    Great product

    I love the Pokemon series. One of the things I hated was that I came in too late to play Ruby and Sapphire(I started in the next generation). When I heard that these games were coming out, I was psyched. When the games finally came out in November, I looked around at all the stores in the area and Best Buy had a great deal for it. Thank you Best Buy.

    Great Remake of a Classic

    I loved playing the original Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald; so getting this game was a great choice. Despite what critics say, the water is just fine.

    Faithful Remake to Ruby and Sapphire

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.

    Pokemon Omega Ruby is a faithful remake of the original Pokemon Ruby that came out in the early 2000's. It gives the Hoenn region a new coat of paint along with some good quality of life additions, however as with all newer Pokemon games, there is a lack of difficulty and post-game content. Honestly, you can't go wrong with any Pokemon game, however if you're a new player to the franchise, then going with the most recent installment will be your best option as it will have the most beginner friendly features and even more quality of life improvements. So whether it's for the sake of nostalgia, or you want a good starting point, or simply more Pokemon - Omega Ruby is a must buy

    Excellent Addition To The Series!

    Posted .

    Omega Ruby is excellent remake that truly stands out among the others in the franchise. With over 700 different Pokémon you won't get bored searching for new ones, but on top of that it gives old players of the originals a great sense of nostalgia and good memories. That's not to say that this game isn't for newcomers, because they will have just as much fun with this game than the nostallic players. Graphics: The 3D graphics look awesome on the 3DS, and everything from the Pokémon to the environments look great in the new edition. Gameplay: If you've played other Pokémon titles then you know what to expect. It's the same old fashion game, but of course with a polished update that makes the series feel fresh and entertaining. What's Different: Of course X & Y introduced Mega Evolve and this game is no exception to that new type of temporary Pokémon evolution. For players who didn't play the last games in the franchise just know all you have to do is find special stone to make your Pokémon do this special evolution. I don't remember if this was in the original, but in the 3DS remake you can actually sneak up on Pokémon you see hiding in the grass. Story: The story isn't the best, but then again the gameplay and catching Pokémon is what matters in a Pokémon game, and it more than excels at doing those two things very well. Bottom line is that Pokémon Omega Ruby is a must play for all fans of the series.

    The best way to play Pokemon, period

    |
    Posted .

    Though it still falls short of Black/White (fifth gen) in story and character quality and thus takes its place as my second favourite in the Pokemon series, ORAS (third gen remakes) are still objectively the best in the series. Third-gen has always had by far the best world/map in the series, being a well-designed, highly diverse, and very creative location in the form of Hoenn. Places visited include a desert, a treehouse town, an indoor city, a town inside of a dormant volcano, island chains, underwater, a town built to float upon the sea, a volcano town featuring hot springs and raining soot, and more! Upon the wonderful foundation of the amazing third gen Pokemon games is a set of improvements. The most obvious is that it takes the best new aspects of the disappointing X/Y (sixth gen) Pokemon games, most notably the 3D graphics engine. These improvements are merely applied to a much better game in this case. Meanwhile, new additions like sneaking up on Pokemon in grass make for a much more interesting addition to the series mechanically, as well as for a world that feels more "alive" than ever before. If you have ever liked Pokemon or have even the slightest inclination towards playing this, choose Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire.

    As someone who is a diehard fan of the original Pokemon games (I only like the basic 150!), this game actually is a great step forward. Simple enough to maintain the formula I know and love, but plenty of upgrades and new touches that make it worth the price of admission. Plus, the graphics and animation over the original Pokemon Ruby game are top-notch. If you're a day one fan like me, or looking for a gift for someone else, I highly recommend this or Alpha Sapphire; both are excellent games.

    More than just a second playthrough

    |
    Posted .

    I'll try to avoid spoilers as much as possible in this review... somewhat hard to with the extras that are included. First thing... it is a Pokemon game. They've been making them for long enough that most people know what they are signing up for. A "kids game" that has some excellent RPG elements to it. Gotta Catch em All. Weaken your opponent, POKEBALL GO! Second thing, it gives you the complete Ruby/Sapphire experience. Full game, second playthrough. If you liked it 12 years ago, you'll appreciate experiencing it in 3D with the updated character models, and mega evolutions of some of your favorite pokemon. The real reason I gave this 5 stars is the additional content they added. Without spoiling too much, I will say that you can get EVERYTHING you got in original Ruby/Sapphire... and they add some additional content in the Delta Episode (you'll know it when you get to it).

    Great remake of an old Gameboy Advance title

    |
    Posted .

    Pokemon has evolved a lot since Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire first released years ago. Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire managed to keep in tact the mechanics that has made the past games great while including all 700+ Pokemon out now, not just the 387 that were in the original Ruby and Sapphire versions. They also added in the Global Trade Center so you can trade with anyone at any time from anywhere in the world! And the nice thing about these games is anyone can start playing at any time, it'll be great for long time players and new alike. And Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are very similar to one another, with minor story differences and different Pokemon you can encounter in game makes both games worth picking up.

    Fun to play with. This game is just AMAZING! I am not a gamer taking my time and talking to every person in the game, I finished the game in about 10 days on top of other things. I really like how you can re-battle previously fought trainers as many times as you want. I'm especially glad that the game doesn't have roller blades in it because that kind of ruined pokemon x and y for me. The graphics are amazing and the sound quality is great. Also, after defeating the elite four, there is an additional delta episode featuring the legendary pokemon rayquaza. I'm not really big on reviews but I just want to say one last time that this was the most anticipated game for me this year, and I think Nintendo has done an amazing job creating such a great game. Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is such an awesome experience and is perfect for all ages.

    The return to Hoenn is so much better

    |
    Posted .

    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes of the original Ruby and Sapphire games that released on the Game Boy Advance back in 2003. Now these games have come back with 3D style battles taken from the X and Y games, more vibrant world, and much more than the original games ever had. If you never played the originals before, get these and see why they were so loved back in 2003, and experience it in an even better way.

    Another Excellent Pokemon Entry

    |
    Posted .

    In my humble opinion this is yet another great introduction to the Pokemon series. Having never played the original 3rd Generation games this is the first time I'm experiencing this region and the 3DS does a wonderful job at capturing the feel of the world. I'm enjoying the ability to "find" hidden Pokemon in tall grass and see if they have a special move or particularly high IV's already. I suppose my only gripe thus far is that I've just gotten through Mauville City and I'm not entirely certain where to go next, but the idea of exploring the world a bit until I figure it out isn't really a negative.

    My first Pokemon game since Yellow

    |
    Posted .

    I haven't played a Pokemon game since Yellow originally came out. Then I got the impulse to play one when Pokemon Go made it all-around socially acceptable. I was afraid this game would have too many features and would drown a rusty RPG player like myself. Quite the opposite. It introduces features slowly, but surely, and I don't feel like I'm neglecting any of those features after about 15 hours of game time. Overall, this game is a blast and the visuals are fantastic for such a portable game. I can't wait to finish this and play the next one.

    Fun, nostalgic, classic.

    This game is everything you would expect for the next generation of Pokemon. The combat is strategic and yet still fun at the same time, just what we expect from the series. The world is interesting and colorful. The new Pokemon to collect are creative and intriguing. If you are a Pokemon fan this game is a must have. I had no problem pouring 80 hours of my life into it.

    Loved it on Game Boy Advance

    Posted .

    One of my favorite games on Game Boy Advance remade for the Nintendo 3DS. It's a lot of fun. I do wish the character models were more like the ones in Pokemon Sun and Moon, but this game was made before Sun and Moon were released and follow the same similar designs as Pokemon X and Y. That being said, it's a fun game and I really think everyone should check it out.

    This is a must have for pokemon fans. This pokemon game is a remake from the Ruby game made years ago on Game Boy Advance. Whether your stepping into Hoenn for the first time in 11 years or the first time ever you'll enjoy it. This is one of the best games on the 3DS.
