Yakuza: Dead Souls

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: What a great idea: take the gangsters you know and love from the Yakuza series and put them up against zombies, quarantining them in Tokyo's red-light district. Oh, and give them guns. Lots of guns with unlimited ammo.

Review: Yakuza: Dead Souls

New Gamer Nation
4 December 2012
  • Conclusion: There are times when the game does come together and you’ll have zombie-slaying fun.  Whenever you’re outside in the open with a good weapon, the gameplay picks up.  Outside, you can maneuver easily and the camera is workable.  However, it’s just not enough to make this game good.

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Japan’s game developers seem to be heading down a strange path in 2012. Several beloved game franchise sequels coming from the Land Of The Rising Sun this year have not only turned out to be disappointing, but disappointing in a way that defies conventional explanation.

GamesRadar
25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: With four games under its belt, Sega has taken a new approach to its beloved Yakuza series and added zombies and lots and lots of guns. Yakuza: Dead Souls is far more spin-off than typical Yakuza game.
  • Pros: Playing main characters from previous Yakuza games, The entertaining side missions, Modding and upgrading weapons
  • Cons: The slow and frustrating auto aim and camera, Timing those Heat Snipes, Those tight interior areas

Yakuza: Dead Souls Review

Games Abyss
8 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Yakuza: Dead Souls has two demographics of gamers lined up in its cross-hairs: fans of the previous Yakuza games and fans of zombie games. Unfortunately, Yakuza: Dead Souls is neither a good Yakuza game nor a good zombie game so the vast majority of both fan-bases are going to be left hungry.
  • Pros: It’s here, but only the Yakuza fanboys will find it. It’s buried deep under layers of frustration and repetition.
  • Cons: Third person shooting derails one of the most creative and enjoyable franchises of this generation.

  • Conclusion: Going into Yakuza: Dead Souls I had some reservations, but after playing it, I'm happy to say that this works surprisingly well. There are still some baffling choices on the design front, why make me drive a forklift around when the driving controls are worse than those in combat, but for the most...

  • Excerpt: Zombies are the new World War II. A few years ago every game was set in World War II. Then there was a period of no war stories left to be told. Variety was common (yes, that sounds like a paradox), until the arrival of zombies.
