History/ Game Background- Pokémon Stadium 2 was made by Nintendo and is the second Pokémon game to come out for the Nintendo 64 platform/system. Although it is the second Pokémon game to come out for the Nintendo 64, it is the 9th installment in the Pokémon franchise for Japan, and the 10th installment in the Pokémon Franchise for America. This game has all 251 Pokémon from the first two generations in it which was every Pokémon there was at the time. In this game you compete in either the poke cup, great  cup, ultra cup, and the master cup, with any Pokémon you choose. You make the full 6 Pokémon team, but only three picks out of your team can enter battle with you, so pick your three wisely.

Graphics- The games graphics can't really be compared to any other Pokémon game, except for its previous title in the Nintendo 64 series Pokémon stadium. To me the graphics in this game visual and colorization wise is of way better quality, then what was seen in the first Pokémon Stadium. The Pokémon look very realistic and the details in there design are spot on color and form of the Pokémon wise. The Pokémon,and  the stadium of which you battle in, as well as there animated moves are all in 3-D, which only added to the games appeal, but the game does lag/ freeze a little during game play. So for graphics I give this game a 9 out of 10.

Sound- The games sound isn't all that appealing, it offers nothing new. It has a mix of the soundtracks heard in the generation one and two games( example: Pokémon Red and Pokémon crystal). The acoustics and sound quality heard in the game are fine. The Pokémon cries can easily be recognized and heard and in my opinion has a bit more distinction between them. So for sound I gave this game a 10 out 10.

Addictiveness- Well for a game with virtually no story or dialog this game is highly addictive. I found my self playing for hours upon hours just battling the cups, and frankly I really was just fine with the fact I didn't need to train any Pokémon or beat gym's like some of the other Pokémon games. This is truly a game for Pokémon fans that just want to battle, and since you can battle non stop it has countless hours of game play. I would reply this game in any free time I would have, but its just suck a long game, but in keeps you very interested and ecstatic to play! So for addictiveness I gave this game a 10 out of 10.

Story- Well (sigh) this game has basically no story or dialog in it really, basically you are a expert Pokémon trainer and are competing in a series of very challenging competitions that push you common knowledge of Pokémon and their types to your limit. You compete in various challenges which difficulty goes as followed Poke cup- easy, great cup-fair,ultra cup-medium/advanced, and master cup-expert/intense. So for story I gave it a 1 out of 10, because there is no real dialog in it, as well as a protagonist or antagonist.

Depth- The game is huge, in terms of what you can do and as well as the diversity in the different battle cups. The game takes well over 24 hours to beat, because the game's A.I. Uses different battle techniques in each battle. The game offers players the chance to battle to see who is what many hope or wish to become a Pokémon master! I estimate the time to beat this game is well over 5-6 weeks. So for Depth I gave this game a 8 out of 10, because if your not using a gaming PC controller, you can't do feature this game has to offer.

Difficulty- This game is very difficult. The games A.I. Was clearly updated from anything I've ever seen or experienced from the Pokémon Franchise. What made this game so hard is the A.I.'s ability, when it comes to resourcefulness to plan and execute tactics that will easily crush your Pokémon team if your team is not well balanced and diverse when it comes to the Pokémon types. So for Difficulty I gave this game a 8 out of 10.

Overall: Overall I gave this game a 9.5 out of 10, because if your playing using a PC controller you can use all its features, and the game lag's a little bit during some battles. What all so made me rate the overall a little low is because the lack of story and dialog. I recommend this game to any one who wants to play a Pokémon game, where there skills at Pokémon are put to the test and for the Pokémon fans who just love to battle constantly none stop.

Nice review! Although, I'd suggest you change your layout font color, I had to highlight it to read it.
Other than that, good job!

Great review! Very well written. This was my favorite pokémon game, well, this and snap. The battles were balanced, if not frustrating at times (I learned to hate constrict). But enough of that. Good job here.

Very good review. I enjoyed reading it. I'm not a huge Pokemon fan, but this game can be entertaining to play against friends.

As far as the story goes, I personally don't REQUIRE a good story for a game to be fun. I can think of a TON of NES games that didn't really have much of a story but they were still awesome to play.
