RipTen: Yakuza 4 offers a wandering storyline entrenched knee-deep into the sex, drama and violence of Japan’s underworld.
It has lots of Polish people!?
Yep, Polocks are like the Mexicans of Japan. lolz!
Haha, I've stared at that sentence for about 3 minutes and still have no clue what that could mean. Care to explain?
with good borderline great story with awesome combat
Hmm, the story alone mops the floor with 90% of all games that came out this gen. Why the hell did they give it a 7/10?
Guy was a bit feminist and thought it was oversexualised. Thought western audiences didn't need the hostess bars as he felt they were degrading. Can't believe he docked points for that, lol. They actually exist in Japan. This ain't about the west. Small beans anyways when western games like GTA4 have you paying prostitutes to work you over who you can also kill afterwards to get your money back. Yakuza has no such violence against women in the sex trade, but instead loses points for an optional dating sim/dressup. Whatever. Game doesn't even have nudity but gets docked like it does. Somewhere, Kratos is laughing. In a brothel.
I know I'm kinda LTTP here, but I just picked up Yakuza 3 on the cheap and I gotta say, I'm loving the hell out of it. Can't wait to pick up Y4 after reading all of the super positive reactions on the NeoGAF thread.
The story twists where so cliche. I love Yakuza, since the first one and they all have cliche twists. I think the series is better at building characters than having original twists.
Nagoshi is the man. I love the blurb he wrote in the Yakuza 4 mini book. He wants people to feel the Japanese culture along with a great fun experience. I agree. The characters personality are much better than FF XIII.
I never really like the Yakuza games. This one was a lot more intriguing to me than the previous ones.
