Its worth your money if you want a fun Rpg beat em up
6 March 2012
Summary: I am a fan of the series and I personally think its a huge improvement over the first one mainly because there is more to do and it is really challenging especially with all of the side quests to do and the witty dialogue when hitting on a hostess girl in the game
Summary: The Yakuza 2 video game is one the best games i've ever played. This game beats most of the PS2 games i've ever played.From the storyline and plots to the fighting control system this game will keep you entertained for hours. You'll hate to turn off the game because you'll want to keep playing to see what happens next.Not only that but the side missions and host bars and everything you liked about the first Yakuza game is amplified and made better.
Summary: The Yakuza games are probably the most underrated games of all-time (much like it's maker, Sega). This game has great graphics, fantastic control & a really great story that keeps you playing. I haven't had this much fun playing a game since the Metal Gear Solid on the PS1. Get Yakuza 1 & 2 on the PS2. You'll be hooked and won't be able to resist getting a PS3 for Yakuza 3&4. It really is that good. Here's the catch. Buy this game at Gamestop.
Summary: I'm not the greatest when it comes to reviewing but this is my all time favorite game on the PS2 itself..So I think it deserved more reviews.. Yakuza 2 as the first has deep storyline,with twists,turns and everything you can think of in a mafia movie..The missions are fun and roaming the city while doing so adds to the entertainment..How many games you know you are beating down a huge mafia boss and later leave to go to the batting cages.
Summary: If you liked the first Yakuza, there is even more to love in the second. If you are new to the series, give it a shot. There are few games that manage to transport you to a time, place, and into a character so well as Yakuza 2. You are the main character, a bad but honorable gangster fighting for what he believes in. You are in Japan, roaming the streets, shopping, and visiting the entertainment district. All that is missing is the smell of stale cigarette smoke.
A really entertaining and unique story that you just don't see in videogames

Summary: First thing's first: Yakuza is not a "Japanese GTA clone." Just because there's a GPS radar does not mean it is a GTA clone. If anything, its more along the lines of River City Ransom, except more adult (and not necessarily in a sexual way). One could even say that its an action-RPG (role playing game), as it has random encounters, stats, and character building.
Summary: I loved playing this game. Great plot, amazing story detail, awesome graphics, many things to do! Great fighting opportunity and full of upgrades, weapons, countless number of items. You can buy, sell, eat, visit clubs, meet people, learn fighting techniques, participate in tournaments etc. This game has it all! Explore the whole city, get involved in side missions, take a bite of those great story missions. If You like FREE ROAM games this one is for you! GTA fans?
Summary: This series has one of the best stories, next to Final Fantasy. Yakuza was not highly publicized which is a shame cause everyone that plays it loves it and then moves on to Yakuza 2 & 3. It is an RPG that thinks is a beat-up fighter game with tons of great cutscreens. Game takes about 15-20 hours to beat and you won't want to put it down.
