The story mode is similar to Tag Force 4’s,
with the character allowed to go wherever they please and partner up with whoever they want to experience the game’s somewhat limited story.
The story is set in between the ending of the last game (the Earthbound Immortals arc) and before the start of the World Racing Grand Prix with a new event called the World Tag Duel Grand Prix.
Your character is still a duel obsessed male who has trouble waking up and likes the color red,
but some of the stories propose interesting theories as to why this is, proving that Konami’s sense of humor is still running strong.
The duels are as fun as ever, with over 4700 cards up to the card packs of Starstrike Blast, Duel Terminal – Raid of the Inverz!!,
Structure Deck 19: Dragunity Drive, and Extra Pack Volume 3 (info from yuigoh.wikia.com), so that means no Polar Gods or Legendary Six Samurai,
but there are still plenty of cards for you to play around with. And thanks to the game’s DP system,
you’ll have money for every card in the game before you manage to get through every single character’s heart gauge.
Two other improvements made to the game over “Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D Force” fighting Tag Force 4 is the addition of a tracking device that you can plant on any of the secondary characters to allow for easy partnering.
The second improvement is the discount trophy system.
In the previous game, it was completely random if you got one of the 5 golden figurines that the shopkeeper wants to get a 10% discount per figurine.
In this game, after you spend a set amount of money, one of the 5 will automatically appear, allowing you to easily get the discounts without worrying about the RNG being cruel to you.
Overall, I feel that Tag Force 5 is the best addition to the series yet and I recommend it to anyone interested in Yu-Gi-Oh.
