My personal review on pokemon battle revolution for the nintendo wii.
Release: Dec 7, 2007 »
Price around £30 in shops
''Battle Revolution caters to Pokemaniacs looking to wring every last drop out of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, but it's pretty worthless to anyone else.''
The game has a very much use of the DS connectivity. This was apparently the first game ever for the wii in the US. The actual gameplay can get very repetitive and so its not that much of a thriller game. Battles aren't presented very dynamically - I would of thought they would of been better then the DS version battles, but in my mind they lack terribly. Online support is really poor, and you usually don't get what your looking for. Apart from that, if you don't have Pokemon diamond and pearl for the DS, this game is technically a waste of money, as you cant usually do anything without them - If you do, your in luck, the game would probably be a great one for you, especially if your a major Pokemon fan. Pokemon Battle Revolution is the latest in a series that started with Pokemon Stadium on the Nintendo 64. Essentially, it is a single piece of the Pokemon experience--the actual Pokemon fights--that has been brought to the Wii and polished up to a high shine. The thing about Pokemon Battle Revolution is that, without any greater context of a grand adventure, Pokemon fights are kind of boring. Furthermore, the game's connectivity with Pokemon Diamond and Pearl for the DS ends up being a crutch - If you haven't already made the investment of time and money into one of those games, there's not much to get out of Pokemon Battle Revolution. The Pokemon in general hardly look anything like the the real TV version, let alone the DS version. You can only get Pokemon by your starter one at the beginning of the game , and from your DS, and a couple you can catch, and that is all. You can battle other trainers all across the world, which can be really challenging and at the same time fun. It is a big shame that I could not find the ability to do ''free roam'' as since its the newest game out of the Pokemon games, I would of thought it would of gave an ability to let you do a free roam with other players across the word, whilst online. What ever you have collected from your DS, you can import it onto your Wii, which is really simple to do. When you beat someone in a battle you will gain dome money, in return you can buy mystery items, food and clothes, stuff for your Pokemon, even hidden items which can be transferred back to your DS games. The attacks by the pokemon are a bit to plain which I hardly liked at all. The sounds I hated the most, and hardly sounded liek anything compared with the DS version. The graphics were not bad, again to plain.
A game which is only in benefit to those with a DS and a pokemon diamond or pearl game. Definitely not recommended for those you dont have it. 3 stars.
Summary: ds game not that good
