4.5 Flawed fun. camparkin | 19/12/2012 | See all camparkin's reviews (1) I'm a big fan of the Yakuza series. Its strong narrative with character focus and boundless gameplay ensures a great amount of fun as well as challenge. But Yakuza with Zombies? Surely not.Well they did and turns out it is a half great game half bad.Good- StoryLots to doOpen-worldMini-games (from golf to pool to Japanese gambling)Great Japanese voice-actingLots of fun and on harder difficulties presents an almighty challengeCons- Terrible cameraRepetition grows tiresome in later chapters with hordes of zombies to go throughGraphics can be largely dull with a hefty use of grey and jarring. Also the res gets really slow when there is a lot on screen.Poor game design in placesShooting mechanics are average at bestOverall I enjoyed it. Fun, different and cheap. Certainly one of the more entertaining games I have played. Yet while entertaining, it does not cover up the flaws of poor game design choices and in the bulk of the game when facing zombies in later levels, it really does begin to grind. Yet there is plenty on offer here and I would recommend it to the gamers that want to try something different. Just don't expect Uncharted-type quality gameplay.
