Pokemon Sword/Shield scores a 9 at GameSpot

Recommended Posts

Sitting at 80 on Metacritic with mixed reviews but scoring high at most of the major outlets.

 

9.0 GameSpot
9.3 IGN
9.1 GamePro
8.8 GameInforer

 

Eurogamer thinks it's "hollow" and didn't like it. USgamer thought it was too predictable. 

 

The main criticisms seem to be that there are almost no dungeons and the ones it does have are short, and the towns are empty Potemkin villages.

IGN calls it a series best and GS says it’s the best new generation in years. This will be serious fun to play with my kids once we finish Let’s Go Pikachu. :juggle:

I was leaning towards getting this to play over the holidays but now I'm thinking maybe I'll get FE Three Houses even though I played FE Echoes last holiday season. First world problems.  :down:

As if Nintendo needs help to sell Pokémon games :drake:

not saying they do, but since its one of the top franchises in the world I dont see why they wouldnt want to make sure their reputation is clean when it comes to the biggest review sites.
