Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Kazuma Kiryu, the protagonist of the first Yakuza, is named Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan but unexpectedly retires from life in the clan the same day. However, his personally chosen successor is assassinated by a former allied gang called the Omi. These events set in motion an engrossing storyline that sees Kazuma travelling through Japan, on what could be the last opportunity to stave off an all-out war between the Tojo and Omi clans.

"We are thrilled to treat the gamers in Europe to the sequel of the critically acclaimed Yakuza," said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe Ltd. "Yakuza 2 is one of the most requested Japanese titles in our portfolio and we’re delighted to finally announce a European version."

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, but the same is still good 5 Oct 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When the first Yakuza game came out a couple of years ago, it was compared to GTA: Shinjuku before anyone actually played it when, in actual fact, the best comparison would be to call it Takeshi Kitano's Shenmue. It was deep, with a sprawling plot and a lot of things to see and do, be it numerous side quests to just exploring the city and sampling everything there is to find. And, of course, it had some of the most wince-inducing combat in any video game, with anything that isn't nailed down (and a few things that are) all being potential weapons.

Yakuza 2 is more of the same, in both good ways and bad.

In good ways, because it doesn't rejig the combat system or the exploration aspects, which were standout parts of the first game, so people who played the first game know what they're doing as soon as they fire up the game. And it's bad because you're walking the same locations as before, or a new city that doesn't look too different but offers different mini games, sub quests and things to find.

The biggest change from the first game is there isn't a translation, so the game is in Japanese with subtitles, which actually aids the feel of the game in my opinion, making it feel more like one of Kitano's yakuza epics. There is, however, a glitch with some of the audio in the cinematics, mainly as a result of the disc format (which also delays the game's start-up for a second or two compared to other PS2 discs), so occasionally dialogue can come across as fuzzy, for lack of a better word. However, the soundtrack and ambient sound isn't affected.

By Dragonlord TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yakuza 2 continues the very complex and violent story of Kazuma Kiryu in his fight against rival gangs. As the story unfolds Kazuma must take on the police and the Korean mafia too, in which the story is beautifully woven together. There are lots of different fighting moves to learn and the special attacks are in cool slow motion. The cities look ace with there neon lights and graphics overall look very realistic for a PS2 game. There are some fun mini games to enjoy as well such as golf swing practice and bowling. Its great that Sega are still giving PS2 users such fantastic games when so many other people have jumped the boat on to next generation consoles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good story 8 April 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am surprised about the story, it's very good like a movie. There is a very good mixture between graphic adventure and fighting. I didn't play the first one but there is no problem because you can see a summary about the first part.
