Story
The story of Bakugan: Battle Brawlers revolves around a set of metallic cards that mysteriously fall from space. On finding them, kids from around the planet discover that the cards also provide access to a variety of monsters that can be pitted against each other and so develop a game based on the cards and monsters and set up tournaments. One group of these kids, who name themselves the "Bakugan Battle Brawlers" and who are led by Dan, find that the cards also serve as a link to a parallel dimension known as Vestroia. Here they discover that the game and its monsters that they are dedicated to mastering is tied to an imbalance of positive and negative energy in Vestroia. This imbalance must be corrected to avoid unspeakable consequences for Vestroia, and since a link has been made to the Earth, eventually the kids' home as well.

Gameplay
Those who have played the popular Bakugan card game might already have an idea of how gameplay works in Bakugan: Battle Brawlers, but the video game adds several new elements. The game is something of a cross between marbles and a live action card game. To get started you'll first need to enter your name, select an attribute and create your character. Then you'll be ready to explore the world of Bakugan. If you can't wait to start battling your friends, then head straight to the Battle Arena, but if you want to be the best you have to learn the rules. The goal of Bakugan: Battle Brawlers is to win the game by collecting three "gate cards." Gate cards are collected by winning battles against opponents. As a starting move each player sets down one metallic gate card. Then you're ready to roll your Bakugan, which is in the form of a ball. After throwing you can steer your Bakugan around the environment so that it lands on the perfect card and collects powerups. The aim is to get your Bakugan to stand on a card, and that happens when they roll over it slowly. Once the Bakugan stands, it will transform into Battle Mode. Now you're ready to battle. A battle begins when two Bakugan from different players stand on the same gate card. The gate card then opens and both bakugan transform into Monster Mode, and are ready to fight. The gate card can add "G-Power" to a Bakugan according to its world attribute (color) and can also change the rules of the battle. Players can also boost their G-power by doing well in battle. The Bakugan with the highest G-power at the end of the battle wins.

After battling, you can also use the points you have won to upgrade your Bakugan, acquire new in-game items, engage in Tag Team or Battle Royale action, or hone your skills by practicing your moves and strategy with Dan.

Luckily I rented this title from Gamefly and didn't buy it. My son is really into Bakugan so I know how the rules of the card/toy game go. This game has a big departure from the standard rules. Your Bakugan's G-Power really doesn't come into play much because victory is determined on how quickly and accurately you can use the stylus. The G-Power will give you an edge but you can't win a battle without doing the "mini-game" with the stylus (rubbing it back and forth quickly, tapping icons, or following an icon around a track). This eliminates some of the strategy from this game that is present in the card/toy game. Still... I found it mildly addictive but I can see that I'd get tired of it quickly. Kids who are fans of the TV show will probably love it because it has their favorite characters and their Bakugan. However, kids who play the card game will probably be dissatisfied because of the way the game departs from the rules they know.

My little cousin love Bakugan. I saw this game and thought it would be perfect for him. He loves his NDS and this game was great for his game collection. His mom says he plays this everyday. He loves it and I am glad I purchase this for him.

My 5 and 8 year olds love this game, they play it often. They had to figure out how to play it first but since then they play it regularly. I would recommend this for passing the time on those long trips.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers for the Nintendo DS is interesting, the outcome of the battle is in the hands of the DS stylus. G-Power does play somewhat of a factor, though. The part that makes the Story Mode interesting is you get to be thrown in the rankings with the brawlers from Bakugan: Season 1. Great game!

We have this game for the Wii and the DS. My 7 year-old son loves it! He is addicted to it and we have to restrict his playing time or it's all he would do all day. He is a very big Bakugan fan and doesn't mind that the video game is not how you play the regular card game - if it were, I think it would be a very boring video game. Definitely worth it's price ($10-15) for Wii or DS. The benefit of having it on the DS is now he's not hogging the Wii from the rest of the family :)

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 liked the game, but i broke 3 styluses on it. the battle is eventually decided by a mini-game like thing played against your opponent with things like "rub the screen" where you really have to try hard to keep up. my styluses shattered under the strain later in the game when the battles got tough.

you have been warned, now enjoy!
