What Gamespot Users have to say about Pokemon HeartGold Version

    It may seem like just a mere remake on the outside, but it is so much more on the inside

    Rated on June 14, 2012 by SR71halo

    No matter how old I get, I can't help but enjoy the Pokemon games. There's something about them that makes them some of the finest RPG experiences in gaming, and the DS games are no exception. After...

    An amazing remake that is packed with content

    Rated on October 22, 2012 by codylubrano

    When I was young and I had the original Gold version for the Gameboy Color, I played it and loved it like pretty much any installment of Pokémon, I wouldn't have said it was as good as the Blue and Re...

    The Good: -Great visuals (Great update over the past 10 years and the addition of changing seasons is a nice touch). -Catchy, memorable soundtrack (Still sounds as great as it did in 2000). -Having...

    Nostalgic remake

    I haven't played a pokemon game in over a decade plus, and heartgold was the first pokemon I came upon playing once again. I really like this remake. The enhanced graphics on the DS make the pokemo...

    Loved the originals? Get it for the nostalgia. Never played them? Get it anyway. This game is the best RPG ever made.

    For many people, Gold and Silver were the best in the whole Pokémon series and I gotta agree. Why? Unlike the other ones, Gold and Silver had 16 badges and two regions, which made the game much longer...

    Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver is a flawless masterpiece- it is, quite simply, the greatest handheld game ever created.

    Rated on March 16, 2010 by charizard1605

    It is perhaps hard to argue the fact that Pokemon today represents the most lucrative property in gaming. With sales having touched 200 million in little more than a decade, and each release running i...

    Brilliantly designed game with high level of graphics for a ds game. Fun to play and hours of gameplay.

    Amazing Pokemon game, bad remake.

    Rated on March 20, 2010 by cheeeba

    Before I get flamed, let me say this really is an awesome game. This and its Soul Silver counterpart are both really fun Pokemon games. But being a remake of the classic Gold and Silver versions it ...
