Another Great Game in the Yakuza series.

Great game, but like any other game in the Yakuza series it has violence, sexual themes and some bad language. The game is a remake of a ps2 game and is pretty tame in some ways compared to some of the others in the series. It is best played if you have played and enjoyed Yakuza 0 first.

This title has:

Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Very Good

To give this game a 3/5 is criminal. The story is fantastic and the combat system is just what it should be, easy to pick up but hard to master, and doesn’t get boring.

Great messages
