Finished it maybe a week ago, clocked in at 35ish hours, I only did 25 or so side stories, found most of them meh compared to say, Yakuza 6

wasn't a huge fan of the combat system (negatively affected what the series is all about, epic boss battles IMO) or Ijincho as the main setting but the characters (party especially) and the last third of the game were very strong IMO. I enjoyed the story a lot. Ichiban is a great MC.

I’m about to finish the game, and I agree with your impressions. I didn’t really mind the combat that much, but I do think it takes away from the epic boss battles that the series is known for.

The last third of the game has been strong. That seems to be typical for the Yakuza games. I got goosebumps during the part where someone attenpts to attack a certain patriarch with a knife. That scene was quite cheesy, and some would probably describe it as anti-climatic, but I loved it.

I feel like both Yakuza 6 and 7 save too much of their best parts for last, though. 0 did a much better job of scattering the tension and action scenes.

Man this series. Really nothing like it.

Finished Like A Dragon. Would have went for the platinum but True Final Millenium Tower is ridiculous. Got all other trophies.

Story is amazing, as good as 0, 1 and 2 and much better than the later numbered entries. Enjoyed the combat. Characters were the highlight, not just the party members, but all the supporting characters and villains too.

Spoiler:
Game went to another level after the Ryo Aoki reveal and Majima/Saejima boss fight. I kinda disagree about boss fights. Majima/Saejima, Kiryu, Sawashiro, and the final bosses all had the epic feel to it.

I hope SEGA never stops releasing Yakuza games.

I don’t think the game is quite as good as Yakuza 0 overall, but it’s a very good game, nonetheless. The boss battles are still good, but there’s something about them that didn’t quite feel the same to me. I’m not sure if it’s the new combat systemx or what it is, but they didn’t feel quite as bombastic as they did in past iterations. It might be that there’s no longer quite the same element of stress and tension in the battles themselves.
