I have played the original pokemon snap and it is one of my dearest memories from childhood. After having played the literal named New pokemon snap I have to say it's a nice and relaxed game.

Although, after the nostalgia eyes have dried out and I see the game more clearly. I wish they added a few more "New" features, like the player could still capture or befriend a wild pokemon and could use their abilities/moves to get different reactions on camera. Or the player could see the map beforehand and trace the path they will take in addition to preset tracks.

This is not to take away from the fact that I truly do like the new game. A spin-off long thought dead is now in my hands and its got all the same charm and simple fun as it did when I was younger (even though I seem to be a pitcher whipping apples at everything more so than the original). I love the snap games and this is a fun new entry.

On a different note... I have recently thought of a new theory. Back then early 1995-2010 there were fewer games that I was interested in. So therefore I was sort of forced to put more time into select titles, and therefore I was more invested in the world and growing the feeling of wanting to see the end. But now, with an ever growing backlog of games for every taste and pleasure, I find myself finishing less and less games and skipping dialogue or cutscenes because I feel I have to get onto the next one (assassins creed is guilty of this). Just back when my library was just zombies ate my neighbors, ocarina of time, donkey kong country, and a few others, I soaked up every piece of lore and information they gave. Just my own personal opinion, don't shoot me with a BFG.

Fans clamored for a Pokemon Snap remake for years, and with New Pokemon Snap, we've gotten even more than we bargained for: a great sequel that pulls from all eight generations of Pokemon released so far, dynamic courses that can be explored during both daytime and nighttime, and the ability to create an album of edited, personalized Pokemon photos (which you can then print or post online, a fitting evolution of the game in the social media era).

New Pokémon Snap might be one of the most thoroughly pleasant games that’s come out for the Switch, if not ever. While the core gameplay is the same as it was in 1999, everything about the 2021 game is better. The environments are visual delights, the Pokémon are lovingly recreated, and the progression and pacing are just right. If the hobby of gaming has started to feel like a second or third job, then New Pokémon Snap might just be the vacation you need.

Combined with the fact that each path has more than eight ways to go about it and the professor wants four pictures of each Pokemon, you end up with something that has more replay value than I thought would ever be possible. And that’s coming from someone who still pops in the Nintendo 64 original. This is such a pleasant surprise that I was hyped for this game and it still exceeded my expectations.
