Fun diversion from standard Yakuza games.

  • Summary: This game is fun to play and a nice change from your standard Yakuza games. It has familiar characters if you follow the games in strange situations,...

Lots of cut scenes, and wish the aiming was better

Bobby W., Amazon

  • Summary: I like the concept of this game, and it does have some funny moments, but so far it's been a lot of long cut scenes and character dialog (text boxes) with action here and there. A bigger problem for me is the aiming mechanic - I've killed more walls and lamposts than zombies so far. You might be able to master it after a lot of play, but I think many potential fans might quit early on in frustration. I suggest renting before buying this one.

Pretty Cool

Augie Cordero, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're looking for continuity from the rest of the series, stop right now and don't purchase this game. I love zombie games. I love the Yakuza series. But this game is trying to do something most fans would be turned off too. For die hard Yakuza fans only.

Zombies Everywhere!

zyn "~zyn", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: A spin off title in the "Yakuza" ("Ryu ga Gotoku" in Japan) series, Dead Souls focuses on a "what if" scenario where a zombie outbreak occurs in Kamurocho. Featuring characters: Kazuma Kiryu (main character in most Yakuza games), Goro Majima (also a character since the start), Ryuji Goda (of Yakuza 2) and Shun Akiyama (of Yakuza 4); they each play a role in trying to stop the outbreak. The gameplay changes from what Yakuza is mainly about--fighting.

Flawed fun.

  • Conclusion: I'm a big fan of the Yakuza series. Its strong narrative with character focus and boundless gameplay ensures a great amount of fun as well as challenge. But Yakuza with Zombies? Surely not.

Because zombies were of course the next logical place for the series to go...

John Clayton III, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Yes, we ARE all sick to the back teeth of zombies seemingly being everywhere in modern gaming, even when the game seems as though it's premise would make it safe from undead intrusion they seem to turn up somehow. Previously with that statement, I'd have been talking about Red Dead Redemption... now I'm talking about Yakuza, as zombies attack modern day Japan and the only ones who can stop them are the honour driven gangsters of the Japanese mafia. Fun premise, right?

  • Excerpt: Yakuza 4 est très certainement ultime volet de la série. Pour Yakuza Dead Souls je pourrais dire que SEGA a pris le moteur de Yakuza 4 en y ajoutant un nouveau "skin". 4 Personnages joua...

  • Excerpt: Поиграли у друга в эту ерунду, теперь я не жалею что у меня нет ps3. Я видел вживую предыдущие игры этой серии и могу заключить что новая игра опопсела. Ее нельзя назвать полноценной частью "Якудза", так как с зомби все как-то совсем ненатурально и смешно, даже гротескно. Плюс в неплохой анимации, старых героях и нескольких забавных миссиях.
