Join the Duel Academy and find a dueling partner in this Yu-Gi-Oh! game for PS2! Here’s Gary’s game review.

The dueling action of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game has finally arrived on the PS2 with Yu-GI-Oh! GX The Beginning of Destiny. It lets you join the famous Duel Academy as a new transfer student and learn all about dueling as you meet the characters from the anime. Not only can you duel everybody, you can also make friends as you search for a tag duel partner to join you in a four-duelist showdown! Gary took this yugioh game for a test-drive and here's the 411 on it with his game review.

Duel, duel, duel!

This game kicks off with you joining the Duel Academy and getting to hang out with everybody from the anime. You go to class, learn how to play and duel, duel, duel. Winning duels earns you points you can trade in for more cards to improve your deck. Talking to people lets you make friends with them and eventually get one of them to team up with you in tag duels.

Combos and Friends

Not only does this yugioh game teach you to play the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG and hang with (and duel) the anime characters, there are also tons of yugioh cards to collect and duel with. In fact, if you're a dueling maniac, you can skip the story and just put your dueling skills to the test in the Duel Mode. If you're even more hardcore yugioh and have Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2 for the PSP you can plug it into your PS2 with a USB cable to unlock more cards!

The Pain!

If you aren't a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan this yugioh game will make you sad. The story is pretty weak and dueling can be pretty dull if you aren't into it. Plus, even if you just want to duel, the opponents make some weird mistakes. Oh, and the three exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! cards that come with the game? Weak.

Final Grade?

If you're new to the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game, or love it and want to duel more, this game is solid. It has a great tutorial to teach you how to play and is packed full of cards and opponents for you to play with. The story mode isn't great and the computer makes some bizarre blunders but it's still a whole lot of game and can keep you playing for ages.

Thumbs Up:

  • Hundreds of cards and dozens of duels.
  • Team up with the characters from the anime.
  • Plug the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2 PSP game into your PS2 to unlock more cards.
  • Thumbs Down:

  • The computer makes some big mistakes.
  • The three exclusive cards are weak.
  • The story isn't very good...
  • Game Rating: 4

    Available for: PS2.

    Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
