As a direct remaster, previous frustrations remain, such as the lengthy target tailing sequences and unnecessary drone crafting mechanics. But when you’ve got such an engaging story packed with content and a keen sense of style, Remastered is undeniably the best way to play Judgment.

By and large, if you already have Judgment on the PS4, its remaster is hard to recommend. There isn’t much that’s new here, after all, and spending additional money on a nearly identical experience doesn’t make much sense. That said, if you’ve never played Judgment before, this is an extremely easy recommendation. It tells an excellent story, offers a ton of varied and enjoyable content, and delivers an extremely polished take on the classic Yakuza formula.

As mentioned, this remaster is geared for newcomers and so it's the best way to experience the game, even if it isn't a must-play for those who already experienced it on last-gen. Luckily, those who are returning to Judgment Remastered may also have reason to hold out hope for something brand new.

Judgment is a successful spinoff from the Yakuza series that simply demands a follow-up. If Yakuza: Like a Dragon is pulling the main series towards turn-based combat, then Judgment would be an excellent place to continue exploring its real-time brawler roots. If you’re looking for a next-gen title that will deliver much more than just pretty visuals, it’s well worth a purchase on the PS5! If, however, you already own the title on the PS4, your money is likely better spent on other games (You HAVE played Yakuza: Like a Dragon, right?)

If you’ve already played the game on PS4 then there’s little here to warrant a replay. But if not, you should definitely consider picking Judgment up now that it’s available on more formats whether you’re a Yakuza fan or not.

Judgment is a truly gripping detective thriller, and it plays better than ever on PS5. As a standalone adventure, it's an excellent action RPG, boasting some outstanding storytelling and a brilliant cast of characters. And as a Yakuza spinoff, it's arguably the perfect gateway into SEGA's stellar series.

Judgment has its flaws, but it does give you a fresh take on the established Yakuza formula, and the story and characters bring some much-needed realism that sets the game apart. The gameplay additions, while they don’t always hit the mark, at least represent an attempt to keep things interesting. If you haven’t yet played Judgment, this new Remastered version is absolutely the way to play it.
Chris "Atom" DeAngelusApr 26, 2021
All in all, Judgment is still one of the better titles in the Yakuza franchise. The biggest flaw it had and continues to have is that it feels a bit too familiar and a bit too safe, but it's a lot easier to accept that in the wake of Yakuza: Like A Dragon. The plot is interesting, the characters are fun, the gameplay is charming, and overall, it's just a darn good game.
Diego PerezApr 22, 2021
Judgment is proof that the Yakuza formula works even with a fresh set of faces. I really hope we get to see more of these characters in a sequel or future spinoff, especially if the detective side content gets a little more love the next time around.
Joe ApseyApr 22, 2021
Judgement is a fine and serviceable port of the PS4 game, but apart from enhanced visuals and 60 FPS gameplay, the overall experience doesn't feel that much more enhanced than what you saw on PS4. This is definitely the way to play for newcomers but those who have already seen Yagami's journey through shouldn't worry about missing much here.
Matt GosperApr 23, 2021
If you never got the chance to play this underappreciated gem, it’s well worth checking it out on new-gen consoles. Prior knowledge of the Yakuza series is not needed, as the game stands on its own narratively. The game’s core mystery is enthralling to unravel, and there’s almost too much else going on around the city to enjoy while you derail the plot. Crack out your case book, crack your knuckles and get going.
Kieron VerbruggeApr 27, 2021
Judgment on the new generation of consoles might not be a must-play for anyone who already enjoyed it on the PS4, but it's absolutely the best way to play the game and still represents a fantastic jumping off point for anyone keen to dip their toes into the Yakuza franchise.

El juego en sí mismo es Recomendado, pero esta versión es algo escasa de novedades para ser una edición vendida a precio completo sin posibilidad de actualización gratuita.
Paula CroftMay 02, 2021
Judgment es un spin-off imprescindible para los fans de la saga Yakuza y más que recomendable para todo jugador al que le llame la atención el género del thriller de suspense y asesinatos. En la piel de Takayuki Yagami descubriremos una historia interesante y repleta de giros, con un toque de humor propio de las obras del Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio y una buena dosis de drama, acción y nuevas mecánicas jugables.
Gonçalo TabordaJun 29, 2021
Judgment é uma excelente opção para quem quer entrar sem compromissos no universo de Yakuza, mas isso não significa que as dores de adaptação não existam. Os

Judgment si conferma un titolo eccellente anche su PS5. Il rinnovato comparto tecnico, forte di una risoluzione aumentata ma soprattutto di un frame rate stabilissimo a 60 fps, adegua l'estetica del gioco alle capacità della nuova console Sony, consegnandoci un'ambientazione ampia e affascinante, ma anche scontri frenetici e spettacolari che si svolgono in maniera trasparente, senza attese o delimitazioni.
Mateusz WróbelMay 05, 2021
Judgment jest piękną grą i jednocześnie spokojnym, przebaczającym błędy wejściem w uniwersum Yakuzy. Świetny scenariusz i żyjący świat, który mógł, a raczej powinien lepiej prezentować się na PS5. Niestety, ale wersja na obecną konsolę Sony nie zasługuje na więcej niż osiem oczek.

در مجموع نسخه‌ی بهبود یافته‌ی عنوان جاجمنت با تغییراتی جزیی در بخش گرافیک عرضه شده است. به لطف مواردی مثل لودینگ‌های سریع یا افت فریم‌های کمتر نسبت به نسخه‌ی پیشین می‌توان گفت، اگر هنوز این بازی را تجربه نکرده‌اید بهتر است برای بازی کردن آن به سراغ نسخه‌ی بهبودیافته‌ی آن بروید.
