I remember years ago playing the original Pokémon Red & never being able to put it down. I was playing it every moment I had the chance to. After completing, I bought Pokémon Silver but never really got anywhere with it because of the new areas & new Pokémon, it just wasn't as fun to play as the original was. Then I heard LeafGreen/FireRed was being released...I bought LG & my little brother bought FR & they haven't really been put down since! There is a great deal of nostalgia involved with these little gems, when all the old music and memories of the towns come flooding back.
The whole layout is the same, but the graphics have been improved no end - they're up to GBA standard now. The animations are similar, but it doesn't ruin the gameplay. You fact you can choose to play a boy or a girl is a nice little touch. The game size has doubled, there are now many more islands to explore after you complete the Kanto islands.
As a 16 year old girl, Pokémon has long fizzled out - the fad stopped about four years ago. But this game has bought all my memories back of playing the fantastic Red/Blue games & is slowly making me a fan again! I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed any of the previous games. If you've never played Pokémon, now is the best time to start.

Deserving of five stars? Yes. This game is a remake of Blue and Red(Green and Red in Japan). And have better graphics, animation, characters and just all out quality. wireless batling is fantastic. Like Pokemon? Buy this then, or should you be new discover the brilliance that inspired nearly all modern cartons and monster based games, at the age of 17 this game still inspires all the old emotion. Thanks Nintendo, once again. YOU RULE. If you like pokemon, buy it, if not then don't bother.

I first got a Pokemon game, with a Gameboy Colour when i was around 8/9 as a christmas present from my uncle. I remember playing Pokemon Blue all day, Boxing Day and i was thrilled to bits.

God only knows how many years on and here i am playing Pokemon Fire Red, and the memories are flooding back. If you have played the originals this will be very familiar to you, its the same story with the same Pokemon, just with animations and graphics similar to Pokemon Ruby, but don't let that put you off...

If you played the originals when i did, then this will seem like new to you, the music and Pokemon will make you think back. Yes, i did play the originals but i still find this quite challenging and very compelling and addictive. To be honest, i find myself playing this more than the latest Pokemon versions, diamond and pearl.

If your a Pokemon beginner or a seasoned veteran I'd still highly recommend this very well re-make of a instant phenomenon. There is so much to do on so many levels its accessible by all ages, whether your 8 or 38!!

Pokemon Leaf Green is a re-make of the original Pokemon game Pokemon Blue, but is it better than the older one? The answer is yes! Pokemon Leaf Green has better graphics, more modern Pokemon moves and better possibilities such as the mutiplayer room where you can trade Pokemon and battle out with your friends. Not to mention the free wireless adaptor that you get with the game. So your definitely getting your money's worth. Basically, you are a person (what they call a Pokemon Trainer) in the Pokemon World, formally known as Johto, and you are given a free Pokemon from your neighbour, Professor Oak. You have a choice between Charmander (fire), Squirtle (water) and Bulbasaur (leaf). Whichever one you pick, your rival, who is Oak's grandson picks the one most harmful to your Pokemon. So if you pick Charmander, he picks Squirtle because you are fire and he is water. The game unfolds and you find yourself in an amazing and fun adventure. This is a must have for any gamer. Get it (preferably from Amazon because it's cheaper than anywhere else)!

I got this game a couple of months ago off ebay and knew it was a remake of pokemon blue. Why was it called Leaf green and not Water Blue you may ask? This is because the Japanese title of pokemon blue was pokemon green. Now you may say "I already have pokemon blue/red/yellow why would I want a remake?" My answer would be because even though blue/red/yellow was out-of-this-world, this game is 10 times better. This games graphics are way better than the originals and there is even more to do. After you do Blaines gym you are asked if you would like to visit the mystery islands where Johto pokemon may appear...
This game can link up to pokemon Colluseum and pokemon Ruby/Sapphire.The link play is excellent and so you don't have to go to the shops to get a tangeld up link cable(which can be used) you get a wireless adaptor which uses infrared to link up. This is a must have game for everyone with a Gameboy advanced/SP.

Pokemon LeafGreen is the best Pokemon game ever as everything is amazing! I like the new battle graphics and that it shows you a picture of your items and describes them are the best parts. being able to catch all 386 (I've only caught 'new' ones on the seven islands as i can't get the second item that Celio wants - help). It seemed to be easier to catch Articuno and to get through Victory Road (I could'nt do it on Blue) which is better.
I must give it 5 stars!

First off, the game is great. It's got a lot more to it than just Pokemon Blue. More pokemon, new adventures, and great graphics and sound.
But one of the main reasons I bought this game was the Wireless Adapter. Someone said it was infrared- it's actually using radio waves, so you don't have to be directly facing each other. You can sit in the front seat of a car and play against someone in the back seat of the car without turning around and having to point your GameBoys at each other. This isn't like on the GameBoy Color where you had to lie them both on the table and not bump them in fear of disrupting the connection, you can actually use the adapter on the move! There's even a indicator to tell you how your reception is.
So, the game is great, but the wireless adapter makes it 10x more worthwhile to buy .

it has very good graphics. If you like long games this is the game for you, because it's nearly impossible to get through it in one day. Over 200 new pokemon to capture, two cities and lots more. When you've won all the medals you have to catch all the pokemons and do all the tasks. This is a class game. deffinately 5 stars.

Fire red is a remake of the original game boy classic pokemon red with ruby and sapphires third generation game engine. But to call it JUST a remake is a serious understatement. this game is fun, addictive and strangely heart warming as anyone who played the original games will remember going through the same story line, its also makes feel as though you were that little kid gazing at the tiny gameboy screen in your own little world.... well that's how i felt. Sure it's the exact same game but with some more pokemon to catch, better graphics and a couple of new islands but thats not the point, i bought it for the memory and at £17 or so its not bad.
