Yakuza 5

Auracore MediaWorks
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Honor, combat, and pop idols - the world of Yakuza is a hell of a place.
  • Pros: Just an absolute ton of things to do; still feels great to pound someone's face against a wall; multiple vantage points help bring story together.
  • Cons: Feels a little out of place in the current generation; fighting system is really starting to show its age; certain parts in the story that drag on and on.

Yakuza 5

Game Over Online
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: It’s been a long, strange trip to the states for Yakuza 5. Originally released in Japan in 2012, fans stateside had begun to give up on the idea of getting the latest installment in the series that has symbolized the ideology of gaming depth and diversity.

Don't mess with that Yakuza. He'll Kiryu.

2 January 2016
  • Conclusion: The 'Stalker' revelation. Or maybe the one with the snowball.
  • Pros: Some of the action sequences are outstanding. If only more games paid this much attention to their martial arts direction.
  • Cons: There's too much filler in the main story. Oh, and anything to do with "following one's dreams."

Yakuza 5

Game Revolution
22 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Mobsters, arcades, and idols: the whole Japanese experience(?). I don’t know much about organized crime, which is probably best for my benefit. I’ve heard some scary things about Japanese organized crime, like the whole “cut off a finger if you’ve done something wrong or against the...

Yakuza 5 review (PS3)

17 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Although it was originally developed and released in Japan in 2012, Yakuza 5 is in my opinion the single best reason to own a PlayStation 3 in 2015. When I realize that the game very nearly didn't reach North America at all, well, that's just plain sobering.

Yakuza 5

High-Def Digest
17 December 2015
  • Summary: Sega's storied 'Yakuza' franchise has had quite a time getting into the hands of Western fans going all the way back to the later PS2 era, yet somehow, even if it sometimes takes years after the initial Japanese release, just about every mainline entry has eventually become playable in English.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
16 December 2015
  • Excerpt: The last time I dove into the Japanese criminal underworld with undeniable bad-ass Kazuma Kiryu was early 2011. That's nearly five years ago. Now, the sequel has - at long last - launched in North America and despite the obvious drawback of playing on an old platform, it delivers for the die-hard...

Yakuza 5 Review

14 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Once a powerhouse in the video games industry, Sega has dwindled in recent years and now has only a handful of gaming properties to call its own. Thankfully, they still have their hands on Yakuza, and
  • Pros: Oscar-worthy story., All of the mini-games and job responsibilities., Club Sega and pachinko machines., Applying Sega’s history in video games.
  • Cons: Cut scenes last for too long sometimes., Visibly weak compared to current gen., Combat is repetitive.

The Wheelman

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: If you’re willing to forgive the lack of story, the sub-par graphics and sheer silliness of it all, you’ll be rewarded with a hugely entertaining game that plays remarkably well, mustering a fair few hours of explosive driving action.

Wheelman Delivers The Goods

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: A seamless blend of tried-and-true racing objectives and summer blockbuster action movie fireworks Graphics: Vin Diesel's model is well done and the intensity of the crashes jumps off your screen Sound: Vin is appropriately deep in timbre, and I'm glad that the other actors' accents seem to...
