well the main story is fun not to mention bringing back the original pokemon that all got us started. The 1st region is accually very fun and at the end you get to catch, you geussed it, lugia!. once i finished the first region i was so tired of trying to get there i was almsot sick of it, and the 2nd region seemed, half-(BEEP) because you go to a gym get the badge move on. So its a fun game just next game if our gunna have 2 regions make sure that they are both put = amounts of time into it
Overall it was an okay game, kind of seemed like it was in slow motion half the time. Not my kind of game, I'm more of a fast pace gamer. I grew up with Pokemon and was in junior high when pkm silver, gold, & crystal came out for gb color. So at first I was excited that they remade this amazing game and couldn't wait to play. I just received it in the mail today, and I am returning it today. No offense to the others who loved this updated version, guess I'm just old school.
Pokemon Silver,Gold&Crystal have always been my favorite generation on Pokemon games, although, every time i play it my team consists of only generation I Pokemon minus the starter :D, so i was completely stoked when a friend told me remakes of the games came out. immediately i got this ginger kid to give me his DSlite (later giving me his DS as well HA!) and i rented it off GameFly. So far i've got 50 or so hours on it, and i'm still enjoying it just as much as i was at the beginning of the same. i'm in love with my team, (Articuno, Pikachu, Red Gyarados, Dragonite, Kadabra, and Typhlosion) i also like to mix it up with a Snorlax, Tyranitar, and Mewtwo. Some nasty pokemon.. Overall i give this game a straight up ten, hands down. When your mom's making you food, and you're bummed because 20 minutes seems so far away when you're hungry, just play some Pokemon Soul Silver, and the time will fly. This game is about as hard to put down as a piece of wood drenched in gorilla glue. I'm a diehard Pokemon fan, always have been, always will be. I started out with blue version one Christmas morning some years ago, and i've been hooked since. The graphic change is so much different, and everything makes more sense. With the 2D games i couldn't real make out some objects that made me feel silly when i saw them in 3D. Stoked is an understatement before i played the game, SOAKED are pants when i played the game. ;
