Featuring a new adventure that's filled with numerous
enhancements and innovations, this long-awaited sequel to Pokémon
Red, Blue, and Yellow greatly improves upon the series' winning
formula, and makes for an even more insanely addictive and wholly
absorbing gaming experience.
Like Pokémon Silver--which essentially is the same story, with
minor gameplay variations--Pokémon Gold casts players in the
familiar role of a young Pokémon Trainer who's out to collect as
many different kinds of Pokémon as possible. As in previous
games, gameplay consists mostly of exploration (completing
various quests in the process) and Pokémon battles, which employ
a unique battle system that's like a complex twist on
But, despite the similarities, it's quite apparent that Pokémon
Gold is a whole new ball game from the start. The game is played
out in real time, with the current time and day of the week
(recorded by an internal clock) having a direct impact on
gameplay elements, such as what Pokémon you'll find in the wild,
and when certain events occur and characters appear.
While there are too many new and improved features in Pokémon
Gold to list here, among the highlights are 100 new Pokémon
(including two new types), new evolution processes (including
breeding), and a more streamlined game interface that has
better-organized menus and button shortcuts.
Although it's easier to progress in Pokémon Gold than in the
previous games, the sheer amount of fun and game time that's
involved is daunting. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better
value than this one. --Joe Hon
