    Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is the perfect game for lovers of this franchise. A remarkable longevity and many playing cards ensure many hours of fun, despite the unforgivable laziness on the visual side.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is back. The PlayStation 4 version includes many new cards, but not too many new features.

    Yu-Gi-OhLegacy of the Duelist Link Evolution is the most complete and faithful production to the franchise in terms of content offer,despite its old-fashioned and uninspired design and aesthetic.

    Other than a few issues here and there - incredibly small text being one, which I beg be patched in the future to allow for scaling - Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is the pinnacle of all the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG video games. It's one that honours each generation in a way that will make fans from across all eras of the franchise feel warmly welcome - if also sometimes a tad overwhelmed.
  7. 65
    The bottom line is this: the gameplay, abundance of cards, and fan service mean that those looking for a virtual Yu-Gi-Oh! card game experience have come to the right place. The overwhelming learning curve and lack of production values means that it’s probably not the best way for newcomers to experience the series though.

It has over 10,000 cards, campaign mode, challenge mode, and battle pack mode, which is enough to keep me busy for a long time. Making my own deck to play against the AI is one of the best parts. Multiplayer mode isn't really for me because it can get really competitive, but if you're in for the challenge, you'll have fun with that. Expand

Hundreds of hours of content, even better with friends playing the game. But the game is overpriced, almost the same game as the 2015 counterpart, with no animations and no innovation, so I can't rate this game more than 7. Expand

    Pros:
    An overwhelming amount of available cards.
    Prompts to activate cards can be adjusted to not show every 2 seconds.
    Grinding is not that heavy, every battle gives enough for anywhere between 2 and 5 packs of 8 cards each.
    Campaign battles can be done with a customized deck, even on the first run.
    Quick recap of the story for the fans.

    Cons:
    Overpriced, especially if you had the previous release.
    No way of tracking which card came from which pack.
    The tutorial for newcomers still leaves a lot out.
    Barebones animations, and for a ridiculously tiny amount of monsters at that.

    Low game, overpriced, recicled visuals from 2015, no crossplay and no updates.

Even the World Championship games on the Nintendo DS in like 2007 and 2008 had battle animations. Also the 3D models that briefly show up when you summon a boss monster like Dark Magician for example are somehow actually worse than said DS games. How is that even possible? Expand

The biggest issue with thisThe game is actually quite nice with a large selection of cards and fun story inspired scenarios you can play. The biggest issue with this game, and it is a MAJOR issue, is that it is constantly crashing. It is very frustrating to be at the end of a duel, about to declare the winning attack only for the game to crash and force me me to reboot it. And it is such a frequent occurrence that it discourages me from wanting to play a game that I really want to play. Expand

    Game has not released in time. Absolutely pathetic. People can't afford a Switch so us PS4 players are so upset for a late release.
