Default Pokemon Colosseum Released!

Pokemon Colosseum Released!
-03/24/04-

Pokemon Colosseum has now been released!

Nintendo’s Pokemon Colosseum Description:
Pokemon Trainers, this is the game you've been waiting for. Starring a brand new leading character, Pokemon Colosseum delivers an awesome Story Mode that takes place in an amazing region unlike anything you've ever seen in the Pokemon world. And if that's not enough to get you excited, Pokemon Colosseum also features a Battle Mode which lets you watch your favorite Pokemon battle in full 3D!

Features
-An engrossing 3D Story Mode with RPG elements!
-Use the hero's Snag ability to rescue damaged Pokemon from wicked Trainers, then bring them back to their senses.
-Use a Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable to transfer your favorite -Pokemon from your Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire Game Pak to your Nintendo GameCube.
-Two games in one! In Battle Mode, you can watch spectacular battles as your prized Pokemon battle it out with amazing special effects.

Story Mode
Pokemon Colosseum's Story Mode is serious stuff. The game delivers a massive adventure which pits you against some of the toughest Trainers you've ever seen. The thugs routinely catch and damaged Pokemon, and you'll tour through a harsh land to undo their evil. Pokemon fans, this is what you've been waiting for -- an all-new Pokemon adventure in full 3D!

Pokemon in Darkness
When you battle evil Trainers, you'll see Pokemon that have been damaged by darkness. You bring them back to their senses and free their true personalities over a long process of encouragement and training. But first you must use the hero's Snag ability to steal Pokemon away from the Trainers -- another big first for the Pokemon world.

Realistic Battles
Drawing upon the power of Nintendo GameCube, Pokemon Colosseum's Battle Mode is far more realistic than the battles in the Nintendo 64 Pokemon Stadium games. You'll use the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance cable to send your team from your Pokemon Ruby or Pokemon Sapphire Game Pak to your Nintendo GameCube, then witness the true potential of your Pokemon team for the first time. There's never been anything like it!

For more information and screenshots of Pokemon Colosseum, go here: Pokemon Colosseum. Also, check out the official Pokemon Games website at: www.pokemon-games.com , it has been updated with more information about Pokemon Colosseum.

This game is nothing like what was seen in the Stadium games. I just got it yesterday and it slaughters hours like there was no tomorrow, that's how much fun it is and how long you'll be playing it. The story mode is fantastic, and there are plenty of surprises. Even if you're just neutral about Pokemon, this game is worth playing either way.

The commerical may be rotten, but the game certainly makes up for it, and then some.

I agree... this is an excellent game! What a surprise to have it released on my birthday! I just recieved the game as a present, and it's definitely worth playing. I love all of the battle effects and all of the different stadiums. It's great!

I just bought it with my own money. Now I'm broke. Oh, well. It was sure worth the money and effort to buy it. This game really suprised me. This game is a real stepping stone for Pokemon history!

My Review:

Pros:
PC is a great game. It has a 3D environment, incredibly good attack animation, the ability to get old Pkmn, and (finally!) a 3D RPG.

The way you get the Pkmn is the fun part. You're rescuing them from trainers who mistreat them. You're also playing to stop the Bad Guys from conquering Orre.

The game simulates the Pkmn Centers in RS and also has the great visual reperesentations of attacks.

Cons:
The Graphics have not been updated to much. They still look like Stadium 1 or 2 Graphics. The characters are blocky and not smooth. It's like they are made of many rocks glued together. The Pkmn actually look better than the People. Even the world (buildings, towns, etc.) look(s) better.

Since Pkmn is an Anime, I assumed that the game would have Anime-like Graphics. Cell-Shading would have been much better for this game, since its more visual than Stadium 1 or 2 (in the Stadium games pictures of trainers were only shown in prebattle). You see the people and think "How could they possibly live when they're made from pieces?".

I was thinking that the Cell-Shading on Zelda is bad because it doesn't fit the other games in the series. It makes up with Gamepaly and Character Expressions but could have easily be done in Traditional Imaging. Pkmn is an Anime so Cell would have looked batter.

Another thing I was expecting was that since it's Visual, the Pokeballs would fly out of the Trainer's hand and could be seen all through it's path of being thrown. What's done is first we see the animation of the Trainer throwing the Ball and then it switches instantly to them standing there and the ball is landing and opens. I kind of didn't expect that in a Game where it's common since the Trainers always throw Balls now.

There are no updated 3D Gyms and you can't view all your Pkmn at once and choose from any you want.

Overall Rating: 8/10
This is high because it's first for 3D Pkmn RPGs and is done ver well but is brought down from a 9 by the above-mentioned Cons.
