Mar 25, 2020If you’re looking for your first Yakuza game, you’ll be far better served by picking up one of the more modern titles like Yakuza 0, and if that sinks its hooks into you, rest assured there’s no longer a void in the story on PS4 between Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Yakuza 6. More experienced Yakuza veterans will also be sure to enjoy experiencing these hits again with a fresh coat of paint and solid frame rates.

Yakuza 0 was what got me into the series, whist Kiwami 1 and 2 built upon this massively, so Yakuza 3 and 4 are more like a massive backwards step when you play the games in order. It's nice that some of the combat mechanics vary between each game, but the fighting sequences become so repetitive and predictable after playing a few entries. Yakuza 3 managed to conceal this with a change of pace and setting, however by Yakuza 4 I was arduously chugging along through the dialogue and combat. Yakuza 5 became a tried drawing-out of plots and sequences.
One of my biggest issues with this game and the series as a whole sometimes is how much it can waste your time with filler. In addition to this, there are occasions when you are given an objective but no map marker, making for an aimless wander around the map or to the internet. Some may enjoy this but I did not.
This is good for your collection but I think reading a synopsis may be the best bridge to Yakuza 6.… Full Review »
