Yakuza Remastered Collection Reviews
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.

This collection is a must have for any Yakuza players that are familiar with the series and want to jump straight into the story after Yakuza Kiwami 2.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection adds three more Yakuza games to Xbox Game Pass, and they all are excellent story-driven action games that can be enjoyed on their own or as a single chapter in the series.
This trio of games still creak a bit even with this fresh coat of paint and support for both higher resolutions and 60 fps gameplay, but they're still easily worth a play, particularly at this bargain bundle price.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection is not a complete rebuild a la Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2. While the visuals are much improved over what they looked like as much as 10 years ago, they are definitely showing their age. But with so much story, so many great characters, so many beat-downs to deliver, this is a trio of games that gives you great value for the price (especially if you get it on Game Pass). For series old-timers or newcomers alike, the Yakuza Remastered Collection is a game every Xbox owner needs to check out.
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.
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.
This collection gives 3 games a needed update.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection finally allows PC and Xbox owners to play through the entire Kiryu Kazuma saga on a single platform, and the games have never looked better. And while some of the titles have aged better than others, it's a must-have for those who want the complete Yakuza experience.
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.
Whether you’re a Yakuza veteran with a desire to relive the franchise’s previous instalments, or a passive observer who has always wanted to dive into the series, the Yakuza Remastered Collection represents great value in a single package.
Maybe The Real Yakuza Were The Ports We Played Along The Way
While none of these games should be anyone's entry into the franchise, Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 Remastered are modernized and updated enough to not feel too out of place next to the more modern installments in the series, for those who are eager to see Kiryu Kazuma's story through to the end.
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.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection is about as perfect a rendition of the three included games as one could ask for.
This collection and the Kiwami remakes are an amazing opportunity to get into the Yakuza series with them all now available on PS4 and with Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon being just around the corner.
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.
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.
