Lost Judgment is a game where players take on the role of a detective investigating a crime scene.
Lost Judgment is a movie that was released in theaters on September 28th, 2018. The film has received mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike.
Takayuki Yagami returns to lead the assault in the sequel to 2018’s Yakuza spin-off, Lost Judgment, as the Dragon of Dojima fades from memory. It will be difficult for Lost Judgment to fall short of expectations, given the series’ trademarks of highly praised real-time fighting, one of the most famous video game environments ever created, and the sheer wackiness that only Yakuza games can offer. The foundations have been tried and proven for over a decade, but I didn’t leave with the same ear-to-ear cheesy smile that only the Yakuza games can give as the credits rolled on this newest adventure from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.
Review of a Mistaken Judgment
I was ecstatic — ecstatic – when I first played the original Judgment. I’ve been trying to persuade my gaming pals to join the Yakuza series for years; it’s a unique experience that fans would agree is unlike anything else in the industry. My efforts, however, were often in fruitless, since getting fresh players into a club with decades of backlog is a difficult task. The chance to change that was provided by judgment. It is the ideal starting point for veterans and newcomers alike, with a fresh perspective, a new attitude, and a magnificent new start. While it did provide an exciting start, it also confirmed many of my concerns about a sequel.
The main character, Takayuki, is the major idea difference between Yakuza and Judgment. While his main style of problem-solving is still throwing bikes at goons and DDT-ing thugs while on a skateboard (really, that finisher is crazy), he also carries with him legal and investigative expertise. As the creators try to immerse players in the critical thinking environment of a hot shot investigator, this changes many of the game’s fundamental components. This was a bit underwhelming in the first film, but they went all out in Lost Judgment. Regrettably, the end product is a tedious and irritating muddle.
The game’s detective parts are much more prominent in the sequel, although with little effort put into developing or extending these concepts. Looking for clues around an apartment or location is similar to the classic find-an-object games where you scan an image for a list of items. Because there isn’t a list, it’s like searching for a needle in a haystack without the needle. Some of these occurrences are trivial, readily handled, and worked out, while others are time-consuming. For example, you may spend ten minutes looking for an item you’ve previously seen but didn’t activate because you weren’t within range. These were issues I encountered when playing the X-Files FMV game in 1998.
Tak is looking for five security cameras that are dangling from the ceiling in different places on a crowded railway station platform during one section. You go on to the next section of the station and look for another five after you’ve located all five. Then there are five more. It adds nothing to the narrative, it’s not a puzzle that leaves you pleased at the end, it’s simply dull – a term I wouldn’t have associated with previous Yakuza games. This is only one of a slew of investigative scenarios that will irritate and boring you.
Throughout the game, this dull and uninspired approach to being a detective is repeated. Tak is tasked with slipping past a few guards in order to reach a certain location in new stealth portions. First, why am I slipping past these three buffoons when I just took out 42 of these thugs in hand-to-hand combat without breaking a sweat? Second, Yakuza’s movement system has never been exact; it’s almost part of the fun, while being a little clunky and stiff. When creeping, taking shelter, and concealing are contextual rather than manual, there is just too much opportunity for mistake. I’m not even going to bring up the parts of the game that required tailing subjects; I’d prefer never have to go through those again.
Perhaps you’ve seen a trend here: the franchise’s new components, which debuted with Lost Judgment, are having trouble. The more genuine, detective-based element adds a lot to the narrative, but it adds nothing to the gameplay.
However, when it comes to the more traditional aspects of the Yakuza series, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio does not disappoint. The fighting is probably the finest the series has ever seen, and I’ve always regarded it to be one of the best real-time hand-to-hand systems in gaming.
Takayuki’s fighting skill spans three major combat disciplines. Players may switch between Crane Style, Tiger Style, and Snake Style at any moment during battle, each with its own set of powers and graphics. When dealing with huge numbers of opponents, Crane Style is best utilized with sweeping strikes and broad kicks that impact a lot of enemies in a short area. Tiger Style is for inflicting agony and unleashing huge combo strikes, making it ideal for taking down monsters. Finally, when you simply want to be a badass, you utilize the Snake Style. When utilized properly, it enables Tak to counter almost any strike by mixing rapid movements with quick counter blows. It’s nearly as terrible as the Arkham games in terms of badassery.
The fighting in Lost Judgment is the finest the series has ever seen.
Some of the older animations might need some work, but the fighting is fantastic. In previous Yakuza games, I frequently grew weary of the continuous assaults and ambushes in the game’s latter levels. In Lost Judgment, on the other hand, I actively sought out every possible contact — and I relished every moment of it.
The narrative of Lost Judgment follows the Yakuza heritage of addressing important and sometimes extremely dark subject matter while also incorporating a wackiness of comedy that should never work but always does. Tak and Kaito are requested to help with a case of sexual harassment, which soon turns into a murder investigation and the murky criminal underbelly of Kamurocho and Ijincho. It doesn’t quite have the same punch as the original tale, and I thought I’d reached the right conclusion many times, but it just kept going. It’s still a fantastic tale, albeit one that I can only describe as a little letdown in comparison to the other games’ amazing storytelling.
The mini-games are the element of a Yakuza game that gets me the most excited about the possibility of a new release if I had to choose one. There’s a lengthy list that includes some of the greatest mini-games this industry has ever seen, like the amazing Cabaret Clubs in Yakuza 0, operating a company in Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Pocket Circuit Racing in Kiwami and Zero, Majima Construction (that theme song still rocks), and so on. Lost Judgment maintains that dedication by introducing a slew of additional mini-games, but I found myself hating almost all of them.
Of course, it is completely subjective. It wasn’t so much the games that I despised as it was the way they were delivered. I’m sure a lot of fans will jump at the chance to play new mini-games. There’s also boxing, an in-depth mini-game in which Tak explores a fascinating narrative while acquiring new skills and throwing punches. Death Races, in which Tak rides a modified motorcycle while smashing other riders off theirs, is like Road Rash on rails. The Robot Club’s mini-game, in which you govern territory using robots and solve Tetris-style puzzles. There’s a lot to choose from, but none of it compares to the franchise’s previous efforts.
The worst aspect of these games is their excessive reliance on side content. School Stories, a more in-depth and linked version of Side Stories, offers players an interesting look into the lives and problems of Seiryo High students. You must, however, finish all of the mini-games if you wish to fully explore those tales. If you like mini-games, you’re in for a treat; you’ll have a blast. If you’re not a fan, like me, you’ll spend days attempting to go through them all only to witness the game’s School Stories conclusion.
Lost Judgment is another excellent Yakuza game, although it is overshadowed by better ones. The fighting is great, the environment is still fascinating and full of characters, and the narrative is well worth telling – just don’t make me trail anybody else.

Review of PEGGO!
Pachinko machines, with their tiny steel balls, are a genuine phenomenon in Japan, but what if you don’t live there? PEGGO! by Tylar.io is an incremental pachinko-style game (perhaps the first of its type) with the realistic mechanics gamblers have come to expect. Is there a way to bring this national sport into the realm of video games, or is there no way to replace the original?
