    By its proposal, Duel Master clearly distinguishes itself from Duel Links, the other free-to-play in the universe of Yu-Gi-Oh!. By focusing solely on the playing card game, the title offers a very complete experience with official rules and a huge collection of cards on all media thanks to cross-platform.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel delivers what all duellists have been waiting for, as well as a surprise standout solo mode that relieves itself from the shackles of the anime. With quality deck-building mechanics, intuitive duelling, and an impressive roster of available cards, it’s only the test of time that this free-to-play game still has to ace.

    The long-awaited Yu-Gi-Oh! game delivers on its promise. Whether you're a novice, a hobbyist or an expert, it will be a game for you. Its single player mode which is full of tutorials to learn the basics and its mechanics while telling stories about the archetypes. On the other hand, with PvP in room or ranked with an exclusive banlist that puts all players on the same level. Especially with the possibility to craft your cards or destroy them. There are however some flaws that can be found. Apart from that, the lights are green for Konami's competitive game.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is an odd game to recommend. Those of you who have never played before may want to check it out—it’s free after all—but even at that lowest of prices the barrier to entry is so great that it can feel like getting stuck into this one isn’t really worth the effort it would take. Those of you who have a longer history with Yu-Gi-Oh! will have a much better time getting into it and climbing the ranks, but then you were probably going to play this game regardless of reviews. At any rate, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel has all the foundations of a potentially great online card-battler, and though it has its issues — at least at launch — it’s definitely worth checking out if you've got the fortitude to stick with it.

Principalmente pra quem joga comO jogo em si é ótimo (tirando o detalhe que falarei em seguida),.. porém, as partidas são muitíssimo longas.. Principalmente pra quem joga com decks clássicos (Toon, Harpia, Herói etc); pois a pessoa não fica mandando e puxando carta pra/do cemitério 500.. Faço minha jogada em 30 segundos (1 min. no máximo) com um de meus decks clássicos, porém tenho de esperar uns 4 a 5 minutos pra o oponente terminar a jogada dele toda vez? Assim não presta.. Deveria ter rankeada com apenas decks clássicos (sem essas besteiras de monstro link, pêndulo, xyz etc..).. Clássico que no mínimo usem fusão ou sinchro (pois são jogos mais rápidos e principalmente, mais equilibrados em comparação com os decks clássicos).. E eu então que não tenho o Switch versão Standard mas sim o Lite, com essa demora das partidas gasto 25% da bateria só em UMA PARTIDA, que ela acaba levando 30min.. Pelo amor de Deus né, a pessoa quer apenas um jogo rápido pra relaxar, não uma eternidade assistindo ao oponente mandando 500 vezes o mesmo monstro pra o cemitério e retornando ele, pra depois jogar rapidamente.. Deveria sim ter rankeadas para somente decks clássicos, ou ao menos baixar o tempo das partidas de 480 segundos pra 300 por jogador.. Pq com o lag que esse jogo tem no meio da partida, esses 8 minutos (480 seg.) de cada jogador acaba sim tornando-se 20min.. Expand

    The game is cool for graphics and animations are not too long. But for the Switch It's a miss...
    Menus are laggy to death, no joystick so you will use finger on portable mode for the better. For new players the ranked system is a nightmare : Opponent play 15min for every minute you play with a starter deck, be prepare to netdeck the first day for grinding (no ranking down, so you only rank up on noob experience, worst idea).
    And the cards packages are very disturbing with almost 6750 cards on every choose.

Second the game crashed on deck editor mode and the last is that the graphics looks faded when play in docked. I don't even know how Konami QA approved a game with such serious issues. The game needs a lot of fine tuning and hope Konami fix it with futures update. Expand

It is the same as Legacy with a outdated ban-list at the time of this his review, with the PVP matches being heavily play to win. I can’t in good conscience recommend playing this game unless you get extremely lucky. 1/10 heavy P2W, with a side topping of 5 min round times as they get their Two Turn Kill set up with 4000 attk monsters on all 5 tiles.

    Terrible incredibly slow. Matches can be 5-15 mins long. You constantly draw cards unevenly. Print is small if you are on a console. YouTerrible incredibly slow. Matches can be 5-15 mins long.
