From VG247: “Its understandable why Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the way it is. After making six numbered entries in the series and a handful of spin-offs, its probably fair to say the team behind it was getting a little bit bored. Why just make another one of those? Thats the question thats led to this weird, zany and brilliant mash-up of a game.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a Yakuza game to its very core. It features a wistfully realistic recreation of a slice of a Japanese city where the player tools around advancing a story of mob bosses, pride and honor while undertaking a gloriously eclectic range of side activities. All of that is familiar but the most different aspect of Like a Dragon is also the most common element of the game: combat.
