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.

My son received this for Christmas. He is 7 years old and loves playing the regular Bakugan game, as well as watching the DVD's of the show. So this was definitely a must have. He opened it Christmas Eve night and played it for the rest of the evening. At 3:30 in the morning, he woke me up to ask me if I thought the character Naga was on the game and then went back to sleep. On Christmas morning, he immediately went to get his DS and continued to play. It took a little coaxing (more than it should anyway) to get him to open the rest of his Christmas presents!

My son has Mario games, Kirby, Sims, Sonic, dinosaur games, etc... But this is the most excited I have seen him play a game in a while. The game is a fairly easy concept. He was able to figure it out with very little coaching from me. It is slightly different from the regular game, as there is some stylus work involved in placing your bakugan on the field before it stands and also to win the battle. He was able to master that out without any help from me. He enjoys being able to battle the characters he has seen on the show (Dan, Shun, etc...). During the game, he can also be partners with them and learn by watching how they battle.

It is great too, because it is helping build his addition skills. He can add those G power points pretty darn well for a first grader. The game actually does the math, so if your child isn't great in math, the game does the work and your child will get along just fine, but my son is now adding the numbers before the game shows them, or he is calculating his G power with his ability cards to decide which one to use.

I personally get tired of "brawling" with my son with the cards and actual Bakugan characters. I can usually muster enough excitement to play the game once or twice a day, but after that I want to try other things with him. But he is stuck in Bakugan mode. This game is a life saver for me! He get's to brawl and I don't have to play repeatedly, over and over!

I recommend this game of you have a Bakugan fanatic like I do. If not, the game may seem a bit boring.

My son loves the game. He is never bored with it like the other reviews posted. He said it has helped him learn Bakugan strategy better. It was definitely worth the money I paid. I think those who are unhappy are looking for something more than what a DS could possibly offer.

My niece wanted the Bakugan toy. Now I am left with a non-standard packaged DS game. I was expecting there to be a hard shell case inside.

When you open the cardboard flap of the outer box, the game cartridge is just sitting in there wedged in the cardboard. You lift that cardboard up, and beneath that on the bottom of the cardboard box is the pamphlet for the game.

For the money, I am very disappointed that the cartridge & pamphlet are not in a typical hard shell case as all other DS games are.

They should mention this in the product description!!!

My 10 yr old grandson enjoys this game. He loved the Bakugan that came with it. He says the game is fun but each battle in the arena gets harder and that the Bakugans don't level up enough, but he would recommend the game because it is fun battling in the arena.

good game, you don't need to buy bakugan to play you start with three bakugan and three gate cards and three ability cards. Easy to play but challenging as you go thru the game. My son likes it he is 7 1/2.

My boys both love this game. It is easy enough for my 5 year old to win some battles, yet challenging enough to keep the interest of my 8 year old. The collector bakugan was an added bonus!

I gave this game to my son for X-mas. He has been having a lot of fun with it. Our friends are buying the game for their son because he was so excited watching my son play his game.

My son got it for Christmas, he's been playing it ever since. He has gotten several games since then, but always comes back to this one. Though the graphics aren't all that great, and the sound is downright annoying to me, he likes it none the less. And that's what matters.

My son is really into Bakugan, but he said this game is the most boring game he has ever played. I wish I had bought him a Mario game in hindsight. Item shipped on time, but not early like other items had. Not very satisfied with the product.
