Bakugan: Defenders of the Core :: DS Game Review

Bakugan: Defenders of the Core :: DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 06, 2010
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

A brand new game with a brand new story set in an alternate dimension. Sounds interesting, but is it enough to make this Bakugan fighting game a hit?

Alternate Story

In Bakugan: Defenders of the Core, you create your own character and enter the world of Bakugan as Dan and Marucho's friend. One day, while training in Bakugan brawls, Interspace malfunctions and sends you to an alternate dimension where the Resistance lost to the Vexos and New Vestroia was destroyed.


In this world, the Vexos uses a special beam that breaks the Guantlets of the heroes. Being the only one immune to the beam's effects, your character must travel the world and save this alternate dimension before finding your way back home.


Alternate Gameplay

Your character must move carefully around Vexos guards and use your Bakugans to get around traps and security and complete your mission. Since you are the only one who can use them, joining you are 20 of your favourite Bakugans, including Neo Dragonoid and Aquos Elfin.


When you engage in a Bakugan brawl, you take full control over every action of the Bakugan in a 3D fight. You can mix up weak and strong attacks for combos and also fire projectiles and fly. When you get enough energy, you can activate power cards to help. Each fight happens in big, destructible environments.


Alternate Bakugan

Overall, Bakugan: Defenders of the Core is an interesting game. It is more of a fighting and stealth game and nothing like the toy/card game that it is based off of. If you want to get the real Bakugan experience, you still need to get the real stuff yourself. However, fans of the anime will like the new storyline and the free toy that comes with the game.


The story is also interesting, but a bit short, most players can finish story mode in about five hours. There is multiplayer, but no online play. Still, players can battle their friends and, with DS downloaded play, they only need one copy of the game to enjoy a simplified fight.

(Ship name: Star-Spider) This child is a bringer of good throughout the world, wearing a spandex costume looking like a normal super-hero's, but includes a fashionable tutu and pink material. The web that she shoots out of her hand hand be melded into any shape they want with a spoken spell, depending on the situation and amount of web they have available. If she gets her hand on her mother's wand, this child can be quite a force to be reckoned with: she has much more natural talent than her mother but much, much less control, and can cause massive amounts of collateral damage if she is not kept in check. She has an optimistic look on life and a perky attitude that can sometimes be annoying, but can become dead serious in the face of danger and is perfectly tuned for the life of a vigilante, no matter how much the villains laugh when they first see her. Next ship: Bill Cipher x Dipper Pines (Bill-Dip)
