  1. Both fans of the series and newcomers will find Bakugan Battle Brawlers DS a surprisingly deep, yet rushed game.
  2. A surprisingly respectable showing by Activision. With so many publishers putting little effort into titles aimed at the younger gaming audience, it's refreshing to see fans of this license get something worth playing. In the end, though, the lack of variety and stale pacing make this a game that's only really fun in very small doses.
  3. Fans of the series will find something to enjoy with Bakugan Battle Brawlers, but all others will likely get bored almost immediately. It's faithful to the original product, which many fans will appreciate, but it's not going to convert you into a Bakugan fanatic.

    Bakugan: Battle Brawlers seems to do things mostly right on paper, though the actual gameplay offers too much build-up to each fight and not enough in the actual battle department.
  5. For non-Bakugan followers this is, quite literally, balls. [Christmas 2009, p.70]
  6. Bakugan: Battle Brawlers doesn't offer anything new to the turn-based strategy genre.

There are a couple things that could be better like you can't choose your gate card in battle arena but that is one of the very little list of things. Over all it's very fun to play through it's challenging and fun game Expand
