Yakuza 4

  • Conclusion: This sophisticated tone is one of the reasons I would recommended Yakuza 4 to any PS3 owner. It’s brutally violent, intriguing from start to finish and requires a surprisingly small amount of background knowledge. The Yakuza series has been consistently brilliant and 4 could well be the best entry yet, combining everything that makes it so quirky and original into one slick package. Is Yakuza Sega’s best series since their console days? Most definitely.

Review: Yakuza 4 (Sony Playstation 3)

Diehard GameFAN
26 May 2011
  • Summary: : Yakuza 4 , like its predecessor, is a great exclusive Playstation 3 game that’s well worth checking out for fans and newcomers alike, and while it’s not without flaw, it makes a good argument against its issues. The writing is as strong as ever and the characters are convincing, and the visual and aural presentation are among the best the console has to offer.

Yakuza 4 Review – PS3

Chip Chick
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Sega’s Yakuza 4 is the latest installment in the Yakuza series of video games. If you aren’t familiar with this franchise, think of it as Reservoir Dogs but ...
  • Pros: Fight scenes are loads of fun and you can spend hours exploring and eavesdropping on conversations that will make you chuckle. Mini-games such as playing at the arcade, batting cage, or helping damsels in distress will keep you entertained. Casual gamers who would rather watch a game than play it will enjoy it. Will take you 90 hours to complete if you play every mini-game and side task.
  • Cons: Graphics seem a bit dated. Cut scenes are way too long and can’t be skipped, not too mention they’re also often down-right cheesy. There are not enough fight scenes for my taste.  Subtitles are way too small for a game that requires you to read all the dialog.

Yakuza 4

Playstation Illustrated
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Yakuza 4 aims for realism almost the whole way through, which often makes it come across as a sterile experience. It fails to impress visually, but given the gameplay experience, I'm not sure the developers were really trying for that. This game didn't exactly fall out of the ugly tree or anything; it just doesn't sport a creative look.

Yakuza 4 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 April 2011
  • Excerpt: SEGA’s Yakuza series is one that has changed very little since the release of the first game back in 2005. Even the stories of the previous two games shared similarities with the original: big hearted ex-Yakuza Kazuma Kiryu is constantly being dragged back into the criminal underworld that he thought he had left behind. Yakuza 4 remains very much a part of the series, although there are some significant changes, making this the freshest game in the series yet.
