Mini Review Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS5) - Not a Huge Upgrade, But Still a Brilliant RPG
A hero's work is never done
The tale of incredibly endearing protagonist Ichiban Kasuga shines brighter than ever on PlayStation 5, where Yakuza: Like a Dragon offers enhanced visuals. This next-gen upgrade lets you choose between 60 frames-per-second at a slightly higher resolution, or 30 frames-per-second with 4K support. And, well... That's about...

Guide All Yakuza / Like a Dragon Games Ranked: Which Yakuza Games to Play and Where to Start
SEGA's Yakuza or Like a Dragon series has been around since the days of the PlayStation 2, but only over the last half a decade or so has it really started to seep into the consciousness of a wider Western audience. This is largely thanks to 2017's Yakuza 0, which sparked a whole new wave of interest on PlayStation 4. It helped, of...
About The Game
RISE LIKE A DRAGON
Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn't commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most.
Confused and alone, he embarks on a mission to discover the truth behind his family's betrayal and take his life back, becoming an unlikely hero for the city’s outcasts on his journey.
LEVEL UP FROM UNDERDOG TO DRAGON IN DYNAMIC RPG COMBAT
Experience dynamic RPG combat like none other. Switch between 19 unique Jobs ranging from Bodyguard to Musician, and use the battlefield your weapon. Take up bats, umbrellas, bikes, street signs, and everything else at your disposal to crack some skulls!
ENTER THE UNDERWORLD PLAYGROUND
When you're not busy bashing heads, relax by hitting up the local arcade for some classic SEGA games, compete with locals in a no holds barred go-kart race around Yokohama, complete 50 unique substories, or just take in the scenery of a modern-day Japanese city. There’s always something new around the corner.
Fantastic game is only hurt by the insane grinding that’s required to get past a few boss battles. I spent about 50 hours progressing nicely through the game to get to about 75% completion, and the final 25% completion took another 40 hours to get my characters’ levels up to between 70-75.
—Keep buying and upgrading weapons at the Romance Workshop. Even if you don’t need the weapons, crafting them will improve your intellect, style, etc.
—Spend the necessary time it takes to make Ichiban’s Confections a big business success. It’ll get you the 20Mil yen needed to invest in the Romance Workshop.
—As soon as you get Job EXP boosters, equip them! It’ll save grinding time. Do a Google search for “yakuza like a dragon job exp boosters“ and the NEO Seeker website page will tell you where to get ‘em.
—Grind at the battle arena….again and again and again. This will get you awesome armor, lots of leveling up EXP, and lots of money (which, again, you can use to invest in the Romance Workshop).
—SAVE YOUR GAME prior to starting areas that ask “are you ready?” Once you enter those areas, you won’t be able to save (and auto-save won’t kick in) until you finish the area and/or beat the bosses.
—You don’t need too many HP items because, after you win a battle, you can hit the options button and then press square to auto-refill your HP (on easy and normal difficulty). HOWEVER, you SHOULD buy lots of MP boosters to replenish your numbers before and during battles.
—I jacked up my players’ dexterity as much as I could. That stat increases the odds that you’ll evade the enemies’ attacks.
