Unless you played through both Sun and Moon extensively and have already collected every Legendary Pokemon, it's easy to recommend to any Pokemon fan.

If you skipped Sun and Moon last year, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are must-buys. Sci-fi storytelling, plenty of new content and adorable critters all included, but feels too soon a release to make the most of the innovation.

The best Pokémon game ever just got slightly better, with an even more expansive endgame and some welcome, if trivial, new tweaks and additions.

You won't find much incentive to return to Alola if you enjoyed your original trip, but if you skipped Sun and Moon's 2016 release and want to play a new Pokémon game, this is your best bet

Though they aren't very different from their predecessors, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon make enough changes to stand apart as the definitive version of the seventh generation games.

I can't say Pokémon Ultra Sun is a must-play for fans, but it won't be leaving my 3DS anytime soon.

If you haven't played Sun and Moon, or any entry in the series in a while, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is a great place to pick up the series again.

I already got my fill of Pokemon Sun & Moon, as you can clearly see from my completed 'dex, but that didn't stop me from reliving it all over again with Ultra. Just keep in mind that if you're hoping that the entire "leveling process" is going to be different this time, and that you'll be entering a completely brave, new world -- you're going to be disappointed.

Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon is the defenitive return to Alola. Much more content, new experiences and feelings that are going to be perfect for the fans of the Pokemon games.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon surpassed my expectations. There were things overly familiar in more ways than one, but it's not fully covering old ground. Plenty of new features and details will make fans of the franchise very happy and while I still mourn for the DexNav to this day, the new content is well worth becoming Alolan Champion once more.

Bigger, better and refined, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are the definitive versions of Sun and Moon. Theres some déjà vu feeling with the story, but that doesn't neglect that these games offer tons of content, and that they serve as a great farewell for the series before jumping to the Switch.

Even if you unlocked all there was from the Alola region in the previous games, these Ultra iterations have even more tucked away for you to discover.

Even for those who haven't experienced Pokemon fever first-hand, Ultra Sun and Moon still manage to convey the sense that they was lovingly-crafted for a highly-dedicated demographic. Everything from the availability of Z-Moves to the Pokemon Snap-esque photo function serves as a reminder that Ultra Sun is just as much for experienced players as it is for series newcomers, and additions like the ability to groom and heal Pokemon after battles presents a subtle touch that provides both utility to the player as well as a way to feel a deeper connection to the game's numerous pocket-sized companions.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon don't change things dramatically, but for anyone who hasn't played the excellent Sun and Moon, this is now the definitive version.

Pokémon Ultrasun and Ultra Moon is an enhanced version of its predecessors and it keeps all of their quality. Unfortunately, there are few new and actually noteworthy features. Also, from a technical point of view, it still has some problems. Necrozma's story could have been managed much better: like this, it's almost a copy with a different ending of the one we saw in Sun and Moon.

Once lost the surprise factor to present almost the same history and Island challenge that Sun & Moon, Ultrasun and Ultramoon, as the "definitive editions", are a good alternative for those who did not make the jump to the seventh generation, but lacks enough novelties to justify a new and last purchase for 3DS for those who did it.

Some things are better, some things are worse and some things are just different. So I don't think that Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon can replace Sun and Moon, but rather they kind of just sit beside them. I don't know that I'd recommend one set of games over the other; instead, I'm just kind of glad that I played both of them.

Ultra Sun and Moon feel like the definitive version of an already fantastic game. With plenty to do after the credits have rolled, and new content sprinkled across the story, this is a fitting swansong for Pokemon on the DS family.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon aren't bad games, but they are victims of their own hype, which they fail to to live up to. While the plot has changed, these alterations are minor, thrown together, and ultimately do harm to the experience. Despite the addition of two new mini games, a few new features, and a different post-game, they are simply not as enjoyable as their Sun and Moon predecessors.
