The glitz, glamour, and unbridled decadence of the 80s are back in Yakuza 0. A prequel to the long-running series set in Japan's criminal underworld, this entry introduces mainstay protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and series regular Goro Majima as they fight like hell through Tokyo and Osaka in their climb through the yakuza ranks. Along the way, players can interact with all the vices 1988's Japan had to offer: from discos and hostess clubs to classic SEGA arcades, there are tons of distractions to pursue in the richly detailed, neon-lit world.

At its heart, Yakuza 0 is a classic 3D brawler, where players roaming the streets of Tokyo or Osaka will encounter all manners of goons, thugs, hoodlums, and lowlifes to beat up. Featuring an engaging combat system allowing players to switch between 3 different fighting styles instantaneously, Yakuza 0 gives players fluid, free-flowing fights that are easily learned and a joy to master. Take combat up a notch by using environmental objects such as bicycles, sign posts, and car doors for bone-crunching combos and savage take-downs.

  • FIGHT LIKE HELL - Kiryu and Majima can each switch between 3 brutal hand-to-hand combat styles on the fly to creat the most fluid beatdowns ever experienced in a Yakuza game Use Heat Actions to trigger violent special attacks, or pick up environmental objects to whale on enemies!

  • THE FINEST PURSUITS 1980s JAPAN HAS TO OFFER One of the main features the Yakuza series has to offer is being able to relax with the various entertainment options around Japan, and Yakuza 0 has more than ever Players can go to hostess and telephone clubs for some female companionship, disco halls and pocket car races to blow of some steam, hit up the CLUB SEGA Arcades for classic 80s video games, and much, much more!

Damn been waiting for this to hit £20 but after spending too much money on holiday I'll have to pass and stick with Skyrim and Just Cause 3! Heat though
Amazing game. Doing story casually took me 40 hours, and I have only just reached 50% completion with over 60 hours played, never seen so much content in a game before
Currently my go to game. TONS of side missions, and these are not all fetch quests, which is refreshing. MEGATONS of distracting things to do: Bowling; gambling; dancing; fishing; eating; soft porn video watching; drinking; pub gaming; dating; singing; arcading to name a few. No wonder I've clocked 50+ hours but only about 1/3 of the main story done.

Quite a lot of peculiar side quest NPCs, OTT protagonists (and rather good acting from the main Yakuza head badguys) and lots of fisticuffs where you can interact with surrounding railings and road/pavement objects - Kurb stomp anyone?

The only two negatives some might have about this game: is that it's heavily subtitled (no jap-to-eng dubbing at all), so stay away if you don't like to read. However as I'm partially deaf I have subtitles on all games so it doesn't bother me; and that the open world maps compared to GTA are minuscule. Think of them as open highly detailed boroughs and you'll get a better idea of the scale of the places you'll find yourself in.

if you're still on the fence I suggest watching angry gamer's review of this game on YouTube.

Had my eye on this for a while, but in some reviews the reviewer states the game has a lot of dialogue, borderline MGS4 style.... I don't want to sit there watching cut scenes for hours on end, how bad is it?
Yakuza games are just amazing.
Definitely worth buying a system just to play a Yakuza game.
So much entertainment packed,it's unbelievable.
10/10

tolerable, you can skip the cut scenes and bash X to make the text wiz by if you wish. the game's broken down into chapters of which there's 17 (apparently) expect a cut scene joining each chapter that last roughly 5 mins.

i always thought these were just poor GTA rip offs. i never had a ps3 and the closest i thought i got was playing Sleeping Dogs. bought this on a whim (and a PSN sale), loaded it up and realised instantly that i was actually playing a next gen version of a game i treasured on the sega dreamcast, Shenmue. at that moment i knew that i was going to enjoy it immensely. and you know what, i am.

It definitely has a good 70% DNA of Shenmue..
Many people wrongly assume it's a GTA clone,but people who actually play it know how different these 2 games are.probably 95% mismatch with GTA.

It Immediately became one of my top gaming IPs of all time when I first played Yakuza 3 on PS3.

I never played too much PS2 so I missed the first 2 games but they are now coming to PS4 in form of Re-Master.

Yakuza 6 is also due to be release soon.

Great game to have in your backlog. I've got 4 JRPGs in mine. I'm not seeing daylight until Christmas.

Looking forward to it, yakuza 6 will probably be pushing the PS4 to the max now they have stopped supporting the PS3.
