Summary: Parents need to know that Beyblade: Metal Masters is based on the line of spinning top toys as well as a TV show spinoff . In the toy franchise, players send out their tops in a plastic battle arena until only one top remains. In this video game, the tops are somewhat personified as players engage in "combat" gameplay that allows them to attack enemy tops with bright colorful effects.
Excerpt: When I first looked at Beyblade: Metal Masters I felt all warm and fuzzy inside. I played Beyblades when they first came out. My step brother and I bought a little arena and we used to spend hours upon hours launching them into the tiny plastic arena and watch them beat the tar out of each other. Things have changed since I started playing, and looking back I'm really starting to feel older than I did before this review.
Excerpt: Après un épisode Metal Fusion vraiment décevant sur DS, on pouvait espérer que le développeur Hudson Soft redresse la barre pour proposer aux nombreux fans de Beyblade une suite plus convaincante. Las, il n'en est rien comme nous allons le voir sans tarder.
