One of the most original games of the year but way too short.
1 November 1999 | by (Pokemon Island) – See all my reviews

As I said up there this is one of the most original game of the year. Who thought a photography video game could be so much fun. And it is. There are just 2 problems. 1. The game was just way too short. It definately wasn't easy and there are still some pokemon I hadn't got on film but I made it too the last level so easily and beat it with a little difficulty. 2. I would have liked the game to allow you to shoot every pokemon. Like Aerodactyl, Scyther and Raichu. They weren't even in this game. Any way this is a great game for those of you who would like to try something different.
