Overall: I hate this game, I'm not going to lie. I'm honest. My little brother bought this game, and I flat out hate it. I know you can play the game with real Yu-Gi-Oh cards, I would suggest that. I bet it's just because I have no interest in this game is all.
Gameplay: Think game is stupid, wasn't fun to me. Play the game in real life if you are into the cards and so fourth. I bet it is more enjoyable then this has been.
Graphics: Graphics are ok, nothing to be happy about. They are not horrible, so maybe that is a good thing about this game.
Sound: Sounds not bad either. That's all I have to say about that. Music isn't the best thing in the world but oh well life goes on.

Overall: This game could have been a lot better than it was, had it not been rushed. This game is perfect for Xbox Live, and it's therefore a real letdown that this feature wasn't included. As far as renting or buying, I would suggest renting, unless of course you're a huge Yu-Gi-Oh fan, in which case I don't even need to tell you to buy it.

Gameplay: In this game, you are a duelist who's sole purpose is to beat a slew of other duelists, which are, of course, spawned from the TV and manga series. It plays the exact same way as the other games, so if you've played those before, the learning curve isn't exactly steep. The game follows the rules of the actual card game, requiring you to basically knock out your opponents life points before they knock out yours. A point that makes this game slightly better than the others is that the AI "cheats" significantly less, leading to a richer gaming experience.

Graphics: This is the part where the game really falters. The card setup looks exactly like it did in the GBA version. The background is bland, Egyptian landscape, except when you summon a field spell card, which results in a psychedelic swirling of colors in the background. The fights between the monsters are horrible, as the models are poorly rendered, and look worse than many N64 games. Truly, Konami did not at all take advantage of the Xbox's superior gaming engine.

Sound: The music in this game is just kinda there. You don't really notice it unless you're paying attention, and if you are, it's nothing spectacular.
