Lost Judgment on PS4
Video game sequels can be pretty tricky to make, even for a successful title. While you’ve got an established IP and audience to work with, the tightrope of not changing things fans loved about the game while also creating enough new features to warrant a sequel can be hard to balance. Thankfully, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio does just that with Lost Judgment, creating a perfect sequel that improves upon existing features while also adding in amazing new ones.
Lost Judgment once again follows the adventures of Takayuki Yagami: a lawyer turned private detective who stops at nothing to find the truth. When another mysterious and seemingly impossible case is dropped into his lap, it is up to the Yagami Detective Agency to figure out what is really happening.
To do that, Yagami must case the streets and find leads, working with returning allies like Kaito, Sugiura, Hoshino, Saori, Higashi, and Tsukumo to help him piece things together. Things are never as simple as tracking down the right suspects, though, leading to plenty of combat, tailing, and investigating.
The most important improvement to note right off the bat is that droning, tailing, and photography missions have been toned down significantly. Lost Judgment still has aspects of them, but they no longer make up an excruciating amount of the game’s missions.
Even when included, majorily in Side Cases, these features don’t muddle down the experience either. A lot of this is because small changes have been implemented in each.
