Product Description

Yakuza 3 is the next cinematic chapter in the prestigious video game saga offering an authentic, gritty and often violent story set in modern day Japan. Following the events of the previous game, Kazuma and Haruka (his adopted daughter) have left Kamurochoto to seek a new life in Okinawa where they manage an orphanage for children. However, their peaceful life is soon interrupted when a series of events unfold pulling Kazuma back into the shadowy past he thought he had left behind. Making its first appearance exclusively on the PlayStation 3 platform, the rich story and vibrant world of Yakuza 3 lets players engage in intense brutal clashes within the streets of Okinawa, and the pulsating and often dangerous city of Tokyo where only the strongest will survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally 'Shenmue' Reincarnated March 11, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Back in 2000, there was a little unknown gem on Sega Dreamcast called 'Shenmue', which became a huge financial flop despite the universal critical praises. Its sequel only showed up in Japan and later ported to the original X-Box after Dreamcast's demise. Shenmue was the game that invented QTE (Quick Time Event) that are so frequently used by many games like Resident Evil 4, Heavy Rain and God of War series.

Yakuza 3 is the third installment of the popular Japanese action adventure game series by Sega that inherit all the characteristics of Shenmue series. But it is this installment that finally exceeds everything Shenmue tried to be in spades with so much more contents and depths. Yakuza series was understandably not well-known outside Japan at all due to its quirky and idiosyncratic eccentricity stemming from distictively Japanese culture. Make no mistake, this is one of the most popular game in Japan. With population half as big as the U.S. but so much diversities in different genres of video games (each game is targeted speficically for intended demographic rather than potential demographic as here in the U.S.), half-million copies sold is viewed as bona-fide success. With sensible budget and half-million copies means good profits and the next sequel. The fourth one has just been released in Japan. There have been tons and tons of games on PS and Nintendo consoles that never make outside Japan, and Yakuza series are one of the rare ones that are available here in the U.S.

Warning to fans of GTA or the likes and JRPG; Yakuza 3 is not a console RPG or GTA-clone, as many would describe it.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I feel very torn in writing this review, as the release of Yakuza 3 in the US is the big carrot we must chase to get Yakuza 4 (which comes out in Japan a mere week after this release in the US) released stateside.

SEGA, I need you guys to pay attention. There's obviously been some miscommunication and misunderstanding in how this all should work. Ryu Ga Gotoku 3, the original Japanese title, is a fine and stellar game. It has a fantastic story, excellent mini games, substories and submissions to follow, and does what I feel is serve as an excellent representation of life in Japan, more to the point of life as a Japanese gangster.

The seedy underbelly and the familiar touches to anyone who has been to either Okinawa or Kabuki-cho in Shibuya are going to see massively detailed recreations at work here.

There was clearly a lot of love poured into the Japanese release. The US release, Yakuza 3, seems to have been the victim of time and poor project management. SEGA dodged questions for months regarding a western release of Yakuza 3, and when they finally announced their intentions, did so with the heaviest reservations possible.

To back this up a little bit, SEGA has had a troubled past with the series on the PS2 in the US. It's never been a high selling title, touted as a GTA game set in Japan. It's not really. It's basically Shenmue with more fighting, more gangsters, and a lot of seedy underbelly. There's no looking for sailors here or running off to look for a mirror. Your character is haunted by the violence surrounding his life and wants to be rid of the life he can never leave.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Underworld Worth Diving Into May 4, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You're being surrounded by a bunch of yakuza punks in a small children's park. They were hassling a woman, trying to take her
back to their boss, until you and your buddy stepped in. Soon, you're fending off these five or six thugs with kicks, uppercuts
and curb stomps. All of a sudden, when it just comes down to you and one other punk, you spy a pair of pliers lying on the
ground; you don't know why they're there, but you don't give it a second thought and quickly snag them. In a heartbeat, you've
taken the last punk in a headlock and messily ripped one of his teeth from his mouth, throwing him to ground and watching him
roll around in pain. This isn't the latest blockbuster action flick; it's just one of the many crazy moments from the superb world of "Yakuza 3."

Story: A-

An ex-yakuza chairman, Kazuma Kiryu left behind his path of violence and destruction in order to open up an orphanage on the
island of Okinawa. After a brief period of peace, he's soon sucked back into the world of violence when a developer threatens
to run him and the orphans he cares for out of their home, in order to build a resort and military base so as to stimulate
Okinawa's waning economy. This sets off a series of events both serious and lighthearted in nature. Moments of violence
and gritty crime drama are interspersed with missions which involve taking care of your kids and finding food for a stray dog.
Unlike the plot of "Grand Theft Auto IV", which was a more or less monotoned look at the criminal underworld, "Yakuza 3" crafts
a truly complex and intricate web of a plot, laced with heart-pounding action sequences and more conspiracies than you can
shake a stick at.
