Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist

Oh, nostalgia. When I saw the price tag on this game I thought that it was going to be a massive ripoff. Previous games in the series, although fun, have never really lived up to the price tag. I am very happy to report that this time I was wrong, this game is basically how all card games should be played. 

There are various multiplayer and single player modes throughout the game. You can play a campaign mode which allows you to go through the story as you know it from each of the shows. You can take on every iconic duel from each and any of the series. The more interesting part about that (for me) is that you can either compete in these duels with the icon decks used at that time, or you can use a custom deck of your choosing. 

This game offers over 6,600 cards to choose from, which is the most amount of cards ever included in a Yu-Gi-Oh! game. They are not all unlocked at the start, though. Much like the real world card game, you need to purchase booster packs. You can earn money for these throughout the campaign and by winning duels.

You can create your own deck or use other game modes to face other duelists including players around the world through online gameplay. There are also add-ons you can purchase that add duels to the Campaign and Challenge modes and have premade decks. The add-ons are from multiple versions of the show including Duelist Kingdom, GX, and Zexal. 

You can play through each campaign mode twice, which is a new refreshing way to look at things. You can play through normally as the story takes you down memory lane, or you can play it through as the opposition. Once you have defeated a person in story mode, you can flip the duel around and play it again, however this time you would play it as the person you beat.

This game is perfect for a fan of any of the Yu-Gi-Oh series. You can play with the latest cards, or go back to the old school days and play with the cards most of us grew up with. 

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy costs $19.99 with each expansion pack costing $4.99. You also have an option to try it out for free through the demo.
