Score: 8/10
Time to Complete: 30 hours (Approx 60 if doing some sidequests)
Time to 100%: 100+ hours
Similar games: Sleeping Dogs (for gameplay), Mafia II (for story), Akiba's Trip (for wackiness)

For reference, this is the first Yakuza game I have ever played.

PROS:
A Game of Two Halves – The games' primary strength comes from two fronts: Its intensity and its ridiculousness. Its storyline is a fascinating one about betrayal, love, political intrigue, revenge, corruption. A lot of the cutscenes are INTENSE. Expect to see a lot of old, stern-looking Japanese men argue, shout and swear and try to kill each other. Some of the fighting scenes are brutal, with a handful having the same kind of intensity I would expect from something like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (the sewer tunnel and boat come to mind in particular). Some moments are very somber. Some even made me cry. This is a game that takes itself very seriously.

Well, sometimes. See here's the thing: On the other side it is utterly silly. Expect to be prancing around singing songs in karaoke or hitting the dance floor and busting a move. Asking call girls what they're wearing so you can meet them and go out on dates. Help a pervert find his mojo. Get in a fight with a big buff bald man who wants to steal your hair? Watch softcore videos of dozens of Japanese girls. This doesn't even scratch the surface of what kind of craziness is on offer.

It's completely insane how the game jackknifes between these two states, receive death-threats and have an attack on your life and then go and play some darts. Deal with a kidnapping then go to race tiny remote-controlled cars. It's something that makes the game very unique, very special.

The Minigames & Sidequests – And what a huge selection there are! Bowling, darts, karaoke, dancing, real estate, casino, fishing.. the list goes on and on. There's a real spectrum of entertainment on offer. Some are great fun, some aren't, but a special shoutout to the cabaret minigame which I got ADDICTED to big time.

CONS:
Endgame & Some Minigames – Found the endgame content to be pretty grindy once the main storyline had been completed and some conditions had to been met for certain sidequests. Some minigames are a pain, particularly the catfighting one which was just pure random luck and required me to break my fingers button mashing. Some minigames are very distinctly Japanese and could have done with being explained a bit better.

CONCLUSION:
Yakuza 0 was a great game, lots of fun and I eagerly await the next installment: Yakuza Kiwami on Steam.
