Yakuza 4 Review

G4
24 March 2011
  • Summary: A hodgepodge of different genres, mini-games and tones, Yakuza 4's eclectic nature keeps things interesting. It's a slow burn though, with an overabundance of text and the story is a labyrinthine mess. It may be hard to follow, but deeply moving character moments, unexpected humor, and a lavish setting make it a crime drama worth following for more patient gamers.
  • Pros: Amazing setting, Varied and sympathetic characters, Lots to do, Mature subject matter
  • Cons: Too much text, Perplexing story, Unrefined combat, Too many invisible walls

Yakuza 4

  • Excerpt: Det fjärde Yakuza-spelet (femte om man räknar ett feodalt sidospår) gör sitt avstamp i en japansk poplåt på engelska befriad från konsonanter, och slutar sedan i en ballad med ungefär samma språkliga dignitet.

Yakuza 4

  • Excerpt: Trots att Yakuza-serien är större än Hyland borta i Japan har den aldrig riktigt fått en chans här i väst. Debuten marknadsfördes mot helt fel publik, uppföljaren släpptes till Playstation 2 efter att formatet övergivits av alla andra och del tre kom två år för sent i en smått stympad version.

Yakuza 4, a máfia japonesa está de volta

  • Conclusion: Yakuza 4 mantém a sua fórmula de sucesso visando o público fiel dos games anteriores. Entretanto, a simplicidade de elementos do game demonstra o mínimo de esforço da Sega em ampliar sua legião de jogadores. Apesar de gráficos simples e muitas horas de gameplay (principalmente assistindo a todas as animações do game), o jogo apresenta um interessante sistema de combate, mini-games viciantes e um enredo bem elaborado.
  • Pros: Enredo bem desenvolvido., Eficiente sistema de combate.
  • Cons: Gráficos muito simples., Excesso de animações.

Test : Yakuza 4 (PS3)

Gamekult.com
18 March 2011
  • Summary: Malgré pas mal de petits défauts, le cru 2010 de la criminalité ludo-numérique nippone s'avère bien plus réussi que le volet précédent ! Cependant, le temps passe, et la faille technique entre ce titre et les productions occidentales actuelles se fait malheureusement de plus en plus sentir. Les trois nouveaux personnages disponibles sont bien écrits, agréables à manier et restent le principal intérêt de ce jeu.
  • Pros: Trois nouveaux personnages, Scénario qui accroche, Mini-jeux souvent réussis, Quêtes annexes loufoques
  • Cons: Réalisation datée, Modélisation paresseuse, Trop dirigiste
