5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air! 28 Mar. 2010
By Tee 10
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Where to begin? This game is just amazing. There is so much to do at times it's almost overwhelming! For newcomers to the series fear not, as there is a very detailed recap video showing what happened in Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2. I am a newcomer and after watching those vids, understood exactly where 3 picks up from.

Let's take a look at some of the things available to do in this game.

Main story: Will take you around 20 hrs to complete IF you choose not to do any sub stories or take part in any of the mini games. I won't go into detail on the story as I don't want to spoil anything for potential buyers, but in short...the main story is extremeley DEEP and told very well.

Sub stories: A total of 101 sub stories are available and a lot of them are hilarious, to complete all 101 will take you a while.

Mini games: There are a total of 16 mini games to take part in. These include, Pool, Darts, Karaoke, Fishing, 2 Arcade games within "Club Sega", Poker, Roulette, Blackjack, Cee lo, Baseball batting cage etc etc.

Dating: There are a total of 9 girlfriends in the game which you can go out on dates with, you can take them to some of the minigames mentioned above, for a meal or even a spot of shopping! Each girl also has her own sub story to be completed once you have taken her out on 2 dates.

Exploring the cities: Throughout doing missions on the main story or sub stories, you are freely able to wander around each of the 2 cities. There is Kamarocho and Okinawa. Both contain a vast amount of activities to see and do, from shopping for items to taking part in mini games etc.

Brawling: Let's be honest, this is a brawler at heart, and probably the main feature that stands out. The fighting is amazing, very arcadey feel and easy to learn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yakuza memories 19 Mar. 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yakuza 3 is a fun game, although it's probably a less fulfilling experience than the second entry in the series - which, being released on PS2 after the PS3 and the other next generation consoles began to dominate the market, was mostly overlooked. This third entry into the series adds a few new minigames (although as noted by other reviewers some of these have been cut from the European/American version of the game) and has had a visual overhaul.

I'm about ten hours into the game and I've only scratched the surface of things to do. There are some frustrating elements: cut-scenes are sometimes interminable, and the missions involving Kazuma sorting out the problems of the orphans in his orphanage are sometimes more tedious than fun. However, there is plenty to explore and the combat is often most satisfying - even though it's usually a case of using no more than three or four buttons (block, strike, strong strike, grab/throw). Early in the game, combat is limited; but it gradually opens up as you progress through the narrative, with new moves and weapons being introduced.

The game's narrative is strong; in fact, the story - focusing on issues of community and economic regeneration - has more resonance than most of the Hollywood films I've seen in the past year or two. Kazuma has always been an interesting, conflicted protagonist, with his abandonment of the yakuza lifestyle comparable to Michael Corleone's relationship with the cosa nostra in The Godfather, Part III ('Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in').

I bought the game knowing that some of the content was cut (the hostess bars, some quiz mini-games, etc) and I'm thoroughly happy with the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, flawed but ultimately fun 4 Mar. 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Never have I engaged so much with a games story than this, its totally refreshing. The subject matter (so far, not finished it yet) is interesting enough to make you want to play on, but equally broken into bitesized chunks so you can get your head round everything thats going on. These breaks come in the form of mini-games (pool, golf, and so on) aswell as small, quite charming side missions that dont detract from the main story too far, but fill out this huge and mesmerising world with enough material for extended play. There are also elements of RPG involved here, weapon customisation, levelling up, abilities.

I must state at this point I have never played a yakuza game before, but this is a great place to jump in into the series. Yakuza 1 and 2's back story are instantly available from the main menu and accessable at any time at your safe house, but you should get the general idea of things as you start your playthrough.

I remember the demo coming out on PSN and I played through it and thought what a waste of time this seems to be, but it doesnt do the game just at all, Ive played for 8 hours or so and only completed 7% of the game, that doesnt frustrate me at all, although maybe it would other people.

By any stretch of the imagination this isnt the best game in the world, I mean there are numerous invisible walls and people may argue its too arcade like. Also random street battles are quite repetative but they usually result in a wodge of cash or some item for weapon customisation. The imperfections should be expected, alot of japanese games are like this.

All in all, for its very few frustrations, nicely crafted story, charming wit and bouts of insane crazyness this is a great game, and if you have a PS3 you should buy it.
