i loved part 1 but was very disappointed when the others had no english voice acting

Awesome because i didnt like controlling the other characters in Yakuza 4

Five city?! darn! this game will be big, real big!

btw, i knew Nagoshi really love Kiryu (he mention it that Kiryu is like a Mario), and i too like Kiryu bad ass characters, but i want more spotlight for Akiyama or Taniyama. I loved their combat style!

Ryu Ga Gotoku isnt Ryu Ga Gotoku without Kazuma Kiryu.

Haha, i knew dude. But i want some spotlight for another character besides Kiryu. Maybe Ukyo Tatsuya from Black Panther will make an appearence. His a bad ass too.

Seeing as they established 3 strong new leads in Y4 which is no easy feat (see the Raiden backlash in MGS2), I hope they keep at least a couple of those charachters active for Y5 and beyond. loved playing as them. Freshened up the combat and stories quite a bit. You can only do so much with a retiree and his orphanage, heh. The Akiyama/Taniyama VS Kiryu fight in the sewers was really cool, as was fighting against Kaz as Saeijima.

Yeah that Kiryu vs Akiyama & Taniyama was awesome. There is indeed a reason why Kazuma is known as the Dragon of Dojima!

I have no doubt that we'll be seeing the Y4 crew back in Y5 although probably in a less controllable state.

They should bring back Kaoru (Y2) though, I miss her :/

Kiryu is pretty much like Kenshiro of the modern era. I just wish he knew how to make heads and bodies explode with his fingertips.

They'd better do something significantly new with the engine for 5.

The whole 'totally non-interactive environment' that has been in the game since the PS2 games is well past its sell by date.

Great stories though (although I passed on the zombie game - looked garbage).
