Pokemon Snap

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Mike Monopoli Pokemon Snap was Nintendo's first effort to push the Pokemon franchise to the N64. Despite Pokemon's popularity, this game really wasn't what Nintendo claimed it was going to be in their reviews.

The sound effects are fairly decent, like you would expect form any Pokemon game. If a 'pester ball' is thrown, it makes a whistling sound. The Pokemon themselves make the same noises as they do on the television show, with Pikachu saying "Pikaaaa", etc. The music, on the other hand, is rather basic. It is no more than a bunch of MIDI songs thrown in, resembling the music from Super Mario 64.

The Pokemon themselves were beautifully animated, not missing a single detail. Each character had it's own movement, each flowing smoothly, with bright colorful colors. The environment was a bit basic though. Again, much resemblance of Mario 64 came about, with the grass that looked like blocks, and the ground created with angular polygons.

Game Challenge: 3 out of 10

This is where Pokemon Snap really takes a dive. There is absolutely no challenge what so ever in this game. When you end a level, you go on the the next, regardless of how poorly you did. Even though this game was directed for younger audiences, it was still to easy for them. All the controls were was point and click, with the occasional throwing of an object of playing of the pokeflute.

Game Play-Fun: 2 out of 10

No excitement what so ever in the game. There isn't any challenge, even if you try to look for all 39 Pokemon, it still isn't as rewarding as beating a game like Majora's Mask.


You will get bored of this game in a week tops

Replayability: 1 out of 10

Once you've beaten this game, it's done. You really won't get too motivated to find all the Pokemon again, seeing as there are only 39, and they all appear in the same place, the only thing I found fun in replayability was to throw objects all the Pokemon.

Game Value: 5 out of 10

For a younger person, they may enjoy this game, but for anybody 8 and up, don't waste your time.

Overall: 3 out of 10

This game really was a failure by Nintendo to introduce Pokemon to the Nintendo 64. Snap only featured 39 of the 151 Pokemon, and they were all the generic ones you see everywhere else. This is not a game worth getting unless you are a true Pokemon fanatic.
