Game Informer Rating:

Rated 6.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The area and location beat the Gameplay My favourite parts were in Okinawa. The overall area is just beautiful, clear sea, white beach... Its like right out of an Anime. The worst part of the game is how much it occurs that people on the streets want to fight you. It should be noted that the whole game is Japanese with English subs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More fun times with Kazuma Yakuza 3 is pretty good. Your Kazuma the Dragon of Dojima, a former Yakuza who keeps getting brought back in to fix everything. In this game you run and orphanage and end up going back home, you know because your Kazuma the man of Awesomeness. The game is completely in Japanese when it comes to voice acting and at times it does get aggravating reading subtitles. This is an involving story after all but it does beat the dubbed voices that usually accompany games from Japan. Another thing though at least the story is really good and some of the kids in the orphanage will have you laughing. The combat is familiar but tighter than the PS2 releases. Also you will notice a huge bump up in graphical presentation. Some of the skin textures look phenomenal. If you enjoyed the first two games it is really safe to say your gonna enjoy this one just as much if not more. It has everything you loved about the first two and then some. Kazuma is a strong character and one that is likeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Majora's Mask of 7th gen consoles The plot is centered around a former Yakuza chairman (equivalent to a Cosa Nostra capofamiglia) who has since retired from the Yakuza life to open up an orphanage in Okinawa. Being an orphan himself and having been adopted by a Yakuza lieutenant named Shintaro Fuma, he seeks to care for the kids at the orphanage just as his foster father cared for him. Things get hairy when his past catches up to him though and he once more finds himself flying back to Tokyo to settle some unfinished business. The gameplay itself is pretty good for an action-adventure game but becomes a cake walk once you get used to the mechanics even on the harder difficulties. A wide array of un-modifiable temporary and modifiable permanent weapons along with an EXP and level up system give it some RPG elements though half the game isn't centered around the gameplay. What really sells this game is the deep level of NPC interaction and large expanse of unique side quests that each have their own story behind them. You'll be doing everything from beating up con artists to solving murder cases all while meeting many potential allies in the process. The large amount of NPC interaction allows you to effectively bond with the characters in the game including its protagonist and helps to further dramatize the story. When you play this game, you don't feel so much like you're playing a game so much as you feel like you're thrust into the middle of a dramatic thriller movie where you beat up bad guys as you watch the hooking plot unfold. The music in the game (especially the karaoke bars) is equally great with music by Hidenori Shoji ranging stylistically from enka (modern music styled after traditional music) to modern ryukoka (J-pop). The graphics are great for a 2009 game and the option for new game + gives it good reason to be played through once more. Overall, the large amount of NPC interaction coupled with a high level of bonding with said NPCs allows Yakuza 3 to succeed in much the same way that preceding games such as Majora's Mask for the N64 had. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who appreciates a good storyline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very fun I like this game it is very fun. I really like the gameplay and I like the graphics a lot as well. This game is very fun, but why can't we dub it I mean you have to either know Japanese or your reading the subtitles. The videos take forever so you might want to go to options and switch on skip events.For the most part this is an amazing game I recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Actually not just pretty good, very good. This game is long with a rich and fulfilling story, plus there is so much other stuff to do, darts, pool, karaoke. The story does get slow at times and the game does get a little repetitive if you are just playing the story, but for 20 bucks you cant go wrong your money goes a long way with this game, i highly recommend it and i cant wait to play yakuza 4.
