Battle with the powers of a Shaman in Upper Deck's Shaman King Trading Card Game!

The Shaman King animated TV show is all about the adventures of Yoh and his spirit Amidamaru as they battle other shamans to become the Shaman King. Every shaman has a spirit that lets them use incredible powers in battle. Now the peeps who do the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game are giving you a chance to battle with the power of a shaman! Check out our card game review.

Shaman King Card Game Battling 101

The Shaman King card game is a bit wacky compared to other games cuz of a few things. First, when you play you choose your fave Shaman King anime character, each one with different powers, and that's who you battle as. Second, you never have any cards in your hand! You only draw cards to block and, if you can't block with the card you drew, you store it as energy and draw another card. Three missed blocks and you take a hit, three hits and you lose! Storing energy cards powers your attacks, and certain kinds of power-ups let you use Signature Attacks!

Incredible Shaman Powers!

Once you get the hang of it, Shaman King card game battles are fast and furious fun. Plus, the two-player Starter Pack gives you two decks to duel with and a DVD with two episodes of the animated TV show so you can see what's up.

Shaman King Dueling Weaknesses!

The biggest weakness is that there are a couple of cards that can only be used by certain shamans, so you could end up with some dud cards until you find those shaman cards to use in your decks. That and the shaman cards are these weird high-tech sliding cards, which are really cool, but they can break if you aren't careful with 'em.

The Final Word on Shaman King

It's an awesome game! You get to unleash powerful attacks on your opponents, pull incredible moves to block them and power up for super-attacks. If you're a fan of the show, you've gotta get some of these cards. If you've never heard of it, check this game out and you'll get to watch the show for free!

Shaman King Thumbs Up:

  • Fast battles with lots of attacking!
  • Power up your Shaman for a super attack.
  • Battle as your fave Shaman from the TV show.
  • Shaman King Thumbs Down:

  • The shaman "Chamber Cards" can break and don't fit into card sleeves.
  • It's tricky to keep track of your energy at first.

    Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

    The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.
