    Tokyo 1988. Getting rich is easy, the women are beautiful, and everyone wants in on the action. It's time to become Yakuza.

    The glitz, glamour, and unbridled decadence of the 80s are back in Yakuza 0!
    Fight like hell through Tokyo and Osaka with protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and series regular Goro Majima. Play as Kazuma Kiryu and discover how he finds himself in a world of trouble when a simple debt collection goes wrong and his mark winds up murdered. Then, step into the silver-toed shoes of Goro Majima and explore his "normal" life as the proprietor of a cabaret club.

    Switch between three different fighting styles instantaneously and beat up all manner of goons, thugs, hoodlums, and lowlifes. Take combat up a notch by using environmental objects such as bicycles, sign posts, and car doors for bone-crunching combos and savage take-downs.

    Fighting is not the only way to kill time in 1988's Japan: from discos and hostess clubs to classic SEGA arcades, there are tons of distractions to pursue in the richly detailed, neon-lit world.

    This series is better than it has any business being. If you’re tired of the cookie cutter, hum-drum crap coming out of big studios, Yakuza 0 is the prescription for you.

    Yakuza 0s slice of eighties Japan is gaudy, over the top and gloriously unashamed of itself in all the ways a majority of PC games aren't. The combination of fast paced combat, melodrama, comedy and mini-games provide a ton of fun for the asking price and the conversion from console to PC has been a resounding success. Absolutely worth your money and time.

    Comfortably the best, funniest and most heartwarming game about a desperate battle over real estate, now available on PC as a good port at a generous price.

    Yakuza 0 is an eccentric, engaging and brutal game, perfectly adapted to the PC platform.

    The technical limits of the engine are felt, especially on PC, but the general quality of the fun game allows you to quietly overlook the weaker aspects of a graphical aspect that, in any case, does not create real obstacles to the enjoyment of the game.

    A remarkable debut in all of its different aspects that will certainly be appreciated by those who are yet to test the franchise. It is a perfect conversion to PC that has undoubtedly earned SEGA some praise, although the lack of Spanish language is still an issue.

    It feels weird to experience the franchise that called Sony consoles a home on the PC for the first time. Having said that, the port is extremely polished and should be a good indication for things to come.

    I'm not kidding when I say that this is the best game that I've ever played. It had probably been around 15 years since I put over sixty hoursI'm not kidding when I say that this is the best game that I've ever played. It had probably been around 15 years since I put over sixty hours into a game, but every facet of this drew me in. I think about 80% of that was on the mini games alone, but yes...get this game. It's well worth it. Expand

    Yes, more ports!
