    Are you tired of AAA game companies streamlining and dumbing everything down? Me too! The streamlining is a result of management consulting companies like Mckinsey, Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, finance quants, private equity, and investment bankers telling publishers to dumb it all down.

    It kind of feels like Koei Tecmo dragged this franchise out from the closet under the stairs, dusted if off, then threw it back out to the masses. It's more Deception, and it's pretty good. But beyond that, it's a game that's strictly for the fans.

    Deception IV is a lot of fun but gets repetitive very fast with its redundant challenges and lack of a meaningful plot.

    Deception IV: Blood Ties is a very divisive game for the general public. Its slower pace has limited appeal, and the constant act of leading victims to traps can quickly become tedious.
