Editors' Review

Pokemon Go is a fun augmented-reality game that gets you out of the house to hunt for Pokemon in the real world (the app relies on your phone's camera and GPS). Your task is to capture and evolve these creatures, and then train them to become fierce fighters, capable of aiding you in your ultimate quest -- to overtake and reign supreme over neighboring Pokemon Gyms.

Pros

Informative intro: Even if you've never heard of Pokemon, Pokemon Go provides a great explainer upon launch to get you up to speed on your mission.

Customizable avatar: Before you head out into the world, you can customize your avatar's gender, skin tone, hair and eye color, and clothing and backpack style. You're also able to name them.

Easy control gestures: Move your body to get your avatar to nearby Pokemon, the next PokeStop (which offers Poke Balls, potions, and eggs), or Gym.

Keeps you active: Unlike some mobile games that leave you on the sofa all day, Pokemon Go encourages you to walk or run around your area and explore new places. The more you exercise, the more creatures you capture and the more powerful your existing creatures become.

Cons

Slowdowns and crashes: Because of Pokemon Go's popularity, we kept experiencing stalls and even got kicked out of the game repeatedly. We saw the message "Our servers are experiencing issues. Please come back later" way too many times.

Bottom Line

Pokemon Go is a fun, action-packed game that keeps you active.
