Tap into the power of the reptile gods in the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game with the new Tactical Evolution set! We review this huge new set.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Game players just got a boost with the extra-large Tactical Evolution set! It's packed with snakes, poison, dragons, E-Heroes, gods and new combos for the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game! With 90 cards, and a bunch of stuff from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX TV show, there's a lot going on in this set and we have the 411 on it for you with Gary's Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG review.

Snakes, Poison, Gods and Dragons

This set has a bunch of new stuff in it, partly because it's a super-sized set with 90 new cards! Here's what you'll get out of Tactical Evolution.
  • Cocoons - Weak monsters that can Special Summon Neo-Spacian monsters.
  • E-Heroes - Lots of new cards to power-up E-Hero decks!
  • Gemini - Summon a monster, then use your next Normal Summon to power it up!
  • Rainbow Dragon - The ultimate Gem Beast monster is printed on a special hologram card.
  • Snakes - New reptile monsters and a Venom Field Magic Card that weakens your opponents
  • Snake Gods - The ultra-powerful and ultra-rare Vennominaga and Vennominon have arrived!
  • Powerful Cards and Combos!

    This set has a heap of E-Hero, Alien and Neo-Spacian cards. It also introduces new Venom cards that weaken your opponent's creatures, especially if you manage to get Vennominon or Vennominaga - the super-rare snake gods! Crystal Beast decks get the Rainbow Dragon, a super-powerful monster with up to 11,000ATK! The Gemini monsters are ho-hum when you summon them, but you can summon them a second time to power them up. Finally, there are 10 cards in this set that have never been seen before - not even in Japan!

    Sucking so Hard It Tears Your Socks Off

    Cocoons. Why? They're weak creatures that need another card before you can use their ability to transform into other weak creatures. Lame! The fact that 10 cards in the set are super-duper rare is frustrating too. Finally, the Rainbow Dragon is so hard to summon there needs to be a special medal for players who do it.

    Full of Win or Lose?

    The new Venom deck strategy is very interesting, and there are lots of E-Hero deck boosters. However, the cocoons are useless and there are a lot of cards that are hard to use well! Tactical Evolution is decent, but doesn't really have anything super cool unless you get one of the super-uber-mega-holycow rare cards.

    Thumbs Up:

  • Venom decks - a cool new strategy.
  • Venominaga and Venominon - super-powerful snake god cards!
  • Gemini monsters get powered-up.
  • Lots of E-Hero cards.
  • Thumbs Down:

  • The cocoons are useless!
  • 10 cards so hard to get they aren't even listed!
  • A bunch of really hard to use cards.
  • Set Rating: 3

    When I hear people hating on the Wii U, I am always confused.  For gaming consoles, games, electronics, etc., I try to stay open minded.  I personally have one, and I have found hardly any problems with the system.  First, some problems with it: Only 1 player can use the hand-held screen controller, getting to some places can be hard, and looking up and down to do certain tasks such as changing your system settings can be a hassle. Some benefits of it are: having the ability to use the screen controller, original Wii remote, and any custom or official controller, they fun ability to use the tv or the controller, great games, and the ability to use the screen controller while the tv can be in use to do any other task as watch cable. I think it's a great console! Pretty good graphics and more creative games to be made. The reason that it is hated and unpopular is Nintendo's hatred against making videos on it's games. Those videos spread the knowledge of how much fun it is.
