Shen-Who?

  • 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, this was hardly a surprise.
  • Pros: Well integrated new features, impressive city, battles are fun, story
  • Cons: Camera is suspect, low - grade animation in places, little replay value

Yakuza

  • 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 in 1995, and they are still estimated to be the world's largest organised crime group with over 87,000 active members worldwide.
  • 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 Gamestation for £10 ( well it was on the 2 for £20 so it was a tenner). The way the PS3 is sneaking in you should be able to pick it up even cheaper soon.
  • Pros: A great beatem up style rpg with lots to see and do !
  • Cons: The loading times x2

Yakuza: A Samurai sword cut above the rest

  • 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. Your role is that of Kiryu Kazuma, a man who had been feared and respected by many of members of the Dojima Clan.
  • Pros: Immersive story, Solid fighting, Stellar graphics .
  • Cons: Camera can be a slight problem, but I'm nit picking .

  • Excerpt: Waouh ! Le jeu est semble t'il super apprecié par ici ! Je vais nuancer un peu le propos. Yakuza m'a franchement déçu. Notamment par son gameplay, bien de trop "compartimenté" dira...

Quando la pubblicità inganna

21 November 2006
  • 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. Certo, ovviamente in stile giapponese, con katane affilate al posto delle vanghe da giardino rubate in GTA, con capelli rasati e tatuaggi sulla schiena invece di gessati e cappelli a coppola siciliana, ma pur sempre con molta...
  • Pros: non male dopotutto
  • Cons: prometteva mooolto di più

  • Summary: --------------- Story: --------------- Die Handlung beginnt im Jahre 1995. Kazuma Kiryu, bekannt als der Drache des Dojima Clans und schon fast eine Legende in der Welt der Yakuza, gesteht den Mord an seinen Boss und wandert dafür ins Gefängnis. Allerdings hat er dieses Verbrechen nicht wirklich begangen, sondern er will seinen Freund schützen und nimmt daher die Schuld auf sich. Zehn Jahre später kommt er aus dem Gefängnis frei.
  • Pros: spannende Story, tolle Atmosphäre
  • Cons: Grafik und Sound nicht überzeugend, mitunter Kameraprobleme, Kampfsystem zu simpel
