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.
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!!
OK, first of all, the first releases of FR/LG had Wireless Adapters packaged with them, so there was no need to buy a new one.
Story: One day you wake up to find out that your next-door neighbor, Professor Oak, wants to see you. You travel there but he is not there. Eventually, you decide to go into the "Tall grass," but the Prof. stops you and takes you back to his lab. He gives you a choice of three starter Pokemon; Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur,to accompany you on your journey to become the Pokemon champion. During your adventure, you manage to stop the evil Team Rocket, who want to steal Pokemon for their own nefarious purposes.
Gameplay: Pokemon is NOT child's stuff. It is one of the -if not-, THE best RPG series out there. The concept is so simple, yet so original. You catch Pokemon. You train your Pokemon. You battle your Pokemon. It is a very enjoyable loop that is just, well... Enjoyable!
Graphics: It may sound dumb to put "Graphics" in a Pokemon review, but the graphics are pretty good for a GBA game. Or a remake of an old GB game. They have nice, smooth sprites and all of the Pokemon (well, except for Ditto and Voltorb), have nice, detailed sprites.
Differences between FireRed and LeafGreen:
Finally, the part you've all been waiting for; the differences! I'll start off with THE most OBVIOUS difference: Both games feature a few different catchable Pokemon.Read more ›
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 .
