Bakugan: Battle Trainer :: DS Game Review

For the first time, Bakugan fans find out first-hand what happens before and after the brawls! But is it really *that* interesting?

Bakugan: Battle Trainer is a bit different than the Bakugan game that came out late last year. Rather than being like Bakugan in the cartoon show, Battle Trainer is more like a RPG game with leveling up and turn-based battles.


The Story So Far

You play as Dan, who has lost his memories. A mysterious spaceship has appeared and captured all the Bakugan! You must fight, starting with just one Bakugan, and rescue the other 30 or so Bakugan brawlers and use them in future battles. Other characters from the TV show will appear from time to time, but the story not very interesting.


It is also very short. One could beat the game pretty easily in one day. Unfortunately, once you beat the game, there is no real reason to keep playing. There is no harder difficulty settings to try out, nothing special to unlock, and there is also no multiplayer! This is too bad, as the game can actually be quite fun.


Train, Fight, Rinse, Repeat

The gameplay is nothing like Bakugan. There are no special cards or dice and you don't even throw Bakugan brawlers! Instead, you take the Bakugans and play mini-games with them until they are happy. Then, you can do different mini-games to train them and to learn new skills.


Once you have a decent team, you take three of them up to the spaceship and do battle against three other Bakugans. You can target an enemy Bakugan with yours for type advantage and they will battle each other. Defeat all three and you will rescue another Bakugan that you can add to your team! Once done, go back and train for the next fight.


BADugan or BaGOODgan?

If you are a really big fan of Bakugan, you will have some fun with this game. If you are new to Bakugan, then it is probably better to try the other Bakugan game first to see what Bakugan really is about.
