Pretty much.

I'm genuinely surprised that their reviews are on Metacritic.

I mean... What else are they going to give it? I’m aware most Nintendo games are of very high quality, but ever since their whole crusade, from a couple years, of deciding who gets to talk about and play their games online, it’s very questionable whether there is an underlying agenda there from most big name gaming outlets.

Go look up some of NL's reviews of other first party Nintendo games (just about anything on the Wii U from 2016 for starters) and you all will see how wrong you are.

"Oh my gawd, a site with Nintendo in the name gives a game series that always scores well everywhere a 10/10, clearly it's biased even though I know nothing of how it reviews other games!"

Ultra sun/moon is basically your S/M review plus .2-.5

 

I enjoyed the games, but once again it's clear the 3ds hardware limited them from truly unleashing this gen's potential. It's good, yet leaves you desiring for the game to have more. 

 

Haven't tried online yet (don't want to be banned), but overall almost everything else is fine. My personal score is about 8.2/10. A 10/10 is way too much for this game honestly. 

monocle_layton, like always, continues to be the voice of reason in a jungle of baseless shouts and uneducated screams.

Well, I did play the game, so in all honesty I think my review is pretty fair. It isn't bashing Nintendo for things they can't control (like the graphics) and takes into consideration that it's a sequel

I figure Ultra Sun/Moon are also good games, but seeing as I already have the original, I'll probably pass on these versions.

I got it since a forum I browse leaked it. Won't share for obvious reasons, but personally I wouldn't have bought it. Throughout the game I felt like it was a change not large enough to justify buying it. I haven't touched the post game though, so I can't comment on that.
