n the time it takes you to say “Yu-Gi-Oh! World Wide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel” you could have gone out and purchased this game. I’m assuming that if you are reading this review then you have some interest in either Yu-Gi-Oh! or strategy card games, in which case I can recommend this title without reservation. It’s not exactly a sequel, but more of a standalone expansion pack with improved gameplay. Get it!
To close, Stairway is simply what a game is supposed to be. No tricks, gimmicks, and no need for hype. It's pure, addictive, mind-buzzing gameplay. Much more than a Pokémon wannabe, the Yu-Gi-Oh! series of games is one that'll be played and remembered for a very long time.

Yu-Gi-Oh Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel is up there on the list of "Longest Titles For A Mass-Market Product In Recent Memory," but it’s also a pretty deep update of the popular 2002 release, The Eternal Duelist Soul.
Les vrais fans qui souhaitent aller au-delà des simples Trading Cards ou qui rechignent à se ruiner dans l'achat de booster auront tout intérêt à se pencher sur cette très bonne conversion GBA de Yu-Gi-Oh!. La cartouche contient près d'un millier de cartes identiques à celles qu'on trouve dans le commerce et permet des duels à deux joueurs en link.
This game will not stun players with its graphical qualities, but rather is a challenging mental outing which incorporates both random chance and some strategic card play. There is a nice variety of cards to choose from and each battle can last for a long time if the cards are well played. But that may not be enough to make this a strong enought reason to do anything other than rent this game.
As far as video game representations of collectible-card games go, Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel is a serviceable, lightweight entry in the genre. It stays true enough to the source material, which should please fans, but the game's rather dry presentation may make it inaccessible to outsiders, and the fundamental mechanics of the card game may be too simplistic for collectible-card game enthusiasts who've moved on to deeper, more complex games.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel isn't for everyone. If you eat, drink, and sleep dueling, you'll be jacked to be able to get your Yu-Gi-Oh! on 24/7. If you've never done any dueling before, though, you might want to start with the card game. Learning the rules is easier when you're playing with another person, and the cart's lackluster graphics don't do the wide variety of cards much justice - not even Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
