Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia
This game is really good. I got it for Christmas and i've played it so much. I like the new capture styler and the way of capturing pokemon. I also like that there are seventeen partners to choose from. The bosses are a bit hard, but if you practice you'll beat them. The storyline is very, very good it is long and takes many unexpected turns. The online missions are fun and I like that you can transfer pokemon to diamond or pearl. I wish there was a multiplayer, but there isn't really anything you could do. You couldn't battle, and trading wouldn't be that good. The graphics aren't as good as diamond's, but they are pretty good. Occasionally, i noticed a few pixils. I like the ranger's new outfit a lot. It is much better, same with the hair style. I like the new capture system, how you dont have to keep the stylus on the screen the whole time. I like all of the new pokemon, such as Lucario and Heatran. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes pokemon or RPGs. It is a great deal for the price.
Pretty decent adventure game...
I got Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia for Christmas. This game is nice and it kind of is a little boring at first doing the little missions, but when you do the big missions then this game get good. The challenge of this game is pretty good, some pokemon are easy and some are difficult. The controls are simple all you need to know is how to is draw a circle around the pokemon to catch it. The interface is great to play with. The sound or music is just like something you would hear on the show pokemon, it's ok I guess. The character Customization is well, at the beginning of the game you have on a school uniform, but when you graduate from the Ranger School you get your sweet official Pokemon Ranger uniform. The length of this game is good enough not too long or too short. The storyline is excellent because you just became a ranger and you do all these missions that take you to different places in the Almia region. So I would recommend this game to anyone who likes Pokemon, you should get this game!
its my first pokemon ranger game. i must say, before i bought it, i've heard a lot of reviews about how horrible it is, and i must say almost everything they complained about was wrong. the sound was good, the storyline kept you guessing and was interesting. the only thing is that it's a little too easy. either that or i loved it so much that i could hardly put it down and i completed it quickly. once you get practiced at it, you'll easily be a master
I played this game for three weeks and I still hadn't beet this epic game. Anyway you play as a pokemon ranger and you have to save the Almina regin by capturing Pokemon and using them in boss caputres and and in target clears.You also get to pick your Partner pokemon unlike the other 2 games.This game is just amasing and amusing to any fan of pokemon.
This one is a real stinker
I was extremely dissapointed by this game the storyline was really boring and pointless, and the charcters are anoying and talk endlessly ( the dialog is soooo cheesy too and almost painful to read). It has limited pokemon action so its easy to forget that your even playing a pokemon game. The graphics are horriable, it was like they went back to GBA all over again (most of the charcters look the same). I could hardly tolerate the music for more than ten minutes. The thing I was looking forward to the most was the missions and quests but they turned out to be easy and proved to be more of a nuisance than anything else. The most stimulating part of this game was the lame sequence to capture the pokemon and making them your temporary partner after mindlessly making circular motions on your touch screen and avoiding the pitiful attacks of the pokemon. In conclusion safe your self the misery and don't buy this game it was brutal.
The Pokemon Company did it again!
When I got this game Christmas morning I immediately opened it and started playing it was a little boring at first because you have go to Ranger school. But when you get out of ranger school you get to start completing missions and quests. I think this pokemon ranger is way better than the first because there are many more pokemon and quests. Some of the pokemon bosses may be hard but if you have the right pokemon and poke assists you can accomplish the mission. Another thing that really got me going was that I got to ride on duduoI may be 13 years old but I still enjoy Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. I would recommend this game to. Anyone who loves pokemon, mario, and other nintendo games. I think this is one of the best pokemon games they have ever made.
Ok if you like pokemon
This game is for pokemon lovers. The graphics were good and it was pretty long with all the collecting but the only downfall is you can really customize your character unless you find stuff and then it just equips automatically. The sound was good but the music is slighty annoying and the story line was good and easy to follow along with. The game would be so much better if it had real battles. The battles were only spinning a stylus. If you didnt have a long stick (lol) it starts to hurt your hand. The boss battles were few but challanging and took forever. Its cool that you can use the pokemons abilities to boost your own power but if you use them the pokemon that you captured will run away. Its a game worth picking up if you thinks its cool but if you get the used game it will save you some money if you dont like it but then again you could just bring it back.
To buy or not buy???
I wasn't very big on the first pokemon ranger but i wanted manaphy so i borrowed it from my brother that hardly ever played it and it wasn't allt that but again i did it for manaphy.Now the real question is will this game hold a rare pokemon as well? The awnser to that is yes.Pokemon ranger 2 will have 3 special missions, I believe u get via events but i am not 100% sure.The first mission another manaphy egg, yes manaphy is obtainable in this one also,2nd riolu with moves such as aura sphere and shadow claw,3rd the very rare and sought after DARKRAI yes darkrai i am unaware of the details of how these special missions are unlocked, all i no is that i read on a site that those 3 pokemon will be able to be sent to your pokemon diamond/pearl game.i wll probly but just so i can get darkrai but thats just me. i hope i did not spoil anything for anyone but i thought i would just let yall now
The game was a waste of money. It takes the thrill out of pokemon. If you want a better side game buy the mystery dungeon series.
2nd best pokemon game
it was my first ds game ever and my first video game ever. love it
