Despite the similarities between this and Breath of the Wild, I really enjoy this (where I disliked BotW).
I hit some issues that needed a restart a couple of times and it doesn't have the polish of a "real" PS5 game but I had a ton of fun playing this.
This is a lot of fun and feels like if the Pokémon catching gameplay had actually progressed it the last 20 years. I have some issues with it (no fast travel, a lot of loading screens, mission design seems messy) but overall I enjoyed it.
The story definitely didn't go where I expected it to.
This is a really solid platformer with a lot of variety. The music levels are a particular highlight.
This is a lot shorter than the first game but that works in it's favour: no more sneaking as MJ or doing dumb circuit board puzzles.
