Yakuza 4 Screen Shots

Yakuza 4 is a Strategy game available on the PS3. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.

Yakuza 4 is a Strategy game. Strategy games provide experiences that require quick thinking, and forward planning from the gamer. They combine the unfolding tactics of classic games like chess, with more recent board games such as Risk. Usually focusing on a theatre of war context, players enjoy the tactical overview of the battle these games provide.

Yakuza 4 can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.


Yakuza 4

Yakuza 4 PS3 is cut from the same cloth as its predecessor, but hopes to freshen things up with new playable characters, each sporting a unique fighting style.

Yakuza 4 continues the series' brutal fighting and storytelling in the streets of a fictional but realistically rendered version of Tokyo's red light district. The appearance and core mechanics are unchanged from Yakuza 3, although new locations have been added including rooftop and underground areas, which give the city more vertical structure.
