Yakuza 3 Review (DualShockers)

Joel Taveras of DualShockers writes, "Konichiwa! A few months ago Al and myself had the opportunity to attend a media event in New York City that showcased upcoming titles from SEGA.

Gameplay wise its the best in the series well never mind Yakuza 4 is. Story wise Yakuza 3 is probably the worst in the series just felt rushed compared to Yakuza 1 and 2.

The open ended nature of this game makes the gameplay almost never ending.

Definitely going to give this a shot when I get some free time.

Not a bad review. Honestly, I think this score is great for this game and kind of justifies me picking it up. A combo of Shenmue and Streets of Rage is ok in my book.
