Yakuza 4

Playstation Illustrated
31 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.

  • Conclusion: Yakuza 4 still looks and plays great, but it's a little too similar to its predecessor to stand on its own as well as Yakuza 3

Yakuza 4 (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Yakuza 4 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive that continues the story established by the first three Yakuza titles. Unique and massive, it’s a game that draws you in with its compelling depiction of a sprawling pleasure district in Toyko, Japan. The story is full of pathos and melodrama like its predecessors, but this time round it’s told in a much more clever and interesting way thanks to the intertwining narratives of the game’s four playable protagonists.

  • Excerpt: Based in the fictional city of Kamurocho, Yakuza 4 returns gamers to the intricate criminal underworld of Japan as gamers take control of four playable characters in this action adventure that is reminiscent of the previous Yakuza game and that of Shenmue! The story of Yakuza 4 takes place almost one year after the events of Yakuza 3 where the leader of the Tojo Clan is found dead.

Expert Review

30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: What do a loan shark, death row inmate, corrupt cop, and former gangster have in common? Not much, except a common destiny. Yakuza 4 tells the story of four different characters, weaving the narrative through the eyes of each as you battle your way towards the truth. Coming from the same company that brought us Shenmue, Yakuza 4 delivers an epic storyline with oddly addictive gameplay to make one of their better releases in recent memory.
