  • Summary: Yugi and his friends are trapped in a virtual reality world gone crazy. As Yugi or Kaiba, you must form a team of three monsters to occupy towns across two different scenarios and take part in strategic team battles. Delegate commands to your team to conquer each mission. During battle, your team can perform devastating group attacks and combos. Over 175 monsters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated TV series appear in the game--and all of them will fight to the finish for control of each map. Expand

  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. Please don’t buy this game. Not for your kid, not for you. It’s not worth it. Get them more cards or something. They won’t get anything out of this Yu-Gi-Oh game other than story.
  5. The special attacks look crap and make no sense. How can you possibly electrocute a skeleton? Dry bone doesn't conduct. Someone wins. You're bored. The end.
  6. The Falsebound Kingdom is almost a prophetic title as this inferior product is forced upon the multitude of loyal supporters that are blind to the deception and exploitation employed by the Yu-Gi-Oh Empire.
  7. There just didn’t seem to be much care put into this title, and if I were a fan of the series, I’d consider this title a slap in the face.

    It was very strange to play a yugioh game without the actual cards, but it was different, and the enjoyment I got out of it lasted hours on end, the story wasn't too bad either, and the graphics were really good for a 2003 game. Expand

    It was a weird thing for Konami to release a Yugioh RTS. The game itself is odd. Whenever a character engages another they battle with 3 monsters on each side. The monsters have damage points to inflict when attacking (ATK) and the monsters being attack have an amount life points before they die. Each player takes turns but not in a specific order. Whenever all enemy players are eliminated you win. For Yugioh fans this is an odd, and for RTS players the game s ironic. I can best say this game is for the big Yugioh fans, RTS gamers looking for a different perspective, or if you wana buy the game new for the 3 cards the game comes with. Overall as a licensed game it did a fine job, but really isn't an RTS game. Expand

    An absolute bore of a game. A ploddingly slow ripoff of Shining Force with characters from an anime no one likes. It's not even worth owning for a Gamecube collector. I wouldn't recommend this game even as a waterboarding implement. I think the Geneva Accords have a rule against using it. 0/10 Expand
