  1. An accurate virtual representation of its real world counterpart.
  2. It's easy to control and is so lifelike in it's recreation of the card game, that I wouldn't be surprised if the hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh! fans chuck their card books and play with their DS' instead.
  3. Don’t look at the license and figure it’s some kid game – there’s a whole lot of meat to this package.

    An all-around impressive presentation of Konami's card-battling craze.
  5. Too difficult for newbies, but lacking too many cards for old-hat masters, the game finds and neatly settles into a perfect niche among newer yet established fans who like working with what they're given and/or don't necessarily have the money to buy the game's infamously costly booster packs.
  6. World Championship 2007 will possibly create a few new fans, but most significantly, it will put smiles on hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.
  7. The huge time investment required to make anything that resembles progress means that this is hardly the best place for newcomers to start but by stark contrast, there's no better Yu-Gi-Oh! title on the market in terms of card lists, AI and sheer longevity.
  8. Hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh! players won't be left wanting. [Aug 2007, p.80]

    An amazing game, especially when you know how to play the game. The cards look sweet and the gameplay is smooth with absolutely 0% bugs.

    Definitely the best Yu-Gi-Oh game out there. Should be strongly considered if you own a DS and is a fan of the game or TV series. Definitely the best Yu-Gi-Oh game out there. Should be strongly considered if you own a DS and is a fan of the game or TV series. M.unkyboywndr, you are completely wrong, you can infact obtain the old cards via packs and the password can only work if you already have one or more copies of the card. Also, you can have one banned card in your deck later on. The best thing about playing on the DS is the wi-fi compatibility, you can download new cards, new banned lists, ghosts (decks that can be dueled against) and duel puzzles. An interesting thing about the game is that you can duel your own recipies (decks you made) which are controled by a AI to test it out which is very neat. Full Review »
