Set in a fully realised, authentic recreation of Tokyo's "Sin-City District" the deep and interweaving crime drama of Yakuza 4 unfolds through the eyes of four unique and dangerous characters. Playing as the legendary Kazuma Kiryu, the loan shark Akiyama, escaped convict Saejima or detective Tanimura, players will need to survive the dangers and temptations of the Japanese underworld.

Yakuza 4 picks up the story of Yakuza 3 one year later and takes the player back to Tokyo. The story starts when a man is shot to death in the ruling territory of the Tojo Clan, the organisation that has featured in all games in the series to date. A small gang which belongs to Tojo Clan try to establish what happened and their leader is soon found stabbed to death. These events cause a heated battle between four men over money, power, status and honour. The truth becomes apparent as the lies, betrayals and entwined stories are revealed and when these 4 unflinching men get together, the new legend of Kamurocho is born.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

  • Experience the Japanese underworld under the guise of 4 characters: it would not be a Yakuza game if you couldn't still play as Kazuma, but now play as three of the other key characters from the franchise. Each character has different missions and allows the player to explore the city from different viewpoints and engage in the Japanese underworld more than has ever been seen before.
  • Authentic replication of Tokyo: In addition to the bright lights of downtown Tokyo, players can now go into the depths of the intricate underground, explore the backstreets of the city and take in the views from the rooftops of buildings
  • Become the ultimate fighter: Enhanced battle mechanics and a new fighter training system allow players to work of their skills and become the ultimate fighter
  • Deep Japanese story: An intricate storyline that incorporates all aspects of Japanese culture including hostess bars, karaoke and city exploration

 A truly great RPG

For newcomers to the series, the Yakuza games are a series of RPG beat-em-ups which put you in the shoes of Kazuma Kiryu, an unusually noble Yakuza (Japanese Mafia) member, who keeps getting dragged back into the life. They're most noted for their detailed cities to explore, strong stories, intriguing characters, and fun beat-em-up gameplay.

This time though, you don't just play as Kazuma, you're also put into the shoes of 3 other characters.

First there's Tanimura, a corrupt cop, with a
passion for gambling. Saejima, a man on the run after serving 25 years on death row and Akiyama, a loan shark. Each character has their own unique style of fighting and the combat is just as fun as ever.

There are a huge amount of sidequests and minigames to play, such as Golf, Ping Pong, Darts and Poker. So far i've clocked up around 20 hours, but there's still so much left for me to do.

Yakuza 4 is a very unique game and is, in my opinion, one of the strongest games that has come out so far this year.

Note: The game is dubbed in Japanese with English subtitles, which some people will like and some won't. Personally I prefer it in Japanese (it would be kind of weird travelling around japan with everyone speaking perfect english)

 Another great installment to the Yakuza series

What can I say? If you're a fan of action-adventure games and/or Japanese culture then this is a great game to buy, if you want to get all of the trophies you're looking at about 100 hours gameplay, and virtually all of it is engaging and fun (minus some irritating fishing).

I have been a long time fan of the Yakuza games and 4 is easily the best in the series so far.

Highly reccomend!
