Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia feels like an expansion to the previous game. Its graphics and audio haven't changed, still immersing the player in a bland Pokemon universe. The gameplay is pretty much the same, as you use your stylus to draw a beam around rogue Pokemon to capture them, while powering up your device by doing favors for townsfolk. Downloadable missions are available through the Wi-Fi Connection, but surprise, they work the same as before. For fans of the franchise or those trying Ranger for the first time, this is decent Poke-fun, but we needed something different to justify spending another $35.
