Game Description:As the story begins, it's business is as usual in Kamurocho. Soon, however, all hell breaks loose as a zombie outbreak turns the area into a quarantine zone, walled off by the Japanese Self Defense Force. This quarantine zone gradually expands as the story progresses. Real-life shops and signs from the quarantine zone add a sense of realism to the scene. Added to the sub stories is a new "Buddy" system, where players can recruit and fight alongside local residents, further enhances gameplay. And as for corporate tie-in products and stores - a hallmark of the Ryu-Ga-Gotoku series - of The End features more of them than ever before. Two Kamurochos for you to explore to your heart's content: the blazing neon streets of the red-light district, and the desperate squalor of the quarantine zone.

Yakuza: Dead Souls is not a good shooter, nor is it what people expect from a Yakuza game, yet taken on its own merits it's an extraordinarily quirky, delightful experiment with lots of humor and a distinctly Japanese flavor. Stiff controls and lengthy load times hold it back from being as good as it could have been, but it proves that there's still some life left in massacring the undead.
