Pokémon Legends: Arceus is finally here and some of the top streamers have already jumped onto the hype by livestreaming their first play of the brand new game.

The hype for the newest Pokémon has been driving fans wild in the build up to its release on January 28, 2022. Nintendo have been kind enough to help ramp up the excitement by sharing just which Pokémon would be featuring in the game. However, Nintendo wasn't able to stop a number of leaks that occurred in the long lead up

Now, the wait is officially over, and the love that fans have for the game is as strong as ever. Most of which include some of the world's most famous streamers who have wasted no time in jumping on Arceus and sharing their experience on the game with fans. 

Which Streamers Like Pokémon Legends: Arceus?

Of course, Pokémon Legends: Arceus has only just been released. So, many streamers and content creators haven't been able to give their full review of the game just yet, or even had the chance to have a proper playthrough. However, a good number have already said good things about the newest Pokémon instalment.

For example, YouTuber Luke "GameboyLuke" Johnson has already expressed how much fun he was having with the new game and that he was going to have a second playthrough in the same day. 

Long-time Pokémon fan, Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang, also shared his initial positive review for the game, in particular its graphics. During his stream, Disguised Toast said: "I know the graphics isn't all that compared to other AAA games, but you can tell Nintendo are making an effort." He also compared Arceus' graphics to something you would expect in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Which Streamers Haven't Enjoyed Pokémon Legends: Arceus?

There was one particular YouTuber who left a scathing review of Arceus, claiming that "your time is better spent doing anything else." He claimed: "All my concerns about the game ended up being validated." Some of the issues he took with the game included the beginning of the game which he said "doesn't make sense". He also found the amount of dialogue very unnecessary stating that "for every one minute of freedom you get, you then get wrangled into yet another dialogue scene [...] there's no freedom in this game at all." He also said the controls were "clunky".

Of course, it's still very early days for the game and there are still many more streamers and Pokémon lovers to share their views with Arceus. But, we'll make sure you to keep you updated with all the very latest.
