great graphics, the best in a long time till they came out with all of the new Pokemon X & Y and also Pokemon Black & White 2
Graphics: They're upgraded since HeartGold and SoulSilver and by that I mean it uses more 3D and the backsprites in battles are animated. But animated backsprites doesen't mean that it looks good, it actually looks pretty bad compared to the still ones from the previous games. The Pokémons are also cool and creative don't let the annoying Gen 1 fanboys trick you. Gameplay: The gameplay is just like HG and SS but there are new triple and double battles at random, there's also a few more new Pokémon moves and TM's aren't destroyed when you use them (Thank God) oh and you can't walk with Pokémon :( that sucks. After all SS and HG are just more fun and bigger games, Black and White are good starter games if it's your first time, but they're only good starting games HG and SS are great starting games. Story: The story is good, I won't spoil anything.
Very enjoyable over a long period of time.
I believe this is a stop up from most of the Pokemon games, but that's just my opinion. With the improved animation and new pokemon, it makes for a brand new experience that I have never before seen, and I've grown attached to the game and with all the new pokemon to train, level up, and to battle with online, this game will last a lot longer than most games. This is a huge step up from Heartgold/Soulsilver. It's great, easy to start off, and once you get into it, easy to master.
Very Fun to play as a kid!! Because I am!
Hi i recomond this game because when i played black 2 at the end of the game in nevema town you find out what happend to you after you try to find N and black play this pre-owned to get gamestop power up points
BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!
This game is a good game I have spent countless hours playing this game it is my overall 3rd favorite ds game of all time I highly advise casual gamers and hardcore gamers to buy this game.
Fun while the storyline is present.
A great game with improved graphics than that of the previous series. However, it tends to get dull after you've finished the storyline as the player is left with no incentive to keep playing.
This is my first pokemon game and I am completely hooked. I would definitely recommend this to a friend or any gamer. If you are thinking about getting a pokemon game then get it. I was weary at first but after playing it for about an hour I was really happy I decided to buy it.
Pokemon Black is GREAT!
Pokemon Black is a very great Pokemon game. Though it is the only one i have played, i loved it. If you have another pokemon game like Diamond or Pearl, AND If you have ALL The gym badges, you can get on WI-FI or something and get your Pokemon from another game ONTO Black. I LOVE THIS GAME!
A bit of a flop
Now, in no way am I one of those pokefans that hates the games just because they are new. I've played Pokemon since blue and have loved all of the regions from the coastlines of johto to the island of sinnoh I've played them all and I loved the games. I've clocked in at least 200+ hours each. Unfortunately this came to an end when i played that unbearable mess that was White or maybe Black version. I don't remember because those games were in no sense "fun" they ruined the XP system, gave us the worst Pokemon up date.. Ice Cream and Garbage bags ? Really? but worst of all was the incredibly corny story line about some brain washed kid and Pokemon being friends instead of tools... which almost every Pokemon is to all trainers except the protagonists... in this case N... this game was so bland that after i beat the elite four i turned off my DS and took it straight to BB to get 30 back... i had no interest in the after game because the legendary trio was so lame it wasn't worth it to me, I am going to buy B2 or W2 and hope that it is not quite this bad.
Great game, but not a great POKEMON game.
Personally, I have played all the Pokemon games and have thoroughly enjoyed them, however, Pokemon Black's sprites felt unoriginal and didn't have a Pokemon feel to them and just seemed stupid or like they had run out of ideas at some points. Don't get me wrong this game is good despite my rating but as an avid Pokemaniac I felt it didn't compare to the other games. I really didn't like the new map and wasn't getting the nostalgic feel in each city as I had previously. Another point is the characters in this game are REALLY annoying I mean you don't even have rivals anymore and your stupid "Friends" really need to go away sometimes.
