I rented this from gamelfy, thinking it was like the wii version (Pretty cruddy storyline, only like two pokemon) But oh was I wrong. This game gives you an all new story line, a couple different modes of gameplay, and almost every pokemon. If your thinking about buying one of the two rumble games, buy the latter (Rumble Blast)
Pokemon Rumble was a very good title in my opinion if you just wanted a fun battle game. If you liked it, Rumble Blast will not disappoint you. Everyone has an opinion, but most of them are just plain wrong and untrue. IGN plays so many murder games, that Rumble Blast seems to not be good to them just because there are no guns. Who cares if some person on a video game critic network or whatever thinks this game is mediocre or bad? It's what you think that makes the game good, for crying out loud.
The presentation was very inviting. You start out as a mii, correct me if i'm wrong, and you get a pokemon toy with a wind-up key. Just one toy can befriend all the pokemon from every region. Kanto, Hoenn, Johto, Sinnoh, and Unova. You have a special attack for every type of poke'mon,and you fight huge boss battles. The battle royale is very fun,too.
The graphics were great for pokemon toys. IGN thinks these graphics weren't very appealing. These are toys,OK? The origin of this game from wii ware, Pokemon Rumble, had graphics like this because it wasn't really meant to be a huge game. I guess nintendo and game freak must've decided to fit the graphics in a little more, and the rates went up. I'll admit, the mii's graphics weren't the best, but it works.
The gameplay was good, but a little repetitive. Running around and using an attack doesn't sound too fun, but what IGN said about it just isn't that right. The reason you go around and get new pokemon is not only to befriend them and become a strong alliance, but to experience what they're capable of. Yes indeed, it is quite tiring at the most part, but if you want to see and catch em' all, get to work.
Overall, this will be a nice edition to your 3ds game library. And don't just take my word for it, you might think it's better than what I thought. While the gameplay and mii graphics aren't at its best, the rest of the stuff is very appealing. Rent, buy, I don't care, as long as you have a blast. A Rumble Blast!
