CCG writes - "As an interquel title and elaborated DLC for Like A Dragon 7 and 8, this was a pleasant experience and justifies its purchase price. Morally, this is a very adult story like many other games by the same creators, and should only be played by mature adults. As a longtime fan of the series and as someone who enjoys great games, this title succeeds in both regards well. Definitely get it if you like the series."
"Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name bridges the gap between two major series entries, and it often feels like it with its constrained story and lack of polish."
