Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PC) Review

Apr 27, 2021

The final chapter in Kazama Kiryu’s story has at last made its way to the PC, bringing this portion of his story to the platform and sporting a set of improvements that make this a fitting way to complete out the core series’ availability for PC players. Already hailed as a critical success and a high point for the series, the question now is how well does this particular installment translate, especially given the stellar Yakuza: Like a Dragon‘s showing on PC in late 2020. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is the first Yakuza series entry to utilize the Dragon Engine, which we’ve seen do some impressive things since its initial release. In keeping with the excellent work that Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has been doing on all of its PC releases in recent history, Yakuza 6 runs impeccably well on PC is what I would consider the definitive version of an already excellent game.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life marks an end to the tale of series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. As sad as those words are to write, the sixth mainline title in this franchise leaves me with a gigantic grin on my face. Coming off the incredible Yakuza 0 and the first Yakuza remaster, Kiwami, Yakuza 6 is at a high point in the series popularity here in the states. Thankfully this latest entry in the series will continue that high as it gives fans more of what makes these titles great.
