If it were not for the fact I had to review the game, I likely would have plodded along never having known what the entire hubbub was all about. Well after some casual online research, I discovered Bakugan is very similar to Pokemon and is apparently the latest craze in toys for pre-teens. Like Pokemon, Bakugan is a Japanese based game which has branched out into a cartoon show, toys, clothes and now a video game. I had the opportunity to review the Xbox 360 version of the game and I must say it is not my cup of tea. It is not that Bakugan is an awful game; it is just not intended to be played by 30-something year olds."
