It’s addictive, and I had a lot of fun playing it, but not enough fun relative to the number of hours I spent on it. The first few hours of the game are a mix of enjoyable and infuriating. Then Pokemon Quest gets very grindy, a fault which is compounded by bugs and a deficit of originality in mid- to late-game. Firaxis failed to expand upon the opportunities for interesting strategy and thoughtful play presented in Pokemon Quest — they just made some of the enemies much tougher or faster or more aggressive. The story, too, is mediocre at best. The gimmicks that were fun and novel in the first game are still present here, but no longer fun or novel. As a sequel to a truly excellent title, it lacks maturity.
I must say, the customization options for the soldiers are an improvement over the original and there’s a ton of Steam Workshop content available to enhance your experience
Liked what I COULD play of it, but in the first 76 minutes it crashed and made me restart my computer 4 times, even after adjusting everything to low settings. And yes, my rig is capable of handling this game and many others on the recommended settings, not just the minimum.

Running is initially very hard, even if you have seen someone do it before, even if you have ran in the past and need to learn to run again it is very hard. We simply have to accept that initially we are going to be horrible at it. Furthermore, there is a right way to run even though there appears to be many ways to do it. Those who refuse to run correctly suffer the consequences and it ruins their enjoyment of running and may even blame their frustration on the activity of running itself, while those who find the correct way to run find it incredibly enjoyable and even satisfying. Yes, you will make mistakes when you first start to run and will suffer severe consequences that you won’t easily forget but you will improve if you choose to learn. But you will never run perfectly all the time – that is simply a fact we all have to accept.
And that really sums up Pokemon Quest perfectly. It isn’t similar enough to the first game to allow someone familiar with the series to just wade in with gun blazing. it changes enough to almost become a whole new game in how you must approach it. it also has what can best be described as an inverse difficulty curve where you will find that failures happen more early on in the game than later. You’ll lose squaddie after squadie as you scrape through the early missions but by the mid-game your gear will be ensuring a better survival rate. In a way, it actually enhances the theme of the game given that you are playing the underdogs, but I can understand that some people just don’t like the idea of ‘losing’ so early in the game.
