Review of the Lost Trial Review, all scores

We are a little more than a week away from the release Loss of judgment, The sequel to Ryu Ga Gotoku’s 2018 action game, it’s time to take a glimpse of the critical reception so far.

The story of the lost trial takes place after the events of the main game-in Kamurocho and Ijincho-and the private detective Takayuki Yagami seeks to solve the murder case.


As Yakuza: Like a Dragon (and future games) turned to turn-based combat, Ryu Ga Gotoku decided to turn Judgment into its action series. Fans of Yakuza and the original Judgment should be familiar with fighting, with three different fighting styles to switch, and some trailing missions.

The Lost Trial will land on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on September 24, but owners of the Digital Deluxe or Digital Ultimate Edition can play on September 21. The original game has never landed on the PC, and this game does not look like it will not.

As early as July, the dispute between Takuya Kimura (played by Iori Takayuki) and Sega was exposed. Considering what mod makers can do with characters, it revolves around the former’s disapproval of watching games on PC. It is not clear how/whether this is resolved, but it is safe to say that it may even prevent Sega from developing more games in the series.
