These are the reviews for Like a Dragon Gaiden
A spin-off could be a lukewarm cash grab or the acquisition of a new franchise. With Like a Dragon Gaiden, both seem to be true, depending on who you ask.
The press strongly criticized the title of the work. on Metacritic The PC version got 77 points out of 100. The score is not bad, but it is lower compared to other branches. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has 83 points, Yakuza: Like a Dragon has 84 points. Many testers lacked innovation – both in story and gameplay. There is also criticism that the campaign is much shorter than other parts of the series.
Things look very different on Steam. Here 96 percent of all players say they like it (very positive). The number of players is also impressive, with a peak of 12,684 users logged in at the same time (via SteamDB). Like a Dragon Gaiden is celebrated by many users as the best in the series. The return of the traditional combat system (instead of turn-based combat) was also well received. Obviously anyone who played the other roles gets their money’s worth.
If you can’t get enough of the series, you’re in for a treat. At the beginning of the year like a dragon: Ehin! Another cross. This is a remake of a samurai adventure that was previously released only in Japan. SEGA also has another demo in the works. Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be released on January 26, 2024.
