Lately, I've been thinking about buying Pokémon Ranger. I've read a couple of reviews about it, and it seems good to me, but I guess I can get a better picture here. So, is Ranger worth buying or not? Does it have some major flaws or something that makes it a super great game?

I liked MD Blue a lot and I don't really mind some repetitive gameplay, mut too much is always too much. I don't expect it to be a masterpiece anyway, since not a lot has been heard from it, but I think I still want it... Help me!

Well, I did play it, it was a good game, but not really THAT good..
Personally, I found it had a rather short story.
And my toouvh screen became scratched because of it!

The only real reason I got Pokemon Ranger was for Manaphy. It's an ok game but you put it down the first time you beat it. But I would just wait for Shadows of Almia to come out instead of buying the first game. You get Darkrai, Manaphy, and Aura Sphere Riolu in that game.

Agreed.
Why get an older version when the new one is not that far away?

I thought pokemon ranger was an O.K game for the time i played it, but it got a bit boring.
You should buy it only if you like making circles, and to get manaphy, but thats basically it.
it gets really annoying with some pokemon because they are so hard to catch, but it was fun while it lasted.
the sidequests were really boring though, it isn't that fun looking for skitty(plural).

Oh, there's a new one coming? I didn't know that... I think I'll rather get Shadows of Almia then, or at least wait until it's out. I did get the old Mystery Dungeon, though, when the new ones were only a couple of days away, but I've still been happy with it (it was a LOT cheaper that way, seriously).

the bitter end.

It's not bad, not as good as PMD(2) but it's not a bad game like Trozei (Yes Trozei sucked), if you can find it for a relatively low price than I suggest buying it.

Aww, but you don't get Plusle of Minun as your starter in Shadows of Almia :( That almost makes me reconcider which one I should get...

Yeah.. Trozei did suck.

PMD > Ranger > Trozei

the bitter end.

Yeah.. Trozei did suck.

PMD > Ranger > Trozei

So true, so true, oh and Shadows of Almina isn't that bad, though Plusle and Minun not being starters is a setback.

Pokemon rangers was an ok game. 5.6/10 ! being lowest. The game as DeathlyHollows said was short, and it wasn't to exiting. There was too much talking. Why don't you just download it for free? i did that.

I personally thought it was a good game kind of challengeing but fun. Also you get a manaphy egg out of it!

I love Pokemon Ranger. I don't personally own the game but I have friends who do. I find that it's a great twist on the Pokemon world, and circling things like crazy it really addictive. I also like the puzzle elements attached to each Pokemon, making for some puzzlework to spice the game up even more.

I loved Pokemon Ranger. I spent so long playing it and I enjoyed every minute of it. It is quite short as others have mentioned.If you do plan on playing it, please get a screen protector so your DS won't be tortured. ;O

I enjoyed it, it was really fun. Except the very last battle of the game, not going to say anything because of spoilers but ARGH! That was the first time I've ever been so frustrated by a Pokemon game that I could have thrown my DS at the wall. XD
