    Was this title worth the near-decade wait? Absolutely! Like a Dragon: Ishin! delivered on story, gameplay and replayability. Despite my minor complaints about some quality of life issues, I’ve spent more hours than I needed to solving the problems of the citizens of Kyo, shaking down roaming thugs in hopes of extracting a much needed crafting material or perhaps recruiting them into my squadron. Western fans of the series are treated to a wondrous experience that they were deprived of and one would hope their support would give RGG Studios the will to bring other Japanese only experiences out to the west or remake other side titles. I’m looking at you Like a Dragon Online, the Kurohyō titles and of course Yakuza: Dead Souls.

    Kazuma Kiryu's lineage is ever present even as the streets of Kamurocho are swapped for the well-traveled streets of Kyo at a time when American influence was only starting to reach Japan. Despite being a period piece set during the tumultuous Bakumatsu period, Like a Dragon: Ishin! still feels like that classic Yakuza JRPG that fans already know and love.

    There are some solid bones in Ishin that I want to see in other Like a Dragon games, such as the inclusion of Another Life in different forms, and its ability to transport players into a different historical timeline is both unexpected and well executed, even if there’s still room for growth. Where Like a Dragon: Ishin shines its brightest, however, is its reminder that video games can be both serious business and absolute fun. It’s what the series has made a name for itself doing, and this newest entry does not disappoint in that regard.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Meu Deus... O que se passa comigo? Depois de ter jogado. TODOS os jogos da franquia acho que este, depois de umas 7 horas a jogar, é um dos piores, se não o pior de todos. Tem um bom sistema de luta, e pronto. Os gráficos parecem saídos da PS3 da tão maus que são. As personagens, todas as caras conhecidas, se calhar por ser mais simples, movem-se com a leveza de tijolos. As expressões.... Quais expressões? O andar km de missão em missão, que noutros jogos principalmente os de PS4, com as lojas e vida das cidades, passou a ser uma seca. É jogo que não vale nada? Não diria tanto, mas 90 como aqui vejo? Então os anteriores eram quanto? Por isso digo tem quer ser problema meu... Para mim tem que ser sempre abaixo dos 70, e 70 já é por favor. Full Review »
