Mood, pathos, emotion, humor ... and helluva fights. This is a combination that makes Yakuza zero the one of the most entertaining game in the whole series. For lovers of Japan Y0 is a must-have. [Issue#272]
Yakuza 0 is an absolute masterpiece, from its non stop entertaining stories, to its very engaging sub quests, these can range from helping someone being attacked to a very comedic Michael jackson dancing in the streets moonwalking away from zombies, a robber getting robbed who then gets robbed, then making a short film with Steven Spielberg i am not kidding, these are the best side quests in gaming, but amongst these optional side stories there is the very serious and amazing story that is very entertaining with some amazing soundtracks and boss battles and a large variety of unlock-able moves this is the best game for both new fans to the yakuza series and already current fans this game is perfection and nothing else to say about it but go and play now.
Despite the shallowness of the combat, you’re always being pulled towards something new, and you can’t help but be carried along by it. Whenever you tire of one thing, the next distraction or big set-piece is just a few minutes away – just be prepared to be offered pocket tissues, have a few scraps, and become someone’s agony aunt.
There’s a lot to do in Yakuza 0, but it may take you some time to get through the game. While the story is very compelling, there are so many side activities that are equally entertaining, it may be difficult to pull yourself away to continue with the main story. If you have a history with the Yakuza series, there are even moments when you see where these characters began that will make you feel even closer to the grouping of polygons on your TV screen. Almost everything about Yakuza 0 is well-done and exceeds expectations.
game is very subjective if you're gonna like it. it's well designed for its genre; it offers a relatively large open world of progressive adventuring without being excessively large; its battling style is relatively complex and you can progressively become better and better at it while the story is fitting for a crime story. however for my tastes it was very excessive in vertical progression design; the game has you doing repetitive mundane tasks in order to have minor progress every time for minor benefits in battle (if you take the money system out of the picture (e.g. by using a trainer) the game feels extremely barebones for little gameplay since the repetition for more and more money is what gave a lot of its apparent depth); the battle style is subjective if you're gonna like it and you might like it if you're into that kind of genre but I personally found it cumbersome and repetitive and not worth the trouble going the full road of perfecting my gameplay for this game while the story was nothing extraordinary but I definitely can't give it a very low score because it's obviously subjectively great if you're into that kind of genre.
The combat and encounter designs are decently fun. The story is quite fun and has many satisfying twists and turns. The open world structure is interesting and has some very well fleshed out mini games and subsystems. This game makes for a very great entry point to this bizarre series. It's a variety show with lots of personality and quirks. If I had a major complaint it would be with the overly repetitive JRPG esc random encounters that dot the environment just to slow you down and make sure you've seen every combat animation so many times that it becomes drilled into your memory
I heard great things about his game. Unfortunately it doesn't live up to the hype. The story line is predictable and boring. The battle style is too repetitive. There is also a lot of uninteresting dialogue you have to go through. I found myself getting bored every time I played it.
