The Pokemon craze has seen its rise in America ever since the beginning of 1998. The original Gameboy games started this craze...but why?
Pokemon Red presents a simple concept: train monsters to fight in battles that will bring you fame and glory. However, Pokemon presents this in a very fun, energetic way. Throughout the game, you fight other monsters with your Pokemon partners to fight gym leaders and enter a huge tournament, the Pokemon League.
The graphics are great for an original Gameboy game, but comparing them to newer games, you may be a little turned off. The sound is the same way, at the time, it was great, but now, it isn't the best stuff out there. If you appreciate classics, you'll be able to handle it.
The Pokemon games are fun and imaginative. It's highly recommended to kids and adults alike, anyone who's willing to give imagination and fun a chance.
