Yakuza 4 Remastered Review

    Yakuza 4 Remastered tells a brand new story through 3 new protagonists that are all connected in one way or another. Here is our Yakuza 4 Remastered Review.

    It was developed by Ryū Ga Gotoku Studios and published by SEGA, it was released on January 17, 2019, for PlayStation 4, and later for Xbox One, and PC.

    Kiryu is returning with 3 brand new characters you can play as, and while this is great in some ways, it kind of becomes boring in other aspects. Just like the other reviews of Yakuza, I will not really talk about the story, because even telling stuff from the beginning can be spoilers. Shun Akiyama is the 1st playable character, he is a generous “loan shark” who doesn’t charge interest or a payback date, but he does let people do a test to see if they are worth the money. Coming from homelessness, he knows how hard the world is and now that he has money, he wants to help as many people as possible, this is where Lily comes in, who needs 100 million yen.

    In part 2 we change to Taiga Saejima, a friend of Majima who you might recognize if you have played Yakuza 0. For his story, we start off with a prison break together with none other than Goh Hamazaki, they come across a massive secret revealed late in the game and Seajima turns out to be the biggest muscle of the group with some heavy attacks. For part 3 we get to play as Masayoshi Tanimura, a police officer who does things a bit of a different way and loves to gamble, this is something we also see back in one of the better substories. Out of all the parts, this kinda is the worst one because it just drags on a bit too long with the substories.

    In part 4 we play as the guy we all know and love Kiryu who is here to tie everything together. The story out of all the games leading up to Yakuza 4 is the worst so far, but it’s not bad by any means. It just is a bit more of the same compared to all the other games and all the substories are also the same with some different characters and places. I just wish there was some more variety, especially in the substories. It seems like 95% of the side activities are just not really needed other than playing baseball once where you have to hit 1 ball and the host club. It’s just rather disappointing.

    Each character has their own fighting style and while it is cool, I didn’t really like the fighting style of Seajima and Tanimura, they just feel very slow compared to the other ones and are not that fun to fight with. When I finally got to Kiryu I absolutely started loving the game again, but sadly, his part in the game is not that big.

    The game looks visually fine, it looks like your typical PS4 game and the faces are also a bit improved in the substories as well, something that I had an issue with in Yakuza 3. Nothing really is out of the ordinary, but being limited to only 1 city this time kinda felt boring after a while as well, especially having to run around with 4 different characters.
