed the extra missions!

If you are a pokemon fan or not, get this game.

An additional note, don't get put off by the first hour or two of this game. It was very slow to begin with, but persevere, because it just keeps getting better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Pokemon Ranger + 21 May 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, exactly as the title suggests, it's pretty similar to the last Ranger game but it has a few more perks. The quests available are really good side tracks when you don't want to do mission after mission (and are a great way to buil up your styler's power as each quest clear boosts your defences), you end up with a farm of partner pokemon you can swap about with which is handy when going to different locations, the story line is more proggressive than previous and you can use more than one loop-chain to catch pokemon which is REALLY handy considering I spent a good 15 mins trying to catch the previous game's steelix :S.

The game play is a tad slow to start but it's a great way to get back into the hang of things or learn the tricks of the trade if you havn't played the last one. The variability of Pokemon is much greater and your captures are graded (C,B,A,S) since you can use more than one loop set now.

Even once the game is complete you have heaps more missions and areas available to you, not to mention that 'Boss' Pokemon are scattered around previous locations from earlier missions.

The one thing that does get annoying is the Move Assists such as Drifloon's airlift, in some places you ahve to use a multitude of Pokemoves to cover a very small distance which rapidly looses appeal after the second visit or so.

Over all though, it's a definite buy wether you've played the last one before. Just be ready to do the first aspect (1 1/2 to 2 hours)of it in a oner so you can get onto the better stuff sooner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game 18 Sep 2011
By Jerry
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
So I bought this game a while ago. But it came in one day which surprised me because most things come late when I order them. Anyway the game is good. You play as a Pokemon ranger who is just an early teenager. A ranger captures pokemon by drawing circles round the pokemon to befriend them. So in the game you finish ranger school and become a pokemon ranger. You get to pick a starter pokemon which are Starly, Pachirisu and Munchlax. The whole game is good it is repetitive but it's one of those games that are never the same. Because every capture is really enjoyable.
