We all remember the very first Pokemon games, Red, Blue, Green, and the oh so famous Yellow Versions. We all loved how original it was, on the number of Pokemon there were, and how it brought friends together for trading (and to use the ever so famous Copy Pokemon glitch through the trading). Now, about ten games later for the Gameboy, we have the Emerald Version, a remake from Ruby and Sapphire.
And let me tell you all, the greatness is still here.
It takes all of the good things from the first two games and makes them better. This version gives you more pokemon, pokemon that actually moves (as was seen on Cyrstal), and about twice as many Legendary Pokemon.
Of course, you choose if you want to play as Brendan (the male) or May (the Female), and it starts out much like a previous version did, by saving the Professor.
A lot is the same, except for the fact that you face both Team Magma and Aqua and has a more developed story.
Now, the only thing keeping me from giving this a 10 is the fact that you can't get all of the Pokemon unless you went to a Nintendo Event.
You CANNOT fight or catch four of the new Legendary Pokemon unless you were able to get to the event. And for a fifth Lenegdary Pokemon you need to mix your save from either Ruby or Sapphire that has a special item in one of the two previous games. But if you have either a Gameshark, Action Replay, or a Codebreaker, then you are able to get these five. For anyone who doesn't... well...
I would say that this would be a very good buy, at least a rent for anyone who loved the original game. This is a game for everyone to love and enjoy.
