I can't believe this game got an 8.1 out of 10. With 166 reviews!!!!! Seriously? What kind of crowd IS this?
Anyway, I'm a game programmer, and this game is garbage. I will admit the concept of the pokemon ranger is a good one, and the previous game was entertaining. And it's pretty. But the storyline is ridiculous! My wife is a writer and she couldn't believe the redundancy of the writing. Albeit, it's a kids game, but last time I checked kids weren't that stupid. Let's give them some credit please. The majority of this game is the terrible dialogue, and then once I suffered through that, I realized that there are only three REAL guardian signs. The rest just activate rematches. What kind of reward is that? I feel like I should get a cash reward for playing this horrible, slow, redundant, repetitive game. Really, guys? That's quality gaming these days?
Thanks Pokemon Ranger, but I think I'll pass on the next one. I'll stick to the classic pokemon gameplay thank you very much.

This game just is not worth the time. First off the story seems very repetitive with barely any change from mission to mission. Another problem is that there is so much talking. I would be ok with this if the text wasn't so boring it almost seems they are saying things just to talk and point out the obvious you can already see. I was so bored with the dialogue I almost had to send it back early. Also why is everyone giving it an 8 when in the review they only point out the negatives of the game. The last game was so much better I began to wonder if they were both made by the same company. Don't get this game unless you have nothing better to do.
