Excerpt: Whatever way you looked at it, Yakuza faced some pretty weighty comparisons in the run up to its release. One common knee-jerk reaction was that the Tokyo-esque cityscape and open-world gameplay heralded Japan’s answer to Grand Theft Auto, though in a time when sandbox games were in high demand,...
Pros: Well integrated new features, impressive city, battles are fun, story
Cons: Camera is suspect, low - grade animation in places, little replay value
Excerpt: I'm obligated to start this review by restating the obvious: this game is about the titular, Japanese organised crime syndicates which are a large part of the country's culture. Their influence being so strong, an "Act for Prevention of Unlawful Activities by Criminal Gang Members" was only passed...
Pros: Fun gamplay, intriguing plot, plenty of extra content
Cons: Holds itself back from becoming as good as it could have been .
Excerpt: Hi peeps. I recently completed it, so I figured I would share my experience with all of you :-) This game is a beat em up/ rpg. It has a certification rating of 18+ because of the sheer amount of swearing in it, Its made by Sega and is available from amazon for £14.97, however, I picked it up from...
Pros: A great beatem up style rpg with lots to see and do !
Excerpt: Yakuza is a game that I had been looking forward to playing for a long time. The Japanese mafia has been largely overlooked in many games and to have an in depth focus on such a secretive organisation is certainly a blessing.
Summary: I bought this game expecting alot as i am a great fan of games such as this. Many games have tried to replicate the grand theft auto series but failed badly. This is an ok attempt, but lacks the fluidness of GTA games.
Summary: i bought this new but never played it i dunno if it was my tv but the picture was 2 blurry .then i bought a 32inch lcd tv was the same i even bought a hd converter lead for the ps2 but guess what this game was not compatible no picture but my other games were ok .
Summary: What could have been a relatively entertaining game is let down by a number of frustrating features. Top of the list is the constant loading (in the first hour of play I think I was actually involved in the action for roughly 10 minutes).
Summary: As it doesn't seem sega are going to continue the great Shenmue "Series" they started on the Dreamcast, I was interested to see this game using a similar engine to the former. Although now used to the stunning HD graphics we have with PS3 and xbox, does it seem fair to be writing a review for such a...
Summary: Erano mesi che aspettavo questo gioco, erano mesi che controllavo internet per la data di uscita, sono un fan del genere GTA, Mafia, Godfather, ecc.. e sinceramente avevo capito che si sarebbe trattato di un altro pezzo forte della mia collezione.
