GameSir G4s Review on PokÉMon Firered / Leafgreen: Magically Addictive Gameplay

Since the original Pokémon Red and Blue games released in Game Boy in 1999, Nintendo's pocket monster franchise has been hugely successful ever since. Large amount of series were given birth successively. Pokémon FireRed / LeafGreen are one of them.


Fans of the original games will feel similar through the game. However, both new and long-time Pokémon players will find in FireRed / LeafGreen a lengthy and involving role-playing adventure. Gameplay keeps almost the same as previous versions, but it is still magically addictive. And the inclusion of a wireless adapter with every copy of FireRed / LeafGreen makes Pokémon's popular multiplayer element more accessible than ever.

  • Gameplay

The world of Pokémon is a cute, kid-friendly. It is abundant with hundreds of various Pokémon (creatures), which are inspired from real animals and are equipped with traits and abilities. Your task is to capture these cuties out in the wild and then duel them against other trainers and their creatures.

As their master, you can have up to six different Pokémon with you at a time. They need to engage in battles with other randomly-met creatures to gain experience points. As their levels go up, so do their new abilities, strengths, and maturity. In role-playing games like this, raising the level is time-honored, as it attracts you to build up different creatures and their levels on and on. You may get into some struggles as there are different combinations of Pokémon and abilities on them for you to choose.

  • Control

Pokémon FireRed / LeafGreen stands as a solid portable role-playing experience. Simple like all GBA games, just by pressing the "A" and left / right button, you'll like playing this game. Also it is gamepad compatible. I am playing it in Happy Chick Emulator with a GameSir G4s, without which all buttons would float on the game interface, hiding some views and gaming fun is decreased. And playing with the gamepad makes it perfect to full enjoy the game as it can be much clearer.

The turn-based nature of the game makes it perfect to play on the go, and whenever you load a saved game, there's a brief black-and-white sequence recounting your most recent accomplishments. What's else, Pokémon FireRed / LeafGreen will give you adequate information about your creature collection and all your Pokémon, which I think is better than previous Pokémon games.

  • Conclusion

Though Pokémon could probably use a few new twists after all these years, FireRed / LeafGreen are great role-playing games on their own merits, filled with much content as well as challenges. Representing additive gameplay throughout the game, it unfolds endless fun for all fans and players.
