The only exit: be killed, or commit suicide. No matter how much he tries to escape, he's always dragged back.

Intriguing but violent Japanese crime drama.

Common Sense Media
20 February 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is the sequel to Yakuza , which came out in 2005 for the Playstation 2. The game is extremely violent and glorifies the lifestyle of the Yakuza, an organized crime group in Japan. The game is filled with heavily tattooed men, scantily clad women, and indiscriminate violence. While the story is engaging and very well put together, the subject matter is extremely mature and is not well suited to younger gamers.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Even though I enjoy playing games on my Playstation 3, I still regularly switch over to my PS2 to play some of my favourite classics. Sony themselves said that sales of the PS2 aren’t slowing down, and developers are still churning out some quality games for the slim console. Among this year’s releases is Sega’s Yakuza 2, which is a stellar game considering it’s been released for an older console.

  • Excerpt: was one of the most overlooked action titles for the PS2, and we’re going to chalk that up to timing. It came out just before the PlayStation 3 launch, so every last member of the media and much of the avid gaming world was caught up in the proceedings. However, those who did take a chance on the story-driven brawler, complete with a solid and intricate story revolving around the Japanese organized crime syndicate, came away mostly satisfied with the experience.

  • Excerpt: The Metal Gear Solid series has taken a lot of flack for the length of its cutscenes, and when playing Yakuza 2, the same criticisms spring to mind, but has SEGA managed find the perfect balance between narrative and ultra-violence?

  • Conclusion: Yakuza 2 is undeniably more of the same of its predecessors with small tweaks and optimizations in its gameplay, but fans of the first game should be pleased with Yakuza 2’s new storyline and with how much extra content has been added.

  • Excerpt: Action/Sandbox Is the PS2 ever going to die? It’s been a long time coming but here is the sequel to 2006 game Yakuza on the PS2. This sequel was actually released in Japan shortly after the original made it to these shores but we’re only just getting it now. Again it follows the story of lovely, but incredibly violent Yakuza man Kazuma Kiryu as he beats the crap out of anyone and everyone, but is it worth going back to the last-gen for?
