PS3 Import Review – Yakuza: Kenzan

PlayStation LifeStyle
17 April 2011
  • Summary: Kazuma Kiryu takes it back to the old schcool – like the 400 year old school.
  • Pros: + Story is all kinds of awesome, especially for fans of both samurai lore and Yakuza games, +/- Familiarity with the Japanese language necessary
  • Cons: - Combat leaves something to be desired, +/- Familiarity with the Japanese language necessary

Adult Swim Games Portal

30 July 2010
  • Excerpt: For those of you who have not been exposed to the offbeat brilliance that is Adult Swim, let us fill you in. Adult Swim is the name given to Cartoon Network’s late-night programming, filled with animations ranging from the perverse to the surreal, from the sublime to the gor-blimey. Squidbillies, Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law and Robot Chicken are all Adult Swim productions, along with their flagship programme (or the most popular at least), Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Test Yakuza 3

Generation NT
26 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Yakuza en haute définition, ça donne quoi ? Et bien un troisième opus qui respecte ses aînés, et peut-être même un peu trop. Les habitués reprendront vite leurs marques, mais finiront peut-être par se demander si de marquantes innovations ne les auraient pas dérangés. La première partie du jeu, surprenante (niaise ?) mais non dénuée d'intérêt, pourra, il est vrai, les déstabiliser.
  • Pros: Yakuza 3 enfin en Europe !, 4 DLC + un CD audio offerts avec le jeu, Graphiquement encore au niveau, Une première partie de jeu reposante, Des combats plus pêchus, Des minis-jeux qui donnent envie de s'y attarder
  • Cons: Des sous-titres restés en anglais, Suppression des bars à hôtesses, de certaines missions et autres activités par rapport à la version japonaise, Chargements parfois lourds, La HD, et puis ?

Yakuza 3 Review

23 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The Far East has an undeniably huge influence on video game design; from quirky role-playing experiences such as Shin Megami Tensei and Disgaea, to huge, million-selling franchises such as Final Fantasy and Pokémon. No other country has such profound ties to our beloved industry as Japan. As a setting itself however, Japan is a fairly under represented location in games, with but a handful of titles set in a virtual land of the rising sun.

Pinball FX 2

Hooked Gamers
23 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Pinball FX 2 is a pinball game, straight up. If you love pinball games, then you will love this, if you don’t you won’t. It is perhaps one of the more realistic pinball games, but it really lacks diversity. The game needs something to make it stand out and get other players who would not normally play pinball to give it a go.

Review: Yakuza 3 (Playstation 3)

Diehard GameFAN
19 July 2010
  • Summary: : Yakuza 3 is one of the better games released so far this year and one of the best exclusive games released on the Playstation 3, and so long as you can overlook the few issues the game has, it’s worth every penny. The writing is strong and the characters are convincing, and the visual and aural presentation are among the best the console has to offer.

The Dragon of Dojima's Looking a bit Paunchy

12 June 2010
  • Conclusion: "You have learned the art of pole dancing.
  • Pros: Playing baseball with kids on the beach.
  • Cons: The slow trickle of new moves makes combat painfully stale.
