    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hahaha! Classic dreams! Ahh... nostalgia is great. Catching all 151 classic Pokémon really brings it back. Although the game is a bit unbalanced, it it a great and fun game for its time. Have fun players! I hope you guys have a wonderful time playing this. It's worth the ten dollars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Good Game. Pokemon Red for the 3DS is very good. Despite being 20 years old by now, I feel that the graphics are great, but that might just be my opinion. I feel that this game is great, but the only thing that I feel would have improved it would be a touch screen option and a separate classic controls option, but it's understandable why it isn't an option. If you are playing but are more used to more recent games that make it easier on the player, then this one will cause frustration. For example, if you catch a few Pokemon, nickname them, and forgot which is which, then it will take a long time to figure out. I overall enjoyed my play through so far and was off to the elite four before I restarted for whatever reason. In the end, the game is perfect for any audience who enjoys a good RPG, and it has an actually possible goal of catching them all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pokemon old school This is old school. Not in a bad way either. I never played this one as a kid but now I get too. I am not too far but that hopefully will change and I can get my gym badges and be the best there ever was.
