Super Pok┌mon Rumble (3DS)
Advantages: The new StreetPass feature.
Disadvantages: The Toy graphics haven't changed much.
Super Pokemon Rumble for the 3DS is the first Pokemon title to come out in the 3DS format and although all your little Pokemon friends look great in 3d the game itself doesn't differ too much from its predecessor, although admittedly you have a little more to do in this game.
Let's start at the beginning, if you know Pokemon Rumble the original you will know that you go around collecting toy versions of Pokemon, well that hasn't changed, only this time there are 600 Pokemon that you can collect, but the designers seemed to have been lazy and taken the pokemon straight out of the first game so the graphics don't quite mash up with the new system, it looks dated from the word go and that's quite depressing having spent out a wad of money.
Then there's the game play itself, you still have to walk around battling different Pokemon but go to fast and you can run right by some on them, blink, oops, missed it, when you do defeat all the other pokemon in that area you are rewarded with opening up the Battle Royale arena where you must defeat all the pokemon present to be crowned Battle Royale Champion. When you defeat Pokemon you can run around picking up extra time and you may need this to defeat the Boss at the end.
With Team Battle you can choose two other pokemon and battle as a team of three but you can't switch pokemon during this battle. There's also the choice to Charge Battle, which sees you sending a large group of pokemon into battle against another group, you have to mash the A button and quickly rotate to build up your charge and if your team are stronger than the others you'll advance.
There are some good features in this version, I like the Glowing Fountain where you can restore your pokemon's HP and revive any that have fainted. I also like Drilbur, if you can find him in a field you can wake him and he drills a tunnel that you can use to move from place to place, which is kind of cool and saves on time spent walking in previous games.
What is really different about this Rumble is using the wi fi, once you and your friend have both cleared the Battle Royale you can invite them to play with you and this increases the amount of pokemon you will befriend and you can help each other out by having your pokemon stand beside there's to restore their HP.
Using StreetPass let's other players visit your Toyshop and can get you a decent amount of money as they buy your Toys, on a sliding scale the more visits you get the better chance of you being able to find the special pokemon in the game.
You will get a registration card appear when you 'meet' someone which allows you to see what pokemon they have and battle against them. If you win, you can 'borrow' their best pokemon to battle in an area but they will disappear once you leave that area.
All in all, it's new meets old with some of the best features coming from the new design, if you love Pokemon and want to 'catch em all' then you just have to buy this game. For me it's worth the money even though I know some critics have panned it.
Summary: If you like Pokemon Rumble then you are going to love this.
