Review: Yakuza: Like A Dragon’s RPG shift is a thumping success

Yakuza’s new direction maintains the series signature drama and deckings, while finding rich new comedy in its weirdest beatdowns yet. Hugely entertaining stuff.

  • A smart blend of JRPG thinking and Yakuza style.
  • Jobs and enemy design deliver big, regular laughs.
  • Great new characters and a knotty tale to unpick.
  • Not the deepest JRPG battle system around.
