  • Summary: The game is fine but h as a few problems. First of all trying to complete the story takes a while and i dont think thats because of all the action you can do its because of it giving cutsceans that take about 10 min apiece. Combat works fine a bit easy.

Entertaining

Aaron Rapozo, Amazon

  • Summary: To get the most out of this game, you first have to be at least slightly into the quirks and style of the modern day Japanese. As noted, it's been called a very Japanese game for Japanese people. Nonetheless I was amused. While at first I was hoping for a more Godhand style fighting with customization for my style, I found that the base for this game definitely had enoough variety if you happened to take the time to figure it out.

Neutered? Yes. But still very, very fun! Buy it!

  • Summary: I've only written a few product reviews on Amazon, but felt the need to chime in here. Yes, the game has been modified from its original Japanese presentation (about 20 hrs. of content cut from what was an 80 hr. game in Japan). And, yes, some of the cuts were obviously made to save on production costs and not because the material "isn't socially relevant" for a Western audience.

Released in the US, but with many caveats to consider...

A. Strader, Amazon
21 July 2010
  • Summary: 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.

A great game that should not be overlooked

Adrian Jenkins, Amazon
21 July 2010
  • Summary: I saw this game in a local K-Mart (yes, they still exist), and decided to pick it up for ten bucks. If I knew then what I know now, I would have paid 60 for it. The fact is, Yakuza 3 is one of the gems of the system. I don't know about the Japanese version, or the cuts that were made. I would assume that the dating mini-game is expanded considerably. If this is the case, it's one of the best things Sega could have done. Maybe Mahjongg was fun, though.

Yakuza 3

Paul Shade, Game Informer
11 July 2010
  • Summary: Yakuza 3 is the next installment of the hardly regarded Yakuza series.  Does the Dragon of Dojima strike with deadly efficiency or does he lose his way and get beat down by the gangs? Gameplay Yakuza 3 has an interesting play style to it.  It is an action game at heart but feels like a small open world RPG.  By small I mean the two different cities are very small areas compared to a GTA or RDR but they still have a ton of stuff to do and places to go.

Movie? or a Game?

M. Whitehead, Amazon
24 June 2010
  • Summary: This was one of the best stories I've ever been through in a video game. From start to finish you are drawn in. The argument will be made that the game play is basic and too easy but the game play isn't really what a game like this is all about. The creators of this game didn't want to make a game where you might get stuck half way through and give up. They wanted to create a story that you pick up and continue to turn pages until it is done.

Old school beat 'em up with RPG elements

The Gamin Geek "Gamin-Geek", Amazon
19 May 2010
  • Summary: In a single word--- FUN!!! This game reminded me a lot in premise of the old NES title River City Ransom except done with modern tech. It's effectively a beat 'em up game with RPG elements with a strong driving narrative. The story is probably the game's strongest point which is well told and loaded with good humor. The art direction is fantastic and it faithfully recreates Tokyo's red-light district Kabukichô.
