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

Review: Yakuza 4 (PS3)

Cybershack
2 May 2011
  • Excerpt: I have played an earlier edition of Yakuza and to me this new version is almost the same. There’s a long story, the dialogue is obviously designed in another language, the gameplay jumps all over the show and you run around a few blocks in pseudo Tokyo streets. There are 4 characters in this new updated version and the graphics have improved over previous outings.
  • Pros: Game length and side missions, storyline entertainment.
  • Cons: Too much story, too many game styles, translated dialogue, repetitious.

Yakuza 4

Nöjesguiden

  • 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

25 May 2011
  • 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

Tech Tudo
28 April 2011
  • 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.
