Lately I've come across quite a few people who have criticized this game, and then I have also come across quite a few people who have backlashed those remarks saying the game is awesome. Well, which one is it? Does it suck or does it rock?
It's both. (now onto the actual review)
This game has bad graphics. It's easy to beat (thus offering no challenge) and you don't have a wide assortment of weapons. It can also get extremely repetitive, espeically during fight scenes.
But, despite all these flaws, I still love this game. Why, you ask? Because, simply put, I love Yu Yu Hakusho. Wether or not the quality of the game sucks matters not to me, because "Ohmygawd! It's Yu Yu Hakusho! Kurama! Wai!"
Well, you get the point. ^^;
So here is my reccomendation for this game.
If you have little to no interest in the Yu Yu Hakusho anime, this game is NOT for you. You will be bored to tears by the 3rd level and wondering why the heck you wasted $30 on this peice of crap.
BUT, if you're a fan of Yu Yu Hakusho....if you get excited my the mere prospect of playing as one of your favorite characters, and if you find yourself enthusiastically reading along with the dialouge (complete with your own renditon of Botan's British accent), the this game IS for you.
From an enjoyment scale of 1-5...

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS GAME SHOULD ROT SIX FEET UNDER April 3, 2005
By moot
Worst game ever. Don't let the other reviews fool you. These people who gave it 5 stars never even PLAYED it. -_-;; They're just yuyu fans like me who looked forward to this game before they got it. I purchased it because of all the 'good' reviews. A poor choice for me and at that time, it cost me 30 bucks. >:|

It has mediocre graphics, the same songs are played over and over again, and it's rather boring. The controls aren't that great either.

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is really good!!! December 7, 2003
By A Customer
I bought this game on December 6th and I beat this game in less than 10 hours.The graphics are good and the sound is cool.You can unlock the Dark Tournament and use Gen Kai.There are alot of levels in this game and you get to verse a lot of bosses.Togoro is the hardest and this game is challenging when it gets to some bosses.

2.0 out of 5 stars From a die-hard fangirl February 8, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, I'm a die-hard,obsessive-compulsive Yu Yu Hakusho fan. I heard there was a Yu Yu Hakusho game and therefore, my Kurama-fangirl instincts told me to go buy it.

How incredibly disappointing.

As a biased fan, even, I started playing the game. When this originally came out, I still had a Gameboy Advance, and after about an hour, I'd spent so much time following this tiny compass at the bottom of the screen around this huge town area, my thumb was sore, and I hadn't even gotten to fight anyone yet.

You don't get any other really good characters until later, and the first few things you do get really old after a while, because you can't save until after you finish the first few mind-numbing tasks. If you die by doing something stupid, you start ALL over again. I kept dieing at some point, and I went through the same few scenes so many times, I literally know the dialogue by heart.

The graphics are nothing special for a gameboy game; really, they are about average at most. You get really tired of them after a while, and you have the same background scenery about 80% of the time. (I swear I walked past this one couch as Keiko about 30 trillion times.)

Either way, while Yu Yu Hakusho is a great series to get into and a great manga as well, I would not recommend the game.

(And if I see Kurama die anymore, I might have a breakdown...)

1.0 out of 5 stars Scarier Than Demons, Seriously December 28, 2004
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Want a game so bad it will give you nightmares. So bad your eyes will bleed. So bad you'll swear your GBA is possessed by a demon. Well this is that game. Now listen, I like Yu Yu Hakusho, I think it's a great story and a spectacular TV series. But, this game stinks. Lets begin by talking about the graphics. The people look like they escaped from an old Atari 2600 game. The enviroments look decent at first, then you realize that all the places look exactly the same. I must have gone by this couch twenty times. And then there's the audio. The music is painful to say the least. But the music isn't nearly as bad as the actual gameplay. You're basically fighting or playing stupid mini-games like finding someone's homework. Most mini-games will just involve following your compass from location to location. Then you get to the fighting. This is the stupidest part of the game. First of all, everyone wants to get you. Demons, school children, old ladies, everyone. And they aren't exactly geniuses either. The fighting isn't deep or involving. Basically just mash the B button and you'll be fine. So, the game isn't fun at all. If your a die hard Yu Yu Hakusho fan you probably already have a copy. As for everyone else, you might want to play a game that doesn't suck so much.
