A damn fine Pokemon spin-off game. The sequel rocks too!

User Rating: 8.5 | Pocket Monsters Stadium 2 (Japan) N64
Pokemon Stadium, like its follow-up, is a very unique experience. You can either battle in different ways (1 on 1, 1 on 3, 2 on 2, etc, etc.) or play mini games which are seriously fun and varied in difficulty and what you have to accomplish to win. That's not all you can do though. You can play your Pokemon Blue or Red games here too if you beat the story mode once I believe. I think there are a few more things you can do once you pass the main screen too like go to the Pokemon Center and manage Pokemon stuff or do quick set up, random battles.

I guess that might not sound like much, but it's a pretty engulfing game. Now that I'm giving my N64 to my friend (with this game) hopefully we can get some use out of it (and get the sequel too!).

One of my favorite Pokemon spin-off games.

Final score ------> 8.5/10
