Yakuza 0

released on Mar 12, 2015

The glitz, glamour, and unbridled decadence of the 80s are back! Yakuza 0 is a prequel set in 1988 to the Yakuza series, taking place before the first game. Fight like hell through Tokyo and Osaka with protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and series regular Goro Majima. Play as Kazuma Kiryu and discover how he finds himself in a world of trouble when a simple debt collection goes wrong and his mark winds up murdered. Then, step into the silver-toed shoes of Goro Majima and explore his “normal” life as the proprietor of a cabaret club.

Amazing story (par some yakuza familial connection confusion; a family tree would have been nice!) with some alright gameplay and some of the worst side content ever

Incredible game! The game feature two main protagonists that each has an incredible story. The combat is very fun and addicting and the soundtrack is very good. Only downside for me it does feature a lot of dialogue but if you can deal with that it’s definitely worth picking up.

The strongest entry out of the Yakuza series that I have played so far (I have only played 0-3 as of writing this.)
Fun combat, solid story, memorable boss fights. The business sim with Kiryu is something I really grew to like for whatever reason, and I enjoyed Majima's club management as well. Mr. Shakedown was a fun mechanic and a nice way to cut down on any grind for money. The music is also quite good. I genuinely don't really have any complaints. I am just stingy with ratings.

Por fin he dado el primer paso de cara a jugar toda la saga -con permiso del séptimo "Like a Dragon". Me ha gustado muchísimo, Sega en estado puro y absoluto.

At first i only played it for the dame dame meme, but as I got further into the game , my perception of this game changed.The complexity of the combat , the depth of the characters (especially majima) and the oh so sweet soundtrack(Hidenori Shoji is a musical god) , as i got better acquainted with them , they made me realize that this game is much more than a meme , its an experience. As its true for any video game its not perfect. Some parts , for instance the method of which you obtain the legend styles for both characters , is a bit grindy , and i feel that it would've been better if they were unlocked at the end to tie in with the plot. That said this game is a must play (as long as you dont try to platinum it like a mad man) and its the best entryway into the long legendary series that is Yakuza. P.S Majima deserved better

Felt that it started off slow but I was proved wrong, paced out pretty well. The ending was just oomph. Usually I'd enjoy playing Kiryu more than the other playable characters but damn I enjoyed playing Majimo more in this sequel, I am actually quite satisfied that they didn't give him a "fairytale" ending, makes me more intrigued when I play the next few games in the franchise.
