BEYBLADE: Evolution Review – 3DS

Game Chronicles
6 December 2013
  • Excerpt: To Bey or Not to Bey? That is the question that I asked myself as I dove into BEYBLADE: Evolution for the Nintendo 3DS. Now going into this review, I can easily say that I know only two things about BEYBLADE. One – it’s a popular cartoon on TV and two – it’s a crazy popular toy brand that’s sold millions of what looks very much like a wicked looking top with real and mythological animals as their themes.

Beyblade Evolution (3DS)

21 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Beyblade has been around for a while and has numerous DVD and accessories available for it. If you're like me and new to this craze, it's basically top battles where your top must out spin or knock its opponent out of the stadium.    The Beyblades are completely customizable and depending on the parts you use, you can increase its attack, defense and stamina.
  • Pros: Fun gameplay that can be enjoyed by those not familiar with the toys or DVDs
  • Cons: Some of the mini-games require you to be familiar with Beyblade parts and models

Review: Beyblade Evolution: Collector's Edition (Nintendo 3DS)

Diehard GameFAN
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Beyblade Evolution attempts to make use of the Nintendo 3DS hardware to fashion a game around a bunch of kids battling with sophisticated tops, though it fails to be engaging. Using the 3DS system as a ripcord was a neat idea, but the 3D effect becomes skewed during movement and there’s not much else to do once the battle starts besides wait.

Beyblade: Evolution

Digital Chumps
19 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Unless you’re a big fan of the franchise, I can’t recommend buying Beyblade Revolution, especially at its suggested retail price. Its deceptively frustrating, promising a simple video game replication of real-life Beyblade that resides nowhere close to simple, especially as you begin. If you’re able to master to the clunky mechanics, look forward to a repetitive experience that, again, will only offer pleasure to the purest of diehards.

Take It For a Spin

18 November 2013
  • Excerpt: When the signature phrase of a show or game is, 'Let it rip!' you know that the writers are either confident, or attempting a tongue in cheek piece of irony. On one hand, it's rather ingenious that the characters of Beyblade use, 'Let it rip' as the signature phrase because they pull a ripcord to launch their Spinfighters, while on the other hand...Similar phrasing is used to describe when one passes wind.

BEYBLADE: Evolution (3DS) Review

8 November 2013
  • Excerpt: BeyBlades was a franchise that really took off at that awkward phase where everything was too “lame” for me and I had dumped my previously cherished franchises like Pokemon and Digimon (only to pick up the former several years later). I never understood BeyBlade, my experience with the franchise was very limited, if non-existent.

Beyblade Evolution

Family Friendly Gaming
3 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Beyblade Evolution is the best Beyblade game I have ever played. To be fair there have not been many Beyblade games released in the video game industry. The few that were - well they were not that good. Beyblade Evolution captures the essence of Beyblade. How do I know? I play with real Beyblades with my brother.

Expert Review

Nintendo Life
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Beyblade Evolution attempts to offer an authentic video-game rendition of the popular toy franchise, but fails to match the excitement of the real-life experience. While it makes the most of the unique functionality that the 3DS has to offer, it’s woefully repetitive and quickly becomes a monotonous affair.

Not the greatest evolution

Pocket Gamer
13 November 2013
  • Conclusion: A bit of good fun that's let down by its ambition for innovation. Still, it's worthwhile if you're a fan of the series, but it's probably best enjoyed with the 3D off
