by Mike Rose 4/10/2013
Product: Pokemon X / Pokemon Y
Developer: Game Freak
Genre: Adventure, RPG
Late last year, I finally managed to escape from the unrelenting grasp that Pokemon has had over me for so many years. I mused at the time that if Nintendo could back up Pokemon's transition to Nintendo 3DS with new features and fresh ideas, I'd probably be back.
So here I am, at three in the morning, not just back under Pokemon's spell but convinced that Pokemon has never felt better than this.
Pokemon X and Y isn't just a revamp, or a simple transition to a properly-3D perspective - this is the biggest shot in the arm that the franchise has ever seen. It's a new beginning, and one that may prove just as important as the seminal Pokemon Red and Blue.
A true evolution of the series, Pokemon X and Y is the most important, expansive, exciting monster-battling title since the earlier days of the franchise
