Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PlayStation 4) - Defunct Games
Defunct Games reviews Yakuza Kiwami 2 by Sega, available August 28 on PlayStation 4.
Although the formula is awfully familiar, there's no denying the quality of this remake. Yakuza Kiwami 2 offers a compelling crime story filled with over-the-top characters and beautifully-realized locations. It's also a fun big-budget beat 'em up, something we don't get enough of these days. And considering how poorly the PlayStation 2 game sold back in 2006, it's nice to see this chapter of the Kazuma Kiryu saga given a much-needed facelift. The result is thrilling action game that doesn't stray too far from the tried and true Yakuza formula.
