    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.

    The digitised card system gets the job done, building on other versions we’ve seen in the past, but still has irritants. For instance, instead of getting a window of time to activate a quickplay card, it gives you a dialogue prompt after every action asking if you want to use it. That said, with so much content, it’s hard to complain. [Issue #175, p.76]

    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.

    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.

    The experience, on the whole, cannot be said to be as profound as that of other congeners, but remains deeply rooted in hearts and in the common imagination thanks to the iconic power of the legendary animated series.

    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.

    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.

Everything is recycled from a game from years ago. The gameplay is so slow: moving between cards and summoning, attacking, etc. There should be more animations for the cards, there should be more game modes, everything is so rustic. There si no música un the Game, just one song no an infinite loop.
    Positive: The story of the six sagas is good. A Lot of cards are included. Graphics are acceptable.

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. Full Review »
