    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It would be a 10 if they didn't cut content from 3 because of "times have changed" **** A. That should happen because I paided for the full game & B. This I a remaster not a new game **** shouldn't be cut because I could just buy the original (jap vers that I own). Overall was gonna be a 10 but still good Expand

    This collection brings us 3 great games from ps3 to ps4, with enhanced graphics, added missions regarding the prequel game (yakuza 0) to add more lore to the games. Including the remake of one of the characters in yakuza 4, for respecting the actors choice in stepping out of the world of fame.

    While it's nice to have the entire Yakuza saga on PS4, this remastered collection has the unfortunate place of being an inferior collection sandwiched between some very good games. 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.

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.

    All three of the Yakuzas featured in this collection are essentially perfect — each one boasts fantastic stories, great gameplay, and an opportunity to spend time in one of the most vibrant worlds in the history of videogames. Whether a player is someone who’s beaten the PS4 titles and wants to see the rest of the story, is a longtime fan considering a replay, or someone coming to the series fresh, I’d recommend this collection wholeheartedly.

    As someone who only came to the Yakuza games when Zero was released, getting the chance to play the whole series now is something that really appeals. The narrative in these games may not differ too much from one another, but it is more than made up with the varied and entertaining cast. Kiryu’s Yakuza with a heart personality really stands out and only made me love him even more, especially when he was being an unstoppable fighting machine.

    The Yakuza series has finally started to receive some of the acclaim and audience it has long been due. It deserves even more, however. These are some of the finest video games ever made, with no hyperbole. The storytelling is absolutely masterful, gripping and enthralling, filled with characters that the audience will fall in love with.
