Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is a robust Yu-Gi-Oh game that’s filled to the brim with multiple different ways to play the titular card game. There are a couple minor gripes, but almost every card currently in the TCG is in the game, there’s plenty of single and multiplayer content, and the tutorials are fantastic, making Link Evolution the perfect game for lapsed duelists to use as a re-entry point to the game.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is a great compilation of the franchise's history. With tons of challenging campaign duels, duelist challenges, and battle packs, there's plenty to scratch that card game itch. Multiplayer is scarce and laggy, so I'd steer clear.

There will never be a Yu-Gi-Oh game that is quite the same as simply playing with real cards, but Legacy of the Duelist is the closest that we have ever gotten to the real thing.

Collecting the cards from any TCG series is fantastic and rewarding, but realistically not everyone can afford to participate in such a hobby.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is a festival for all fans of the series, no matter when you started. The campaigns are teeming with nostalgic duels and the variety of available cards and duelists make the hearts of fans beat faster. Only the presentation leads to some point deductions, which reduce the fun only slightly.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution definitely skews toward the hardcore fan that has kept up with the card game over the past decade, but its campaign still offers a lot for those that dropped out after the original series or are interested in seeing what’s up with 5D’s or ZEXAL.

With no microtransactions, a constant stream of cards to unlock and a streamlined recreation of all six seasons of the anime, this ranks as one of the best CCGs on Switch – if you can overlook its somewhat irksome issues.
