Yes, you're all thinking "It's not going to be any different," "How could they possibly make it any more interesting than it was in 1?" etc. Guess what?
Game Freak & Nintendo and whoever else produced this game have achieved a miracle.
I played the Japanese version of this game, I still don't know what the story is about (since I don't really understand Japanese) but I can tell you this: 1- Visuals are beautiful. For a Nintendo DS. The colors are vibrant and everything just makes you happy and tingly on the inside. Now if only they could bring back all the other islands like Hoenn and Johto and smash them all into one game. That would be EPIC. 2- Just because it's still in same ol' Unova doesn't mean it's going to be the same ol'. Almost everything is different. Even gym leaders are different and cities have either grown or... well... I'll let you find out yourself. 3- The new features like the Pokemon Tournament and that little cinematic thingamabob are quite interesting and a good distraction from the oh-so-many Pokemon you still have to see/catch to complete your Pokedex. 5- There's a new feature where you can gain medals! Sort of like achievements on the Xbox 360. These could be dangerous for people with OCD. The Pokedex itself is dangerous for people with OCD. They take the 'GOTTA catch 'em ALL' a bit more seriously than any other hardcore player.. There's one thing that ticks me off though: Caves. Pokemon will still jump out on you even with Max Repel on. That ticks me off more than it should. Hmmm. What else can I tell you?
Well, it's awesome. It's worth your money, and if you have a 3DS, do buy the Dream Radar. Come on. We've all been dreaming about being able to catch Pokemon in our own living room. Now we can. HECK YES. Also, if this review wasn't helpful, check out IGN's review. Pokemon Black and White 2 scored a solid 9.6 out of 10! Because it's THAT awesome. One more thing before I sit in the fetal position waiting for this to deliver:
I WILL BE THE VERY BEST. THAT NO ONE EVER WAS. DUN DUN DUN.
TO CATCH THEM IS MY REAL TEST, TO TRAIN THEM IS MY CAUSE.
DANANA. I WILL TRAVEL ACROSS THE LAND, SEARCHING FAR AND WIDE.
FOR POKEMON, TO UNDERSTAND, THE POWER THAT'S INSIDE.
GOTTA CATCH EM ALL. Feel free to continue singing this in your head.
Pokemon for life, yo. -Sandra Y.
