Ok, So im still a massive kid at heart. I love Yu-Gi-Oh! i collect the cards and sometimes i enter small tournaments. When i saw that there was a game that would me get my game on on the bus, train or plane i was very excited. You start the game itself by learning how to play from Yugi's (main characters) grandfather, It gives you a clear insight to the rules and strategies. I got the game for around £30 in HMV.
The games graphics are obviously not massively impressive due to the nature of the DS, However it is still quite pleasing to see your monsters come to life. Even with the limitations of the DS i would hope that there were battle animations, It doesn't matter to much that there isnt any but it would have been a nice adition.
The game allows you to build up your own decks by buying booster packs from within the game by using your hard earned points. Once you have a deck you and a friend can play against each other and see who is the best (very fun grudge matches)
Over all The game looks quite nice, plays very well and is a fantastic time waster. I would recomend this to anyone who likes Yu-Gi-Oh!
This is the best Yu-Gi-Oh card game for the DS, as it follows the original storyline of YuGi Moto and friends. It has a great card list including the sacred god cards. It is also a long story line to keep you going!
The controls are super easy and is basically just using the buttons. It is easy interface and the monsters are colourful and realistic, however there is a lack of monster animation and it sometimes feel cheap and quite annoying, because of the lack of movement. There is also very bad sound and i have turned this off throughout the game.
There is also quite alot of unecessary text which i tend to skip. Whilst this game is great and is the best in the yu gi oh series for the ds, it is quickly boring once you have a super deck and win every duel, but it is really fun for a short time.
The multiplayer (No wifi) wireless only consists of trade and battle, which could get boring at times, but its still better than nothing.
If you like Yu-Gi-Oh, this is the best game to get on the DS, and it will set you back about £20!
- HUGE card list.
- Many Characters from the show.
Price I Paid: £24.99.
- Lack of monster effects.
- No Speech.
This is the best Yu Gi Oh game there is in my opinion, but you HAVE to love the show the show and the card game to enjoy this, otherwise you will not like or understand it I feel.
This game is made for a niche market of yu gi card duelists, personally I love it, but I know if I'd never seen the show, read the manga, played the card game, I'd be lost!
OK well, this game is basically a turn based card playing game, each card represents either a monster, spell or trap. Each card has to be used to beat the oppositions with the aim to deplete your opponents life points to Zero. This game has no real story behind it, its basically a hash up of plot using the story arc of Yu Gi Oh! Season 2 - Battle City Duels and Yu Gi Oh! Season 3 - Enter the Shadow Realm as a basic guideline.
My advise to any potential buyer is: If you like Yu Gi Oh! AND the card battling aspect of the cartoon... and lets face it what else is there to love about it aside from the super cool pharoah! Then buy this game!
If you have never seen it but like the look of this game, I do not recommend because you may not understand it, the tutorials will not justify the spend.
