  • Summary: In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards, it's just as important to play your cards right as it is to get the right cards. This unique RPG gives you cards as weapons against the tough competition. You'll battle in a tournament hosted by Kaiba Corporation and win the powerful Egyptian God Cards. Based on events from the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated TV series, The Sacred Cards offers hundreds of cards, over 100 duelists and rivals, and unexpected twists and surprises. Expand

  1. An excellent game, but I would have to recommend Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel to Yu-Gi-Oh! fanatics over this game.
  2. The RPG side of the game is limited to running around town and finding opponents to duel, but the duelist leveling system does add a new wrinkle to the gameplay.
  3. Regardless of your skill, everyone will be thankful for the improved battle interface. [Feb 2004, p.114]
  4. While the basic Yu-Gi-Oh gameplay is here, with some nice new visuals, the overall experience has been far too simplified with easy AI opponents and little motivation to improve one’s deck.
  5. 50
    A drastic step backwards from what the past two Yu-Gi-Oh games established on the Game Boy Advance.
  6. Casual Yu-Gi-Oh fans may not find enough new in the game to make it worthwhile. [Feb 2004, p.155]
  7. Not only virtually unplayabe for non-fans but I find it extremely difficult, almost impossible to recommend to fans, period.

    It was interesting to see a Yu-Gi-Oh RPG but it severely lacked content and replay value. You only had to beat opponents one time before advancing in the game and the entire game only took a few hours to beat. It was faithful to the series though and it was an interesting concept but a failed game none the less. Expand
