Kazuma and Haruka, having severed their ties to the Yakuza world, have left Kamurocho to seek a new life in Okinawa where they manage an orphanage for children. However, their peaceful life is soon interrupted when a series of events unfold pulling Kazuma back into the shadowy past he thought he had left behind, in order to protect those he loves.

Making its first appearance exclusively on PS3, the rich story and vibrant world of Yakuza 3 lets players engage in intense brutal clashes within the streets of Okinawa, and the vibrant and often dangerous city of Tokyo where only the strongest will survive.

Where to begin? This game is just amazing. There is so much to do at times it's almost overwhelming! For newcomers to the series fear not, as there is a very detailed recap video showing what happened in Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2. I am a newcomer and after watching those vids, understood exactly where 3 picks up from.

Let's take a look at some of the things available to do in this game.

Main story: Will take you around 20 hrs to complete IF you choose not to do any sub stories or take part in any of the mini games. I won't go into detail on the story as I don't want to spoil anything for potential buyers, but in short...the main story is extremeley DEEP and told very well.

Sub stories: A total of 101 sub stories are available and a lot of them are hilarious, to complete all 101 will take you a while.

Mini games: There are a total of 16 mini games to take part in. These include, Pool, Darts, Karaoke, Fishing, 2 Arcade games within "Club Sega", Poker, Roulette, Blackjack, Cee lo, Baseball batting cage etc etc.

Dating: There are a total of 9 girlfriends in the game which you can go out on dates with, you can take them to some of the minigames mentioned above, for a meal or even a spot of shopping! Each girl also has her own sub story to be completed once you have taken her out on 2 dates.

Exploring the cities: Throughout doing missions on the main story or sub stories, you are freely able to wander around each of the 2 cities. There is Kamarocho and Okinawa. Both contain a vast amount of activities to see and do, from shopping for items to taking part in mini games etc.

Brawling: Let's be honest, this is a brawler at heart, and probably the main feature that stands out. The fighting is amazing, very arcadey feel and easy to learn. There are "Heat" moves which are powerful devestating attacks that can only be done when your heat meter has peaked past a certain point.

Honestly, I could go on and on. If I were to talk about everything you're able to do in this game, this review would be very long. Understand this though, Yakuza 3 is an amazing game. It might not be to everyones taste. but those who give it a chance will love it! There is nothing more I can say, others than BUY IT!

 Outstanding game

Every time i mention this game, or see it being mentioned on the internet, the obligatory comparison to Shenmue or GTA gets bought up. In all honesty, those two games are not really anything like this, although it has SOME similarities to the former game, nothing gameplay wise, more like the setting and i suppose the freedom aspect. This game is its own world and has set up an amazing series of games with deep involving storyline.

Never played this before? Me neither, although watching the 25 odd minute re-cap videos for the first two games make me wish i had. They looked pretty damn good. Anyway, even if you are a new comer all you need to do is watch those videos. Naturally they dont explain every single aspect to the first two games in great detail, but you get the jist of where the story is at and whats going on in the third one. Its pretty nice they did that really, otherwise you'd be scowering on YouTube for an hour or so trying to find informative videos about it, either that or sit there for a long time watching a walkthrough or something.

The graphics are pretty nice, although they look like they could do with a bit of Anti-aliasing, there are quite a lot of jaggies on the models and objects, kinda lowers the lush look of the world a bit (although this looks like its been corrected on the 4th game). On the other hand the cinematic graphics are outstanding (think of Metal Gear Solid 4).

If you enjoy beat em' ups with a bit of free roaming adventure and heavy narrative and story, this is definitely worth the price, the length of the game feels pretty long and there is so much to do in the world that has been created. Actually cant wait for the 4th one to come out over here (if it ever does). Definitely worth your time.

This has to be by far one of the best games out on the PS3 it is even better then Uncharted 2. The Story is fantastic and you will love every character in the game. Even if you have not played the old Yakuza titles it does not matter.

Graphics 10/10
Gameplay 10/10
Sound 10/10
Story 10/10

 One of the best games this year!

I have completed many games this year so far, Mass Effect 2, Bayonetta, Heavy Rain, God of War 3 and a few others...but Yakuza 3 is the game that I find myself thinking about the most. It has such a rich world, with so many things to see and do.

SEGA have created a world which feels alive, a fantastic story, great characters, loads of minigames and a great fighting system with so much depth. This really is an amazing game!
