Disclaimer: Beyond Level 1 is a review of a game starting from the checkpoint of defeating the first boss of a game. After all tutorial levels and battles shouldn't be counted in how a game is to give you what you deserve for a game but it is where the real battle begins as they can either fail you or help you get deeper into a game. Take this in mind though. This is just this reviewer's opinion and may not fall in line with the line of how you rate the game. After all, everyone has an opinion. Thank you. === Everybody wanna be a master, everybody wanna show their skill. Everybody wanna get there faster; make their way to the top of the hill. Pokémon’s Generation one was a hard thing to top. But then again somehow they managed to do this in a way no one can deny was a mark in the world. For many it was the peak of Pokémon, adding 100 new warriors to pick from just from scanning the grass, exploring caves, and more. Just be ready for some backtracking. Control – (GSC = Silver/HGSS = Gold) The compass directions are still in full swing and a lot easier to get some of your precious gear than ever. Battle controls are the same but now you got a number of other things to do. The Pokémon technical advancement this generation being your all in one of it being own phone (No… your Rattata isn’t in the 1% of them all.), your Radio (DJ Mary and Pokeflute Radio), and your map (Hopefully you won’t lose it while going in caves). You still get your Pokémon dictionary but it is at least more filling than the last one at least. And in a way, it was easier to control in a way. Though now you got the ability of not holding a button to run! Sure it is only for one gen, but still, it was great! Story – (GSC = Silver/HGSS = Silver) The story hasn’t changed too much but to recap. Several years after the hero of Kanto took the title of Champion time passed. We are now with a different hero that has arrived in town and asked by the local professor to gain something special from Mr. Pokémon. And no sooner did you get the special item that you have a disaster to get to from the professor. Afterwards, you are on your way to not only be a champion but try to clean up the mess of both your Rival who clearly grows during your adventures and a headless team rocket. Content – (GSC = Gold/HGSS = Gold) Puns unintended, the content here is plentiful and not locked by rare events for… almost all of the content in there. With over 100 Pokémon and now Breeding introduced, it is clear that getting the Pokedex full without having to trade a lot and even have starters be able to sire new mon is a big boon and allow for more to be done and even more complex battles. And in HGSS, the Frontier is a very fun place and very difficult in a sense with their different battle styles. And the big bust in favor of the originals is that you can still gamble in a sense and have some fun while the remixes are…flipping tiles. Flow – (GSC = Platinum/HGSS = Platinum) It’s still at your own pace and it allows you to grind, grow, and train for things. The story isn’t too complex and you can understand what is going on. If you are kind of lost, look at your badge collection and look for where the new badge is and try to obtain it or find out what is going on so you can get it. All of it is onto your pace at least and it’s good that you won’t get too lost for it all too. Bosses – (GSC = Gold/HGSS = Gold) Gym leaders are still the goal and they are mostly your typical one type, but get ready for a few delays in getting what you want. Mainly with 4 gals: Misty (on a date which I gotta flinch at when her date runs off when you show up), Whitney (To a soul named Silver August I’m sorry but she’s got a Miltank that is a pain in the * for many. And Insert your word where the asterisk is), Jasmine (Though I will give her deep credit since she was taking care of the ill), and Claire (who’d I’ve gotta give DOUBLE fury for how she is pissed you kicked her dragon tail). Otherwise nearly everyone you get to is a brawl to remember. And of course the big boss of the game that everyone is climbing to the hero of the past game. Though a thing about HGSS, they at least improved the teams of the gym leaders…though it’s in the rematches at least you can battle them for more exp. Overall – (GSC = Silver /HGSS = Gold) The hardest thing to do is to improve the game that launched fans all across the globe. This generation, generation 2, has proved that things can get better when developed in the right of ways. [-|-|-] And then the third Generation happened. Bring the parachutes and scuba gear, the dive into generation 3 will be a ride.
