Yu-Gi-Oh! GX The Beginning of Destiny :: PS2 Game Review
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 FriendsNot 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.
Available for: PS2.
