Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

What do these ratings mean?

Well here it is the new Pokemon game that the lucky Japanese DS owners have had for months and us UK owners have just got the game. You better be prepared because you are about to give up a lot of your time. The game starts the exact same way as the other Pokemon games you find a level 5 Pokemon in a bag that a Pokemon expert has dropped and so it starts an epic adventure to become Pokemon league champion.

 

Anyway the games new features are stylus controls handling the menus and battle screens it works well. Also it has a whole new 3D style (well kind of) that makes mountains actually look like they have a scale of height to them. Despite all this it’s still the same old Pokemon style.

 

There are also around 150 new Pokemon for you to catch and get this it’s no longer impossible to fill your pokedex and you can fill it with only seeing all of the Pokemon, which is great! This also means you can forget about the whole trading between consoles via a cable like old Pokemon games you use Wi-fi but more on that later.

 

To start off with though the game seem easier than previous instalments and it seem it is now easier to level up which with it being a kids games, you would expect. It however it is not a child’s game and at first what looks like a simple battle and level up system actually has a complicated underlay.

 

The last games had Pokemon contests that went up in rank and were good fun. This year they’ve been given a shake up and this year feature 3 events a beauty competition, a rhythm action tap the screen mini game and the same thing as last year perform a move to judges event. The problem with these new features is that it takes too long and when your hoping for a quick distraction from the battling you end up playing it for 20 minutes only to come last!

 

Despite all that Pokemon is as good as ever and is still one of the most addictive games there is and with online well I’ll tell you about online.

Pokemon now has a Wi-fi mode where you can battle and trade with people all around the world and is one of the best things about this new Pokemon. This also helps to fill up your Pokedex.

 

This new Pokemon game is great and is one of the most addictive and long lasting games out there. You can spent literally months playing it and no 2 games will be the same, however it doesn’t have enough new stuff and you’ll be left wanting more. Overall the online modes and all the other brilliant things about the Pokemon games are there and are great
