I love the Yakuza Series. This one is an alright addition to the series. The games takes the Yakuza characters and gameplay elements and turns it into an all-out zombie environment. The game has nothing to do with the main story line to Yakuza. The game is actually fun to play. The only downfall to me is the aiming system. It takes time to get used to the aiming and after that, the game is easy to play. Also, they should have added more melee attacks in the game. The guns are good but Yakuza is know for its hand-to-hand combat system. Other than that, the game still has the same interaction and exploration as the other Yakuza game. A great addition to the series but I will have to wait until this goes on sale for a lower price before I buy it.

Remember Shenmue and Shenmue 2 for the Sega Dreamcast?Well those games were brilliant.lots of talking to characters that you cared about.this game has you talking to lots of characters that you could care less about,kinda like those annoying people that you work with that you try to avoid.
Anyways,this game looks and feels like it came out on the PS2 ten years ago,controls and all.For the action parts either you are stuck to the ground while you are aiming, or you are auto aim running and firing shooting at whatever your guns choose to point at.
Some of you will bash me because I will say this is the first Yakuza I played,but all I could think of was,are these people going to shut up and let me take care of the zombie problem in the city?A couple of hours and that was enough.If you like minigames, bumping into alot of folks who ramble on and be put on side quest after sidequest,and well just cannot get enough of Japanese culture on what seems to be a Sunday stroll of a game,then I guess you might enjoy this.But sad to say the last ten years of gaming has changed.
