If you thought zombies were bad ... meet the Yakuza!

Conceptually, the Yakuza series might appear to have “jumped the shark,” but Sega has designed the game well enough and with such enthusiasm that you can’t help but be impressed. These Japanese mobsters treat the outbreak with the same seriousness as any encroaching business rival. The recycled setting and level design might’ve run its course after this game, but that’ll be something that the next installment will have to worry about.

Yakuza Dead Souls is not a bad game – it is a good game ruined by broken mechanics. Its story, scripting and sense of humour can’t make up for that. If you’re a long-standing fan of the Yakuza series, you’ll want to see how it all ends, but be prepared to endure a lot of pain before you get there. Otherwise, it’s best to stick to Yakuza 4 and pretend that this disappointing entry never happened.

The clever script provided many laugh-out-loud moments, and the monster variety and leveling system made me feel powerful even against hundreds of opponents. Like a slightly more presentable Deadly Premonition, Dead Souls mimics B-horror movies. It has a blemished, blood-soaked face that’s going to scare off some gamers, but there’s a lot of heart and fun to be found by those willing to dig beneath the ghoulish surface.
