If someone is looking to get into the Yakuza series, Judgment should give them a pretty good idea of what to expect from the franchise.
No it is not. The mechanics are far advanced and would render most Yakuza games out-of-date. I say play the Yakuza series first and then enjoy this evolution to the Yakuza series.
Yep. If you play the other way round you'll see Yakuza as downgrade
Other than the detective stuff its the same game for 8 in a row. Walk around tokyo. Beat up people. Eat food. Play mini games. Complete weird side quests. The formula, the mechanics, the gameplay and the map are the same on all the games. They are fun but you would be hard pressed to find much that makes each game unique.
I really liked the Yakuza games and thought I would love Judgement but no matter how many times I tried to like it, I just couldn't get into Judgement.
