  1. Where it separates itself from the real game is that it allows you to duel the characters from the show with surprising accuracy, you don’t have the problems of picking up or keeping track of your cards and it allows players to play with cards they either can’t afford or haven’t come across yet. A huge bonus.
  2. More of the same with a few enhancements. Those looking for more will be disappointed.

    The game's still challenging and addictive, and we're not surprised at how engrossing it is this time around because we've already learned that fact twice before. But Konami still hasn't addressed the issues from past games, most notably adding some sort of tutorial to bring in a new audience.

    The real shame is that the interface designers didn't take more time tightening up the game flow since the last iteration. [May 2004, p.78]
  5. It's about on par with a video poker machine in terms of graphics and sound. [May 2004, p.108]
  6. Some of the menus have been streamlined and the new cards look great but other than that the game looks identical to last year's game.
  7. 40
    While there are many characters to unlock and compete with, it takes a long time to see any of them thanks to the incredibly slow rate at which you acquire powerful cards.
