Pokémon Conquest | Nintendo DS Game Review
Item Reviewed: Pokémon Conquest DS Game
In Pokémon Conquest, players take on the role of a young Warlord who is linked with a Pokémon. Together, they must set out to recruit Warrior allies to strengthen their growing kingdom. Along their journey, players will encounter a variety of Pokémon, as well as Warriors and Warlords inspired by the Japanese feudal era. The game contains nearly 200 Pokémon, including many from the recent Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games, which have sold more than 4 million copies combined in the United States.
As the battlefield unfolds in Pokémon Conquest, players must choose the correct Pokémon type to inflict maximum damage on their opponents. In the turn-based skirmishes, players choose different tactics for intense six-on-six battles, and battle conditions can change on every turn, keeping players on their toes in anticipation of what will happen next.
I do not think I have put this game down since it arrived. I am not usually into strategy type games, I will play them but have never been good at them, until now. Pokémon Conquest has been so much fun to play! I love building up my army, linking with other Pokémon, and doling out responsibilities to others in the castles I have taken over and taken. However, it doesn’t always go as smoothly as planned and I sit in shock after watching one of my strongest Pokémon be wiped off the map. I really can’t pinpoint why this particular game has captured my interest other than the fact that I have enjoyed the Pokémon franchise for a really long time. My daughter has asked if she can play it when I am done and she is excited that she will have it on our upcoming trip to play. Definitely a FUN addition to the franchise and I highly recommend it to everyone! Will hit store shelves on June 18th.
