Forward: I’ll be changing the format of this review slightly because I couldn’t phrase is any other way. This review is also very long, one of the longest I've written so far.
Ah fan games, a small portion of the gaming community that is more often than not shunned. Fan games are exactly what the term sounds like, their unofficial games based on franchises made by fans of said franchise. I’ve played a few fan games over the years, mostly Sonic games which have been, more often than not, quite good. However I haven’t had a lot of luck with Pokémon fan games. While I have played a few, the ones I remember are Pokémon Quartz version, which I barely got into, Pokémon Platnium for the Gameboy Advance, where I found a game breaking bug that meant I stopped playing it, a few rom hacks like Blaze Black (which I recommend if you want that harder challenge) and Snakewood (a rom hack of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald where Hoenn is infested with zombies...not as good as it sounds, trust me) and recently, Pokémon Zeta (alternate version being Pokémon
Unicron Omnicron), which
as you know, is the subject of this review. I will openly say that I haven’t
finished the game, and I do acknowledge that some of the points brought up in
this review could be a result of the development software used, RPG Maker. The
game itself is also in “Open Beta” so there is a strong chance these issues
could be resolved in the future. For the
purpose of this review, I played the Open Beta 1.4.9 and I will be bringing up
comparisons to the main series due to the nature of this game being a fan game.
