Pokemon Rumble Blast takes place in the world of pokemon wind-up toys. Although that sounds boring, it's actually a very cool concept. These pokemon toys use wind-up keys to move around, and they battle each other to see who is the best. The art is also pretty unique and interesting. The game is comparable to the mystery dungeon series, with a few changes, but they share "dungeons", birds eye view combat, moves with varying ranges, and such. The game is worth the money in my opinion even if you're new to pokemon, and I definitely recommend it to other pokemon fans. As of now, the game costs around 35 dollars in gamestop for a brand new copy.

The story line is pretty interesting, especially in the 2nd half of the game. Unlike the first rumble, the game has a real story line. I don't want to say anything specific to screw it up for you guys.
The graphics are great. The only thing I find bothering to me is the thick lines around the pokemon ingame. The game plays pretty well in both 3D and 2D.
A lot of the sound is recycled from the original Rumble. If you've played it, sound isn't going to surprise you, but it might make you remember a bit about the original.
The gameplay is very fun. You run around as a toy pokemon, using moves to KO other toy pokemon, and befriend some stronger ones to use as you get higher in levels. Pokemon have different move speeds, attack, and defense stats. It's interesting to try a lot of different pokemon.
The game will keep you playing for a while, you can go back to previous locations and try to befriend all the pokemon. You can also raise the world level which raises the level of pokemon. The only thing disappointing was the lack of return of shiny pokemon, so you wont be able to collect them.
