its fun but it's not the typical yakuza experience. Worth a try if you can get it cheap. But don't expect it be anything like the main series. it's not canon.

I've played very little, so take my comments with a grain of salt...

The controls feel clunky (need some getting used too).
I personally could not get immersed into the game because everything is in Japanese with English sub-text.
Sometimes things were just way too ridiculous for me to take serious...but this game seems to be more zany than serious, so its not meant to be taken seriously.

I personally feel that this game had potential, but it just never reaches the place where it could have been fun.
But this is just my personal opinion, and you may end up loving it...?

BTW
I like Dead Rising, but just could not get into this game at all.
But some like it, and some do not.

If you are looking for a zombie game, then I would suggest...

Dead Island
Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare
Dead Rising 2
Yakuza: Dead Souls (this topic)
House of Dead: Overkill (on-rails shooter)

A lot more fun than Yakuza 4 overall. And a damn good zombie game.

It's not a game aimed at the Western market, so adjust your expectations accordingly. I had a lot of fun with it (probably put in about 25 hours), but it is definitely not for everyone. It is by far the worst game in the series, but it is an off-shoot, so it deserves some leeway there.

I'd give Yakuza 3 and 4 a score range of 8 or 9 out of 10, I'd give Dead Souls a 6. Based on consumer demands in North America though, it would probably be a 5 for the general population.

I haven't played yakuza 3 but hopefully will get it for 10 to 15 dollars. I am about to beat yakuza 2.

3 starts slow, but it is fantastic later on.

4 is...good. It tried something VERY stupid with the story.

Dead Souls was my first experience with the Yakuza series and I love it. I got Yakuza 3 for $9 at Gamestop and its soooo slow in the beginning. I'm pushing myself to keep going.
