Fun and Games at the PokePark
Bad guys are using delicious cake to hypnotize and kidnap Pokemon, keeping them trapped in an area known as Wish Park. It's up to Pikachu, Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott to save the day. Visit the various attractions of the PokePark and befriend over hundred different Pokemon from all five generations by playing mini-games and battling. Mini-games include racing, shooting cake ingredients, and completing platforming levels. As you progress through the game, you can unlock things for multiplayer.
Multi-Player and Multi-Tasking
Pikachu, Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott each have special abilities that you will need to use in order to proceed through certain parts of the game. For example, Snivy can double jump using Leaf Tornado, Tepig can break rocks with Flame Charge, while Oshawott can swim. In single player, you can switch between any of the four at any time. If you are playing with friends, you will each take control of a different Pokemon.
Great For Young Fans
Overall, PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond is a game that is full of cuteness. The graphics are great and the in-game theme park presents a lot to see. The game is especially great for younger Pokemon fans, as the story is simple and the game is easy to play. However, older fans may find the game to be too easy and simple and will most likely get bored before finishing the game. Battles are not very exciting and the controls for 3D movement can be a bit clunky.
ESRB Rating: E for Everyone
