Hey You, Pikachu!

Eric Corp Gamer Retro Uprising Exclusive Review 2: Hey You, Pikachu! 12/27/2009
NOTE: Don't worry I'll get too, Kid Icarus Of Myths and Monsters someday...

:?( Oh no, everyone's gonna hate me for my honest opinions on this game. Fans of this game will say like:
"Don't make fun of this game, I like Pikachu, leave him alone!"
"Don't be such a hater, Pikachu is cute!", stuff like that.

Well, here's the review. Fans of this game should look away before they go criticize the bashing of this game in this review.

Graphics: 3.25/5
The graphics are pretty good, for a budget game. They are some problems, though. Like the look of certain things, it's doesn't look like it's supposed to be (to me)

Gameplay: 2/5
My god, the gameplay is plain lackluster. I know, it's supposed to be like you play with Pikachu and stuff and you have variety of stuff to do with Pikachu, like fishing, making stew, looking for treasure, and hitting a pinata, but once you do them, at least once, the game starts to get boring. The problem, also is the N64 Microphone, according to the commercials, Pikachu understands over 200 words*. 200 words, sure it is. Sometimes, even you say something that it can understand like "OK", it acts like I said "NO". So, it has a hard time understanding words, even when you're saying them clearly. Sadly, I used to be a Pokemon fan (during Generation 1 - 3) but even so, I disliked the gameplay. Overall, only Pikachu fans should love this gameplay.

Controls: 2.25/5
Other than the horrible N64 Microphone, the controls are simple (the Control Stick, the A and B buttons) but, the N64 Microphone kills the controls for me.

Sound: 2.5/5
The sound is basically Pokemon saying their names over and over though, cute, can get annoying (except for Pikachu, who is the only one to have a variety of saying its name) and the music is nothing special for this type of game.

Replay Value: 1.5/5
Only fans of Pikachu/Pokemon or cute factor will be playing long, as for everyone else, not really.

Overall: 2.3/5 = 46%
Hey You, Pikachu! is not worth your time if you're not a Pikachu/Pokemon fan or not just playing for the cute factor. Only these types will actually play this game.

NOTE: Sorry I bashed the game, like fans of this game but, this game just had to be reviewed to get out of my head. So, if you don't like this review, I'm sorry but, I just had to do it.
