To many of us, Pokemon Gold and Silver defined out childhoods. We all claimed to be pokemon masters, as we strove to catch 'em all. We shoved our Skarmorys at our friends Tyranitars, to see who was better. And then we kind of moved on.
Nintendo has been remaking all of the classic Pokemon games, so I can understand some people being worried about these new changes. After all, these are our childhoods they're messing with here!
Well let me just say that we have nothing to fear. Heartgold and Soulsilver are worthing of the hours of our lives we lost to them in our youths.
With updated graphics, we can finally see all o four old favorites such as Charmander, Totodile, Miltank, and Onix on the DS. To be honest, I actually like the remakes MORE then I liked the originals.
With more challenges, pokemon, the ability to reface teh gym leaders with stronger pokemon, and additions to the story, these games will not disappoint.
Boasting the largest safari zone in any pokemon game, EVER, as well as the legendary pokemon trainer RED, you'll feel ten years old again as you run through Johto and Kanto.
That being said, there are some things that personally I don't like about the game. After playing White, and getting use to the menu system for it, the menu system for Heartgold and Soulsilver just seems... way less nice. And the ability to be able to look at a map with out getting the same call from your mother over and over again saying how she spent your money yet AGAIN (mental note, never let women touch my money).
But over all, despite some bumps that like to show up every now and then, I'd recommend this to anyone that ever like the pokemon games, or to people that want to see what all the fuss is about.
