^ This is exactly why I'm staying away from it. It's just a Candy Crush clone that'll encourage unoriginal, uninspired freemium games instead of something that's actually both fun and engaging story-wise. I'd only change my mind if there were some story behind it.Okay, so I lied about how I was never going to play this game. I downloaded it out of boredom, curiosity, and for some personal experience so I could bash the game with substantial accusations if I needed to.
The game itself is alright. Nothing about it is good or bad enough to really set me off. Gameplay functions like it's supposed to, the noises are pleasant, blah blah blah... the thing that irks me about this game is that (especially compared to the spin-offs of Gen IV) there's almost nothing to this game at all. Play level, clear level, wait for 2 hours to rinse and repeat. It brings absolutely nothing to the world of Pokemon; no new ways to see them, interact with them, or anything else. This game could be exactly the same if the got rid of the chibified heads.
Granted, that's the sort of game Shuffle is, and I was never expecting it to come anywhere close to or contribute as much as the other great spinoff series that have come before it. Still, it disappoints me that this is what the franchise is satisfied with, and it bothers me that this will probably produce more and more ames of this nature... and less games like PMD or Ranger.
