4.8 out of 5 stars
Yu-Gi-Oh! Tag Force 4 (PSP)
Price:£29.95+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

on 8 February 2010
Tag Force 4 is the first installment on the PSP that follows the 5D's set of characters in Yu-Gi-Oh. It makes a refreshing change from the last three Tag Force games which were based on the GX series, all of which were basically the same. The game includes the new story, new areas of interest and new characters and a vast collection of new cards, with over 3500 different cards now available.

The graphics are improved over the previous games, with better character and environmental detail put in, though the environments are also a lot more grey and gritty, so it's not as visually appealing as the previous games. The duel field has changed slightly, lifepoints are shown on a dial, like a speedometer. The amount of stars a monster has is also shown as a number over the card in your hand and on the field, to make things easier.

The sound is as you'd expect. Nothing spectacular but then it's not so bad for background music either.

The story is pretty much the same as the previous games- kinda lame. You go around the city, dueling people until you fill a heart, then play through their section of the story in an event. There are lots of characters that you can do this with, much like in the previous games.

The gameplay is where the game really shines. At least, if you like Yu-Gi-Oh games, which is part of the point of buying the games. As there are so many cards to collect, and so many new cards added, the gameplay just keeps getting better and better. The addition of Synchro monsters also adds a new dimension to gameplay. You can build many more deck recipes now, and enemies have more varied decks than before, though there is still the problem of 'cheating' cards and overpowered decks, coupled with extremely poor partner AI and excellent opponent draws, as with every other game. Whilst this isn't a huge deal, it does detract from the fun of the game, and if it wasn't for all the extra cards, one of the previous Tag Force games would be better as they just seemed more balanced.

In conclusion, this game is a Yu-Gi-Oh game like any other, with extra cards, more features such as Synchro summoning and the increased support from it being the newest Tag Force game make it well worth a buy if you enjoyed the previous games, or just want to get into the Yu-Gi-Oh games.

Okay basically, it is a good game and once again konami have made a good effort in making a large environment for the player to explorer and meet opponents and allies. It's more open-world than the GX-tag force series, as rather than starting from the beginning to start different characters stories, you instead try to make friends with several characters (much like part 1 of GXTF1), filling up 4 hearts till the maximum. There is a greater variety of minigames in the game too to make it more challenging.

The tedious classes have been removed naturally, as it does not fit the context of this story. I was personally disappointed that turbo duels and speed spells were not introduced and that the card converter appears to not have made a returning appearance, so now if you have more than 3 of each card, they are essentially useless (or such is the impression). The opponents tend to follow one strategy however, Synchro summons. this makes the game rather uniform, and the introduction of new strategies is rather limited.

In conclusion, this was worth the buy but it's not that different from the other games in the series no matter how different the cover and looks differ. if you wanted it for the updated cardlist, i advise buying it or perhaps skipping this one to get 5DTF5.

Good game :)

The first in the 5D series of the tag force series an introducing the new at the time synchro summons this game offers even more exceptional 3D summons for the main characters ace cards than the previous but still lacks nintendos all card 3d animation which is a shame but doesnt harm the game to much, this games over all story is soo much better than the previous in the series an it allows for multiple story lines to happen separately within the game the game follows the first 2 series of the 5d manga incorporatin certain aspect in the game the have also change the gameplay slightly making it more of a side scroller than a old style rpg but this doesn't take anything away from the overall gaming. this game offers wireless downloads as well as wireless duelling from around the world happily because it's a newer version of the game it is quite easy to find duel partners etc My recommendation is. IF YOU CAN GET THIS GAME FOR AROUND £10 BUY IT IT'S WORTH IT IF YOUR GOING TO PLAY IT, IF IT'S MUCH OVER £10 IT DEPENDS WHAT YOU WANT IT FOR. Hope this helps, GET YOUR GAME ON !!
