Awkward controls on gun combat but good other than that

Summary: Good game except for the very awkward controls when shooting. If you can get used to the weird control scheme during gun combat then you'll enjoy it. Worth playing if you like previous yakuza games or zombie games.
The controls can and camera can be fussy but it's good enough that you'll adapt to it and enjoy the ...

Summary: It reminds me a lot of dino crisis 2 you run around and kill things to collect points and once you fnish the set up for the story you can run around and do what you want and go on missions. The controls can and camera can be fussy but it's good enough that you'll adapt to it and enjoy the experience.

Summary: So, Tokyo is being overrun by zombies, and as a member of the Yakuza, your heavily armed and ready to fight, so what's the first thing you do? Play ping-pong, of course! So what if the world is coming to an end, there's still time to play the claw game. Of course, after slaughtering all those zombies, your arms might get a little tense, so how about a relaxing massage? Talk about a game with a split personality, albeit one that works.
Pretty good Third person zombie shooter, if you don't mind too much complexity

Summary: GOod game overall, wish it was more straightforward ALOT ALOT Of roaming around FOR SIDE MISSIONS. if you stay with the main quest you will be ok with the roaming, but backtracking if you do all the side quests, which you want too because it offers goodies like new guns, money etc.
Summary: Yakuza Dead Souls (YDS) is an action RPG that has a ton of zombies, minigames, substories and cutscenes. You could easily sink more than 100 hours into this game before finally beating it, so you will definitely get your money's worth. YDS is not a part of the main Yakuza series. You can play and enjoy this game just fine without having played the other games in the series before, but you might not understand several of the in-game references and inside jokes.
Summary: I LOVE this game, but I feel there's a little bit of lost potential. You can get AI controlled partners, so why not make the partners a 2nd player? With online that would've been awesome. Except that they're not in town and can't be used for story missions but still! Also, as true with most PS3 games, it has a very looooooooong install time, but still well worth it.Though I was concerned since this series has been mostly fist fighting and not sure how they would handle...
Summary: If you're a fan of the Yakuza franchise by Sega, then this is a must. You get to kill plenty of zombies and monsters, with a storyline weaved in. Yes, sidequests are included. Liked the new edition of gameplay where your kills gets tallied after each segment. BUT, the whole running around and trying to aim controls is maddening.
Summary: Background If you have already played a Yakuza game, you may want to skip to the "Summary" section, but for those of you who have not played a Yakuza game, and want to know more, please continue reading. Yakuza: Dead Souls is approximately the 6th console version in the series (there have been 2 other PSP games that never made it to the US), the fourth Yakuza title on the PS3, and the third to make it to the USA.
