This game is great for what it is, a cartoon/collectable cardgame turned videogame . My 6 year old loves playing and my 2 year old loves to watch. The game is a bit repetitive but the 57 trophies make it worth playing (especially if you are a trophy-hound like myself). The game is fairly simple and the battles are mini-games that make you do a bit more than throw a Bakugan onto a card and call it a day, the shaking battles actually make you sweat a little :D at lvl3. I would give it a 10 but the game is really simple and repetitive and the Bakugan collection is EXTREMELY expensive... by the time you unlock all of the Bakugan to buy them you are pretty tired of playing and your deck is unstoppable so you are winning just about every battle so it is a bit overbearing. Other than that great game playability-wise and ever better if you like Trophies!
I'm not going to lie; I had fun playing this. There's an inner child in me to begin with, so keep that in mind. However, the game was easy to learn, moderately easy to master, and fun to play if you have kids with you to cheer you on. My little 10 year old cousin had an absolute blast watching me win battles, and even when playing by myself I caught myself being amused. Regardless, the game becomes repetitive, as all you do is edit your deck, and battle. That's it. Lots of motion-control as well, so if you're an avid hater of the sixaxis controller, stay away.
Once you figure out the best methods of play/strategy, the game becomes a cakewalk. With some planning and sixaxis skills, you can win almost all battles with your eyes closed. There are no difficulty settings, nor are there any tedious trophies that will make you rip your hair out. The trophy set is pretty much beat the game, collect all bakugan/cards, and do some special requirements here and there, which can be done after you beat the game. Not difficult at all.
Length, rated using a scale that indicates time to Platinum. 1 being very short, 10 being extremely long. This is a 6, because the game will take you about 20 hours to 100%. A dedicated person could do this in a solid weekend, but it took me an entire week of on and off play. Like I mentioned earlier - the game can become repetitive, so you'll probably take breaks here and there so you won't go brain dead.
Though it can be lengthy, Bakugan is an easy platinum. If you strongly dislike anime and card games, then I suggest you pass on this to go for something else. If you're tired of shooters and violence, and you mildly enjoy anime and what not, then this might be a decent platinum to collect. If you're a trophy hunter and a fan of the series, it's a no-brainer. Definite rental.
