Yakuza: Like a Dragon is not perfect, though. The AI can be a bit wonky when it comes to the environment and mechanics, with sometime glitches where enemies get caught behind an object and cannot make their way around. But the success of the risks taken with the rest of the game honestly makes it easy to live with this.
Meanwhile, the change in format (bringing it closer to the mainstream success Persona enjoys) and addition of English voice acting, means that this is the most accessible Yakuza release we have seen in years, if not ever. The flaws that exist don’t take much away from how compelling it is overall – and for the first time in years, I am actually interested to see what they do with the next Yakuza game. Bring it on, Sega.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon impressively pulls off the switch to an RPG in style, providing an excellent combat system supported by loveable characters, and a tantalising main storyline with meaningful side quests.
