Not simply a remake, but potentially one of the best games of this generation.

This game contains everything about pokemon in one package and although a remake, has plenty of great new features added to it. The storyline's reinvigorated and for those who played the original Gen II games, bursting with nostalgia! After you're done with the main storyline there is so much post-storyline things to do that you could spend just as many hours playing through them. I would recommend this game to any veteran or returning Pokemon fan. It 's also a great game to introduce new players to the Pokemon world at it's best. I find it very hard to see any negative points with this game but the only thing I can think of is how when I'd started SoulSilver I felt I missed some of Diamond/Pearl/Platinum's poketch features such as the step counter and the breeder apps. Those are fairly minor loses though, and the game more than holds it's own! I'll say once more, definitely recommended!
