Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds Wheelie Breakers 


I was not sure why I was the member of Family Friendly Gaming to be blessed with the reviewable copy of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers. Yu-Gi-Oh is a card battling game with all kinds of strategy, and I am a sports gamer. I turned the game on to find out this is a cel shaded motorcycle racing game. It incorporates the card battling into the game play. Build your own deck, and attack the other racers in an attempt to be the first across the finish line. Getting hit from attacks can spin your motorcycle around or even make you come to a complete stop. Cards can give the player a speed boost, or be a monster that is used to shoot at the competition.

The cel shaded style looks a little weird to me personally. I have seen it in some games, but not a lot of sports ones. Sports games generally look realistic. So my first impression of the graphics in Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers was not a positive one. There is a lot of shooting at the other characters, and this is rewarded. I saw at least one female character dressed a little on the wild side. The majority of characters were wearing the appropriate level of clothing.

Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers has a variety of music that I found interesting. The revving of the engines worked for me. I liked the voice acting, even if it was a little limited. This Wii game has plenty of characters who are polite and respectful to one another. I enjoyed that aspect of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers.

Four players can use Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers at the same time. There are over 125 Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s cards, and multiple play modes. This Wii game also has a decent amount of characters that are unlockable.

Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers is one super tough video game. I had heard Konami wanted to reach a wider audience with this Wii game. Problem is the difficulty is so high that many members of the family will quickly give up on this game. Hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh fans are not going to be as interested because of the racing aspect. Sports gamers like myself may also be turned off due to difficulty. If there had been a much easier setting I would have had fun.

Competing against others and winning through the usage of card monsters is the main lesson I got from this Wii game. I found Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers to be an interesting attempt at mixing genres that fell just a little short.
