  1. The good things are: Booster packs won‘t cost you money like it was usual when playing the PS3 version as well as testing your tactical wits against computer and friends was never so much fun. But if you‘re not too much interested in fine-tuning your personal deck, you‘ll find yourself swearing when battling against an opponent that has a deck of this kind. Damn Ouroboros.

    The first The Eye of Judgment was a unique game. The PlayStation Portable version is the one without a camera but with the same elements. The unique aspect is lost, but the strategy gameplay is still very good. Only the story in this game is a bit boring and the gameplay isn’t for anyone.
  3. Get through the steep learning curve and there's an addictive strategy game underneath. [May 2010, p.96]
  4. The Eye of Judgment: Legends solves all the errors of the first game, appeared in PS3 three years back. This game offers a good supply in modes for one player, maintaining the online supply of the original EoJ. Unfortunately, EoJ Legends isn't compatible with the PS Eye camera.
  5. The Eye of Judgment is a niche game which will appeal only fans of the genre. As such, this porting is obviously a quite complete production which is based on the very same solid and deep rules of the original game, allowing a deep customization.

    The Eye of Judgment: Legends is a step forward from its PS3-version. That’s partly because of the lack of a camera and expensive cards. The campaign, however, doesn’t interest much as its story is unclear and the presentation is static. The graphics barely show any detail and the tutorial is too short to get a grip on the gameplay. Fans of card battles will love it, especially if they appreciate fighting online to learn how the cards work.
  7. As a card game experience on a portable system this is a great title. The campaign mode is interesting, there is an in-game card store that's fun to explore, you can experience the game online and the process of playing with cards is handled well. If you can round up some friends to play with you can raise the grade one notch.
  8. The foundation of The Eye is an excellent card game with amazingly complex rules, but you have to dig deep to uncover all the beauties this game has to offer. [Issue#190]
  9. Eye of Judgment Legends is a very solid strategic card game very and can be addictive for lovers of the genre.
  10. The Eye of Judgment: Legends is an enjoyable TDC game: the plot is pretty boring but, if you like the genre, the multiplayer mode will entertain you for a long time. Fans of turn-based fighting will certainly appreciate it.
  11. If you love strategy and cards, The Eye of Judgment Legends represents a good opportunity to enjoy of the turn-based fighting in your PSP.
  12. Despite its flaws this is a good game, which will please its followers.
  13. The undeniable truth about Eye of Judgement Legends is that without the use of real life cards, the game simply doesn’t stand up on its own. Every element of the game has been carefully constructed, from the effective aesthetics to the longevity present; it’s a real shame that forgiving the game’s lack of depth is near impossible.
  14. A decent TCG but there are better out there. Eye was a failed attempt best left in the past. [May 2010, p.69]

    It's not very engaging. [Issue#191, p.82]
  16. Without the camera, Eye of Judgment looses its appeal, and becomes a standard game.
  17. The only players I would feel comfortable in recommending this title too would be existing hardcore Eye of Judgement fans (I know that they’re out there) who are looking to get their hands on a portable fix.

It also features a trophy-like system, so battling in the coliseum has even more replayability. Recommended. Full Review »

    For fans of the original and hardly anyone else. I am a fan of the original game, but the craptastic story mode and severely brutal A.I. leftFor fans of the original and hardly anyone else. I am a fan of the original game, but the craptastic story mode and severely brutal A.I. left a bad taste. Sure, challenge can be good, but the developers went way to far with this one. The CPU knows everything. Here, it is quite clear that it is A.I. because it is non-human in the fact that it is flawless. You better get some good draws, because if you don't the CPU will just destroy you in the blink of an eye (of judgement). It somehow manages to get draws for nearly every situation. There are things that I like. Building decks is fun and can be strategic (again, you better get good draws because the CPU always will), I love the card shop (even though it can be limiting at times) and the gameplay does feel like a CCG. Sadly, I find myself getting frustrated more than enjoying the game. If you really want a CCG fix, this might work, but be prepared to get completely destroyed if you are new to TEOJ, and just plain destroyed even if you are not. Full Review »

    he original PS3 game Eye of Judgment which required real cards and the PS3 eye was replaced by this game. How does it fair? Well, I would havehe original PS3 game Eye of Judgment which required real cards and the PS3 eye was replaced by this game. How does it fair? Well, I would have a hard time scoring this game low simply because of its nature however I am really not a big fan of this version. For me the fun of the original was learning all the cards and being able to make a custom deck. I enjoyed the original version for the two years it was out and am very mad at Sony for discontinuing that version. This version is its replacement and has many creatures somewhat modified in an attempt to "balance" the game better. This is guess is where my real problem is with this version. In the original I did not really agree it was fairly balanced but with the changes they made to the creatures in this version I would argue that it is possibly more balanced but then because of this balancing it also has become more speed based and less strategic. So, in effect the love I had of the first game making confusing large strategic decks is even less effective in this game. Another thing I find silly is how this game is puzzle based and they just slapped together any old story they could to appease all the people bashing the first game saying it had no story. Fundamentally I think our world is getting rather silly when a puzzle game needs a story. Last time I played chess or checkers I don't remember them having any stories. So, basically i find the inclusion of the story in this game simply annoying and skipping events and story is easy but I'd certainly prefer the story not being there. The beauty of this game is the play. For those who never played the original or those still addicted to the original I advise this game but warn it may be the same ol and just an ok game for keepsake only as was my purchase. I basically just checked it out and once an while use my portable which rarely gets used and this game does not change that. The best feature of this portable version is that everyone can easily unlock set 3 creatures. In the original version on ps3 not many people were lucky enough to buy the sets because they were made in short supply. I guess in this regard this game is more expansive than the first and corrects a huge mistake. I however had all the set 3 cards so this game isn't bonus material for me but for those who had not completed their sets 1-3 you can do it all here easily. I guess for $30 then it is easy to recommend purchase so you can finally play the full version PS3 messed up. Full Review »
