Portable version of the famed Bakugan game!
on November 11, 2009
I gave my daughter this game for her birthday, and pre-ordered this just in time. The cartridge is accompanied by a Special Collector's Edition Figure Naga with a Gate Card.
The premise of the game is just like the one with action figures, Gate Cards, and Special Ability Cards. You work on customizing your character based upon their looks and clothing. One limitation of the game is that you can only create one character at a time. You can progress in Story Mode by participating in battles, where you win points to upgrade your Bakugan, get additional Bakugan and get Gate/Ability Cards.
The graphics are above average for the DS platform. Game play, if you're a Bakugan Fan, is enjoyable. You choose which cards to play and then roll your Bakugan in the arena to collect G-Power and Additional Points before you land on a Gate Card. When the opponent rolls and lands onto the same Gate Card, the battle begins. As opposed to the figurine/card game where battles are won based upon point totals alone, your points are tallied based upon the Power Rating and then you will perform a battle using hand/eye coordination to win. The best of 5 battles wins the match.
My daughter says she loves the game since it is so fun. Her only complaint is not being able to have more than one profile.
Overall, this is a fun game, even for me. Coupled with the Special Edition Bakugan, this makes my daughter very happy.
