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

  • 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.

Yakuza Dead Souls review

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.

Yakuza Dead Souls

1 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The critically acclaimed, yet little played Yakuza series strays from its formula a little for its newest installment Yakuza: Dead Souls. Taking its cues from the fad of the moment, Dead Souls takes the basic framework of the Yakuza games and drops a shed load of zombies in them.

Yakuza: Dead Souls Review

G4
23 March 2012
  • Summary: Yakuza: Dead Souls is not a good shooter, nor is it what people expect from a Yakuza game, yet taken on its own merits it's an extraordinarily quirky, delightful experiment with lots of humor and a distinctly Japanese flavor.
  • Pros: Hilarious writing, Plowing through zombies is empowering, Loads of mini-games, Rich setting
  • Cons: Uncooperative controls and camera, Incessant, lengthy load times, Combat can feel unfair and cheap at times

Expert Review

GameSpot
21 March 2012
  • Summary: Kamurocho has seen better days. This pleasure district was once a place where yakuza could relax and enjoy the simple pleasure of clobbering each other in the streets. Alas, those days are over.
  • Pros: Story has a few terrific moments, Improving your weapons provides a rewarding sense of progress
  • Cons: Bland, frequently frustrating combat, Fails to capitalize on its charismatic leading men, Poor integration of Kamurocho's attractions
