The game centers on the player character being pulled through time to arrive at Stonehenge circa the mid 1400s, during [[UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses the War of the Roses]]. [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfTudor Henry Tudor]], who prefers his nickname "Yugi", has sent his priest Simon [=McMooran=] to Stonehenge to summon the "Rose Duelist", who is prophesied to be TheChosenOne to turn the tide of war against the enemy Yorkists. However, Rose Crusader Seto Rosenkreuz has also arrived and offers the player to join the Yorkists and fight Yugi and the Lancastrians on their side. Both sides task the player to infiltrate the enemy's territory and duel their elite commanders to recover the [[PlotCoupon "Rose Cards"]] from the other side. Each side has 8, and together the cards are said to unlock great power.

* MagikarpPower: Leveling up a monster card's rank unlocks special abilities when that card is made your Deck Leader. Low level monsters are harder to rank up, but often get additional abilities to compensate for it.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Rosenkreuz Christian Rosenkreuz]] has nothing to do with the Wars of the Roses or Richard III, and according to legends lived 50+ years before the Wars of the Roses. However, as the Fridge page for the game goes into detail on, the symbolisms behind the Order of the Rose Cross Rosenkreuz founded, Seto's motives in this game, and the acknowledgment this is AlternateHistory, actually make Rosenkreuz's presence surprisingly appropriate.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Invoked in gameplay. By joining Kaiba's side, you can change history and defeat Yugi's army. It helps that his argument is very convincing.

* AndYouWereThere: ''Everyone''. There's even hints that the game is ''canon'' to the series and the characters are past incarnations of their modern day selves.

* TheAllSeeingAI: While most ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' games in the pre-DS era were rife with this anyway, Pegasus--a frequent offender where this trope is concerned--was likely intentional given the powers of his [[MagicalEye Millennium Eye]]. As such, [[ArtificialBrilliance Pegasus is one of the few CPU opponents who doesn't regularly fall for the player's traps and bluffs]], instead carefully calculating terrain and card effects before making his move.

* DirtyCoward: Bonz and Bakura use very low deck costs to force you to use weaker monsters. If you lose to Bakura, he lampshades it and asks if you think him a coward.

Gameplay is quite different from other ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' games. Players control a Deck Leader on a large tiled board, and can only play one card a turn on a square adjacent to their Deck Leader. Once in play their cards, be they Monster, Magic or Trap, can move around the board freely until an opponent's card moves against them, revealing the Monster or activating the Magic or Trap effect.

The tiled board can be terraformed with Field Cards, with appropriate power boosts given for monsters battling on them. Players move their cards around the board, attacking opposing monsters or attacking the opposing Deck Leader directly, to deplete the opponent's Life Points. Otherwise the usual EarlyInstallmentWeirdness of the early ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' video games, particularly freely fusing cards into new ones and using power-up cards on monsters they shouldn't effect, is in play.
