  1. The addition of character control and world exploration are a natural transition for the series. The picture is crystal clear, simplifying the act of card placement.
  2. Yu-Gi-Oh! fans are getting the most complete game they've had in the series while the rest will all still look at it and wonder what the hell the fuss is about. Definitely one for fans only. [Mar 2007, p.80]
  3. Sporting an immense amount of notoriously addictive card wars, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force is a no-brainer for fans and a decent introduction for the curious. You could easily sink weeks into the game and still come nowhere near unlocking all of the goodies that are available.

    The duels themselves are flashy and enjoyable, but the story mode surrounding them is almost as dull as actually being in class.
  5. It does enough justice for the license to appeal to noobs and the elite alike.
  6. This was doomed from the beginning. I played it with an open mind though and found some enjoyment out of collecting cards and managing my decks. Once the battles started all that enjoyment went away I went back to disliking card games.

    Tag Force had a chance to reinvent itself and blew it by not adding in elements missing from the series and making room for extras that no one wanted in the first place.

    This is more than just a card game. With all the thousands of cards avabile you can actually for the first time customize your deck to any way you like. Instead of spending hundreds dollars to buy all the cards you to test out what is the most effective deck at your disposal, this game is a necessity for causual yugioh card players who enjoyes competition because this is a great practice for the tournaments you will enter.

    The best Yu-Gi-oh! game to date.For so long,fans of the series and games have been waiting for a game like this.A go-anywhere,talk to anyone type of gameplay and the ability to go online and update ban lists and download new cards make this one a must-buy for all fans. The biggest collection of old and new cards of any game to date,plus the new addition of tag dueling make this one of the very few "Must Have" games for the PSP if you're a duelist. Collapse

    My expectations were too high; althought "Tag Force" has great card design and flawless gameplay mechanism, there really wasn't much to do.
