Storyline

One year has passed since Kazuma Kiryu, "yakuza with the heart of gold", defeated his biggest adversary. Despite this victory, Kazuma has lost more than he had ever imagined. But events from the past continue to haunt him. A man he had admired so much, who was like a father to him, has revealed a terrible secret before he died. It's time for Kazuma to solve the mystery once and for all. Caught in the eternal fight between Kantou and Kansai, the Eastern and the Western organized crime groups of Japan, he soon realizes that there are other powers on the stage, including a mysterious Korean organization that seems to be connected somehow to his past.

Improves on the 1st...
2 August 2010 | by Logic404See all my reviews

I liked the the first Yakuza and gave it an 8 even with the numerous problems it had. The story kicked ass hence the 8.

The 2nd game improves on the story, fighting mechanics and the speed of loading is faster. Also the length of the game is quite a bit longer than the 1st. It also has Japanese voice acting. The first had English voice acting but Japanese works better with the tone of the game. The story really kept my attention with all the little twists and turns.

These Yakuza games have always been for niche audiences but to me they are very fun adventures and I'm looking forward to starting the 3rd chapter very soon. (I've finished the 3rd and the 2nd is still my fave)
