Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor review: a solid if predictable expansion

Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor review: a solid if predictable expansion

Pokemon Sword and Shield’s first expansion isn’t earth-shattering, but it continues to define the series’ future.

Back when Pokemon Sword and Shield first released last November, it’s fair to say I felt a pang of disappointment. That disappointment was no doubt in part thanks to the fact that I’d been dreaming of what a full console-based 3D Pokemon title would look like since roughly 1999, around two or three hours after I first started playing Pokemon Blue.

It perhaps wasn’t surprising that Pokemon Sword and Shield didn’t live up to that – but it also had a list of issues I stand by, such as a criticism of the game’s generally static-looking state in battle, especially in light of the game cutting back on the number of included Pokemon to theoretically allow for a greater degree of detail.
