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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Well I love it to bits. Its similar to Shenmue and the storyline is absolutly amazing. The story is well written and the heaps of cut-scene in the game. You wouldnt want to put your controller down once you start playing. The voice acting is very good as well. When you play this game you would be drawn to the main chractor very quickly.
Last great graphics game i played was Unchartered 2 on my super 50 inch LCD screen. This game is reliving the justice. At times colours are a lil too vivid (i guess its just the colourfulness of things in japan, e.g shops etc.). But the overall cutscene and cinema action is simply breath taking. Its like watching a movie with aps3 controller.
Since i have played lots of shooters and sports game in the past 12 months, a change was really good. This game is a relaxing one player game without competing with other people on the PSN network. Easy trophy games.
Loads of excellent charactors, mini-games to follow. Its not a GTA type game but more of a Shenmue (previously released on Dreamcast) type game. What i am saying is that there are not much game of this gnere type.
Only drawbacks soemtimes, plenty of reading since it is a English sub game. And constant people asking for fights on streets can be annoying, but this is not going to stop a good title game.
Buy it if you lover:-
-Good story with loads of cutscene
-Love Japanese culture
-Expects excellent graphics and amazing voice acting
-A rest from FPS games!
Overall a good game and highly recommended!
