I bought this game for a couple of quid mainly cause i had played most of the games for the ps2 and took a gamble wuth this. Having never seen the cartoon i imagined it would be similar to yu-gi-oh. It is but not as good. The basic idea of playing as a character collecting monsters and battiling your way to the finall tournment to face the eveil widow sounds ok but the reality is that this game is extremlt tedious. You start off by picking 1 of 5 characters to battle with each with its own civilisation, fire, darkness, nature, light, water. Each civilisation has its own pluses and negative e.g fire has fast creatures that you can summon which will allow you to beat your oppent swiftly. The way the game plays out is that once youve picked your character and youve been and shoped for some cards you can enter a tournment and battle. You take it in turns to summon monsters depending on how much mana you have will determin what cards you can summon then the monsters will take it in turns to attack. Once you have completed a tournment with one character you have to go back and do it all over again with the other 4 before you can get to the final tournament. i managed to complete 3 characters then really had enougth. My advice if you liked the sound of this sort of game by yu-gi-oh duelist of the roses miles better.
