I thought it would be fun, but the combat mechanics are difficult. The auto-aim is difficult to maneuver because you'll not always aim at a zombie, a lot of times you end up aiming at the wall or somewhere else. You have to be facing the zombie, and since the camera doesn't follow behind you very well this can be, and is, difficult.
Quite often, they throw tons of running, jumping and all-out brawling zombies at you in small cramped areas which makes combat frustrating. There are even zombies that throw molotov cocktails at you, or swing 2x4's or crowbars at you. Weird.
I still don't understand the side-story missions or how to find/accomplish them, in this Dead Rising knock-off version of Yakuza (with guns) which is also stupid. I still have yet to complete the game, and may not waste my time in doing so. I have gotten through maybe 1/4 of the way so far, but have myself poised at any given time to jump out of the chair and hit the eject button; ready to send the game back in an instant.
Dead Souls is trying to ruin the franchise I previously enjoyed. I think they should take the "Yakuza" out of the title and call it something else. I automatically didn't like it from the start of playing, and 15 hours later I still don't like it any better.
Storyline wise, not as good as it's predecessors. I did continue to play it until the end. Graphics is what you would expect from Yakuza 4. There are moments where the frame rate drops significantly. My biggest gripe about the game is how tedious it could be killing the zombies. They do mix it up with occasional super zombies or prototypes, but there is still much left to be desired. No regrets renting the game, looking forward to Yakuza 5
