    A bit of good fun that's let down by its ambition for innovation. Still, it's worthwhile if you're a fan of the series, but it's probably best enjoyed with the 3D off.

    If you already have a Beyblader in the house, there’s a good chance they’ll like Evolution, but the learning curve is too steep for newcomers to get much enjoyment out of it.

    It's a bit dull. [Christmas 2013, p.89]

    While it makes the most of the unique functionality that the 3DS has to offer, it’s woefully repetitive and quickly becomes a monotonous affair. Beyblade fans may find enjoyment in its accurate depiction of the franchise’s universe, but that doesn’t disguise the fact that this is a flawed title that is clearly lacking in entertainment value.

    It does look quite impressive and, at moments, some of the features are actually quite cool. Unfortunately, most of the game is underwhelming.

    Unless you’re a big fan of the franchise, I can’t recommend buying Beyblade Revolution, especially at its suggested retail price. Its deceptively frustrating, promising a simple video game replication of real-life Beyblade that resides nowhere close to simple, especially as you begin.

    Beyblade Evolution is a game that’s difficult to recommend to anyone, even die-hard Beyblade fans. After just a couple of rounds the game already bores as the monotonous, awkward bey-battles lack any atmosphere or real challenge at all. Perhaps very young fans may appreciate the representation of setting up a physical Beyblade set-up, but even then it will more than likely get old very fast.

    The controls are hard to master in the beginning. The story is unhandled and feel like a old gba game. The old gba beyblade game was better.The controls are hard to master in the beginning.
