TRACK TO YOMI (PS5)

Trek to Yomi is a visual approach

180º What a colorful and funny way to turn around and say that no one can save the world. A trip to Yomi sinks into drama and bloodshed. Devolver’s production, a cinematic samurai game, can be both original and epic while this type of story is running until it’s exhausting.

The most beautiful of the titles Be cinematic without losing the essence of the game. Inspired by the filmography of the legendary Akira Kurosawa, the game is made in black and white, has a classic frame, uses amazing sound tracks, sound design and silence in the most precise ways, and even fits the rhythm, script and typical clichés. of the genre. but the The ghost of Tsushima You did it all, didn’t you?

What sets Trek to Yomi apart from PlayStation Samurai is the gameplay and purpose of the game. It’s a title that has a cinematic signature, but doesn’t want to deviate from the classic dynamics of the game. He is not ambitious or overly ambitious; deep down he is “alone” a lateral abrasion Action with simple attacks and dynamic reconnaissance, concentrated in a first-class art package – and that’s great!

The right size movie

Trek to Yomi’s sound and artistic direction is fantastic. While the station’s still, wide-open camera constantly imagines those epic war scenes, it’s more cinematic than its high-budget rivals. And it is very interesting to interact with such a narrative, especially when the depths and mysteries are scattered everywhere.

Aesthetic elements create a very pleasant immersive experience along with playing the game. You are not in a samurai fantasy world like Tsushima or Sekiro. but in the movie. The game is direct in guiding the player and the pace of the story is enough to entertain without losing the dynamism required by the game.

Probably the only thing that’s not so good here is the military system. You have heavy attack, speed, defense, posture and skills and various movements and challenges, but it is very simple. It won’t bother you, it may take a while to master it, but after a while, you’ll know that what keeps you on the track in Yomi is all but wars.

Rating: 9/10

But make no mistake: A trip to Yomi it’s an incredible adventure and it could be among the best releases of early 2022 – not the first because it was an absurd semester, but the top 10.

It has a unique mix of movies and gameplay, simple gameplay, lots of dramas and black and white. Of course, you need to add the title to your list.

So, Trek to Yomi is the best 9 For the Legion of Heroes.
