Besides being a fantastic game, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is also a technical showcase for the long running series.
Easily my favorite yakuza in he series, especially that ending. This is how you do a remake, yakuza 1 kiwami was also great, even yakuza 0 (though not a remake) Not a full priced game, fully upgraded with next gen graphics, expanded story modes, etc ect
It's crazy, after playing Kiwami 2 for the past week I decided to fire up Yakuza 2. Man, the difference is just...wow. The original Yakuza 2 still looks great though.
It's the greatest remake of all-time, because it has 12 years, and 2 console generations (nearly 3) between the 2 games, and benefits from modern day graphics power? Um...... no. The best remake of all-time, is still Resident Evil, from 2002. That was both, a technical marvel with only 6 years between the games, and a true-to-heart remake, by the original creator. Will Resident Evil 2 replace it this January? We'll see, but, doubtful. It appears to be taking too many liberties.
Yea, resident evil for GameCube was such an incredible remake! Grabbed it recently for ps4. Classic game!
Really glad Sega is putting fourth so much effort back into this series! I missed out on Yakuza initially so these remakes are a great for both veterans and newcomers alike!
Na Shadow of the Colossus takes that cake.
SOTC is definately a beautiful remake! Yakuza 2 and RE are also up there.
