Review: Judgment is a Yakuza game in disguise

Sega’s spin-off doesn’t deliver on its investigative pitch, but its humour still shines

Judgment doesn’t deliver on its investigative pitch, but its humour and sense of place still shine.

  • Kamurocho has never had a better sense of community
  • Hundreds of side missions and activities to keep you busy
  • Investigation minigames and gang invasions get tiresome
  • You don’t get to do much detective work
3 / 5
Version tested
PlayStation 4
