While most of the story takes place in Kamurocho, Hiroshima is just as memorable. The locations have been created with amazing amount of attention to detail.

As compared to previous entries Kiryu has only one fighting style which can be upgraded over the course of the game with skills. Even the ability to craft your own weapons has been stripped of, though the environment is littered with weapons of mass destruction. You can even avoid few fights by buying certain equipment.

To avoid fights from feeling monotonous, there is heat actions. As soon as the Heat Guage is full you can unleash a flurry of attacks by hitting triangle. The combat does feel easy at times but Yakuza 6 has difficulty options and we woul recommend you to play the game at higher difficulty.
