When comparing the original Yakuza game to later installments, it's easy to see how much the game's graphics, storytelling and gameplay have aged over time. Even when compared to Yakuza 2, which is also on the PS2, it's not a very good game. Luckily, Yakuza Kiwami is here to save the day. Kiwami is a remake of Yakuza 1 built from the ground up using Yakuza 0's engine and much of its assets. As the game is mostly Yakuza 0 with a new coat of paint, Kiwami is being sold at a lower price, making this a great game for people new to the series. The game runs at 1080p 60fps, even on the original PS4 (which is what I played through the game with). While you can't fix Yakuza 1's storytelling, the gameplay and graphics have been dramatically improved over the original. Combos, in all fighting styles, flow well and are fun to pull off. Kamurocho is recreated with incredible detail, and Kiwami, while it isn't fully voiced (play Yakuza 6 for that), more of the game's cutscenes are voiced than before. However, the game is a bit on the shorter side, as it took me just over 15 hours to beat the first time around. Overall, Yakuza Kiwami is a great game, at a great price, and I'm definitely coming back to play it again.
