Judgement’s story is so chaotic that most players will be fighting through the main line trying to keep up, gliding past all the hilarious side content that the Yakuza series is known for. Without having to be tethered down by some sort of connection to the story, Side cases tend to fly off the handle with their absurd tales.
That’s what most of us came to the game for though, combined with all the unique abilities that being a detective gives us, Judgement has one of the biggest arrays of gameplay from the developer. From getting into drone battles to chasing down some of Kamurocho’s sleaziest criminals, there’s no shortage of madness to be had.

This may take a while as he’ll get faster as you lower his health but even when you do, the fun doesn’t stop. Players will then have to fight him on the ground and finally arrest him, turning the judge from a creep to a prisoner.
