Leon from Plus XP writes "I didn’t get into the Yakuza series until after the release of the most recent main entry in the series, Yakuza 4. It’s always a series I’d seen in stores, but rarely one I’d hear other people talking about. Perhaps it’s due to the lack of marketing, or perhaps it’s because the series is a PlayStation exclusive – with many people owning Xbox 360′s as their ‘main’ console – but whatever the reason, I was extremely glad that I gave it a shot. Yakuza 4 was a joy to play – a tale of four individuals whose paths intertwined in the city of Kamurocho, as police and Yakuza groups tussled over money and power. There wasn’t a single plot between the four lead characters that I didn’t enjoy, and how they all connected really inspired me – delving into all aspects of Kamurocho – the Yakuza clans, the lives of it’s citizens, it’s seedy underbelly and the inner-workings of it’s police force."
