Pokemon Colosseum is a love it or hate it game. Of course that really depends on how you approach it. If you were expecting all the features that stadium series had then I assume this game greatly disappointed you. Hey I knew what I got before it came out so I am not on that side of the argument. Pros: The story mode had a fresh feel to it, The Colosseum matches put up a much better fight than the stadium series, Pokecoupons to buy items for your games are a good replay value, bonus disc for those who pre-ordered it, Nice music. Cons: Why do they replay so many of those battle tracks again and again? The Story mode can get repetitive and tedious at times, If you didn't have a GBA link cable a GBA and a Pokemon handheld game then why did you buy this?
