Playing the games that you have alot of memories with is always fun, especially if it's with upgraded visuals. If you recently played Yakuza 6 or the remastered version of Yakuza 2, you might not be that amazed with this collection's visuals, but it's still a nice addition to the series for the fans.

These are some of the finest video games ever made, with no hyperbole. The storytelling is absolutely masterful, gripping and enthralling, filled with characters that the audience will fall in love with. Each title filled with magnificent cinematography and choreography, in not just the dramatic FMV sequences, but just as much so in the fights on the streets.

Despite the remaster by itself having a few problems and being just reasonable, it doesn't take away from how incredible and impressive the games in this collection are, allowing players who just recently had contact with the series to play some of its best games.

Three brilliant games, that complete the Kazuma story in one platform. Still it is a remaster, not the "Kiwami treatment" we enjoyed in the two previous games.

The Yakuza Remastered Collection does an excellent job of bringing three games from last generation to the current gaming systems. We are nearing the end of the PlayStation 4, it seems appropriate for this trio of games to arrive now. We are not looking at a complete reworking of the original titles, but a few quality of life improvements and an improved coat of paint on the visuals is certainly appreciated. Fans of the series won’t find much new here, but they will probably enjoy the newfound polish. Newcomers will want to play these versions, as they are the definitive take on these three games. Packing the three titles together at an attractive price is also a win. These are massive games – cancel any plans you might have for the next few weeks as you undertake these titles, but they are certainly worth it.

The Yakuza Remastered Collections is definitely a worthy pack with a bunch of new additions to the original game and enhanced visuals that makes it fit roughly into the current-gen gaming platforms. Although the collection should've arrived earlier than Yakuza 6, yet you shouldn't miss it if you are eager to dig into Kazuma Kiryu's past.

For old fans and new fans alike, I could not recommend this enough. If you played the originals on Playstation 2 and Playstation 3 and just want to round out your collection on Playstation 4, or if you started with Yakuza 0 and never went back for the old titles, these are a great addition to your catalog of games. If I could sum up my entire thoughts, I would have to borrow one of Kiryu’s little comments: “That’s rad!”

Even though the visual remastering is a touch on the modest side, Sega have nonetheless done great work here. With reworked localizations, improved sidestory finding and smoother gameplay overall, the Yakuza Remastered Collection nonetheless proves itself as the definitive way to play Sega's PS3 trio of core Yakuza games.

Yakuza Remastered Collection has brought three of the best Yakuza games to PS4. As always, you have the long story mode which consist of an exciting story and engaging combat. But there's not a huge improvement in visuals and Yakuza 3 can look down right ugly sometimes. The English dub is still missing and you have to read long text boxes, which can be tiring. With all this, Yakuza Remastered Collection is a valuable choice for fans of Action Adventure games and specially for fans of Yakuza series.

As someone who only came to the Yakuza games when Zero was released, getting the chance to play the whole series now is something that really appeals.

The Yakuza Remastered Collection is a must have for Yakuza fans old and new alike. Riveting stories, endearing characters, fun gameplay and tons of content can be found in all three games. And thanks to the power of the PS4, Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 have never looked so good.

The Yakuza Remastered Collection shows that Sega understands the importance of this series and how much it means to its worldwide fandom. By updating the visuals, framerate, adding characters and content, and just proving that they are invested in the long haul for this series, shows that Sega is starting to get itself back in the game. This collection is worthy of any Yakuza fan's money.

If you've not grown tired of the standard Yakuza formula yet, you definitely won't regret buying The Yakuza Remastered Collection either. Even though it shows the games are bit older, the main reasons why we love the series are definitely still there.
