Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition is a Game Boy Advance game based on the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game and TV series
There is no story in this game and to my knowledge, there have only been a few Yu-Gi-Oh! titles like the PS2s Duelist of the Roses that are actually story-based. However there is a point to this game, and that’s to duel. You’re not Yugi Motor and you’re not Seto Kaiba… You’re you, and it’s your job to navigate around the map looking for opponents to duel for cards.
Here’s where the fun really begins! Basically, you need to duel opponents and beat them in order to win cards and to bring up what we call a ‘booster pack’ selection screen where you get the opportunity to select a picture and upon selecting it you get some cards from that type of set. The objective in this game is to make the best possible deck you can and to duel all the best opponents for a shot at getting all the best cards.
You can customize your own deck and with the number of cards that are available to you in the entire game, you’ll surely be occupied for hours on end and entertained at the highest possible level. Characters from the TV series like Yugi, Kaiba, Tristan, Mai, Joey, and Marik also make an appearance, Tea being my favorite character. They’ll keep you pumped up for the duel with their witty comments of sheer determination (Rare Hunter seems to think he has the best deck, as always…). Basically what you put into this game will determine what you get out of it.
Since it has no real-time action, WWE has to have very excellent control. The game is mainly menu-based and the control pad almost always does a good time of navigating the menus and duel options. The only control problem is that when you lay down some traps like Call of the Haunted, the game will ask you if you want to activate them nay times a turn, which can get very annoying.
