Yakuza: Dead Souls is stupid. I spent a huge amount of time running around, pumping bullets into an endless stream of zombies, stopping only because I’d run out of ammunition. After I got bored of shooting waves of undead I went to an encircled spa where I could have a bath and play table tennis against a young prostitute. It was a simple timed prompt game, but between strokes I could stab the triangle button to stare at my opponents bouncing chest to fill up my ‘heat’ meter. After I’d ogled her enough I could unleash a devastating finishing shot, knocking her to the floor and opening her dressing gown so I could peek down her cleavage. The game ended with her in a state of undress and looking forward to seeing me again. Then I shot some more zombies.
