Nope, I'm enjoying it alot. Ofcourse I'm not feeling overwhelmed by it but I'm also not feeling underwhelmed. About what I expected.

White 1 felt underwhelming, while white 2 feels very nice. God no no 3rd game. One sequal is enough

Word on the street is that it was planned as a trilogy

It went beyond my expectations at first. All of the new features, the graphics, seeing Cheren...The movies!

Then I got to... crap, I don't even know. I met team Plasma and they seemed to be back up to generic stuff. I don't know enough of the story yet to know, but so far it seems to have reverted to "defeat team whatever 'cause they're up to no good!" I've put it down for now.

The first one amazed me. The story actually made sense and had depth.

Please no, I got burned out when heartgold was released immediately after Platinum. I need time to settle down in one game before the next one comes out....

It's just fan speculation. GameFreak or Nintendo did not confirm this.

Actually, I thought it's a great game so far, I've yet to beat the main game.

It's the first time I've found myself really enjoying Pokemon in awhile even though it is similar to the last few entries. I know I will get burned out again after the intial hype and I beat it. I'm just looking forward to a new generation and hoping they push the 3DS to it's limits.

Of course, and add me damnit. Also, I thought it was bit underwhelming at the start, but the features later on were awesome.

1rst one was very meh. This one has a lot more to fill in the gaps :)

I think its another solid update. It was interesting to delve back into a changed region like we did back with G/S revisiting Kanto. The story had its moments, nothing amazing though. I think they need to get a little more creative with the plot for the next one. The graphics are amazing, but I still always consider the effects of having brighter crisper graphics. IMO, what I loved about G/S was its kind of darker and mysterious feeling given its dark toned atmosphere. When they changed that with the remake, it felt almost like a completely different game. No intrigue.

Technically speaking I think this was the best pokemon game yet. I loved the fact that they were able to put a challenge mode on it, even if it only increases opponents levels. The promise of that offering more of a "hard" difficulty in the future is promising now. I've felt like the games have been too easy for a while now. Especially since many of us that grew up with these games are far more capable now :) Although I do remember beating red version in 5 hours even when I was like 7 :P The different mix of options to make training or retraining pokemon easier has been very helpful too, like berries lowering wasted EVs. Join Ave's vast array of shops really allow you to make the game your own. Do you want to create all gyms/cafe's so you can have your pokemon gain a combined total of over 50 levels a day? Or maybe tons of artifact shops so you can rake in the shards to teach many of your pokemon new abilities. Or maybe a balance of everything. It was by far my favorite addition to the formula, and certainly can be improved upon for future versions.

White 2 is the best Pokemon game I've played since Sapphire and Colosseum.

I actually think BW1 had a better story, but when it came to side/post game content, it was lacking a bit. On the other hand, while the story was a bit weaker, BW2's side and post game content, and maybe even the in-game content is overwhelmingly good.

If BW was planned as a trilogy...I'd be game for it. No issues. Don't know where Team Plasma or even N goes from here, though.
