Trek to Yomi is one of those games that caught my attention this year. The way it was presented actually looks so incredible to me: just pure black and white samurai game. This game showed a lot of potential in many different ways. The graphics actually look so decent, especially the cinematography. I honestly had a high expectations for this game since I've got to play Japanese-like games like Ghost of Tsushima and Sekiro. This one is different. The story is somewhat mediocre, the prologue seems promising and eventually turned into a horror-like one with creepy Japanese folk-lore references behind it. The gameplay seems fine and needs a lot of polishing. The fighting mechanics are so stiff and lacking with a feeling of satisfaction. I love slashing enemies with fashion. The parry system doesn't actually work at times. Overall, this game still needs to be developed further though I can see that it showed a lot of potential.

Combat sections were more sparse and sluggish than anticipated, but that’s fine since it’s so easy to sink into the game’s world. If you’re okay with a samurai game that’s more focused in being an audiovisual and emotional spectacle, then Trek to Yomi is absolutely worth your time.

Similarly, the combat is super slick, stylish and gratifyingly nuanced, that it will please many who beg for a finely-honed, lethal and precise katana-thrusting gameplay core. Unfortunately, the repetition of enemies and their compositions do get in the way as there isn’t enough diversity in the enemy variety nor the deviation to manipulate curiosity in interesting ways, but ultimately if you want a brief, beautiful and brutal action game, you should certainly take this trek.

Trek to Yomi is a katana-sharp experience that impresses with its flashy skills — use the joyous time it gives you well.
