i was at first skeptical about buying it, but man was it worth it. once you get into it you really get the same feel you'd expect from any other worthwile pokemon game (crystal is still the best). although some of the new pokemon are ridiculous, it is still fun to catch em all. i am not very far, but i can tell i will have fun.

Pokemon black and white is the 21st century style of red and blue, staring over 150 brand new Pokemon. the graphics are simply amazing 3D buildings signs and trees are really cool. pokemon no longer do the 5 second movement thing, the pokemon now move rather than that 5 second dance they do. out of the new 150+ pokemon to choose from alot of them wernt very creative only a couple of cool ones to choose from. one thing i didnt like is there is no battle tower or battle frontier to me that makes the game less enjoyable not being able to take battle challenges like you could in the past, but there is online stuff you can do like dream world and random battle
overall this game is a buyer i would recommend this to anyone who likes the classic pokemon RPG experience

after the disappointment of 4th gen. this is fresh start. you won't see anything from the past until the after-game, but that's where they start throwing everything at you. for example, once you go downstairs from your house,you will run into (SPOILERS). The end of the game is epic, and the mood of the is always changing. pokemon can appear depending on the season that changes every month. the 3-d affects are good,but the pixel can get on your nerves. over all, a good pokemon game,but for the people how want good wi-fi, wait until march 30th for game sync,basicly the rest of the wi-fi connection.
