As one of the most anticipated games in this May, Game4V put a lot of hope on May 5 and indeed in the first 2 hours Trek To Yomi was very attractive but then the game did not keep the style. degree.
If you’ve watched the trailers that the game has released before, you will know how impressive the graphics in the game are when the game uses black and white tones and film grain effects as the main theme to create a feeling. cinema like the Japanese samurai movies of the early 20th century. In this respect, Trek To Yomi did not disappoint Game4V when every scene in the game is very beautiful right from the first scene that you step out of martial arts. On the way, 80% of you will have to admire the scene witnessed, not stopping there in the first 2 levels of the game, there is no shortage of old country paintings that you often see in movies like the vast rice fields. ladder, or view the peaceful village from the top of the mountain. Even the encounters with enemies are very delicately designed by the game because they are not simply just putting two characters on any background and then letting them fight each other like other 2D games do. There are times when you look out of the window of a villager’s house to watch the battle or sometimes the camera will be placed at an angle under the field to help you not get bored. The artistic use of black and white tones is one thing, the characters in the game are also well taken care of. Maybe many of you would expect samurai with shiny armor with cool masks, but that’s not the time. Any samurai in the past could afford to equip such armor, but most of them will wear colorful clothes (even though the game is only black and white) so it must be said that the game team did a great job in this game. Learn about Japanese history. Besides the image, the sound of the game is also invested quite well, although there are not too many sound effects used inside, during 2 hours of playing the game I was only next to crying, talking, and sound. damn, the thing you most often hear is the fiddle that makes the space of the game already very gloomy and adds a ghostly part to create a very indescribable feeling.
The plot of Trek To Yomi will revolve around a young swordsman named Hiroki was unable to fulfill his promise to his late master to protect their village. He had to go to the edge of life and death to find the absolute balance of body and soul so that he could defeat the evil forces to rebuild the peaceful village. The game’s plot sounds quite simple and one-dimensional, but the way the game is presented is very good. Throughout the game, you will witness many scenes of unfortunate life being ravaged by war, the thing that Game4V remembers most is the scene of a family holding each other in despair when all they had was lost. the robbers took it all. Having to see so much pain and loss that is partly his fault, Hiroki will slowly change himself so that he can become a better person.
Unfortunately, although it has been supported by images and a very good plot, unfortunately the gameplay of the game is not what Game4V expected. Trek To Yomi has tried to add depth to its gameplay by adding more 3D scenes for players to explore, to be fair this is or is not because it has neither depth nor lack. There are a lot of extra quests, the game doesn’t allow the player to go back to the completed screen, making this move only create a feeling of fatigue and pressure when trying to find all the hidden items. The puzzles in the game are also very simple and you almost don’t have to brainstorm much and you can freely try again and again, the game is also quite short, a normal player only needs 4-5 hours to play. finish the game in medium mode but luckily there are several options with different endings that make Trek To Yomi somewhat replayable for gamers. That is if you still feel like playing the game again, because the combat system of the game is quite boring. Trek To Yomi owns for itself a very diverse system of enemies, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, if you are not careful, they can bring you to the worst light after a combo only. To fight them you will have in your hands the weapons in turn are swords, bows, darts, guns for swords you will have a lot of different combos to perform but that’s when your enemies stand still because The control mechanism and the set of these combo buttons are quite inadequate, often making you turn away from the enemy. The only two skills that Game4V finds useful are flips and counterattacks, one is to shorten the distance from the enemy as well as dodge the attacks that can’t be blocked, the other you just stretch the time to counterattack and everything will be in place. . This invisibly turns Trek To Yomi into a training ground for counterattacks, if not for the rest of the game, I would probably have abandoned it because the combat mechanics were so boring.
Trek To Yomi reminds me of a game released a long time ago, Ryse Son Of Rome when both gave players a great audiovisual part but the bad combat mechanics broke a lot. rank. The game is only suitable for those of you who are passionate about Japanese culture or are fans of Samurai-themed movies, otherwise you should just buy the game to kill time, especially if you own a PC Games Pass. can own the game for free.
