Want to know a way to become a better player without leaving your home? If you happen to have a Wii you can play the latest game available, Yu-GI-Oh: 5d Duel Transer
You see I bought this game since I’m not able to go play with my friends all the time. This will allow me to keep true to number 6 of the 10 resolutions for becoming a better yu-gi-oh player in 2011. I can stay focused on my target, which is to become a better player. Remember the more you play the better you get.
I’ve never played any of the previous video games, so I really didn’t know what to expect from it. I was hoping it would be like a real duel. Guess what!!! It is!!! I’m really impressed with the game play. It does resemble an actual duel. Even up to how you get your cards for your deck.
You start off with a starter deck and some money, they call it LP. In order to get new cards you have to duel people and earn some points, which you can use to buy packs. The type of packs you can buy depends on who you have defeated in a duel. If you beat officer Trugg, you can purchase Duelist Genisis packs which you can pull his amazing syncro monster Goyo Guardian. Once you defeat Yusei you can pull his star synchro monster Stardust Dragon. The same goes for Jack Atlas with Red Dragon Archfiend.
The packs you can choose from range from Dark Beginngs all the way to the most recent Starstrike Blast. I wish I could pull cards in real life like I do in the game. I say this becuase I pulled a Pot Of Duality in the first 5 packs I bought of Duelist Revolution. And you know that is one of the 5 top cards from Duelist Revolution.
The type of decks you play again in the begining are not that great. But remember you don’t have that many great cards in your deck to begin with. As you start to win more duels and get better cards, your oppenents decks become better too. So the game keeps it a fair battle.
One of the best things I have learned from the game is the timing of certain cards. Meaning when can you play certain cards. It actually reminds you of either a quick spell or trap you can play at that moment. Having it pop up all the type can be a bit annoying after a while but you can change that setting. I have not since I really enjoy the feature. It has won me some duels due to me forgetting I could use a card to stop what they were doing. So it’s a great learning tool too.
The only thing I disliked about the game is that it comes installed with the banned list prior to September 1. So you can play with Heavy Storm, Mind Control, Rescue Cat, etc… So you can’t play all your spell and trap cards in fear of getting hit with the storm. Funny how one card actully changes how people play. I’ve seen the true power of heavy storm in the game.
Now if you have WiFi you can install the latest banned list. So it’s not really an issue unless you don’t have WiFi.
The game can help you become a better player because you can build any deck you want to test play with and against. Decks like Blackwing’s, Lightsworn, GBs, gravekeepers or whatever you want to try. You can figure out their weaknesses and see what their big plays are, so you know how to stop them. You may also just wanna play them without having to buy them in real life. You can test them out to see if you like them before spending $100ish dollars on the key cards and hating it.
I almost forgot, you also get 3 cards. They are not the greatest cards in the world. But you can only get these cards when you purchase the game. The cards are Ape Fighter, Roaring Earth and Clsed Forest. They all deal with beast type monsters.
I bought mine when it first came out a couple of weeks ago for about $35.00 with shipping. That is much cheaper that what I would have paid at the retail store. They sell it for $39.99 plus tax. So that would come out to about $45.00 with tax.
Just click on the picture on the left or the link below to see where I bought it at. They may even have it cheaper than what I paid for it now.
If you have a Wii and want to improve your game play and become a better player, you have to buy this game. It’s a must have in your yu-gi-oh tool box.
