Coming up with a very original game these days certainly proves very difficult and probably costly, which is probably why Sony only bother with mostly, (not all), sequels that really aren't that good, (raaah)! However, Nintendo, although being thrashed in the market by the aforementioned Sony machines, still keep churning out games on the plain of stunning innovation. Pokemon Snap is one of these games. Now follow me into a world of vicious monsters! The game itself is based on an episode of the Pokemon cartoon on sky one and very occasionally it seems, ITV. Coming from Japan, the cartoon is very quirky, just as the game is. The episode is called ... Read the complete review

Pokemon Short for pocket monsters, the franchise was an overnight success in the late 90s creating billions and billions of dollars for Nintendo with the release of Pokémon red and blue and the introduction of the anime series to western television. Now almost every household in the world either knows of or has some form Pokémon merchandise. Packaging The original I received over a decade ago came in a rectangular rather flimsy card board box with a number of leaflets including the instruction leaflets which is very different to how games are packaged now. Though in saying that the N64 still worked on cartridges instead of discs so ... Read the complete review

To be honest, I wasn't that optimistic about the game when it was first released, firstly because it didn't offer all Pokemon, and more importantly, the idea of taking snaps of these very Pokemon was hindered by the fact that the player takes a very specific route. This presents itself as a linear game, and a linear game it is. From the start, the game offers you a single course, the beach, and a select handful of pokemon to snap. In order to progress, you first must either have taken a predetermined number of pokemon, or have collected a certain number of points. Soon, you must discover hidden routes to progress, like the path to the volcano course ... Read the complete review

My opinion: When I bought this game, I thought it was excellent. But with in a few months later it was in the pile of games that I never play with any more. This was because it gets boring just taking pictures. I think the producers could have made it more exciting by also making the object of the game different. This is what I think the object of the game should be like. By making it, not only do you have to take pictures of wild Pokemon, after you have tooken a picture of them in the wild, you had to capture them in your pok'e ball. I also think you should have been able to move freely to explore, instead of being stuck in that stupid-boring vehicle. ... Read the complete review

The Pokemon craze has been at epidemic proportions for a while now and with Christmas approaching the number of Pokemon toys around is becoming ridiculous...scary even. Scary that we are being asked to pay the proce that some of the companies are asking for their Pokemon related products. Pokemon Snap is one such product with an over inflated price tage. Coming in at around Ł40 in the UK you may argue that this is probably the typical price for a Nintendo game any way. However, the diffence is that when you buy a game for the Nintendo at Ł40 you expect quality and yet again in seeking to cash in on the craze, quality has been left out here. OK so it looks nice, ...
