Have You Played Judgment Yet? PS4 Prologue Demo Gives You the Chance

You can give Judgment a try right now on PS4 with its new prologue demo.

Maybe you've never played a Yakuza game, maybe you're simply waiting for a price drop, or maybe you just don't know whether it's worth a play. Whatever the reason you haven't played Judgment yet, you can now give the game a go via a brand-new prologue demo on PS4.

Taking place in the same location as most of Sega's critically-acclaimed Yakuza series, Judgment puts players in the shoes of Takayuki Yagami as tries to solve a series of murder cases in Kamurocho. Of course, this comes with a hefty dose of minigames and miscellaneous side content meant to eat all of your time and will to actually stop playing the game.

Despite the Kiwami remakes, the Yakuza series is intimidating to jump into for some. With six mainline games under its belt (seven counting Yakuza 0, which you should play), two full remakes, and a handful of spin-offs, the uninitiated may look at it as an impossible mountain.

Judgment isn't just its own story separate from Kiryu Kazuma, it's the perfect stepping stone into this long-running and absolutely engrossing style of game.

If you haven't given any of these games a shot, hop on over to the PlayStation Store and give the prologue demo a shot to see what all the hubbub's been about Sega's brawler-adventure series.

Give our Judgment review a gander as well, just to get an idea of what you're about to get into. It's hard to imagine someone not enjoying Judgment, frankly.

Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.
