GX Tag Force makes great use of the PSPís screen during duels. Coming off countless GBA versions, I was floored when I saw the PSPís clean and clear layout. Cards are viewed from an isometric angle that lets you see the entire play field. The view isnít clear enough that you can read everything on the card while it is in play, though you can easily identify it by its picture (provided you know the cards that well). But, if youíre not that good, you can select any card on the field and view its stats on the left side of the screen.
Duels are just as overly dramatic as they are in the show. Every time a character draws or plays a card, a short cinema plays. When I first started playing I loved it, but it does get bothersome a few duels into the game, especially when playing longer duels.
Outside of duels, the graphics arenít mind-blowing, but look better than previous Yu-Gi-Oh! games. When talking to other characters, portraits take up the entire screen and are joined by a big text box.
Sound consists mainly of upbeat songs that fit the show. Most of the time, I was able to drown it out entirely in my mind, so it is there when you need it, but stays out of the way if you don't.
