  1. Its technical shortcomings are easy to ignore and once you grasp the unique gameplay, it turns out to be quite a lot of fun. Definitely recommended for fans, they're sure to have a ball.
  2. Even with relatively few RPGs on the GameCube, Falsebound Kingdom's relatively simple approach isn't that captivating - unless you're a Yu-Gi-Oh fan who is a newbie to the RPG genre. [Jan 2004, p.141]

    All of the elements were there to make this an addictive and challenging title. Instead, it's a slow-paced and confusing jumble.
  4. Takes a step in the wrong direction by trying to take the popular card game and turn it into a turn based style RPG kind of format.
  5. 50
    Doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the GameCube’s capabilities.

    This game was Great! AWSOME! Windwaker on the other hand is the epitome of evil. The cell-shading they used makes me puke for eight days! This game was Great! AWSOME! Windwaker on the other hand is the epitome of evil. The cell-shading they used makes me puke for eight days! Ocarina of Time was the best game ever. I didn't expect Windwaker to be better, but they could have at least tried! Oh, and by the way, Yugioh The FalseBound Kingdom was a masterpiece! A shining example to all other RPG's, and believe me, I have played A LOT of RPG's! This game's story was also exellent. Most games don't even have half of the story this one had. If you want a challenging yet fun game, inlayed with a rich plot and first-class gameplay, BUY THIS GAME! Full Review »

    Yu Gi Oh Falsebound Kingdom was by no means a perfect game, but you could tell there was some work put into its development. The large rosterYu Gi Oh Falsebound Kingdom was by no means a perfect game, but you could tell there was some work put into its development. The large roster of monsters and the inclusion of many Yu Gi Oh cards as items, made the turn-based/strategy game really interesting. While the graphics aren't for everyone the gameplay is quite entertaining and the replay value is adequate for completionists, especially because of the three different story modes. This may not be perfect but it is a fairly entertaining game, definitely recommended for fans of the series. Full Review »
