Yakuza: Dead Souls

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: Yakuza: Dead Souls is stupid. I spent a huge amount of time running around, pumping bullets into an endless stream of zombies, stopping only because I’d run out of ammunition. After I got bored of shooting waves of undead I went to an encircled spa where I could have a bath and play table tennis against a young prostitute.

Review: Yakuza: Dead Souls

  • 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.  Tedious gameplay, a frustrating camera, and cumbersome aiming are the three main negative factors.

  • 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. Ninja Gaiden 3 is one example, a title that had everything that made the series famous stripped from it and replaced with “features” so bizarre and confusing it made you wonder what was going on during...

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. It’s an awkward transition that’s peppered with great fan service, but its obtuse control setup aims to hook longtime fans and fans of zombie action games and ultimately pleases neither. While it falls short of expectations, it’s still a game with some charm.
  • 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

  • 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.  The result is all the quirky delights of exploring the stunningly recreated fictional district of Tokyo, Kamurocho and a 3 rd Person zombie shooter.

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. Stiff controls and lengthy load times hold it back from being as good as it could have been, but it proves that there's still some life left in massacring the undead.
  • 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
