Yakuza Kiwami 2 Review

Yakuza Kiwami 2 Review

Review by Andy

While It was only a few months ago we bid farewell to Kiryu in Yakuza 6, SEGA has now dropped a complete remake of the second game in the acclaimed Yakuza series, Yakuza Kiwami 2.

Kiwami 2 picks up about a year after the first game, which received its remake last year, with Kiryu  still dealing with the events that led to the loss of his childhood friend and sworn brother Nishkiyama. 

He is sucked back in to the Yakuza life he wanted to leave behind, and as such Haruka, the daughter of the only women Kiryu loved, is absent from the majority of the story this time around as she goes back to stay at the Sunflower Orphanage while Kiryu heads on back to Kamurocho. The game will also give you a little refresher of the previous games events if needs be.

Marvel's Spider-Man

Spider-Man has seen many game iterations over the years.  He translates perfectly to the video game space, from his traversal across the city to the way he pummels enemies with his acrobatic feats. This is Insomniac Games first foray into the Marvel space coming hot off their release of 2016’s Ratchet and Clank. They have entered Spider-Man’s world to show you their vision of what this arachnid crime fighter is capable of. Insomniac has shown in the past that feeling of movement through a world is important as shown in 2014’s Sunset Overdrive. With the freedom to tell their own story, has Insomniac pulled off a new age of Spider-Man and possibly the future of subsequent games? Let’s find out, spoilers ahead.
