It's time for Kazuma to solve the mystery once and for all.

Improves on the 1st...
2 August 2010 | by Logic404See all my reviews

I liked the the first Yakuza and gave it an 8 even with the numerous problems it had. The story kicked ass hence the 8.

The 2nd game improves on the story, fighting mechanics and the speed of loading is faster. Also the length of the game is quite a bit longer than the 1st. It also has Japanese voice acting. The first had English voice acting but Japanese works better with the tone of the game. The story really kept my attention with all the little twists and turns.

These Yakuza games have always been for niche audiences but to me they are very fun adventures and I'm looking forward to starting the 3rd chapter very soon. (I've finished the 3rd and the 2nd is still my fave)
