Yakuza Kiwami 2 has the Yakuza formula perfected, making it an absolute must for fans of the series, and a jolly good ride for those who haven’t even tangoed with the charming Kazuma Kiryu before. If this truly is the last Yakuza game starring Kiryu to be on the receiving end of the remake treatment, at least he’s going out with a mighty bang.
If you’re tired of the same experience with grimdark AAA series year after year, then it’s time to look to games like Yakuza Kiwami 2. Instead of playing as “rebellious girl with a dirty face whose dad died” or “beefy moody soldier who has become the enemy he hates,” you can go hit the batting cages with Kiryu and hang out in an accessible and enthralling slice of 2006 Japan.
The story itself is one of the best in the series as well, with a healthy mix of new characters and a rare usage of a love story as a way to add new characters to the mix and add depth to existing ones. It looks and sounds great and the Dragon engine enables the combat to flow far better than than it did before. It’s a must-buy for any Yakuza fan and also makes a fine starting point thanks to its thorough recap of the first game.
