Before I begin, there was a topic on this, but it was so old and I'm pretty sure if I had bumped it, it would have been split into a new topic anyways, so...

 

Since My Nintendo had that 20% off deal for the first PokéPark game and I had some extra eShop cash to use on Wii U, I bought the "Virtual Console" version of the game.  Several years ago I was kinda put off due to the reviews, but since now the game is way cheaper, I decided to get the game.  It's like if they expanded the ol' Pokémon Stadium mini-games and tied in an adventure game into it.  I've only just started and the game so far is too cute for words.  Sure it may be easy and the controls could have been done better (seriously, no nunchuk support for running/dashing?).

 

The story goes one day Mew seeks out Pikachu and its friends and teleports them to the PokePark.  Apparently a sacred crystal was shattered somehow and Pikachu and crew are tasked to recover all of the shards by way of adventuring and mini-game playing.  If Pikachu doesn't recover all the shards, the PokéPark will get destroyed.  Anyways I'll continue playing off and on and maybe look for a copy of the second game.  The second game seems to have been way better to many of the players.

 

If you're wondering about the Pokémon themselves, the first PokéPark was released during Generation 4, so Pokémon from Unova and onward didn't exist yet.  The second game came out in Generation 5 and added some Unova Pokémon to the roster.  I'm lucky to have a capture card, so if I take any more pictures, I'll post them.  And if there's anything that could make for a good video, I could record something for YouTube (unfortunately I do not record any story-related things for any game that has a story in it).

So I've been working through the game and made it to Lava Zone.  I think when I'm finished with my business here, I'll be past halfway in-game and can start working toward the finale.

 

The following pictures may contain spoilers (in which case I'll link to the pictures instead of posting them outright):

I played around with the in-game screenshot tool.  I forgot that utilizing in-game screenshot tools won't give high-rez stuff on Wii, but it would have been a hassle trying to juggle my controller and using Elgato's screenshot tool.

So I beat the game last night.  All-in-all, it's a cute game, but nothing you'd want to pay over 20 bucks for.  I agree with the general consensus that the controls are a little clumsy, the game is a bit too easy (yes I know who this game is marketed towards), and the game can get a little repetitive inbetween the main mini-games.  I'll see about finding a copy of the second game somewhere.

 

Anyways onto the pictures!  Anything spoilery will be only linked to and not posted outright as images:

 

To go off the pic edited into my last post:  http://ngamer01.choz.../files/0012.png

 

The Haunted House looks and sounds as it should, but with it being a kid's game, nothing is really super scary due to the Pokémon forced to be tame here (ie no jump scares and stuff).

 

I mean what's scary with this?:  http://ngamer01.choz.../files/0014.JPG

I've got a gameplay from Arcade Mode if anyone is interested.  It has spoilers from the main game though.

 

Spoiler

 

I don't know if I'll 100% the game as the final percents require you to play each main mini-game with all possible Pokemon and attain every main mini-game bonus with every playable Pokemon.

Ok, I retrieved my last three photos from the game.  I guess this is it as 100%ing the game is tedious and I'm not wanting to do that.

Riolu is training to evolve into Lucario one day.  The first step is learning Aura Sphere.

...Makes me wish there was a Pokemon Snap 2.  I could take photos all day if there were enough possibilities!
