Pokemon Rumble U Review
Hey guys Its Jake Here for another review! let’s get on with this and give you an insight into Pokemon Rumble U is the 3rd Game in the Rumble series and is a fairly good successor to the great Pokémon Rumble Blast game.
Pokemon Rumble U Gameplay
The Gameplay is quite different to the original two games because instead of levels it is always an arena style match, where you’re in an arena and you’ve got to keep defeating Pokemon till the boss comes… Which you will then own and get to keep it if you’re lucky!
The figures are back with a new twist however you can’t upgrade them yet. The only ones you can upgrade are the ones you purchase… At £3.99 for a blind pack (In other words you don’t know what’s in the pack). These Figures actually can be put on the Wii U Pad on a certain spot and they appear like magic on the screen, my mum really loved this part of the game.
One downside is say your favorite Pokémon like me is Dratini and you want to go through the whole game as this Pokemon you can’t because only a couple of Pokémon can be obtained, so it gets really tough in the meta-game but that’s beside the point.
On to the good bits, there’s challenges which once you complete them you get rare Pokémon like Blastoise or Keldeo or even Typhlosion!
In every Area there’s a few bosses you must beat untill you can go to the next area, so there’s also items like the Master capsule which makes whatever it hits a 100% catch rate and then there’s the time missions which are challenges which have to be achieved on a certain day or at a certain time (In Real Life time that is).
…!SPOILER ALERT SKIP FOR NO SPOILERS!…
So the gist of things are there’s a new stock of Pokemon toys in the Toy shop, when an EVIL Pokemon (Black Kyurem) somehow drop’s the cargo making it all go everywhere,Four capsules get pulled down the river which conveniently are Pikachu Snivy Oshawott and Tepig… anyway now you must Travel through areas defeating Legendary Pokemon with the Starters and get back to the toy shop……………………..HAVE FUN!
This is a great game at a very reasonable price and you have plenty of extras that you can spend money on to expand the game further. You can build up a fine collection of Pokemon figures just like me.
This game missed an opportunity which could have hyped the fans even more for X and Y,in my opinion it would be great if Nintendo made a downloadable content to coincide with the release of Pokemon X and Y (£3-£4 would be good) with a new story added and X n’ Y Pokemon in the game and this would make the best rumble game out yet .
I would give this a Jake rating of 4.5 out of 5 because this game is totally awesome, this game a fun and has been really well thought out. I love Pokemon games and this is great for all ages.
