I do believe he is an actual Neoseeker employee. Regardless, would you prefer coming it out of a reviewer or the hundreds of users in the Pokemon forums telling to buy it anyway?

Good point, one that requires no contemplation. Still, a formal review isn't traditionally required at this point if you want to get a new Pokemon game into my hands.

Because it's not a user review?

But it was composed by one person, was it not?

Are you not getting the difference between a user review and a review made by someone by a Neoseeker employee?

Oh, all too clearly. I was just making a point that this was like a user review since it came from the someone's perspective.

The only difference is that this review is official to the site since it was written by an employee.

The other difference is...it's in much better quality then any User Review would be, considering it's Thrombosis's job.

Hey folks,

'tis true, I work here at Neo.

On some other fronts though, this could be considered a team review since it was myself and my son who worked through the game together*.

Also, in response to DXD's comment about how a review is hardly necessary at this point, I tried to address that.

First, by directing this review more at those who are new to what the Pokemon games are like.

Second, by talking more about whether people who already play the games will find value in this game.

This way I hope it's useful, or at least not bile-inspiring, for everybody.

Oh, and thanks for the voice of support there Jesh.

Cheers,
Adrian

*He got to keep it when we were done, I have to start over now that his pre-ordered copy has arrived.

Great review! I just realized that I did play a little bit of Diamond when it first came out and couldn't get past the way the fights were drug out so slowly. Is there a way to shut off some of the battle animations in this version? I just couldn't stand waiting for each pokemon to get called upon, and gave up on the whole series after only a few minutes of playing.

Haha Tek, Red? That long ago? That game was ace. Anyway, very nice review. Got the game a week ago, and I'm loving it. Haven't played Diamond for about half a year so Platinum is a nice way to get back into it.

Also if you get Platinum Tek, send me your FC and I'll teach you a thing or two. ;D

This would be beneficial to the people who are newcomers to this series in relation to the "veterans" as you call them, which I could be classified as.

I'd certainly say so, but there's never anything wrong with going back to the classics. I'd just officially finished my Blue and Red versions just last year during late spring.

I never buy portable games any more (or very rarely) I can never find the time, even tho I waste two hours on the bus/skytrain every day.
