It does have more and less parts, areas and things to do than HGSS or previous versions but that's the whole idea of it. Start a whole new page and enter a whole new region. Don't get stuck on repeating features and just go with the new. If you want the old stuff play the older games. The newer Pokemon game cards can only hold so much, and it's full of new stuff. I really like all the new stuff they have tried and now Pokemon B2&W2 is like an updated version of Pokemon B&W and has more features again.
