Short Game with lots of Nostalgia
I've been buying up old Nintendo 64 games to play and Pokemon Snap was probably the first to disappoint. It took me just under an hour to beat this game. However, I could see a new player(Adult) play for 2-3 hours trying to find all the different Pokemon and snapping the highest scoring pictures. The amount of Pokemon in the game is about 60+ I think. Half of them require special tricks/puzzles in order for the Pokemon to reveal themselves for glamorous photo ops. The photography game play is very unique and fun. Although, the scoring system favors front facing profile shots so you can't be 'artsy' with your photos. Compared to most Nintendo 64 games at the same price, This one is just too short. I'd only recommend buying this game if your a fan of Pokemon and old Nintendo games.

Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)
We bought this game on the recommendation of an adult cousin who's a photographer and proclaimed this to be the best N64 game he'd ever played. My 9-year old son is a huge Pokemon fan and had a great time with this game. The object of the game is to get the best photos of Pokemon during safaris that you take through different types of landscapes. There are puzzles and challenges to do during gameplay that keep it interesting. I must admit that it's engaging to try to get better and better photos and close-ups (the higher-quality the photo, the more points are earned). We wish the levels were a little longer. The camera control could also be a little smoother. Other than that, it's good fun.
PROS The idea of this game is for you to take pictures of the various Pokemon in their natural environments. You ride through in a little cart snapping pictures of Pokemon who pop up in a variety of places. You bring these pictures back to Professor Oak who will critique them. You receive points on the quality of your pictures. Your pictures should be centered, the character facing you and extra points given if they are involved in some funny animation. There is no violence in this game (well, I think a few birds tease Meowth and he passes out). The graphics are excellent, very colorful with lots of cute detailing. There are volcanoes that you will pass, that are overflowing with lava, caves with passages and streams that pass lots of interesting landscape. If you get close to the Pokemon, you can hear them “speak” at times. From the colorful artwork to the sound of the camera shutter, this game is very entertaining. CONS You can only have one person play at a time. You can not save multiple persons files.
A friend of mine had this game and I really liked playing it. So I finally bought myself one, as I did with Starfox 64 and Mario Kart 64. It's a pretty short game. You go to different locations to take pictures of Pokemon, to complete an area you need a picture of every Pokemon in that area but you get them all right away, as the game progresses, you get items that help you to lure certain Pokemon out, like the Apple, Smoke Ball, and Pokeflute. To get to these, you need a certain amount of Pokemon pictures taken, as well as opening new areas. And to get a couple new areas, you need to open a secret path from another area. After completing a certain amount, you have to find Pokemon 'signs', there's one in every area, doing so opens up the last level, where you can take pictures of Mew... its the only one there but it's hard to do, though you can just keep coming back. You ride in a vehicle that goes on land, water, and can fly, it goes automatically so you can focus on taking pictures. You can have only one of each Pokemon's picture to get the points on, but you can put pictures you like in your album to look at.
Short, but a Blast!
I played this when it first came out (I am 38 now). I can't help it-I like Pokemon, what can I say? The concept is very different, and it is easy for any age, really-but to be honest, getting maximum points for the best shots possible takes some skill! Especially when trying to catch pictures of Pokemon that zip by really fast! The only gripe I EVER had about the game was that it was a little on the short side, and like any game, it gets old after awhile, but if you haven't played it in a long time or have never played it, it's easy to spend hours on end taking pictures of Pokemon. I highly recommend it for any age, and I can certainly think of a hundred garbage titles for Nintendo 64 that are infinitely worse than this one.
