  1. The online mode is easy to use and can be replayed endlessly. The story mode is a nice bonus, but is only really good for a single playthrough.
  2. Reverse of Arcadia doesn't bring anything too new to the table when it comes to dueling itself, but the added character movement, massive amounts of cards to acquire, in-depth tutorials to read over, online multiplayer, and a duel calculator for real card duels are all part of an excellent package that any true Yu-Gi-Oh fan should own.
  3. This is overall an interesting title, although it is completely focused on those who know the card game, or at least are familiarized with, even through the TV series.
  4. A bafflingly deep card battle experience to look forward to. [June 2010, p.71]

    The single player still needs work, but as it stands Reverse of Arcadia is the most complete Yu-Gi-Oh! game released to date.

    There's not a doubt in my mind that this is the best in the franchise. After the disappointment of the 2009 installment, 2010 gives a GOOD original story that actually explains itself as if you, the silent protagonist, were a part of the first season of 5Ds. There are a ton of cards, intelligent AI, and excellent replay value due to the New Game Plus feature that allows you to replay the story mode with all of the cards you've collected thus far. I recommend it for any Yu-gi-oh fan out there. Expand

    An excellent game for fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series but new comers might be scared off by the major difficulty spike in the many modes in the game. There are a large amount of modes such as a story mode where you battle key characters from the anime and race on duel runners along with other things (it can be replayed after beating the game while still keeping everything earned in the previous playthrough), world championship mode where you can challenge a large variety of opponents with a big variety of deck designs to test your deck, tutorials and puzzles to practice and master skills, Wifi modes for battling friends and random users, downloading cards to use in-game along with other downloadable content such as updated card ban lists, new puzzles, downloadable opponents and more to keep things fresh and increase replayability.
    The downloadable content, large amount of cards to collect and build decks with and wifi battling with friends or random users gives the game more than enough replayability to be worth the money but the game's difficulty spike might scare off new or inexperienced players.

    "Yu Gi Oh! 5D's World Championship 2010 Reverse of Arcadia" is a game that is nothing like the 2007 version...It's terrible!!! There's a newly added 3D version of your character where you can roam around and sneak into buildings, but their conversion to a pokemon style gameplay fails with wooden characters and **** hard building sneak in. The card graphics are much more dated and weaker than the older ones. IF you want to play a yu gi oh DS game, this isn't your game to play. Expand
