Give these remakes enough time, and you begin to understand why Pokemon's formula hasn't changed much over the years. It's a seemingly simple and cute journey, but with the underlying potential for strategy in combat, and a massive number of adorable Pokemon to catch, you can't help getting hooked by Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

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.

The core adventure might not have as much soul as something like Red and Blue or Gold and Silver, but it’s a solid RPG nonetheless. It takes the best parts of the original game, enhances them with X and Y’s engine, and then makes improvements on top of that. It’s by no means flawless, as there’s clearly room for these games to improve and evolve into something even more refreshing.
