If you loved “Pokémon Diamond” and “Pokémon Pearl,” then you might have been quite happy about the “Brilliant Diamond” remake that allows you to walk the same old hunting grounds as before. Unlike the previous games developed by Game Freak, the remake development was handed to a lesser-known study named ILCA, and they’ve surprisingly done a pretty good job of it. Even better, you can pick it up from Best Buy for only $29.99.
While Game Freak often tries to make remakes new and ambitious, ILCA went another route, creating a much more faithful recreation of the base game compared to other remakes of Pokémon. The main improvements are the graphics, with modern resolutions and quality upgrades, so you can enjoy “Brilliant Diamond” as if it’s a new game with the charm and enjoyment of the old.
