When I heard they were making a remake of Silver and Gold, I fliped! I have always loved the Johto series the most, but my orginal stopped working correctly. So I quickly reserved it at Gamestop.
Anyway, the game is a lot like the orginal but deftianley better graphics and sound. I espically noticed the differences in the water. It looks more natural plus the sound of the water fades in and out as you approuch it. The story is still pretty much the same but a few minor changes here and there. Like the Komono girl...I don't recall her in the orginal. But it's been years since I played it.
Oh, the mini-games are pretty cool and fun. I espcially like the chopping blocks one. The Pokewalker is awesome! I'm a person that likes to take 40 minute walks a day, so it's nice that I can take a Pokemon along with me!
So if you are a true hardcore Pokemanic, buy this game!

Let go ahead and face it, Pokemon has been one of the few big name franchises that just keeps all of us waiting for their next release, much like Final Fantasy. It always has something new in every game, whether it be simple, small, big, or just interesting. This game is no different.
Though belonging to the Gen IV, they have mopped the floor with Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Everything has a nice rendition to it. Grass is no longer '2D' and is now 3D, almost looking like small shrubs. The graphics are smooth, the soundtracks of the original Jhoto reign has be reformed with some new things, also very nice. They have even brought back what we, or at least I, have always liked: The Pokemon following you like Pikachu in Yellow Version! Any pokemon you have in the first slot of your party, no matter if its an Onyx or a Pichu, will follow behind you. You can talk to it and it will yawn or do something, and it can even pick things up like the small Pokemon could in Heartome City in D and P.
The Storylines incorperating Ho-Oh and Lugia are just lovely, and I think the only thing bad about this new game is that you cannot capture Suicune[SP?], you have to trade it. Other than that, this game is worth the buy and the cherish. The pokemon walker is a lovely addition as well. You can capture pokemon in it as you walk and get items as well. The game is amazing and well worth as many hours as you can pour into it. And not to be as long winded as I already am, but...WOW, Its just pretty.
