Yu Yu Hakusho: Tournament Tactics is a video game for the Game Boy Advance. The game features five member teamplay, and has ten playable characters. The story is based on the Dark Tournament Saga. The gamer plays as Yusuke, and must train while looking for his friends and others to join his team for the Dark Tournament. The game follows the story of the Dark Tournament, until all characters levels are maxed. Then all the playable characters are taken to a new island, where they face the Four Saint Beasts which were enemies from an earlier season. Like most anime-based games, it received mixed reviews.  It is also very similar to Final Fantasy Tactics.
