This Review will consist of 2 parts. Multiplayer and single player(though both are very much the same.Single Player
Ok , First I wanna say that I am a die hard yugioh fan but I never got into the 5D's show. However I have a few problems with this game. I feel that the A.I. in this game is incredibly "lucky". I am not the kind of guy to accuse a game of stacking the deck, but I cant help but feel that this is the case literally. I find myself being destroyed by turn 2 or 3. The A.I. some how manages to summon multiple monsters with over 2000 attack points in 1 turn, and in a position to lose. The A.I. seems to have a counter for about 80% of my moves. However this may be just a problem with the card game rules as the rules have become so complicated in the latest yugioh era, that it is far too easy to summon such monsters. Whats worse the toughest characters are faced in best 2 out of 3 format. The first 3 opponents are somewhat normal, but after that........ Other then that, I like the presentation, and there is a chance to save after every duel(thank god!!!
) But if not for the single player achievements, I would not play single player
This where the game shine, and o it does indeed shine. You can duel opponents over xbox live. You can play 1V1 or 2v2. I really love the multiplayer cause Im playing against other people This makes the game worth buying in my opinion
Score 10/10 Achievements
The achievements are mostly time grinders, except for 2 or 3 of them. So if your patient and good at the card game, you should no problem getting the 100% Final score
I can not recommend this game to everybody truly, as the rules can be complicated. I recommend only to yugioh fans and other TCG fans. Single player feels so rigged, but multiplayer is amazingly fun!!!
