Where to begin.....

I've played many Pokémon hacks. They were all good(most of them), but this one struck a cord with me. Dark Energy stands out above the rest. It's not like your standard Pokemon game. It's much more than that.

Graphics:10-The graphics were what they were for a Gameboy Color game. To a true gamer they don't matter, but I always liked the look of old

Sound:8-I always liked the music and sounds of Gold/Silver/Crystal. They bring back fond nostalgia.

Addictiveness:10- Everything about this game is addictive. The story, the gameplay, everything! I played beta 3.1 and I was astounded by everything that I found in this hack.

Story:9-I enjoyed the story very much. The game throws you in and makes you feel like you're part of it. The most unexpected things happen and I loved it.

Depth:9-For being an incomplete game, Dark Energy has a lot to offer. There are side quests to complete and legendary Pokemon to catch. There's also the Battle Simulator and The Sage's Tower. The map is very large and fun to explore.

Difficulty:5- If you're a fan of Pokemon, you'll find this game to be a worthy challenge. However, some points may be a tad difficult. Luckily there is a Battle Simulator in the game, so walking around in the grass isn't always necessary.

Overall, this is my absolute favorite Pokemon hack, and the only one that I've anxiously waited for another version to be released. I loved everything about it. Miksy, you've done an outstanding job. I eagerly wait for the next release.

Well this was a pretty descent review, yet I would suggest you add more details to your review next time as well. Otherwise you did pretty good job on making this review, anyway keep up the good work.

Thank you for doing this review. I played it for a second after seeing your review, because I have never seen this one before, thinking it would be just another Pokémon hack, but it is awesome! I am going to be playing this one a lot. Very, very good hack.

Good review, I am glad you like this game. I will certainly give this game a try because based off of your review, I think it will be a great game. Review wise, maybe a little more detail to cover all the categories. Otherwise good job, nice work and you clearly put a lot of effort into making this review. Nice job, you have what it takes to be a great reviewer, you have organizational skills, good amount of information for each topic, just expand upon it with all categiories because you can elaborate further upon your informational statements to prove your point and score them accurately. Remember that practice makes perfect, keep writing and you will master it in no time. Keep up the great work and keep writing more awesome reviews because I look forward to reading them!

Keep up the good work!

I would not mind seeing a little more detail about what makes the hack different. What you specifically liked about it, as it shows that you did enjoy the game quite a bit. Anyways, I really need to spend some time playing some of the Pokémon hacks, they seem pretty interesting. I am not sure where to start to be honest, maybe I will start here.

Hi, and thanks for the positive review Mageman80!
Since I had an account here, I felt like stepping in and possibly open up the confusion about what's making my hack worth playing.

I'm a computer science student in university level, and so, pretty good at programming. I'm also an innovative person and tend to pick up lots of ideas (and only implement the ones worthy of doing). So that's pretty much it.

The story of this hack ain't that good, and I actually don't like it myself that much either. If I had started the hack now (unlike I did in 2010), I would have come up with something far better. But apart from that, all the events of this game are built from scratch and a lot of scripting is very "beautiful" - especially if you're used to playing ordinary pokemon hacks in which you travel from town to another and nothing extraordinary happens. So what can I say - give it a shot! You'll probably like it!

Being only your fifth post, this is a great example of a review. You really nicely summed it up, which most newbies don't do. The format is awesome, and the fact that you liked the game is really good.

Keep it up! In later reviews, you should try to add a bit more detail in your reviews. That should come naturally to you, though.

May check this hack out... I usually don't like Pokemon hacks, but you make Dark Energy sound good.

due to the fact that you didnt actually say anything about the game aside from "i like this, its nostalgic", and a few words vaguely stating that there are a few things to do, id have to say this is actually a terrible review.

in fact. this isnt even a review. this is just you saying you enjoy the game, without saying WHY. 

also, to say that "graphics dont matter to a true gamer" is extremely ignorant, and makes you sound like a hipster. graphics are a very big part of the game, hell without them, there would be no game.  and poor graphics do in fact make a terrible game. take any of the chinese homebrews that get called chrono cross, ff7, and stuff like that. theres no possible way to turn any of them into anything even slightly playable, and the biggest reason is the graphics.

I'm enticed to try this hack out, but not because of your review. The few things you state in your review are either things everyone states in hack reviews (F.E. large maps to explore), or things already present in the orignal game (F.E. the music that brings nostalgia to you). Like I said, I'm willing to try out this hack, but more because of what I read in the hack's description. Which is a little bad too, IMO, because it supposedly tells me exactly what I can expect in the opening cutscene. That's not what a description is supposed to do...

But I digress. Thing is, the description of the hack says more about the hack than your review does, and as a result, it's more interesting to read than your review.

Your bit about the Battle Simulator got my attention though, that's something I haven't seen in any Pokémon hack yet. So I was about to read on, but apparently that was the end of your review already... But you see? You had me hooked here for a bit. It was a detail of this hack, that's not present in other hacks, and as such you had me interested. In a good review, the writer should mention EVERY thing that stood out to him, and for a hack with a rating of a whopping 9.5, you said surprisingly little about the hack itself.

Please don't take this harshly, or think of me as some meany who does nothing but bash other people. But you have lots of room to improve. And I'm sure you could, if you keep these things in mind. Good luck on further reviews.

And now, I'm gonna play me some Pokémon Dark Energy!
