IGN recently had an opportunity to take a closer look at Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in a hands-off demo. Here's why we're excited for the way that it mixes old and new concept from the series.

No, we have not been missing a lazy attempt at a remake with worse looking graphics than the originals, MIDI tracks, less postgame, and more restrictive, mindnumbingly easy gameplay.

Fans bitched for so long about pokemon not changing enough, and rightfully so. Then Nintendo starts to change the series drastically but in completely the wrong direction and watered the series down to the point of being mindlessly easy and simple. Now it's "refreshing" to people that they're taking it back to its roots with these remakes, but it shouldn't be. Have people forgotten how frustrating it was in gen 5 that every new gen was so similar to the last? We shouldn't congratulate this series for failing to evolve and then just falling back on what worked before. I'm so disappointed

Lazy reorchestrating MIDI tracks for music, EXP share on from start, boring secret base decorations, and underwhelming battle animations. Hard pass from someone who has played every game since Red and Blue. I’ll stick to Showdown.

Single-use TM's and forced EXP. Share are easily enough to stop me from spending the money... Not even worth the 15 minutes to code the options into the game to make them optional difficulty settings. Such stubborn designers over at Nintendo, it's like they don't want the game to overshadow their other ones.

What really kills it for me is the music. It's something the series has really expanded on over the years. Seeing that they opted for midi reworks of the originals instead of new remixes or orchestrations is a real shame.

Hopefully they will have both the midi version and orchestral version of the soundtracks and let's you choose one like DQXI. Even HGSS had similar features.

In the other trailers the music seems much more orchestral in towns and shopa which makes my think that’s it’s either just the battle themes are midi-like or they’re just placeholders.

This has to be one if the laziest and phoned in remakes I've ever seen, and Nintendo should be ashamed of themselves for allowing Game freak to release these for full price. The fact that Pokemon aren't even in the overworld map, but they can make this a feature in the underground is just baffling!!! Absolutely 100% disappointing "effort" here. Fans of the series could've done a better job than this...
