Pokemon X Review by: cmp81Great Game...Overall
Pokemon X was an amazing game, don't get me wrong. It had a few flaws that i feel like a worth pointing out though.
This game has the best graphics yet, but thats how most games go and NOT the reason why i gave it a 10. Pokemon took a leap of faith in my mind. They went from the normal pixely RPG game, to having a full blown 3D game that looks nothing like the games before it. It blew my mind, to see my favorite little old game in 3D!! I am extremely happy with Pokemon's choice to go 3D.
The sound in the game is good, its catchy and all, i get that. For me though the Pokemon sounds are very memorable, even though I liked X's sounds for all the towns, they aren't memorable. Seriously, if you've been a pokemon fan from the beginning, you still remember the Pallet Town "Song" they have. Overall, their sounds are good but not as good as they could be.
I loved it!! I couldn't set it down until I had beat the Elite Four! Just the rush of finally having a new pokemon game to explore made me go crazy. The only negative I could say to this is that I will most definitely be playing it again and I still am. After I do what I want for a while I probably will put the game down for a while.
The story is amazing, just like all of the other pokemon games. You have you "evil" group, they you the hero comes and saves the day and gets a legendary pokemon in return. The only thing is that I was expecting a little more. The story was great, but it didn't get very much into Lysandre, you didn't learn much about him. Not to mention Team Flare was kind of dumb in my opinion. Also the story seemed sort of rushed to me. It was still a great story overall though.
This was the lowest rated quality on the list, but for a good reason. There was still many cities to visit and all, but my only big problem with this.So for me the second you beat the game there is literally nothing to do. There are no extra cities to visit. (Except the small aville town). It saddened me greatly. I was hoping that mabye that there was an extra region to visit or something, but no luck. The Only problem with this game that I can see is the depth.
I don't mind that this game was easy, which it was most definitely was. I was overleveled the whole time and I didn't do any grinding whatsoever. I'm fine with this and all but i only wish there was a way to up the difficulty. Or at least a hard mode unlocked after I had beaten the game.
I just want to do this before i give my final evaluation. The only thing I have to say about this game is that the new generation pokemon were mostly dumb and not very useful. There were many great ones but my team ended up being only 2 6th gen. My starter and sylveon.(I love sylveon for some reson!) It doesn't bother me that much because it didn't change my gameplay very much. Really not at all actually. Two more things. There were only the two legendary pokemon and this game. (Not counting mega-evolved mew) There were no trifecta pokemon (such as landarous, thundurous and the other one i can't remember). It was only those two. Lastly, There were only around 80 new pokemon in this game, which is very little for a pokemon game.
Pokemon X was a great game overall. It was amazingly fun and I had a great time playing it. The graphics were more than I could have dreamed for. It is a very addictive game and very fun to play. The only real problem with it is there is nothing to do aftergame, which is one of my favorite parts of the game. I was very disappointed for this reason. I would have rated this game much higher if not for this. Also the antagoist team was not to good.The only reason this didn't get a 9 was because of what I said in my final thoughts. The new pokemon were not too exciting, and there were not many new ones in general.
