  1. Deception on the Gamecube is Deception minus online play, plus two characters everybody wishes were in the first runs of the game.

    Deception can be mindless fun, but I can't help but feel that the developers are just trying to do too much with this game. [May 2005, p.138]

    It's not the worst game in the series, but perhaps the most disappointing because of the developer's inability to deliver on the majority of its several cool ideas.

Chess and Puzzle kombat modes are nice surprises. The only big mistake of the game is the Konquest Mode. Despite this flaw, the game is GREAT!!! Full Review »
