Tempering Yakuza 3 Excitement

PS3Blog.net writes:

Remember Afrika? After extended begging for a western release, they finally shipped it, and no one cared. All that mystique that had been built up from extensive preview coverage and extensive begging instantly fizzled into nothing and everyone promptly forgot about it.

Having briefly played Afrika and completing Yakuza 2, I can personally vouch for Yakuza being a much better game that more people will actually like.

But I would still like to temper some expectations a little bit: (PS3, Yakuza 3)

Yakuza 3 will be much more widely reviewed, and from what I've played will get much better reviews, there's a big difference.

Dude
I have been asking for this forever. I got Yakuza 1/2 on day one and I'll get this too.

This blog fails so hard. Putting a highly acclaimed game like Yakuza 3 at the same level of an "exploration-of sort-nobody-cares-about" Africa.

Also not a fan of the article's structure. He spends the whole time talking about disadvantages to the game without a micron of context, and then says how great it is right at the end. I guess this could work in a different setting, but the way he wrote it made it a flop.

Honestly, my favorite part of the original Yakuza was the attention to detail they had for different kinds of whiskey. When I actually saw those later in stores, I had a bit of deja vu. Oh, that and the F You the protagonist sends to every bad guy before slamming them into a wall.

Europeans are still waiting for Afrika, btw.
And I honestly would prefer to see Yakuza Kenzan, I'm fascinated by the feudal Japan era.
But anyway, the first two Yakuza didn't break records on PS2 disregard the install base, I'm even surprised Sega continue to develop Yakuza games.

uh Afrika isnt a game. It was never promoted as one. It was promoted as a real life simulator.
