The last Yu-Gi-Oh game I played was Nightmare troubadour on the DS, and getting back into the card game, this seemed like the most obvious place to start.
The game has an attractive and colourful colour. You will not mistake this game for anything else, but it is very typical and similar to the other covers in this series of games.
The game starts with you entering a few details about yourself and customising your avatar. After a few cut scenes, you end up in a dorm with others, with whom you duel. The story begins here and takes a rather linear direction compared to the other championship games where it is quite open.
That said, the story is quite developed and is deep. Despite not being as enthralling as the original Yugi Egypt story, this is not bad and allows for certain additional game play elements such as riding a "motorcycle" and having races.
Duelling wise, the synchros are in this game (I had not known about them before) so this game has helped me learn how to use them.
There are other elements such as being able to upgrade your "motorcycle", change your look and so on.
The story can be played in around 20 hours, but there is replay value through the championship mode.
The stylus can be used to control the game entirely, but personally I prefer using the controls.
The graphics are pretty standard to previous Yu-Gi-Oh games. Nothing spectacular can be found in this game graphically.
The game can be purchased for around £20 in most stores and online.
Compared to other Yu-Gi-Oh games on the DS, this is probably the best one yet. The story is deep and compelling, lasts a long time and manages to add other extras. Duelling is just as fun with the added synchros and many new cards. I would highly recommend this game to new Yu-Gi-Oh players as well as existing ones, and now I just can't wait for the next game!
