    This game has left me seriously deflated playing anything else. I really think it'll be game of the year.

    I'm guessing the start of this is slow? I'm about an hour in, had two fights and about to do some karaoke, but nothing else.

    A bit underwhelmed with the side activities in this. The combat is ok but really dated in execution. Hoping the story is good enough to carry the fairly poor gameplay through as i have enjoyed that side of it, Im not that far into chapter 2 yet. I do like the craziness of it all though.

    Hmm, really not feeling this. Reeks of a budget title. Looks like a PS2 game in places. Game world is awful. Combat is slow and clunky. Looks like a mini game compilation.

    I'm loving this game!

    there feels something very unique about it. You buy a fighting game, and after a few hours you are doing everything else but fighting. And the fact you are hooked on the other stuff really Shows the greatness of yakuza games.

    I prefer the main fighting style of the first character, but I love the additional fighting styles of Majima Goro. But like I said, at the Moment running the Club feels more important than fighting.

    I enjoyed the combat. It's third person streets of rage. Unlocking different upgrades does help, but yeah, don't expect too much depth. Besides they last 30 seconds or so tops so long as you're not a window licker with the controller.

    Plot, characters and setting make the game though. It's fantastic. If you don't like that, you have no soul, your bloodline is weak, and your ancestry may contain horse.

    My bowling game may be weak but my Yakuza game is strong!

    The brutally satisfying combat was a big draw to me for the series, the Japanese melodrama and tourism simulator make it a wholly unique experience.
    Yes it can be shonky but it's got a lot of heart.

    I loved the side quests, most of them were very original. Though I may just have that impression because it was my first Yakuza game.

    Somebody doesn't remember what PS2 games looked like! You might find the comparisons here illuminating:

    I'm far enough in now that the appeal is starting to shine through.

    Still can't work out is it utter poop or the best game ever, mind.

    the only Thing that is too much for my taste is the overlong just text, no Animation conversation. Now they really overpushed that aspect for my taste.

    but it still doesen't Change my mind of this being one of my favorite games ever!

    The only two things this game has too much of are hilarity and awesomeness.

    Voice Actors are expensive yo. They picked the lines to be spoken with more drama I guess.

    This reminds me of a mix of shenmue and sleeping dogs.

    I haven't done much pocket racing yet. Ignored the Shogi guy as I don't know how to play it ;)

    As for the sidequests I have gone through Yakuza 1-4 and half of 5 in the last 3-4 years and still enjoy the sidequests :) From 3 onwards I tried to complete all of them bar Amon ones too.

    Mechanically it's not the best game ever, but I need to see how the love triangle with the pocket race drivers pans out and can't stop wondering if the the not very dominating dominatrix is being mindful of the lessons shown to her to succeed in her chosen profession.

    Some of those pocket racer quests had me in stitches. I haven't played a game this funny in a long time.

    I loved the dramatic, slow-mo shot of Kiyru when his pocket car goes off track.

    He's such a serious character, it just makes it even funnier when stupid shit happens to him.

    Finally hit chapter three and got using Majima - immediately prefer his first fighting style.

    Was half thinking of binning it but his absolutely ridiculous intro reminded me why I play games in the first place.

    Starting to get annoyed by this - far too many cut-scenes for my liking (4 different types of cut-scenes no less!). The enjoyable combat feels like a rare treat after yet another cut-scene.

    I appreciate that Japanese games often feature more non-interactive sequences than their Western counterparts (something really noticeable to me after completing Horizon: Zero Dawn). It's just frustrating for me, seeing as the cut-scenes are mostly conversation-based I find myself reading the subtitles and skipping the dialogue when I can more often that I'd like.
