Yakuza Remastered Collection Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It’s a great deal to see the missing chapters from the Kiryu saga, presented better than they ever have been before.
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.

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.

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 Collection is about as perfect a rendition of the three included games as one could ask for.
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.
This collection gives 3 games a needed update.
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.

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.
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 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.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection is anything but a total remake a la Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2.
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.

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.
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!”
