One of SEGA's most impressive PS2 ventures

  • Excerpt: Whichever 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,...

Fun but flawed.

  • 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.

Japanese GTA?

Ricardo Gaspar, Amazon
5 April 2007
  • Summary: Yakuza as a game focuses more on story rather than it's gameplay, this becomes apparent quick during most fighting segments once you have to deal with frustrating and clunky controls, but even with the game's heavy faults, it hold enough charm to keep you entertained all throughout.

  • Summary: Ever since my dad brought home Yakuza 3 I've been in love with this game. I am currently looking to buy the whole series since the storyline and characters are amazing and I wanted to backtrack to Yakuza 1, where it all started and play from beginning to end.

Good, but not whats expected.

  • Summary: Yakuza is a good game with average graphics average gamplay excellent story line and voice acting, but for someone wanting a fast pace action game might be disapointed because their alot of wandering to do and once you have a fight it is good,but not fast paced.
