"New Concept to Pokemon Cards!"
Well this game is the new version of Pokemon Trading Card Game. This Game Boy game has many Pokemon cards that aren't even seen in Pokemon Original Card Game. There are many cards that you must collect.
Storyline/Gameplay: 9/10 Well this game is a little different then the first Trading Card Game. In this game you must retrieve stolen cards from a group of card theifs. They will try to do anything to steal cards. You must travel around the card game world to retrieve stolen cards, save card leaders, and return the stolen cards to their rightful owners. There are many many cards to collect so it will be quite hard to complete the game. You must open many booster packs, trade with many friends, and do Card Pon, which can get you cards that are not available in booster packs. There are also new people to battle. Each time you win, you can obtain new cards. Also, in this game, there is a game center so you can play games, winning new cards. As you collect more cards you can have machines build your decks. This game is by far the best Pokemon Card Game out there.
Graphics: 8/10 The graphics is okay. It is not the best but it is quite acceptable. Each area is quite bright so it will not put much strain on your eyes. The design on every card is pretty good, but I believe the detail could have been better.
Music: 10/10 The music is pretty good. When Imakuni or Red Imakuni is in a room, the music gets very funky. When you are in the room with Grand Masters, the music will get intense. In a normal room, the music is calm and happy. The music is definitely great.
Replayability: 10/10 This game is definetely repeatable because there are many cards. And the game play is hard enough to beat. You must win many battles to obtain some cards, and you have to win games in the game center and do card pon to get some rare cards, so it will take a while.
Rent or Buy?: Buy This game is a pretty good game to own, and since it will take a while to beat, I would recommend you buy it.
Overall Rating Of Pokemon Card 2:
This game has many ups, and not many major downs. The story line and gameplay is pretty good, so 9 out of 10. The graphics is okay, but not the best, so 8 out of 10. The music is out standing so 10 out of 10. This game is a 100% replayable game, so 10 out of 10. Over all, 9 out of 10. Congratulations Nintendo!
