    Offering a serviceable but somewhat bland alternative for core card-battlers wanting to play with friends(but unable to organize an in-person match), Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels is a bit of a slog for all but super-fans. [June 2014, p.80]

    I love the Yu-Gi-Oh card and video games, and Millennium Duels seems to be the best that isn't a handheld iteration, or an unofficial gameI love the Yu-Gi-Oh card and video games, and Millennium Duels seems to be the best that isn't a handheld iteration, or an unofficial game like YGOPro. The game consists of a single player mode, which consists of four series, based on the four iterations of the anime (Yu-Gi-Oh, YGO GX, YGO 5Ds and YGO Zexal) consisting of four ladders. These ladders contain five duellists. Upon defeating one, you'll get their picture to use as a duellist picture (meaning you are no longer stuck with the male and female duellists with an obscured face in a red uniform), a character recipe, and some cards towards the set. There is a normal mode, with an expert mode, providing an additional challenge. There is also the additional pro that one loss doesn't reset your whole Single Player progression. There is also multiplayer, allowing for single and tag duels and best-two-out-of-three matches.

    I find this iteration much better than Decades Duels. Firstly, there are at least 6000 cards across the four generations of Yu-Gi-Oh, and there are updated banned and limited lists to cards. These add more balance to the game, and removes cards that are generally considered unfair, but some are questionable, like the banning of Monster Reborn, a basic card allowing the revival of a monster from either players graveyard. This card has been a staple throughout Yu-Gi-Oh's life, and the banning of it is unexpected, though there are other cards using a similar effect with different consequences, making up for this ban. Your cards and recipes from Decade Duels can be carried over, including the Decade Duels starter deck. However, due to the updated card bans and limitations, a lot of them are incompatible without modification. My primary deck, a Different Dimension deck, didn't suffer that much from this, but I can imagine decks having large reworks.

    The Multiplayer is very good too. As well as public multiplayer, you can do private games with your friends. Games can be customised too, you can play with varying amount of life points, and play a single game, of a two-out-of-three match. However, the customisation is lacking. The physical game had unofficial rule sets which were fun and catered for several players. Commonly seen are younger players participating in what I like to call "Duellist Kingdom" rule sets, with 2000 or 4000 life points with discard rules removed, and four-way duels, similar to what you see in Magic the Gathering. Whilst I wouldn't play the Duellist Kingdom rule set, I'd happily play four-way duels, as I have played them physically, and I have enjoyed those duels much more that one-on-ones and tag duels. One more missing customisation option that disappoints me is the option to allow banned and limited cards in private games.

    Finally, the music present are either directly taken from Decade Duels, or are not as nice to listen too. The menu music is arguably annoying, and I much rather preferred the Decade Duels menu music.

    All my gripes are minor, and I realise a lot of the missing features that I would have liked employed can be considered not very sensible (like making extra game modes).

    So in summary, there is a more structured, less random single player mode, which doesn't require you to win all your duels in a row, and anticipating a loss so you can quit and retry from where you are, more aesthetic choices in the form of duellist pictures, cards that carry over from Decade Duels, a solid multiplayer experience, with lacking game customization in terms of different rule sets and the allowance of Banned and limited cards.

    If you like Yu-Gi-Oh, I recommend this. If you don't, this won't get you into it.

If you did not play Decade Duels first then you definitely should not play MD as you'll be forced to use the starter deck for the game and you'll get poundcaked real bad (and the original series duels are a cakewalk compared to the other gen duels). As for those that played DDs, if you felt that Decade Duels' single player mode was too short, boring or easy, this will change your opinion of that very quickly.

    160 new duels for the single player
    Thousands of new cards to collect and use
    Challenging A.I.

    The only issue I have with the game is that it can get a little buggy with black screens, freezes and cards with no pictures every now and then. Other then that it's a great game.

    For the ones thinking the game is bad because they suck at it, go and play Decade Duels first so that you can get some cards. The single player on that game is a cakewalk. If you don't like to be challenged then you shouldn't be playing the game in the first place.

    The Bad: Some old favorite cards are now banned (Monster Reborn, Brain Control, Giant Trunade, Heavy Storm - WTF?) This is basically the same game as Decade Duels. If you liked it, you'll like this, if you didn't this won't change your mind. The production values continue to feel medicore (Even if you can't afford animated fights at least show us 3-d models of the cards or something). Getting a multiplayer game going can still be a pain. There is a lot of room to grow on the Decade Duels foundation and this effort barely capitalizes on it.

I still haven't even made it passed Pegasus, because essentially the game cheats for the bots, gives them the best cards (while the starter deck you are given is mostly compiled of bad cards), and will instantly smash you into the ground. What's the game like passed Pegasus? Haven't even the slightest of clues. It's not worth the ten dollar price tag, go rent a bad movie, you'll have more fun with it, trust me.
