  1. Yggdra Union had the potential to be a really compelling tactical game, but due to a lazy storyline, a cumbersome UI, and a brand of gameplay that excludes the player 50% of the time, it couldn't help but fall short.
  2. Overall, if you missed this on the GBA and like a challenge in your RPGs, then Yggdra Union will be right up your alley.
  3. Yggdra Union is by no means the definitive tactical RPG experience, nor is it a perfect game. However, for all of my qualms, I found myself continually going back for moreā€”and not just because I had to in order to review the game, but because I felt myself drawn to the strategy and enjoyed the satisfaction of victory.

    If you're not really focusing on what's going on during battle, you may find your forces quickly dispatched. Conversely, if you play to your strengths, you may find yourself giggling with glee as you lay waste to your adversaries.

    The steep learning curve may put off newcomers, but for those willing to commit to its complexities, Yggdra Union offers a truly refreshing strategy experience. [Dec 2008, p.92]
  6. Yggdra Union is more fun to say than it is to play.
  7. 50
    You can take a game of tic-tac-toe and throw a whole bunch of spicy house rules on it, but let's face it: You're drawing friggin' circles and Xs. Yggdra is a competent example of the tactics genre, but there are others (Fire Emblem, for one) that do everything Yggdra does more simply and are just a lot more fun.

    the gameplay oh the gameplay
    its one of those games that easy to get in to but some peopole can spend years and not be good at it and some can spend seconds and be a master but its realy realy fun the visuals were eye candy on its gba port and now it has voice acting and such theres no reason not to get it over the GBA version unless you dont have a psp in witch case GET THIS GAME the story is fantastic with each and every character being funny or having a unique personality and trust me the end will leave you balling (FREAKIN ANKHS)
    the gameplay is very nice if a critic didnt like the game its because there not good at it and thus dont like it as much this game will always have a spot in my game library and since its also a digital download if you dont get it your just keeping yourself from a great game
