First Yakuza: Dead Souls Review
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:02:51 pm »
I placed this in the review topics as well

The game scored a 7 at Destructoid

http://www.destructoid.com/review-yakuza-dead-souls-220956.phtml

They're basically saying it starts out fun but that the apeal wears off after awhile, become slightly repetitive. The comments are actually quite positive, if not few. I really hope this game does well however

Anyone planning to get this? Personally I won't since I lack the money after getting a 3ds

I'm gonna get it. Yakuza 4 only got an 8 out of 10 from IGN or something (or was it 7?) and it deserved about EIGHT MILLION out of 10 so...

It was a 7.

Yakuza Dead Souls has terrible mechanics that you find in a late 90s/early 00s game, extremely repetative and an insane extreme hard mode.

DAY ONE... AGAIN! IN ENGLISH THIS TIME!

If Yakuza 5 is not brought over I am holding you personally responsible!1!!1!!!

@Aki

I..I..I might eventually :-\. February doesn't look like a month where many games are gonna interest me so I think i'll be able to get it together with Binary Domain if nothing else catches my eye.

Tbh I have a feeling dead souls is not gonna do that well. Shooter fans prefer good controls and Yakuza fans may want the real deal instead. But considering how zombie games are so popular nowadays, I could be surprised.

So the site that gave Vanquish a 5/10 gave this game a 7/10?

Lets be honest, Vanquish shooting makes Yakuza Dead Souls feel like a PSone game. WTF is wrong with Destructoid, I don't know.
