The Japanese version

  • Excerpt: I don't have Yakuza but I bought the Japanese version Ryu Ga Gotoku. While the fighting is initially great, it does level off. It never really became boring though except during the semi-random encounters.

  • Excerpt: I played the original Shenmue, back when it came out for the japanese Dreacmast. A year later (thanks to the dubbing, that is) came the american version, with english voices... that for the most part, sucked.

Nice game for a Weekend

  • Excerpt: Well I checked out Yakuza from work yesterday and I have to say that I was pleasently suprised. I was just assuming when I got this game that I would find another GTA clone with a simple shooting system and a pretty lame story. But was I suprised when I picked this one up.

One of SEGA's most impressive PS2 ventures

tom1clare, Dooyoo
24 July 2009
  • 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,...
