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. We've seen zombie sandbox games before, but this is the only one where you can take a break to sing karaoke and drink with sexy (non-undead) girls of the night. But is that good enough to make you want to play another zombie game?

Softpedia
16 May 2012
  • Excerpt: In the Yakuza series, created by developer and publisher SEGA, the easiest way to save the city is to simply bring four characters from the history of the franchise together and give them the weapons and ammunition they need to kill all the normal zombies and their various mutated versions, while giving them a chance to also engage in the various side activities that made Yakuza famous.
  • Pros: + Cast of characters, + Side activities, + Karaoke
  • Cons: - Shooter mechanics, - Lack of multiplayer, - Loading screens

  • Excerpt: Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima and one of the most respected and feared men in Tokyo, receives a phone call that his stepdaughter Haruka has been kidnapped. This is the sort of story that's supposed to get your blood boiling, your anger to overwhelm your entire being, and next thing you know you're one man standing against many. This is how Yakuza: Dead Souls starts off and, really, if that was the entire plot it'd be a very short game.

  • 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 part it's a polished experience.

Yakuza: Dead Souls PS3 Review

Console Obsession
23 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Yakuza has never been a wholly realistic game, but Yakuza: Dead Souls takes the series further away from reality than ever before, replacing polished criminals with zombies and in turn bringing a fresh and welcome new direction to the series. Fans that feel that zombies are a step too far into the realms of fantasy for the Yakuza universe will be glad to know that Yakuza: Dead Souls’ narrative, whilst played straight, isn’t treat as canon.

  • Excerpt: What could be a more perfect way to introduce the sometimes shambling, sometimes sprinting, baseball bat-swinging, molotov cocktail-hurling zombies of Yakuza: Dead Souls than to show the black and white, age-old variety on a small television screen in a Tokyo apartment, the fictional walking dead staggering toward the viewer as the real life, full-color equivalent stumbles into the very room? Dead Souls hammers out a single, obligatory “What the hell is going on here?

  • Excerpt: Zombies seem to be everywhere these days, appearing in alarming numbers with disturbing frequency across the entire interactive medium. Like the gunmen of Red Dead Redemption, the gangsters of the Yakuza series are experiencing their own undead nightmare with the tongue-in-cheek and entirely non-canon spinoff Dead Souls. Can they survive the transformation?

Yakuza: Dead Souls Review

PlayStation Universe
13 March 2012
  • Summary: Yakuza: Dead Souls doesn't reinvent the zombie shooter with its simple combat scheme, but mowing down the walking dead in their hundreds and executing some neat special moves provides some frantically-paced arcade-styled thrills.
  • Pros: Enjoyable storyline, impressive production, slick animation, Taking down zombies with style with the cinematic special moves, Clearing a room of zombies with a machine gun is definitely good fun
  • Cons: Jerky camera angles can irritate, Basic combat system with auto lock-on means simple pointing and shooting wins the day, Repetitive zombie-slaying against hundreds of generic enemies
