Game Vortex writes: "Do you remember the beginning of the inexorable spread of Pokemon? What about the launch of Yu-Gi-Oh? Trendy games and toys always have ardent fans under the age of 10 as their leading indicators, and so it's no surprise that if you ask a boy between the ages of 5 and 10 what card game they're into right now, you're just as likely to hear about Bakugan: Battle Brawlers as you are those other two. The appeal is obvious once you see what's involved. A combination of marbles and traditional collectible card games, Bakugan is a great idea on top of a great idea. The translation from toy to television has gone extremely well, and now we have the videogame. Having spent hours with the toys, cards, and show, we can say that Bakugan: Battle Brawlers for Xbox 360 is the best thing yet to happen to this franchise. It provides an awesome introduction to the game for those not yet aware of Bakugan and is a great way for fans to get deeper than ever before."
