5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air!, 28 Mar 2010

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Yakuza 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
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. There are "Heat" moves which are powerful devestating attacks that can only be done when your heat meter has peaked past a certain point.

Honestly, I could go on and on. If I were to talk about everything you're able to do in this game, this review would be very long. Understand this though, Yakuza 3 is an amazing game. It might not be to everyones taste. but those who give it a chance will love it! There is nothing more I can say, others than BUY IT!
