IGN Reviews Pokemon Alpha Sapphire & Omega Ruby And Gives It 7.8

The reviews for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have started to come pouring in and the first to review the games is IGN. The publication has awarded the remakes a solid 7.8 out of 10 stating that Nintendo has done a fantastic job of recreating Hoenn. However the site says that there’s just too many water Pokemon and too many HMs. Here’s their verdict and you can read the full review, right here.

As a 3D remake, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby do a fantastic job of reintroducing Hoenn. Little details, like characters turning their heads to look as you pass or flocks of Wingulls flying overhead, make the region really come to life, and small updates and tweaks help make the journey smoother. Still, a few of its flaws are even more glaring in 3D, especially the excess water Pokémon and often dull navigation of their habitats. The added online features could help mitigate some of the type imbalances — I’m a huge fan of Wonder Trade — and there are even a few post-game surprises to encourage you to keep training well beyond the 25-hour main story.
