Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3 is a Card Game video game published by Konami released on November 27, 2008 for the PlayStation Portable.
Review by DAReezan:
Ever wondered what happened to Jaden after the end of the 3rd Season of Yu-Gi-Oh GX? Yu-Gi-Oh GX Tag Force 3 takes place right after that event, lapsing over the entire 4th season of the series. If you haven’t played the 2nd or 1st game or finished the series then I wouldn’t recommend reading any further.
First things first: The cards.
Tag Force 3 increases the number of cards available to 3501, the 4th greatest amount of cards featured in a Yu-Gi-Oh game. More anime-only cards were added such as the “Clear” cards and the “Dark” cards.
Next: The Characters.
Characters from the last game make a return with the Page 1 characters now being: Neo-Jaden, Normal Jaden, Syrus, Chazz, Zane, Blair, Alexis, and Bastion. The reason why the Page 1 characters have been reduced will be addressed in the “Story” section of the review. Page 2 and Page 3 characters such as Aster Phoenix and Jesse make a return.
The exact same minigames as the last game with a single addition “Bread or ball”.
Fourth: Destiny Draw System
Destiny Draw makes a return in this game. Just a small refresh: Destiny Draw is when you pick up to 5 cards from your deck, these cards will be labeled as “Destiny Cards” and when you get into a sticky situation (loss of life points, hand, or entire field) you will be prompted with the once-per-duel chance to draw one of your 5 Destiny cards at random. If you’re not a fan of this you can always turn the feature off.
The gameplay follows that of the 2nd game. Some of the new monsters that received their own animation include “Blue-Eyes White Dragon”, “Elemental Hero Bladedge” (making a return since the 1st game.) and “Light and Darkness Dragon”. This game also features the use of Synchro monsters, it was possible to use Synchros in the first game but they were extremely rare.
