Product Description

Product Description

Set in a fully realised, authentic recreation of Tokyo's "Sin-City District" the deep and interweaving crime drama of Yakuza 4 unfolds through the eyes of four unique and dangerous characters. Playing as the legendary Kazuma Kiryu, the loan shark Akiyama, escaped convict Saejima or detective Tanimura, players will need to survive the dangers and temptations of the Japanese underworld.

Yakuza 4 picks up the story of Yakuza 3 one year later and takes the player back to Tokyo. The story starts when a man is shot to death in the ruling territory of the Tojo Clan, the organisation that has featured in all games in the series to date. A small gang which belongs to Tojo Clan try to establish what happened and their leader is soon found stabbed to death. These events cause a heated battle between four men over money, power, status and honour. The truth becomes apparent as the lies, betrayals and entwined stories are revealed and when these 4 unflinching men get together, the new legend of Kamurocho is born.

 

 

  • Experience the Japanese underworld under the guise of 4 characters: it would not be a Yakuza game if you couldn't still play as Kazuma, but now play as three of the other key characters from the franchise. Each character has different missions and allows the player to explore the city from different viewpoints and engage in the Japanese underworld more than has ever been seen before.
  • Authentic replication of Tokyo: In addition to the bright lights of downtown Tokyo, players can now go into the depths of the intricate underground, explore the backstreets of the city and take in the views from the rooftops of buildings
  • Become the ultimate fighter: Enhanced battle mechanics and a new fighter training system allow players to work of their skills and become the ultimate fig

Manufacturer's Description

For the first time, western fans will be able to experience the Japanese underworld not just through the eyes of Kiryu Kazuma, but three intriguing new characters each with their own compelling back-story and a gripping interwoven plot.

The prolific game designer, Toshihiro Nagoshi, has taken the helm to build on one of Japan’s most successful gaming franchises.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different and strangely gripping 19 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This review has been written after around 13 hours play...

I have never played any Yakuza games before and got it mainly because I wanted to get my teeth into something 'open world' and time consuming. After the massive disappointment of Dragon Age 2, I heard some good things about this series so decided to take the plunge.

The game is kind of a cross between GTA IV and Street Fighter (or any other kung-fu type fighty games). There is a gripping storyline in which you play four different characters (although after 13 hours I am still on the first character) all based in a fictional district which I assume is supposed to be in somewhere like Tokyo. I'll not go into the plot as you can read that for yourself in the game description.

Basically the game revolves around a main plot with various sub-plots of which there are many. These sub plots go from the usual 'go and see this man and complete a task for him' to the bizarre 'dress and make-up a hostess in a hostess club'. It is such a strange mix, which I for one am not used to, that it is keeping me intruiged as to what I might be asked to do next!

The figting is implemented quite well, with punches/kicks and various combos - of which you can learn more of as you level up. There are also weapons you can purchase or manufacture. You can make weapons by optaining 'recipies' and the correct ingredients ehich you find lying around. All I will say is that the combos are a bit much for my 40 year old fingers, so I end up just mashing the buttons until stuff dies. The more dextrous amongst you will probably cope better. Unlike other games like this, it doesn't seem to spoil the combat at all and I never feel like I am totally out of control.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem 21 Mar. 2011
By BFS1
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I completed Yakuza 4 last night and it gave me a final statistics screen. It had took me 35 hours to complete the story, yet according to the completion statistics I had only completed 23% of the game. It's been a while since I've last played a game that has had me playing for half a day for a number of days. To clarify Yakuza 4 doesn't have a particularly long story. 10 of those 35 hours played were story. Half those 10 hours were cutscenes. What makes this game excellent are the distractions.

We'll begin with a brief overview of the story. Like the previous game, Yakuza 4 has an option to watch a catch up of the events that happened in the first three games. If you're someone who wants to purchase this game but not have to play through the other games then Yakuza 4 has you covered. Although I would recommend you play the others first to get a proper understanding of the story. At the very least Yakuza 3 has the same option to watch the first two game's story. As for Yakuza 4's story it seems in my opinion better than Yakuza 3's story. What's new to Yakuza 4 is that you aren't controlling just Kiryu Kazuma but three other characters. I was a little sceptical on how this would work. The first character you play as is Shun Akiyama, a loan shark with a different way of lending money. Without interest and collateral, you just need to pass his little tests to gain the money. Quite possibly the most interesting new character in the game. Taiga Saejima: a hitman who killed 18 Yakuza on his own but was later caught. My initial expectations of Saejima from the trailers were low but I was amazed by his very interesting story. It caught me by surprise. Masayoshi Tanimura: a policeman with a gambling problem. Tanimura's story wasn't particularly interesting at first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yakuza unite as one 29 Mar. 2011
By A2Y
STORY
The story is presented to us from four different perspectives. Firstly, there is Akiyama, a money lender with a very rough past. Next, we have Saejima, a yakuza member who committed a murderous crime 25 years ago, killing 18 members of the Ueno Seiwa clan. Saejima returns to Kamurocho to find the man who betrayed him all those years ago. Thirdly, we have Tanimura, a young cop who is tracking Saejima's case, which led to the death of his father. Last, but not least, we have Kazuma Kiryu, the legendary fourth chairman of the Tojo clan. Kazuma is handed a book which details a plot, endangering all Tojo clan members, and will intertwine with the actions of the three supporting protagonists.

The four playable characters are wonderful in creation and their individual contributions to the overall story are nothing short of brilliant. Their stories successfully combine together and are just as intricately woven together. Sure, the events of the game don’t have much to do with the Sunshine orphanage, but the children are the heartbeat and motivation to what Kazuma does.

GRAPHICS & SOUND
Kamurocho will act as the primary map location so you’ll be walking these streets a majority of the time. The environments are varied; prison islands and isolated shipping yards are just some of the new destinations in store for you. With regards to map design, you can also access certain rooftops and use these as makeshift pathways around the city. There are also underground areas to be visited such as parking lots and sewers. if the regular public get on your nerves, then you are more than welcome to make acquaintance with the crazy homeless groups.

2.0 out of 5 stars An Odd Game
The kind of game you want to start playing if you have endless hours and don't mind them going slowly. A very large game but difficult to get into as the story seemed quite slow.
