"Ok, but REALLY annoying"
This game is a special Nintendo 64 game. In this game you are actually able to talk to your Pikachu. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. You travel around the island, and even other islands to explore, make new friends, look for things, and just having fun.
Game play: 7/10 The game play can be fun, but can also be irritating. The good thing is you can actually tell your Pikachu what to do, and boss it around. You can also call it names and get it angry. It can pick up things, throw things, water plants, eat objects, and play with toys. That Pikachu can be quite cute at some times, but a big devil at others. You have to talk clearly and loudly into the mike or Pikachu will do something else or not do anything at all! This can be a problem when you're fishing or trying to crack the water melon. Ah another feature! You can play games in this game! You can go fishing to try and catch some rare Pokemon, play games with other Pokemon, or try to crack the water melon. There is also a mini game in your room where you have to figure out what the Pokemon on the screen is. The game play is pretty fun, but is mostly irritating.
Graphics: 10/10 The graphics is great. The colors are bright and brilliant, all the objects look very realistic, and the Pokemon (including the Pikachu) is very realistic. The graphics definitely deserves a perfect 10 out of 10.
Music/Sound: 10/10 The music and sound is also outstanding in this game. In the woods, the music is calm, bouncing around on the autumn leaves. The Pokemon also sound very good. Nintendo has gone all out on the music and sound!
Replayability: 10/10 This game can be a completely new challenge once you play it, because this game is very hard. I personally would not want to replay this game because when I was playing this game, I got very VERY irritated when Pikachu didn't listen to me. This game is completely replayable, if you have the patience to actually replay it.
Rent or Buy?: Rent This game is not worth spending 45 dollars on. This game will get boring after a while, and besides, you wouldn't want to play it every single day.
So lets check out the overall.
Game play: 7/10
Graphics: A perfect 10/10
Music: Yet another pefect 10/10
Replayability: A 10/10 if you're patient
Rent or buy?: Spend 5 dollars on this and rent it.
Overall: 7/10 Not the best game created. Nintendo could have done better.
