A Park Built for Pokemon fans

It’s Pokemon – in an amusement park. But wait, it’s much more than that.
In Pokepark 2: Wonders Beyond, a trip to the Pokepark for Pikachu turns into an adventure when an unknown force wants to enslave all the Pokemon in the area. Along his journey he is teamed up with four other Pokemon to uncover the insidious plan.
But most of the time you play this game, you will be using Pikachu or one of the other main Pokemon to do simple tasks to make friends with other Pokemon. These tasks include winning a battle, winning a game of chase, finishing a race course in a set time limit, playing Hide and Seek, getting certain items or answering a multiple choice quiz.
For each task you complete, you get berries that you can use to power up the main Pokemon (make their attacks stronger, give them more hit points or make them move faster.)
But it’s exciting to explore each and every area in Pokepark and a mysterious realm outside Pokepark, and there are a lot of Pokemon to find and make friends with. Also, the fights are simple and a whole lot of fun and the chases and race courses are also thrilling. This game will go for about twelve to fifteen hours to finish – if you want to find all the hidden goodies.
There are a few problems with this game, though. The multiplayer aspect consists of just four mini games (which I say could’ve been tossed out for more single player fun).
The running controls can get imprecise, causing your Pokemon to veer off course. This can get annoying when you have to finish a race or catch another Pokemon in a chase challenge.
You have to sit through the credits twice as you progress through the game – which can annoy some players.
And those of us not into Pokemon will run for the hills after hearing the Pokemon say their name several dozen times while lots of text appear on screen.
But this game is really fun, and it delivers what’s promised. It’s one attraction fans of the show/card game ought to get their hands on. BUY IT.

The first game i felt was a super game. Now the first game seems like nothing. Pokepark 2 Wonders Beyond is a great game. It exceeded my expectations. This is in fact not the same pokepark as the one in the first game but in fact a different one. Though it seems it is the same Pikachu as it knows Iorn Tail ( Pikachu had to learn it in the first game). Several Pokemon from the previous game return. The edition of Unova reigion Pokemon was fun too. A great game over all

The game plays very much like the first. Same good graphics, fun games, interesting story. The one problem is they still didn't fix the walking problem.

Other than that, it's a fun game for kids and fans of Pokemon.
