  1. Yes that's right, it's boring. A card based game lasting ten minutes is ideal for filling in during break time, mighty convenient whilst waiting for the bus to turn up, even a mild diversion from the stares of fellow passengers when on the bullet train, but just plain old dull when sitting in the house on your own at ten o'clock at night.
  2. The entire package is just out there riding the coat tales of the involving Yu-Gi-Oh games, or the incredibly diverse and playable Pokemon titles. As such, I urge every hard working parent to opt for one of those for their kids instead.

    This game is addictive! I'm happy that it comes with a tutorial because I have never played the actual card game before. The game is fun and challenging plus it allows you to think and strategize gameplay instead of just "shooting" through levels. I also love being able to link up with my friends to trade cards; a VERY cool feature! Full Review »

    I'm a big fan of collectible cards (collecting stuff will be my doom), so I tried out Duel Masters. Somebody told me to try out the game if I wanted to learn the game mechanics quickly and have a good tutorial on how to play. So I went on and bought the Sempai Legends. Now, for once, a cool game based on cards! Lately Yu-Gi-Oh has been providing us with some of the worst stuff on the planet... The Sempai Legends has everything you need: 1)A whole set of cards from which to custom make your deck (and some cool folio "real" cards inside the box). 2)A fun story mode that gives you the possibility of exploring a cartoon style world while trying to catch an evil dueler who has robbed one of your most precious cards. 3)Easy to use menus: customizing your deck is fun and quick. 4)Cool card graphics, great 2D anime-like graphics for your character and environment. Nice music. 5)...but especially... AWESOME MONSTERS. Not little cute Pokemons, or strange Egyptian freaks...HUGE SHARP BAD DUDE MONSTERS with cool powers and weapons that battle each other using their special attacks. I started playing the card game after I went through the video game. Listen to my advice, buy the video game then play the card game! If you already play the card game, create your deck in the video game and get to train your skills. Some in-game duelers are really strong and use intelligent deck strategies. Full Review »
