Yu-Gi-Oh! The Eternal Duelist Soul

released on Oct 15, 2002

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Eternal Duelist Soul is a Yu-Gi-Oh! video game for the Game Boy Advance. It is the international version of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 5 Expert 1. Gameplay is similar to standard dueling rules, except that the Side Deck allows less than 15 cards, and is more for convenience of getting to cards for your Deck than switching between duels, as CPU duels are single duels rather than matches (with some exceptions in events).

actually a really good way to experience mid 2000's Yu-Gi-Oh. The computer cheats so much though

It's time to d-d-d-d-d-d-d-duel!
You get a Mirror Force and you get a Mirror Force! Everybody has a freaking Mirror Force!

this has established itself as my game to come back to whenever i wanna play something to turn off my brain to, its nice, its simple - its just yugioh but in its earliest form basically

It aged like milk and there's better options but it's still playable.

Eternal Duelist Soul is a good option if you want to experience what YGO was like during it's earliest inception. There being no banned cards & instead having a few very powerful cards be just limited to 1 makes this game pretty funny to look at with a modern perspective of the game.
The game is slow (but that's more due to the nature of early YGO being slow) & the in-game progression feels needlessly tedious requiring you to defeat different duelists from the anime multiple times in a row to progress to the next set of duelists where you just repeat what you did before.

Mediocre, slow and rather boring. Not worth playing at all compared to the other gba games.
