    SEGA proudly presents Yakuza Kiwami 2, one of the most beloved story lines in the franchise's history, remade in full HD for the PlayStation 4.

    One year after the 10 billion yen incident, Kazuma Kiryu begins to build a peaceful life with Haruka Sawamura. Tearing him away, an assassination threatens to erupt in an all-out war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance. Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, must travel to Sotenbori, Osaka in an attempt to broker peace between the rival clans, but Ryuji Goda, known as the Dragon of Kansai, will stop at nothing to get his war. In this world, there can only be one dragon.

    Excellent work which brings back one of the most beloved chapters of the saga: highly recommended to all, even to those who have already played it over two decades ago.

    Yakuza Kiwami 2 delivers some gorgeous graphics on PC thanks to higher resolution, smoother frame rate and better effects.

    It’s a smooth, modern-feeling experience—more even than 0 and Kiwami, which already felt eminently playable, especially given the latter was a remake of a decade-old game.

    Yakuza Kiwami 2 doesn't hit all the notes of its predecessor, but it's still a gorgeous re-imagining of one of Sega's finest action games.

    I had never heard of the Yakuza series until March 2019 and have since placed Yakuza Kiwami 0, 1 and 2. They've quickly become my favoriteI had never heard of the Yakuza series until March 2019 and have since placed Yakuza Kiwami 0, 1 and 2. They've quickly become my favorite series. For 0 and 1, I ignored all of the minigames and side-content; as I was so engaged in the story. For whatever reason, in Yakuza Kiwami 3, I found myself completing all the side-missions and they were also fun. Although, I'd probably ignore the Majima Construction minigame; unless you want to listen to the song.

    SEGA, please release 3, 4, 5 and 6 for the PC.

It's not perfect and the gameplay could had been better but once you start playing it's one of these games that drows you in. The characters, the story, the battles and every little detail in the environments it's a game that was made with care and has a soul of it's own. Expand

В плане геймплея заметна явна деградация - вместо трех боевых стилей из предыдущих игр, нам оставили лишь один, отчего повторяющаяся комбинация ударов оооочень быстро утомляет. Ах да, обожаю саундтрек, чистое безумие. Expand

    Due to some technical issues to the PC that yet to be fixed i cant recommend this game at a full price the story is pretty much like everyDue to some technical issues to the PC that yet to be fixed i cant recommend this game at a full price the story is pretty much like every yakuza story and the mini games are the sames as the previous 2 games.The combat and visuals are improved and are pretty good and i loved the mini games but there are alot of various bugs that ruin the overall experience and i feel like this import was rushed out because of it.I can only recommend this after the bugs are fixed or at a discount price.
