In terms of remakes, it's a solid one, but ultimately it relies on the tried and true and kinda boring Pokémon gameplay loop that at this point is pretty stale. It doesn't really add anything new to the formula, besides updated graphics. Still, I really love the zany story of Sapphire and Ruby, so it was fun to revisit it.

Pokémon remains as unique as they come among RPGs—a monster collection game that effortlessly blends social gaming with deep battle mechanics. In returning to the series' third generation, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire bring back many of the elements that defined the originals while also being some of the most accessible entries to date. That said, they can be a little too easy at times, and the postgame content feels a bit lacking in light of what's come before.

For Pokémon fans, of course you should pick this up. For people asking “will this get me into the series?” the answer is maybe. I still think X and Y are a better starting point for players. There are some small improvements to the overall experience, just keep in mind, there’s nothing very revolutionary about Omega and Alpha.

We’ve been catching ’em all for 16 years now, but Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire promise to send nostalgia into overdrive while successfully retaining many of the recent improvements that Game Freak has made over the past few years. These remakes amount to a spellbinding conversion of the classic games – carefully woven to become a perfect starting point for newcomers, but also the perfect chance for returning players to dip back in.
