Yu-gi-oh GX is the next generation of Yu-Gi-Oh! Let’s see how it holds up to its predecessors.
Everyone knows that GBA Expert Yu-Gi-Oh! Games don’t have good stories, and this game is no exception. Yugi, Joey, and Kaiba’s original cast have been replaced by Jaden, Chumley, and Syrus’s cast. No more saving the world, now you are at school and learning how to be the best. But an unbiased opinion would say that this works out nicely. It works for this kind of game, and so it shall be acceptable to most people. It follows the show, and the characters are very like their show counterparts. 7/10
The Gameplay is the old classics, with a twist. Collecting cards, buying packs, and scheduling duels are just some of the many million new twists to the game. Boxes are unlocked one by one, and specific criteria must be met before an individual group is opened. There are in-game ‘events’ that make it more exciting. These can also produce free cards and, most importantly, E-mail addresses. E-mail is only used for six characters(Jaden, Syrus, Chumly, Zane, Alexis, and Chazz), but they allow you to schedule duels in the week when you would not usually be allowed to duel. They say yes most of the time, but there are some exceptions. They always say no on a Tuesday morning and a Friday Exam Day.
There is also an in-game tutorial, which is very long and detailed, helping anyone new. (A little secret: Beat Bastion and Alexis 3 times and read all the tutorials. You may find something new in the shop…)
Speaking of Exams, that leads me on to my next topic, exams. Exams are taken every month (with one or two exceptions), and they can change the whole game. They can change your dorm and, more importantly, your rank. There is a system of Ranking in this game. They range from Dropout boy to King of games.
