4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun !, 13 July 2000
This review is from: Pokemon - Red Version (Game Boy) (Game Cartridge)
I was nothing if not sceptical when I picked up a copy of Pokemon Red. I knew it was a craze amongst the under 12's (being in my 30's I consider myself to be an honorary member of that particular club) and I know Nintendo were milking it for all it was worth, so would it be just another ten minute wonder?
I'm happy to say that after more sets of batteries than I care to mention I'm still playing Pokemon Red, which managed to completly exceed my expectations in every way. This is actually a very good Game Boy RPG with an awful lot going for it. OK so it's not exactly the Legend of Zelda, but it's pretty impressive giving loads of gaming opportunity as you capture and train handfuls of pocket monsters then pit them against other trainers to improve the quality of your charges.
Surprisingly, it requires quite alot of strategy to get the balance of your Pokemon right - you can only hold six at a time, and deploying them against the opposition in the right order can be a vital opener if you're to achieve victory. There's a massive amount of play in this cartridge, which is battery-backed to allow games to be saved, with the trail to capture all of the games 130+ monsters taking a not inconsiderable amount of time.
All-in-all, top entertainment !
