What does Alex think of the remakes overall?
If I formally sat down and wrote a review for this game with a fair, critical analysis, I would probably give the game somewhere in the 8-9 range. It’s definitely better than X and Y, and taken as a whole, the games are great. I think a lot of my issues stem from the Slow Start this game has as well as some of the clear missed opportunities (I don’t think I would mind the Battle Frontier thing so much if they didn’t tease it so brutally). Moreover, it’s clear that these games follow X and Y’s “we need to make it so everyone can beat the game even if all semblance of challenge is erased in the process,” leading to an experience a little more sterile than it needed to be. They could be better, but like I said, they’re great.
