Yu Yu Hakusho: Tournament Tactics is a game that I would recommend to any gamer who is a fan of the TV series or enjoyed playing through other games similar to this (like Final Fantasy Tactics). However, it isn’t for everybody and does start to feel a bit repetitive halfway through.
Overall, Yu Yu Hakusho is an average game. Its poorly written dialogue does little to advance the storyline and its low level of difficulty at the beginning may turn some players away. However, for those who stick it out, it does become more difficult later on (albeit after quite some time) and the story can simply be skipped or ignored altogether. The gameplay is fairly solid otherwise. This game may appeal more to younger gamers or to fans of the TV show; others may be better of with a GBA copy of Final Fantasy Tactics.
Unless you really love Yu Yu Hakusho, there isn't really any reason to replay this game. There is some bonus material (and I believe a secret character,) but not enough to warrant a second run through the game or anything. I think that this game would be a great introduction to the Strategy genre for a little kid or just someone new to gaming, but for an SRPG vet, it's pretty boring.

I love tactics-style RPGs.
For me, there’s virtually no category of game that plucks my “must buy” strings quite so effectively. Yet while I’m a huge fan of the genre, poor entries into the field bring out the most critical voice I possess. While Yu-Yu Hakusho Ghost Files Tournament Tactics isn’t quite that bad, it’s also not a shining example of the genre. It’s more of a ho-hum affair with few surprises and little innovation, a game that makes you feel someone out there in a videogame executive sweet said, “Tactical RPGs are hot right now. Let’s do one, too. I need it on the market in about … six months.”
For the past few years, the popularity of anime has grown in the United States, thanks to the help of the Cartoon Network. They have shown the American audiences such programs as Dragon Ball Z, Tenchi Muyo, various Gundam series, and even Yu Yu Hakusho. Since the TV shows have proven to be extremely popular, various developers have decided to make games based off them. Atari has created another game in the Yu Yu Hakusho series entitled Yu Yu Hakusho: Tournament Tactics. Read on to find out more!
Now, don't get me wrong. "Yu Yu Hakusho: Tournament Tactics" is not bad by any means. It's mediocre at heart, and I realize that I'm not the target market for this. If you're looking for a good strategy game, and you're a fan of the genre feel free to skip over this. If you have a child that likes the license and may have an interest in the genre but not the skills to manage it well, though, it could work.
Yu Yu Haskusho: Tournament Tactics, ça sent bon la licence facile et le Tactical du pauvre. Pas très beau, répétitif et surtout très limité, le jeu pourra probablement satisfaire quelques fans extrêmes de la série. Pour les autres, faites une partie de tarot, allez au cinéma, tricotez, partez au Mexique... n'importe quoi, mais n'y jouez pas.
