This game is a bad game now I only played the story mode but I couldn't take anymore of this game, and here is why.

First off the story mode is short and I mean really short you could probably be done with it in 1-3 hours depending on how fast you learn,

and you will have to learn fast because it doesn't give you any instructions on how to play it just throws you right into the race.

the only alright thing about the game is probably the racing,

but I'm kind of reaching on that, it's not very good but at least it's something

my score for this game is a 5 out of 10

your best bet is to rent this game and see if you like it, but to me, I would rather get the DS game as they usually hold up better to their big console counterparts

Wii Need a Real Yugioh Console Game

The things that this game has:
-Lack of cards in the card store at the beginning of the game
-Characters getting harder and harder too quickly during story mode
-I don't have much to add since I didn't get very far

The next time a Yugioh game for a Nintendo console other than the handheld consoles like the Nintendo DS is made, the guys working on it should make it like a regular Yugioh game for all systems: just playing card games.

Wheelie Breaker: For Yu-Gi-Oh Fans Only

Based on the Anime or the Magna (don't know which word applies), Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Wheelie Breaker gives the fun of a racing game and the headaches of the card game named Yu-Gi-Oh.
The idea is simple enough - go through three laps against one or more opponents on a track. Whoever crosses the finish line wins.
But there's a monkey wrench thrown into the words - namely the card game. Players summon monsters to blast the other players, lay down trap to counter another player's attack or use magic cards to improve their chances of getting first place or by improving their monsters.
The main story line has you battling against several other characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's anime, starting with the weakest characters and working your way up to the hero of the anime, Yuskie.
Or you can also play a Cup series against the AI. There are three cups: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each cup has a set number of tracks. Win enough tracks in Bronze to unlock Silver to win enough tracks in Silver to win gold.
Or you can also battle against your friends with or without AI players in a single match mode, but you can only do it off line (no on line modes here.)
One major problem - if you're not a fan of the card game, then you are going to get lost trying to understand what all these different cards do and how they make your bike perform better. (There's a lot of cards out there to be discovered) This game will not give you any help other than a basic explaination of the cards.
You heard me: there's no in game help or tutorial on how to steer your vehice or how to build a great deck or any strategy tips.
Fans of the card game will find a lot to enjoy, and they should rent this game to see if it's to their liking. Heck, some of them may actually buy it.
But for the rest of us, Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Wheelie Breaker is just too complex and convoluted to enjoy. SKIP IT.
