Every time I think I'm losing interest in Pokémon, Game Freak does something to reinvigorate me. The Pokémon Pearl and Diamond remakes last year were fine, though I ended up spending more time just playing the original Pokémon Pearl again. I needed something like Arceus, I think, to get me to once again drop dozens of hours into a single game. This is a brave, bold game into new frontiers for Game Freak, and it confidently promises a new and revitalised future for the series.

A fantastic game. The future of the franchise, never before a Pokémon world has been so alive, neither in the mediocre anime adaptation. TheA fantastic game. The future of the franchise, never before a Pokémon world has been so alive, neither in the mediocre anime adaptation. The graphics without doubt can grow exponentially in next chapter, and could step from a incredible game to a proper masterpiece. A great hope for the future.

Pokémon Legends Arceus is a great game amazing open world feels like a true RPG catching Pokémon is better than ever Pokémon models are great the Pokémon battles are amazing This game is a new positive direction to the Pokémon franchise also the Exploration is amazing and is very rewarding the ranks are nice. Arceus is a great visual game with the mechanics of the game not being repetitive at all. The story is great and the unique pokemon to the game are the most coolest things you ever saw Overall Pokémon Legends Arceus is one of the best Pokémon games ever that I recommend buying.

I’ve dragged myself through Pokémon games in recent years, but not with this one. Pokémon Arceus Legends is the future of Pokémon games. It’s the game we’ve all been waiting for for years, with a new and fun way to catch Pokemon, a story that adds to and pulls from Pokemon lore and a region you can genuinely get lost in. Pokemon Legend Arceus is Pokémon, evolved.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus's gameplay is simple but incredibly rewarding, stripping away much of the tediousness that has plagued recent entries in the series to focus on what's fun. Those who grew up with Pokemon should like it especially, as while it makes dramatic changes to the core formula, it somehow feels truer to the spirit of Pokemon than the older releases.
