Spiritual successor to Shenmue...

Segata212d ago

Shenmue is a PC Adventure game with some action segments. Yakuza is an Action game. They are not in the same genre so silly to compare them. I love both btw.

NarooN212d ago

Shenmue is the best forklift simulator ever!
But I'll stick to Yakuza when I want to have actual fun with a video game.

Zerito213d ago

Do i need background to play this game ? I never played any Yakuza but this looks so awesome, kinda giving me Sleeping Dogs vibe

lptmg213d ago

It's nothing to do with it, it's more of an RPG like Shenmue

Summons75213d ago

Sleeping Dogs was a bad rip off of Yakuza. I'd say watch Yakuza 1-5 stories since they are sequels to each other. They may not be fully necessary but having the background on who characters are and what they have been through would be helpful.

Dissidia213d ago

Except Sleeping Dogs isn't bad at all, not the biggest open world but very fun combat and a solid story. The two games have nothing to do with each other.

@Summ- "Sleeping Dogs was a bad rip off of Yakuza" smh.

No...god no.

Both games are COMPLETELY different, they literally have nothing to do with each other.

Rachel_Alucard213d ago

Sleeping dogs was made as a spiritual successor to True crime. It was going to be True Crime: Hong Kong originally but Activision cancelled it and they took it to square but they couldn't use the True crime name. Thus sleeping dogs was made. They have no connection.

Kun_ADR212d ago (Edited 212d ago )

If anything else, Sleeping Dog is ripoff of GTA, but a spectacular one that is. IMO, Sleeping Dog is way better than Yakuza. I dont understand why there is no sequel until now.

ErogeMaster212d ago (Edited 212d ago )

Never watch stories cause you can miss out like a cred fag go the distance and actually experience and play the game.

You should play Yakuza 0, since it is a prequel. Then I would recommend Kiwami after that, as it is a remake of the first Yakuza.
The story in Yakuza 0 is dope, I couldn't recommend it more.

Zerito212d ago

Alright, i'll add it in the list and play 0 before this one !

_-EDMIX-_213d ago (Edited 213d ago )

You might need to legit play some of them. Yakzua series has a pretty deep story and it only helps to know some of that background. The games are pretty cheap to pick up on PS3 used and you could start with Yakuza Zero and Yakuza 1 remake on PS4 and move on to Yakuza 3-5 on PS3 if you like what you play.

This is nothing like Sleep Dogs btw. Sleeping Dogs having vehicles and gun play, yakuza series doesn't have anything of this other then in a Zombie Spin off. .

Zerito212d ago

I was like feeling it from the combat and like those mini games and dates and stuff ! N I'll start with Zero when i can, thanks :D

It's not like Shenmue nor Sleeping Dogs. It's not a GTA like game at all. It has a hub world essentially. It's not a RPG neither was Shenmue. Yakuza is amazing tho and best start with 0. It's a prequel.

Zerito212d ago

I'll see about the Zero :D Thanks !

Awesome! Hopefully this comes to Europe as well (the CE I mean).

ONESHOTV2213d ago

Premium Edition is a must buy for Kazuma Kiryu last fight damn it's going to be sad

Tankbusta40212d ago

You might throw one or two of those glasses at the TV in certain sections involving a baby.

ONESHOTV2212d ago

damn i hope not they look really nice lol

Tankbusta40212d ago (Edited 212d ago )

Edit: Can't reply directly to you ONESHOT, but I was just exaggerating. Its a small part of the game but I guarantee you will remember my comment when you play that section! I am through 4 chapters of the game and so far and I am enjoying it.

Matrix6212d ago

This is the first CE for Yakuza right?

ONESHOTV2212d ago

Matrix6--- maybe the first big CE

Nyxus212d ago

Yakuza 0 had the Business Edition.

jlove4life213d ago
