Yusei, Rally, and their friends are back for more Duel Monsters! How does this year's version compare to the past?

Every year, Konami releases a Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship game and this year is no exception. The 2010 game features over 3,200 cards, including all the cards from the Absolute Powerforce series. However, it is missing the exclusive cards from Crimson Crisis - Absolute Power and does not include the newest series: The Shining Darkness, which was released in Japan recently. So, no new Infernity cards or Blackwing Dragon, but there are still plenty to play with!


A Familiar Tale

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's World Championship 2010 Reverse of Arcadia features a storyline straightout from the anime series, which is disappointing considering that the story for 2009 was a bit more original. However, there are still some differences as you will be playing your own custom character who watches the events from the Return of the Dark Signers arc and works with Yusei and his friends to stop them.


A Familiar Game

The 2010 Yu-Gi-Oh game is very similar to the 2009 one. There are mini-games, racing through courses on your duel bike, and, of course, card dueling. Even the booster packs you start with are the same: Dark Beginnings 1 and 2 and Dark Revelation 1 and 2. Unfortunately, this means that you will be stuck using six year old cards until you are almost done the main story.


The racing game has been enhanced a bit and now features obstacles to make dueling interesting. There are also dueling tools, like Life Point calculator and judge dice/coins, that you can use when you play against friends in real life.


World Champion Material?

Overall, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's World Championship 2010 Reverse of Arcadia keeps it safe, improving only a few things here and there, such as the graphics and Wi-Fi features. The story and most of the game play is familiar stuff from past games, but that's just perfect if you are a Yu-Gi-Oh fan!
