I skipped the original third generation of Pokemon when I was a kid, so when Alpha Sapphire released, I was excited to jump into Hoenn for the first time. However, that first adventure wasn’t as thrilling as the fanbase led it to be. Alpha Sapphire feels like an average Pokemon title; that is, it’s a good game, but by series standards, it’s a bit on the boring side. I can’t name anything offensively bad about the remake, given it has Sun and Moon’s solid mechanics, but Alpha Sapphire is just… a game. There’s not much else to say about it.
