My 7 year old nephew loves this game. He gets bored with games easily because he plays so much and many games are just different versions of the same theme. He has had lots of fun with this one and hasn't gotten bored yet. It's challenging enough to keep his attention but easy enough so that he doesn't get frustrated.

I rented this game for my nine-year old brother and he really loved it! I am most likely going to buy it for him for his birthday. He liked that you could play as pokemon and go on little side quests and help them out or interact with them all. Over all a very cute game, a little repetitive but good.

PokePark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure features a lot of great fun. There are some problems with the game, but I believe the good far outweighs the bad.

Unlike the main series of Pokemon games, in this one you play as a Pokemon and you have to collect pieces of a Prism that was broken in order to save the PokePark. You have to go through several different areas, both with their own characteristics, such as Granite Zone being a cave, filled with mostly Rock, Ground, and Fire type Pokemon.

Throughout the game you'll become friends with as many Pokemon as you can by facing them in a variety of games; Chase, Battle, Quiz, and Obstacle Hop. In Chase, you simply use your Dash to catch the Pokemon. The Battles are much different from the main series, as this one takes more of an Action style as opposed to turn-based. You try to dodge the opponent and hit one of your three moves; Dash, Thunderbolt, and Iron Tail. Sometimes it may be hard to hit the opponent, but it's still pretty fun. Quiz is simple, the Pokemon asks you a few questions about the stuff that happens in the game. If you get all three questions right, you win it. As for Obstacle Hop, all you gotta do is hop on a few platforms until you reach the Pokemon. If you fall, you'll have to start at the beginning, and you're given a time limit.

Another main aspect of the game are the Attractions. These are mini-games where you're allowed to use Pikachu, or the Pokemon that are your friends. The stuff you do in these Attractions varies, but most of them are pretty fun and not difficult to do.

One of the downfalls is that it can be a bit hard to control at times. One example of this is during a "Chase" game. During the Chase games you can't change the camera angle, so if you run slightly off a bit it may get hard for you to see where you're going. Another downfall is that the game is pretty short, although you can still continue playing it after the main story's over.

I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys Pokemon.
