In 2005, a legend was born on the PlayStation 2 - the legend of Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, in his video game debut with Yakuza. Now, 11 years after that release, a new generation of players will be able to experience the incomparable action and drama of the Yakuza series with the rebuilt-from-scratch HD remake exclusive to PlayStation 4, Yakuza Kiwami. "Kiwami" means Extreme, and the game takes that concept to heart. It's not an HD-remaster or up-rezzing of PS2-era textures. Yakuza Kiwami was recreated from the ground up exclusively for the PlayStation 4. That means every visual element was optimized for the 1080p/60fps environment, every line of the script was re-recorded by series actors and for the first time in the West, gamers will be able to hear the original Japanese language track. Then there's the game itself! The PS2-era brawling gameplay is refined for the current gen with Kazuma Kiryu fighting his way through the ranks of Yakuza, only to wind up protecting a young girl whose aunt (and who happens to be Kiryu's childhood sweetheart) is missing...along with 10 billion yen.

* The story is great
* Has some good old fashion wacky side missions that are hilarious
* a fighting system that feels stiff but satisfying.
* If you've played 0 then this story will hit a little harder as it goes along, but since this is literally the first Yakuza game it's not needed to enjoy the experience.
*** Majima Everywhere system is hilarious and amazing every time it happens and the experience (EXP) alone makes it worth it and to make it better figuring out how to get him to attack leads to all sorts of strange interactions.
*Boss fights especially at the beginning are punch sponges and expect to very very slowly widdle down their health, which isn't difficult it simply really boring. One boss fight took me 15 minutes until I got annoyed and started spamming my heavy slam attack. I took a lot more damage but at least something was happening with him finally.
* Fetch Quest in the Main Story with little to no directions so plan on going to ever single convenient store to pick up items, and find out you need to do it all over again. And this is the main game structure, I'm totally fine with side quest fetch quest but in the main game it's horribly annoying.
* Leveling up doesn't feel as good as it does in the later entries since it feels to be in 4 main categories that are unrelated to the item inside them. It's not split up in different combat styles as in 0. I been putting everything into Health and Strength which has help a ton with the terrible boss fights at least.
Conclusion: As a Yakuza Fan it gets more points then it deserves, If this was my first entry into the series I might have not picked up the sequels, I though started with Ishin (Imported) and 4 on ps3 which were two of my favorite games at the times. So it's really cool to see where my favorite series came from but just happy it's the foundation not the current path. Still very excited for 6 when it comes out in March.
