Pokemon Heart Gold & Soul Silver
The Pokemon franchise has been around for a very long time, forcing generations of children and parents to shell out on new toys, games, movies and all kinds of weird poke-themed paraphernalia.
But the unrivalled success of the Pokemon franchise doesn’t just come from its “need to own them all” ethos, it also comes from a well designed series of games that capture the hearts and minds of those who play, children and adults alike.
Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver are the latest games in the Pokemon series and are essentially a re-hash of Pokemon Gold & Silver, mixed with elements of other titles like Pokemon Platinum and Emerald to create unique playing experience.
The premise is very simple; the player is given a low level Pokemon and sent off on a journey to beat other Pokemon trainers across the land. Fighting “trainers” allows your Pokemon to level up. You can also catch “wild” Pokemon and train them to be part of your team, making sure you combine different elements of skill, speed and strength between your Poke-friends. The aim of the game is to beat the best Pokemon trainers in the land and catch all of the Pokemon species (nearly 300 types).
Pokemon Heart Gold or Soul Silver would be the perfect game to buy for any Nintendo DS owner, providing hours upon hours of Poke-themed fun.
