Okaaaay. So, someone on IGN has reviewed Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha SAPHIRE, and gave it a 7.8. Now, this is not a bad score, mind you, but the confusing part is WHY the score was given. The main negative points of OR/AS were that the game had too much water, and there were too many HMs....what?
Too much water? The Hoenn region was intentionally designed that way. :/ is it tedious to get through? Somewhat. Is it really that bad? Since the Fly HM is still there, not really.
And too many HMs? I never really had that problem in the original. Always had a team member to use as an HM slave while Surf, Waterfall, and Strength were rather decent moves.
Now, I have yet to play these games, so maybe these are some rather notable issues. Guess we'll just have to wait until it comes out to find out.
