Quote from site:
"Yakuza 2 is linear to the extreme with very little deviance from the main mission. There is a few side quests mainly to get additional power-ups for your energy bars, which are quite fun if only for a limited time. The one thing that can be said about the game is that it does capture the wonderful vista of Downtown Tokyo in an amazing reproduction. This really is a great game, if only it had come out a bit earlier then perhaps it would have faired a bit better. That said though rest assured Yakuza 2 is most definitely the last jewel in the most magnificent crown of the PS2, a must buy for lovers of the original and brawler fans alike".
