This one caught me off-guard. I think you'll get a kick out of it.

Good review Critic but I think a B+ is way too high. I’d give it a C at best. I found the controls lacking.

I'm so glad you reviewed this! I remember the controversy it caused when it first came out, since it uses the actual Pokemon Go servers when you bring it up on your in-game phone. Nintendo thought being able to "travel" in a video game to collect Pokemon defeated the purpose of their game. I'm glad the court threw the case out, because I never would have been able to collect Charizard otherwise, living in the boonies like I do.

Word is someone made a mod for the game where you can "jailbreak" the in-game phone to install third-party software such as emulators...I saw a youtube video some time back of a guy playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on the phone in the game while driving, controlling the game with bongo controllers! I think Nintendo took the video down for copyright infringement because I can't seem to find it anymore.

Somebody sent me an email saying that this game was pulled from the Playstation Store due to "public health concerns".
Can anyone verify??

There's something very strange going on here... you broke your download-only boycott to review this game, but you never brought up the local multiplayer? It's subtle, but if I didn't know better, I'd say you were trying to undermine your own principles - oh, wait, I don't know better! How much were you paid to write this? How many reviews were part of the deal?

Very disappointing. I thought that you had integrity. I'm going to miss following this site.

The "public health concerns" reason they are giving is bogus. It turns out the game uses your actual Facebook account, and there are some serious privacy concerns. Some unknown organizations may gain access to your driving records.

You may to adjust your privacy settings, or even delete your account.

Stalvern, just because the Critic liked this game doesn’t mean you have to fly off the handle. You and I have gotten into it over this game in other forums, and even though I think it’s an average game at best, the Critic says B+ and he is entitled to his own opinion.
