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: So yeah, as the title of my review suggests, that's the only reason I really bought this game. Dude in a white longcoat with a machine gun for his right hand killing zombies? Yes. Just yes. Turns out, that you have to play through 2 other characters stories first to get to him though, which I didn't really mind.
Summary: If you have an affinity for Japanese culture, then the Yakuza series should appeal to your sensibilities. Honestly, this very bias explains the high scores Dead Souls has received. This would be more along the lines of a 3 star game, if it weren't for that unique Japanese flavor. If you are familiar with the Yakuza series, you should know that Dead Souls is quite the departure. Firstly, there are zombies. And not just zombies, but a crap ton of zombies.
Summary: This game is by Sega and to me Sega has always made fun awesome games. Let me start off by saying the positives about Yakuza Dead Souls. First, if you like zombie games like dead rising, dead island, then you will enjoy this game The graphics are nice and the storyline is great and the game is long. You get lots of weapons which are cool. Now for the negatives. When you first put the game game in your PS3 you will have to install it which is long.
Summary: This is a very good game, controls are not as easy to master as in other shooting games, but I believe this may be intentionally done to make it more realistic, since at the end, you're not expected to be a master shooter if you find yourself suddenly surrounded by nasty zombies. Overall, the game is very good in its own way and nature, not for everyone, but I know there is a market segment that will keep appreciating this release.
