YMMV: Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists Of The Roses
  • Critical Dissonance: The game got mixed reviews, but it still became a Greatest Hits title with over a million copies sold.
  • Critic Proof: Likely the reason for the above. It was the first Yu-Gi-Oh! video game for the Playstation 2, released in 2001 at the height of the franchise's popularity — it was going to sell no matter what critics said.
  • Game Breaker: A whole lot, the worst of them being very difficult to obtain, but the biggest one has to be Darkness Approaches. It flips everything on the field face-down, meaning flip effects can be recycled. A good number of cards power up themselves when they're flipped face-up, such as Wood Remains and Mystical Elf. Not only that, Fiend Reflection #2 lets you play another card the turn it's flipped, and even worse, Magician of Faith and Mask of Darkness can recycle spell cards. Including Darkness Approaches, which then flips them face-down, creating an endless cycle. Admittedly this is a card you need to be very lucky to obtain.
