Yakuza Remastered Collection Reviews
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 superb games within an astounding collection that allows you to play the entire series from beginning to end
The Yakuza Remastered Collection finally makes being able to enjoy every Yakuza game on PS4 possible and that's fantastic. Although the games generally don't hold up as well as others in the series, they're all still memorable story-driven sandbox experiences.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection is anything but a total remake a la Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2.
The Yakuza games are very much their own thing, and are so densely packed with content that they may require some palate-cleansers in between. But for those who don’t mind doing some serious homework in the form of three mandatory amazing-in-their-own-right prequels, this collection is easily a must-play.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection for PC is exactly that; a set of remasters that give the old games just enough polish to run cleanly on the PC and ensure they can live on to be enjoyed for years to come. While there’s nothing particularly groundbreaking or exciting about the ports, and while I would have really liked seeing a bit more attention paid to crisping up UI elements and maybe polishing the pre-rendered cut scenes, the work on the ports is solid and the games run great and there’s honestly little to complain about. Whatever minor hiccups might exist are completely worth it, as the ability to play all three of these Yakuza games in higher fidelity is by itself a huge treat.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection on PC comes off as a gift to PC players looking to continue their Yakuza experience on the platform. It doesn’t contain any enhancements compared to the console release aside from a few added options, but it is still a damn good time. It may not be worth double-dipping, but rest assured, if this is your first time with this collection, then you’re getting the very best it has to offer.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection took its time in coming to the West, but the long wait is worth it to have the complete Dragon of Dojima's story on a single platform.
. For anyone who enjoys over-the-top beat ‘em ups and/or immersing oneself in the richness of Japanese culture, getting into the Yakuza series is an absolute must. For the price of one game, Yakuza Remastered Collection offers you triple the hostess romancing, arcade machine playing, face kicking fun.
As a whole, The Yakuza Remastered Collection is a welcome addition for anyone who’s a fan of the Yakuza franchise. It’s great to finally have all of the mainline games available on the same system. It’s just a shame these three games weren’t quite given the same amount of love that Kiwami and Kiwami 2 were. Still, three games for the price of one is definitely a steal.
It’s a great deal to see the missing chapters from the Kiryu saga, presented better than they ever have been before.
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!”
The Yakuza Remastered Collection is an excellent updated collection of three stellar games from the PS3’s lifetime.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection is an extremely valuable set of packages for newcomers to the series, as well as double-hearted fans of the series, and it is fully respected, despite its small flaws.

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.
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.
