Omega Ruby is excellent remake that truly stands out among the others in the franchise. With over 700 different Pokémon you won’t get bored searching for new ones, but on top of that it gives old players of the originals a great sense of nostalgia and good memories. That’s not to say that this game isn’t for newcomers, because they will have just as much fun with this game than the nostallic players.
Graphics: The 3D graphics look awesome on the 3DS, and everything from the Pokémon to the environments look great in the new edition.
Gameplay: If you’ve played other Pokémon titles then you know what to expect. It’s the same old fashion game, but of course with a polished update that makes the series feel fresh and entertaining.
What’s Different: Of course X & Y introduced Mega Evolve and this game is no exception to that new type of temporary Pokémon evolution. For players who didn’t play the last games in the franchise just know all you have to do is find special stone to make your Pokémon do this special evolution. I don’t remember if this was in the original, but in the 3DS remake you can actually sneak up on Pokémon you see hiding in the grass.
Story: The story isn’t the best, but then again the gameplay and catching Pokémon is what matters in a Pokémon game, and it more than excels at doing those two things very well. Bottom line is that Pokémon Omega Ruby is a must play for all fans of the series. I recommend picking up the strategy guide too.
