Yakuza 3 Review


Yakuza has been a sleeper hit on the PS2. How will it fair on the PS3?

Replay value with the Yakuza series has always been pretty high as there is so much to do, and so much that you get rewarded for. The main game alone takes a good 20 hours to beat, but all the sidequests, mini-games and items to collect adds an...

Yakuza 3


After a two year wait and several new prescriptions for blood pressure medication, western fans of the Yakuza series are finally getting what they want. Sega has acquiesced to the series' fanbase and begrudgingly released Yakuza 3 for territories...

Yakuza 3, in short, is worth every penny. It contains a compelling story, intense beat-em-up action and more fun than most games dream of providing. It has a few lulls here and there and some may be put off by its Japanese roots and styles, but give it...

Yakuza 3


There is so much to do in Yakuza 3 - fishing, darts, pool, golf, arcade games and kicking the crap out of the constant stream of idiots that think they can take you on. So much so that it frequently beggars belief.

Yakuza 3 Review [PS3]


After long-time petitioning by fans, Sega have finally localized Yakuza 3 for the PAL and NTSC regions. Considering how heavily the series touches on Japanese culture, be it the quaintness of the hostess bars, the karaoke mini-games, or the down-right...

Intensely fun arcade brawler ; Remarkable depth with side-missions and mini-games ; Lots of incentive for replay

Unintuative, annoying chase sequences ; Story seems a little convoluted at times

Yakuza 3 might scare off new players to the established franchise due to the extent of its story, but beyond this superficiality they are bound to find a wealth of appeal in the fun combat, the quantity of sidequests and the remarkably beautiful...

Review: Yakuza 3 (Playstation 3)


You can also spend time goofing around with various mini-games, like a crane game that allows you to collect stuffed animals, a golf game that you can compete in for cash, a batting cage, a bowling center, and other fun things. Some things have been...

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...

A review. The Yakuza series is big in Japan, seriously big - think GTA for the West and you have your scale comparison!  In fact the only

Yakuza 3


Over the course of three games, the Yakuza series has always yielded mixed reception in the Western market, failing to solidify itself as a third-person action powerhouse amongst stiff competition. Who would have thought that running a muck in the...

After years of playing second fiddle in the action-adventure genre, Yakuza 3 finally makes some waves with an engaging, cinematic experience that will punch you right in the face, but in awesomely brutal fashion.

Yakuza 3 Review


Yakuza 3 is exactly what you'd expect. Unfortunately, that's its greatest weakness.

Hardcore gamers who grew to love grand adventure games from a decade ago will have a blast. The game mechanics are tired, but there's nostalgic value to it. Fans of the series will also enjoy learning more about the characters. None of this negates the...
