Street-fightin’ Yakuza-style

Friday, May 12, 2006, 11:53AM EST

Taking the action onto Tokyo’s mean streets comes Sega’s Yakuza. A gritty brawler set in an urban environment, ruled by the gangsters’ traditional system of honor, respect, and loyalty, it combines a deep storyline from award-winning novelist Seishu Hase, with stylish fighting mechanics. Available for PlayStation 2, it follows the path of former gang member Kiryu Kazuma, finally out of prison after a 10 year stretch. Thankfully, there will be plenty of available action moves so you can simultaneously take out multiple enemies with combos, as well as smashing them into walls and tables, and picking up scenery to use as weapons. Kiryu also increases his strength, stamina, and skills the more successfully you fight, while his heat gauge provides an adrenaline boost to get you out of any tight spots.
