Critic Reviews for Lost Judgment: The Kaito Files
Aside from the near total lack of side content, The Kaito Files has everything that you'd expect from a Yakuza-style experience. Its shorter length actually works in its favour, allowing for a well paced story that doesn't get caught up on overplayed plot points or filler missions. As RGG Studio's first crack at a proper expansion, it's a roaring success.
Even with a weaker fighting system, though, The Kaito Files is more than worth the purchase for any fan of the series. Fantastic writing, enjoyable characters, and a gripping narrative make this experience another highlight in the series, more than proving that Kaito is worthy of being a protagonist.
The Kaito Files delves into Takayuki Yagami's handyman shoulder, introducing very interesting revelations about Kaito's past and, above all, exhibited with great elegance. It is an additional chapter focused on brawls that, unfortunately, forces its protagonist to submit to some gameplay dynamics that marry poorly with his most violent and animalistic nature, as well as being made with a questionable level of care.

The Kaito Files is everything a DLC needs to be, bringing new elements to its combat, in addition to a very good story, which impacts the future of the franchise and justifies its existence. The only downside is its price and duration. If you're a fan of the base game, you'll really enjoy this expansion.

If you’re already into both of the Judgment games, you’ll know what to expect out of this DLC. It’s got more of the quality writing that manages to expertly mix humorous moments with extremely serious themes, which is a mainstay of the Yakuza series as a whole and continues to be so here. I’ll never need an excuse to jump back and explore that world, and having a story as great as this is more than enough reason to sniff and keep my ears perked around the seedy well-threaded streets of Tokyo’s fictional red light district again and again.
