    "I may have ended up in a dodgy part of town because I was more focused on chasing an eevee than where I was going. All good though. Pokemon themselves seem to be fairly random and capable of popping up no matter where you are. Pokestops and gyms are more common in more populated areas, though, so if you live in the middle of nowhere you might end missing some stuff. "

    "This was marked as action and racing so I was expecting a Road Rash sorta vibe from it. But that's not even close, I guess the action is just crashing during a race, I don't really feel like that sounds. It's a good racing game though, but there is very little action to it so I can't really recommend it based on what tags it has chosen."
