If I want to be kind I would call the graphics dissapoint, at the moment it feels they did the bare minimum for the Graphics/Story/New gameplay elements.
Weird thing is I want it to succeed so they build on it and make a big open world game with plenty villages and towns with a ton of exploration side quests.
I am curious about its reception on the release it seems to be one of those games that could bore a gamer after 10 gamers or be addicting like hell.
If it succeeds they won't improve the formula but will regurgitate the same game years over years instead.
We're not talking about any other Nintendo studio here, it's the useless, lazy and uncopetent gamefreak that we're talking about.
I have no trust in them nor in the company that rules them. I am fully convinced about the fact that nintendo should take full part in developing pokémon games and have full control on them since the pokémon co. gives no f*ck about the console games anymore.
It still doesn't make sense that they are taking THAT much time to adapt to HD. it's amazingly bad how they're still struggling with 3D and HD in 2021.
Sword and shield looked like an HD remaster of a 3DS game (if not worse), and since that game, we've seen so little improvement.
It still doesn't make any sense that the most lucrative franchise in the world can't finance the development of a proper game to look at least better than indies. And that's extremely ridiculous.
I hate gamefreak as much as i hate EA in the industry. They're doing with Pokémon what EA is doing with their sports games.
