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.

Just an amazing game to play through. I really love the dichotomy of Kiryu and Majima, and how their stories begin to intertwine themselves throughout the game. Highly recommend playing this even if you don't want to play Kiwami or any of the others.

Fun , entertaining and stylish . One of the best of the series.

This game is the 3rd worst game in the franchise and that says a lot considering it's still an 8/10 but my god this game is overhyped to the point where it feels like people are blatantly ignoring this game's flaws
The final antagonists for both protagonists are genuinely so boring that it takes away all the emotions from the final fight, especially for Majima. This is made worse when you consider that Majima is leagues better than Kiryu in this game, I'm guessing for a younger version of Kiryu they wanted to make him more "nuanced", that's why he beats up an innocent man in the beginning
But that nuance takes him nowhere and is quickly forgotten, he's so completely and utterly boring in the story whenever he's not with Nishiki. I love the dynamic those two have, but whenever Kiryu's not playing off of Nishiki, he just becomes so boring.
The game has glaring flaws, it's a really solid story but a few thing hamper it from reaching greatness
Yakuza 3 is better.

one of the greatest plots ive experienced in video games(tba)
