    i had diamond before, but beat it, got bored and sold it. but now i downloaded the platinum rom which i can have more fun with (hacking, level 100 wilds and all that), but people make platinum sound bad. like is it worth playing if i beat diamond before? like the extra features? and do people say it sucks because its just d/p with dumbed up story (the intro) and the extras arent worth it? or what?

    If you are playing with Roms and not originals then go for Pokemon Platinum Enhanced Edition 1.5.

    A much improved game, enough differences over Diamond to make it worthwhile (whereas standard Platinum is just more Pokemon).

    I love that you can capture Pokemon that previously were only starters.

    I'm not a pokemon expert, but if you enjoyed Diamond, then you probably will enjoy Platinum especially with the extra area/island that they incorporated into Platinum

    Platinum itself has a better engine, mostly because it's faster than the D/P ones (and one of the things that made me pissed at D/P was the slowness/pauses in battles). It's also a little more narrative driven (although it's still Pokemon, so practically no storyline that's worth while) and has more Pokemon forms (Shaymin, Giratina, etc etc). I think it's better overall.

    Platinum.

    Why don't you just download both? It's a flashcart, right? It's not like you're purchasing the games.

    You don't like playing two of the same Gen. game at once?
    Easy enough. Finish one, then start another.
