How Long Does it Take to Beat Judgment?


Jumping into Judgment for the first time and wondering how long it will take to beat? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

A spin-off from SEGA’s popular Yakuza franchise, Judgment casts you as a private detective trying to track down a serial killer. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, however. While much of your time in Judgment is spent investigating scenes, tailing suspects and cracking the case, you’re free to wander around and enjoy the sights and sounds of Kamurocho. But how long will it take you to complete?

Just like the Yakuza series, you can waste time in the arcade, playing classics like Virtua Fighter 5 or, our personal favourite, the specially-made Kamuro of the Dead. There are tonnes of other side activities on offer, too, so how long Judgment takes to beat depends on how much of it you want to engage with.


If you focus on the main story, you’ll likely finish Judgment in around 25 hours. But if you want to get the most out of the game and engage in a lot of side content (and we advise that you do), you’ll likely beat Judgment in around 40 hours.

If you want to do absolutely everything the game has to offer, however, you’re likely looking at around 100 hours of content. There really is a lot to see and do here, so you’ll never be at a loose end of ways to pass the time.
