I was impressed with the ease of use at the site and the nice appearance of the cards and the menus. The navigation could be a little more streamlined between the lobbies, but mostly everything works like it should. There are very strict rules on acceptable behavior, the effectiveness of which will remain to be seen, as the site is still so new. Overall, I was impressed and believe it's a worthwhile investment of time and money for fans of Yu-Gi-Oh!, especially for those who can't get anyone local to play with them very often.

Now you can take your game you play with your local friends and now play with people around the world. Instead of thinking local think global. To name a few countries that you can play the card game against are German, Italian and Japanese people. Sadly there were a couple of things that I didn’t like. After each duel you and your opponent decide on how well each other did. This to me is just not a good idea. What if you know you did a good job and the other person rated you as badly? Also I think that the game could have used a Practice Mode for those who have never played before and are just starting. I am new to the game and I lost 12 times before I got the hang of it. For those who want to bring there Yu-Gi-Oh card playing up to the next level Yu Gi Oh Online is definitely for you.

Die Gegnerzuteilung ist an einigen Stellen ein wenig unfair, doch die große Kartenauswahl, die strategische Herausforderung und die Sammelsucht durch Spielgewinne sorgen für eine hohe Langzeitmotivation.
GameSpot (Jul 05, 2005)
The game comes with a host of caveats, not the least of which includes a gameplay model that's not terribly inviting to beginners, as well as an unconventional pricing model. However, by nailing the core mechanics of the card game and marrying them with a functional online component, Yu-Gi-Oh! Online does just enough to please the devoted Yu-Gi-Oh! fans that are already out there, but not much more.

If you're a fan of YGO then nothing I say will dissuade you from getting this game, and in a way I do feel somewhat jealous that I can't get excited about this game as some kids obviously will. Think of me while you're crippling your opponent with the Magic Ghost and I'll think of you while I'm inhaling my 20th hot chicken wing with a song in my heart and a tear in my eye.

Fans af offline-kortspillet kan finde anvendelse for online-udgaven til træningsformål, men alle andre opfordres til at finde et bedre spil. Selv Windows' indbyggede Hjerterfri er bedre designet.
