Like a Dragon: Ishin! Review – A Fun But Dated Yakuza Spinoff

Only Japan got to experience the magic of RyĆ« ga Gotoku Ishin! as it was released on PlayStation 3 and 4 in 2014. However, the popularity of the series known as Yakuza resulted in the remake Like a Dragon: Ishin! arriving for next-gen consoles. As a spinoff that takes place in the Edo period of Japan, the setting is different from the modern Yakuza video games, but the themes about doing what’s right in the face of adversity still remains here.


Like a Dragon: Ishin! boasts a powerful storyline and engaging combat system, even if it is let down by its previous-gen limitations.

Outstanding storyline
Fantastic combat system
Captivating world

The designs vary in quality
Limited world to explore

Score: 84/100
