Great Remake without ambition
A remake of pokemon Ruby that does mostly everything that a remake is out to do, the game feels quite a lot like the original while at the same time adding a few extra cool ideas.
Something very cool is that the game comes in a variety of languages, I'm using it as a excuse to practice my japanese. Very niche but I think worth mentioning.
As a pokemon game, its pretty fun. My main issue with it is that unlike previous remakes of older games, in total there's less features than the third version of the generation that it was based off. For example, the remake of the first games added complete new areas to explore with a new storyline and new pokemon.
The remake of the second generation of games added extra areas to the second half of the game and added a LOT of post game content on top of the exclusive stuff from the third game (crystal in this case).
This one builds on top of Pokemon Ruby, not on top of Emerald. Emerald had one of the best post-game in all of pokemon, but it was completed ommited from this version because "It was too hard". But nevertheless, still a fun game.
