    Konami would do well in scouting out a new development team to handle the next Yu-Gi-Oh! game. With the last couple being workmanlike but unremarkable efforts, it's difficult to shake the feeling that without an overhaul the star of this particular CCG is only going to fade further. And that would be a pity, because the core card game remains one of the most strategic that we've ever seen.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is just good but lacks of voice acting. Legacy of the Duelist is probably the most satisfying Yu-Gi-Oh video game I've ever played. I played the GBA games back when those were big, and this game is much more detailed (and has over 6,000 cards to collect). You also get to relive the duels of all five generations of the Yu-Gi-Oh TV series (Duel Monsters, GX, 5D's, Zexal, and a little bit of Arc-V). But I don't really care about any of those except for the original Duel Monsters series, since that was the one I grew up with. It covers a decent amount of that show, but not as much as I had hoped (the Noah arc isn't there at all, and I think there's a bunch of other stuff missing too). That said, most of the battles you care about are there from the beginning of the show up through the Battle City season. You can either use the story deck or your own custom deck for each duel, and you can even play as the opposing side if you want (giving you a chance to use Pegasus' deck against Yugi, rather than the other way around).

    This game is probably the most well executed titles in the Yu-Gi-Oh! series.

    It has every version, as well as tutorials to help understand the game. The script is on point, and the gameplay is just as satisfying as playing it in real life.

    The constant pop-ups are always frustrating, however it needs to be there to work.

    Absolutely great game, and very well worth the low price mark of a cool $20...

    You want to play Yu-Gi-Oh! Without having to sink hundreds of euros or dollars into real cards? Well luckily you mostly can with this game.You want to play Yu-Gi-Oh! Without having to sink hundreds of euros or dollars into real cards? Well luckily you mostly can with this game. Mostly.

    The game is structured as follows: You got a campaign where you can play most of all the duels from the several tv series. You can play multiplayer against other people, and there is a challenge mode where you open packs and make a deck from scrap cards. Unfortunately some key duels in the series are locked behind DLC. That's very **** Konami.

    While playing you will earn credits which you can use in the deck store to buy packs. These credits are only in-game and not premium, and you can get most cards in the game this way. But... unfortunately Konami decided to lock several decks, which number in easily a thousand cards, behind a separate pay wall. These often include popular cards from the series to incentify extra spending. This is a shame.

    Luckily the actual game works well and is fun. This is a great game if you are into Yu-Gi-Oh and don't have any one to play with. At a starting price of 15 Euros this is a great deal with many hours of fun.

    It's a good game. I give it a 7/10.

    Overall this game is rather fun albeit cheese! But there were some issues I saw with it.

    1. Dialog - The Dialog on this game is riddled
    Overall this game is rather fun albeit cheese! But there were some issues I saw with it.

    1. Dialog -
    The Dialog on this game is riddled with little typos. You'd think for a $20 game they'd have hired a person to check the selling!
    2. No free roam! -
    Sadly this installment unlike the tag force series had no ability to free roam which IMO was quite fun and added to the story. In this game its basically a comic book with battles in between "Issues".
    3. The DLC! -
    The DLC for this game is ridiculous. Its $5 for as little as one new person to duel. If you purchased this game for $20 then bought all of the DLC it would end up costing you $60! Thats right folks the price of a AAA game!
    4. The animations -
    For some of the more popular and memorable of cards there are these little animations when you destroy monsters. Ultimately these are really hit or miss and annoying! When I say hit or miss I mean a lot of popular cards (Egyptian god cards, Exodia ect) are not even given animations (The ones I've seen thus far (Blue eyes, Dark magician & Red eyes). But thank god they did not do this for every card! Because whenever you attack you have to sit through this little animation over and over. Honestly forbidden memories had is right where you had to attack pressing a specific button for the animations.

    In conclusion I must say its a rather fun play but the creators of this game clearly got to money hungry and lazy. They want AAA money for a game with PS2 graphics and not so great story telling.

    The largest and most fulfilling feature in Yu-Gi-Oh of the last generation on the PS3 and Xbox 360 was Tag Dueling.

    There are no Tag Duels
    The largest and most fulfilling feature in Yu-Gi-Oh of the last generation on the PS3 and Xbox 360 was Tag Dueling.

    There are no Tag Duels in this game. This is unacceptable.
    Whether this game was made by a different company or not is irrelevant. I normally expect game series to move forward with their designs, and add to themselves. Instead, they have just flat out removed solid features of the game.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist has taken a big step backward, and unless you like playing card games alone, you should not buy this game.
