Alright 80%

It took me a while, but I am happy to say that I have accepted this as a worthy YAKUZA spinoff. I won't lie -- initially, JUDGMENT didn't impress me too much. While all the minigames and fun side quests we've come to expect from any given RGG Studios game are present and accounted for, the core gameplay loop has been altered to fit this game's new direction. There's less of a focus on combat (at least at first) and what there is of it is wors... Read More

Fair 70%

- Visuals & Performance - A Ryuga Gotoku game has never looked better than this. The motion capture is amazingly implemented into cineastic cutscenes, the martial arts sequences look absolutely fantastic and Kamurocho, the secret star of all Yakuza games, has never looked more vibrant, more beautiful and more inviting to explore. Characteristically for the Yakuza franchise there is quite a discrepancy between the visual quality of „important... Read More

Storyline

A lawyer pulls off a miracle, only to have the verdict cost him everything. Now, as a string of murders casts a shroud over the city and the law begins to fail, justice cannot afford to be blind.

The son of a murdered lawyer, Takayuki Yagami was raised on the streets of Kamurocho by a yakuza patriarch who paves the way for Yagami to follow in his real father's footsteps. Taking a job at the Genda Law Office, Yagami accepts a high-profile case: Proving Shinpei Okubo, a man suspected of murder, innocent.

Against all odds, Yagami succeeds and is hailed as a hero, but his prolific career is short-lived. Only months later, Okubo brutally murders his girlfriend, stabbing her over ten times with a kitchen knife before setting their apartment on fire.

Yagami becomes the lawyer who let a murderer walk - and everything he had worked for comes crashing down.

Three years later, Yagami has taken off his lawyer's badge to run a small detective agency in the red-light district of Kamurocho, scraping by on odd jobs and evidence collection.

But even a city as seedy as this is shaken by a string of serial murders, where the victims' bodies are discovered with their eyes gouged out. Yagami is drawn into the case by his old law firm, where he discovers that in order to bring this killer to light, he must seek the truth that slipped from his grasp three years ago. But can a man haunted by his failures prevail over his own past?
