Yakuza Kiwami: Steelbook Edition - PlayStation 4
The inaugural entry in the critically-acclaimed Yakuza series first shed its light on the seedy underbelly of Japan and the criminal organizations that thrive there in 2006 on PlayStation 2. Players are introduced to the 'Dragon of Dojima,' Kazuma Kiryu, an up-and-coming Yakuza who takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss, only to emerge from prison ten years later to a changed world.
'Kiwami' means Extreme.
In 2017, Yakuza Kiwami takes us back to the original entry point of the series, completely rebuilt from the ground up for the PlayStation 4.
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 central chunk of this game is a pretty serious crime drama revolving around your main character Kiryu being convicted for murdering the head of the Dojima crime family of which he is a part of. Kiryu spends 10yrs in jail and is finally released and heads back to Kamurocho where the entire game takes place and he is no longer a member of the yakuza. You will spend your time with the story trying to find out what happened to your friends since you've been in jail, taking care of a sweet little girl (if youre thinking of terrible escort missions don't worry you dont have any in the main game), and removing corruption from the Tojo clan which is the overall sum of the yakuza in Kamurocho.
So now I'll get to what I dislike about the game, it's going to be a pretty short list.
1. The lock on targeting during battle could be a tiny bit better with tracking the enemy you're focused on so they don't manage to get behind you and attack your backside.
2. The highway rail shooting section, if you're playing on normal or a higher difficulty the there's a very noticeable spike in the difficulty once you get to this section but if you must you can switch to an easier setting while playing unless you're in legend mode in which case have fun fighting your way back there to retry many times.
3. Karaoke minigame I hate it because to complete all of Haruka's whims you must suffer through a really tough I guess it's a rhythm minigame, it's not fun but I want all of her items just because.
4. Climax Battles- an extra mode where you have to fight and complete the challenges under certain conditions
Now for what I like, which is pretty much everything else.
1. Majima Everywhere, the closest thing I could compare it to is Nemesis in Resident Evil 3 but done much better since you really don't know when exactly Majima will show up to fight you. This is the closest a game has gotten to something I've wanted for about 24yrs.
2. The story and characters besides all of the sillyness to be found in this game when it tries to be serious it succeeds and when things get goofy with substories (side quests) a high percentage of them are pretty humorous. The serious and silly also applies to the central characters too so they can be really cool as well as huge dorks.
3. Aside from beating down scummy members of the yakuza, street gangs, punks, and an occasional drunk there is a lot to do outside of the main story although quite a bit of it involves fighting to gain special items and abilities. Outside of beating people up you can spend time playing numerous minigames ranging from mahjong to racing tiny customizeable toy cars. I'll pick out a few of my favorite ones but there's a lot more to be played. Mesu King Bug Battles which is a rock, paper, scissors game with sexy bug ladies fighting each other. Pocket Circuit Racing which is the 1 with the tiny cars that you buy parts to make your car more suitable for staying on and completing different courses. Black Jack, different forms of poker, and the fighting tournaments. There's a ton of other ones you can play too so even if you don't like the ones I mentioned you'll probably find some you can really enjoy.
In the end I had and am still having fun playing this game even if im stuck on a karaoke challenge at the moment. As a new player to the series I would recommend Kiwami to anyone who likes brawling beat'em ups of the past such as Streets of Rage, Final Fight, or countless other similar games. If im thinking of more recent games to base a recommendation off of the first things that come to mind are The Warriors, the Batman Arkham games, or Lollipop Chainsaw
