So I have a big dark secret that I am going to share with you all, I’m a huge fan of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise all because of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses. I played that game back when I was a kid and have been hooked ever since. I have been hoping that they would make another game for PS3, but since they haven’t I suppose a Facebook game is the next best thing. Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM is ready for public release. An entirely new and exclusive Facebook, Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM combines the most popular elements of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise with the social gaming platform.
This exciting new game includes a compelling storyline, more than 300 specially-modified cards and the unique opportunity for players to Duel their friends. An intense and addictive burst of fun, players will have the chance to progress smoothly through challenging levels set against a number of intricately designed backdrops. BAM boasts useful tutorials that provide hints and tips while various Power-Ups and rewards can be used to further the player’s progress in the game.
To ensure the player is always fully prepared for battle against both in-game opponents and friends, Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM boasts a number of Deck-building functions. A player can either create his own personalized Deck from the cards available or use the insta-deck function to automatically generate the best Deck for the Duel. With all these features Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM remains simple, engaging and accessible.
So is it any good? Why yes it is, in fact I’m playing it as I write this. Does the game stay exactly true to the original, for the most part I think it does as much as any Facebook game can. As I said, Yu-Gi-Oh! purist may not like but I enjoyed it and its much better than Mafia Wars or Farmville to me.
