Although this is a good solid N64 pok'emon title, its not quite as good, as say the original. Its the same basic gameplay, with some extras, but mostly your gonna want this for its connectivity with Gold and Silver. And for the 100 extra monsters you'll get with it. There are still plenty of game modes to choose from, but what is cool is that you can play your gameboy on the screen. That is pretty sweet and makes the game worth buying. Poke'mon fans will not want to miss this. It is Pokemons last romp on the Nintendo 64. And probably their best in a while. Next you'll just have to play the crap for the Gamecube.
