    I'm able to pick up Pokemon rumble blast for £19.99, thanks to the price cut. So for those of you that have actually played it in hand, would you say it's a decent purchase? Give me your opinion guys. :)

    Yes, It stays in my 3DS, when I don't play mario kart 7. Plus, it's great on-the-go and to spend time. The story is cute as well.

    If you liked the Wii version, sure, why not.
    Do note that it'll feel like you're playing the same game. Just with new characters and another... world.
    Most of the music has just been taken from the Wii game, so yeah... Also no online mode.
    I like it, I play it pretty often, and for that price... it might just be worth getting.

    It is a pretty decent game really. The only downside is that there is no online mode :(
    And for that price, go for it man!

    No, don't get it. I'm writing reviews for a professional website.(Some Dutch website, I won't advertise! I'm Langin Strife over there.)

    Right, if you have a Wii then try the Wiiware version.(Just download the wad.) And if you like it get it!

    But note:

    • It gets repetitive fast
    • Music is copy pasted from the old version
    • It is not optimal used(The 3DS, Streetpass only. weak 3D effect)

    But go and try it somewhere.

    It's not a bad game, but it definitely should have been eShop for $10-$15 instead of a full retail title. Sure it has more content than the WiiWare version, but the WiiWare version was woefully light on content(IIRC, it only had 1st and 4th gen pokemon, and very little variety in levels).

    Nah the 3D is not amazing for a 3DS game. Zelda is better, mario 3D Land and kart are better.

    the story is kinda average but idk the battles are pretty fun, not too tedious, traits + legendaries mix it up a bit too :)

    In all honestly, I expect that the game will be even cheaper soon. So I'd say wait.

    It concerns me that people are starting to judge games by how good they are in 3D.
    That's even worse than graphics whoring.

    Get it. I'm writing a review for a professional website and my opinion matters most.

    I'm waiting for it to hit sub-£15, shouldn't be too long now with the January sales incoming.

    There are plenty of reviews that say it's garbage, but I enjoy the mindless fun it provides (good for downtime from Skyrim).

    I'll think wait for it to hit £15 or less, a lot of mix opinions here. :/

    I got it for Christmas and have been playing it for at least an hour, and have enjoyed it so far.
    It's a pretty straight forward romp really, more or less just like the WiiWare demo I played, it's enjoyable sure but nothing special.
    Is it worth getting if you love pokémon? Probably, it has things going for it, but it isn't worth £35 like they started charging to begin with, they've already knocked it down considerably at Gamestation.
