  • Summary: Bakugan is based on the story of Dan and his friends whose lives were forever changed when mysterious cards fell from the sky. Creating a game from the cards where powerful creatures known as Bakugan battle, it wasn’t long before they discovered that their hobby was much more than just a simple pastime. Utilizing special game cards Bakugan battle masters roll spheres onto the cards, which activate and transform into Bakugan “battle brawling” action figures. [Activision] Expand

    As a game that most would assume to be a money-spinning cash-in at first glance, Battle Brawlers delivers quite the surprise when given a chance.
  2. Bakugan Battle Brawlers proves that you can make an engaging licensed game with a great presentation and solid gameplay.
  3. This game offers card collecting, platforming, and mini-games, and it's more than just a cash-in on a popular license.
  4. If you are a fan of Bakugan or want a nice nonviolent game for your child this should do the trick. Definitely skip this if you are looking to frag noobs with headshots.
  5. 62
    Bakugan: Battle Brawlers seems to do things mostly right on paper, though the actual gameplay offers too much build-up to each fight and not enough in the actual battle department.
  6. Purchase Bakugan Battle Brawlers only if you are a fan of the show. It is obvious that this game is made for younger gamers that don't mind repetition in their games. If you are looking for a little variety in a game that includes a deep storyline and interesting battles, you will need to look elsewhere.
  7. You could say that it is a competent video game that fans of the franchise will enjoy. But you could also say that Bakugan fans are goddamned idiots.

    This game was really fun! I enjoyed playing it. And it proves that a video game can make your brain work and gives you lots of exercise.

    The Only obvious improvement in this first entry would be online Multi-player. Otherwise thise is a GREAT start for the series in gaming!

    I never watched the show "Bakugan" but I can say, I really like this game. I found this game at my girlfriend's house and we decided to play it. When I saw the cover, I was a little concerned to whether it was a good game for two fourteen year olds.

    I can honestly say, I really enjoyed it. The graphics are great and the story line is quiet enjoyable.
