Quoted from Pokémon Diamond Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Pokémon Diamond reviews & previews
"Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Versions look to be promising additions to the Pokemon franchise. The classic, addictive training, trading, and collecting mechanics will be reintroduced on April 22nd, and never before have Pokemon games shown such early promise. This could be the second coming of the Pokemon revolution, and will hopefully reinvigorate some respect for Nintendo’s life preserver that kept them afloat before the Nintendo DS and Wii came around."
"I expected Pokemon Diamond and Pearl to be the fourth coming of the Pokemon series, and it most certainly is. These games are the real deal, they’re every bit as good as Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, and previous iterations of the series with new Pokemon, challenges, gyms, and side quests."
"2006 will be a good year for fans of Nintendo's Pokemon series."
"The additions and alterations aren't game changing, and Diamond and Pearl do what the Pokémon franchise has always done best--deliver an accessible and highly addictive role-playing game experience."
"The developers more capitalize on the system's capabilities in function and interface rather than visual and audio presentation. Sure, there are elements going on here that couldn't be done on the Game Boy Advance, but it's hard to argue that the game looks and sounds a heck of a lot like the past portable versions. 8-bit limitations drove the game's original style, but now that the limits are no longer there it's a little bit of a letdown that Game Freaks played the whole Pokemon production conservatively instead of pushing something more epic. The gameplay holds up incredibly well a decade later, but we're still looking like a ten year old portable game here."
