Legacy of the Duelist was a refreshing Yu-Gi-Oh experience. It's fun, it's addicting, and at the cheap price of $19.99, you'd be crazy not to pick it up. I'd highly recommend you get your game on, because it's time to D-D-D-D-DDDDD-DUEL! (I couldn't resist.)
From its fun comprehensive story mode, to skill testing drafts, and even competitive online play, Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist caters to both fans of the card game as well as newcomers.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist is the ultimate version of arguably one of the best card duelling games on the planet. Essentially a virtual version of the real thing, it probably won't entice those who don't like the franchise, but for die-hard fans and interested newcomers, this is a game that offers unlimited hours of battling fun. If you've ever enjoyed Yu-Gi-Oh!, you owe it to yourself to give this a chance.
Whether you watched Yu-Gi-Oh! a decade ago or still enjoy the card game today, Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist is a nostalgic goldmine of memorable characters and monsters.
Konami would do well in scouting out a new development team to handle the next Yu-Gi-Oh! game. With the last couple being workmanlike but unremarkable efforts, it's difficult to shake the feeling that without an overhaul the star of this particular CCG is only going to fade further. And that would be a pity, because the core card game remains one of the most strategic that we've ever seen.
